Have you ever had a client thank you for saying no?

Declining the wrong kind of work is an important step toward getting the clients that you want. Clients want to work with artists who are psyched about their tattoo idea. 

My work is bright, colourful, and illustrative - but I used to have so many requests for black and grey, fine line script, and all kinds of things that just didn't make sense for me. Learning to say no the right way was a huge step toward building a clientele that I love! 

And just like magic, when you learn to set boundaries, those 'not quite right' requests slow down and eventually stop altogether. For real, 99% of the time, people just don't ask me for that stuff anymore.
