Advice/Opening A Tattoo&B.P. Studio

by NKP1988 - 10/13/13 1:47 PM

I've begun developing a business plan to open my own tattoo and body piercing studio. The studio will also offer permanent and non-permanent makeup services, as well as a massage service later on. My five year plan is to also develop a clothing store and rockabilly-themed cafe as an addition. I'd like some advice from other tattoo and body piercing shop owners on how you started out, things that worked well or didn't work well for you, etc. Thanks!
