Is it customary to tip your tattoo artist?

Generally, yes.

In the United States, tipping in any service industry is commonplace.  Tattoo artists don't generally factor the tip into the final price of your tattoo but they'd probably appreciate a 20-30% tip.  If you've booked multiple sessions for your piece, tipping for each session wouldn't be a bad idea as larger pieces can take months to complete.
