Tattoo Parlor Business Plan
Transcript of Tattoo Parlor Business Plan
Lilith Symphony, will be located in Chicago, IL within a centrally-located major route strip mall. Our team will run the business idea. For start, we have an experienced tattoo artist and person who has retail administrative experience. A second tattoo artist will be hired to expand the options for customers and to make better use of the company's resources. The business will provide colour tattoos from both original designs by the artists and basic public domain designs. Original designs, which are considered the best by the artists and the customers, will be printed onto t-shirts, posters, and other resale items and sold through the shop as well with Lilith Symphony branding and signatures by the artists. Customers will include both those new to tattoos and tattoo collectors, all predominantly between the ages of 18 and 40.
Tattoo Parlor Business Plan
Products and Services
Lilith Symphony will provide the following services to customers:
• Introductory/shop-minimum tattoos
• Basic tattoos (~1 hour session)
• Full sessions (2-6 hour sessions)
• Body piercing
The financial plan for Lilith Symphony is to raise 27,000 $ from a combination of personal savings, a long-term loan, and short-term borrowing to launch the business. The business will achieve cash flow and profit break-even in the seventh month of operation and net profit will be achieved in the first year, allowing for dividends to be paid to the owners beyond their salaries starting in year two.
Strategy and Implementation Summary
• Offering competitively-priced introductory tattoos to encourage "tattoo newbies"
• Retaining high-quality artists to retain tattoo collectors
• Offering a wide range of custom designs in different styles to broaden appeal
• Additional services as short-time tattoo and piercing
• Selling additional products with designs by the tattoo artists to build an additional revenue stream
• Print 1,000 flyers advertising
• Create a basic website with all information
• The principals and additional artist handing out business cards and wearing Lilith Symphony shirts to promote the opening
• Running ads in the local papers about the grand opening
• The artists calling their rolodexes of previous clients
• Continuing to hand out business cards
• Printing flyers periodically promoting discounts and new products and posting them in the area
• Maintaining the website with new products and art
Lilith Symphony will create a competitive edge through the cultivation and retention of its most valuable assets - its artists. Both of artists will be well rewarded for their work through open-ended shares in revenues generated through their designed products and commissions on tattoos. By not having to worry about overhead, rent, establishing a brand, purchasing basic supplies, or other business concerns, this will be a perfect situation for a tattoo artist who wants to focus on his or her art, establish job security and establish a client base with limited risk.
