Tunaitis explained that there’s this antiquated stigma around opening a tattoo shop and the crowd that it will attract. Mix that with state regulations, government stipulations, and real estate expenses – and the fact that Tunaitis was able to open a second successful location for his shop is a true feat in itself.
“Real estate is actually getting harder and harder, more and more expensive to try to rent. So, if you could find a place that’s not literally a few thousand dollars a month for a small location, you’re really lucky at this point,” said Tunaitis.
Fact: You’re always going to encounter barriers no matter what stage you’re at in your business journey. But your ability to overcome and the attitude you have about it is what will carry you to your path to success.
