Tattoo Conventions should offer Active Military and Legally Disabled Discounts. Most of these people are tattooed. It is good Business. Many Disabled bring 2-6 people to the shows with them who pay full price. Military personnel rarely travel alone. The presence of Disabled and Military people increases the credibility of the event. Everyone wins.
I was born with Rare Birth Defects. I’m Disabled & live on a very small Fixed Income. Disabled and Active Military all live on Fixed Incomes. It is very hard to live on a Fixed Income. I have known hundreds of Disabled People who wanted to go to Tattoo Events but had little money. They would have gone if there was a Discount. They would have brought all their full price paying friends too. Everyone would have a good time. The show would have more people in attendance and made more money.
Disabled, and Military people are the most loyal and supportive people you can have at a Tattoo Event. They have more energy at events. The shows give them a reason to go out and meet people who like tattoos like they do. Active Military personnel is a great thing at any show. They all deserve the Discounts. It is all about RESPECT.
How much does it cost to give Discounts to 10-30 people at a show? It is not like 500 Disabled and Active Military will flood a show. Not that many show up. Those who do, bring many others with them who pay full price. That 10-30 discounts can get you 50-100+ full paying friends that go with them. Add the positive advertising from promoting these Discounts, you can increase the attendance of the event even more. There is no way you can lose money with a few well-deserved Discounts.
To all Tattoo Event Organizers, Please offer Disabled & Active Military discounts at your Events. It will help your show. You will have more people. The Media will give you more Respect.
