    Advertisements
    a friend of mine has been a tattoo/piercing apprentice for over a year now and she's going to be come up to visit this week (she lives in miami now) and i asked if she would pierce my nose for me and asked her how much it would cost. since shes still an apprentice she said it'd be free i would just have to tip her. she pierced my sisters nose last year so i trust her doing it. how much would you tip? i have no idea what would i would give

    Nose piercings are 40-50$ usually, so I'd tip like 8-10$ probably.

    if she's coming up i assume she's bringing her own needle and jewelry and whatnot... cost of that plus tip... i'd say 30 bucks.

    I find it odd that someone would say "it's free but you have to tip"... although, I guess legally she can't really "charge" you. I'd probably give her 10 bucks, but IDK what nose piercings cost, usually.

    I to thought the comment was weird. I paid $25 to get mine done and that's cheap!!

    Depending on how good of friends we are I'd say $10-$20

    If it were me and the quality was the same I would give her how much I would have paid and tipped a professional.

    If money is tight though then min. $10.

    shes been doing free piercings and stuff since she started as an apprentice. she needs it more for portfolio and practice than she does for money

    Nose piercings can range anywhere from $20-$50, depending on where you go. So lets say, she "charged" $40, a 15% tip would only be $6 & 20% being $8.

    So I would only give her $10-15.
