When to use a booking system for tattoo shops?

If you run a small independent tattoo shop it’s a good thing to be mindful of your time. Especially if you operate in a small space. Using a booking system to take reservations is a great way to streamline your tattoo studio.

The free software from Vev provides a booking link that you can use on social media, your website, or even on the front door as a QR code. It basically functions like a calendar where people can see when you are available and book a slot.

If you want, you can also require an online down payment to hold the reservation. Research has shown that this is one of the best ways to combat no-shows.

Working with a booking system allows you to:

  • Run your business with ease
  • Don’t have to deal with walk-ins
  • Have a great overview of your upcoming workday

How to take reservations for a mobile tattoo studio?

Does your tattoo shop run on four wheels? Say no more. Vev is a great reservation system to make things permanent with. Mobile tattoo studios can set up their shop in two different ways using Vev.

Operate from a fixed location

Even if you don’t have a physical address, you can still communicate an address that you are close to or across from. If your fixed location rotates, it’s best to create multiple pages per location that you operate from. They are all linked to your account, which allows for easy switching. Just make sure you set the correct opening hours per location to avoid confusion among your clients.

Operate on the go

If you are truly on the road, we also got your back! After you sign up, you can define a radius of a certain number of car/truck minutes from your base location. This way you only allow bookings from people within your service area. Out of the box, Vev understands that it takes time to get from point A to point B, so the appropriate travel time is incorporated into each and every booking.

Can I run my tattoo shop all from a mobile device?

Yes! Vev is designed to work perfectly from a mobile device. No matter if you have an iPhone, Android, or a different mobile device - it’ll all work! Bigger screens like tablets or iPads are also supported.

This makes it easy to run your tattoo shop no matter where you are. You don’t have to install any apps, so even on older devices, you can still use the appointment scheduler from Vev.

Why Vev is great on mobile devices:

  • Vev adapts to every screen. Big or small, it’ll work and no app is needed. From a computer to a tablet, and your phone. All you need is an internet connection.
  • Confirmations are sent out automatically. Vev does all the heavy lifting. Bookings, cancellations, reminders, and changes are all sent out automatically.
  • Client database at your fingertips. With each booking, your client database in Vev grows further. A great way to see which clients keep making appointments, what services they booked before, or as a discreet reminder for yourself to see if you’ve worked with them before.

Save yourself the calls, texts and emails

What is the best way to grow my tattoo shop business?

These days people want answers fast. That’s why a reservation system for your tattoo shop is the centerpiece in growing your business.

Imagine someone seeing an ad you put out at 9 PM. Your shop is closed, you are out doing something else, but your client is now ready to book an appointment. They in that case have to either send an email, call you the next day, or maybe shoot you a DM. Chances are you lose their business.

A booking link solves that problem. People click on it, see instantly when you are available and can go ahead and book a slot with you. They’ll receive a professional confirmation of their booking and it shows up on their calendar as well.

Vev provides you with a free reservation system so that you can try it out without losing a single dollar.

From there on, it’s time to distribute your booking link everywhere to grow your business:

  • Use it as the link-in-bio on all your social media profiles
  • Download your QR code from your Settings and stick it on your front door, and use it on business cards and other promotional material
  • Reach out to your regular clients in your Vev CRM so that they know about this digital booking option as well
  • Consider running ads that lead straight to this booking page. It’s important to show off your work in the ad itself so that all they have to do is book the next available slot as soon as they click on your ad.
