As someone with two tattoos, I find this very compelling. I like Adam Suerte’s approach to this sensitive subject. He’s the one who stated that he will warn his customers of the risks of the potential tattoo (like breakups), but at the end of the day, if the customers want the tattoo, he’ll make it a tattoo that will be easy to cover up in the future. By attempting to dissuade his client, he’s done his job of providing his professional opinion. In a way, it’s better that he doesn’t turn them away to another artist, because at least Suerte is able to make the tattoo in a color that can be covered up. If they went somewhere else, that artist may have done it in a way that would be irreversible. I do believe that artists have the right to refuse anyone, but in Suerte’s case, he did the right thing by tattooing the thing he didn’t necessarily agree with.
