      THIS IS A SITE FOR ARTISTS, NOT CLIENTS (Please read before posting)   04/18/2018

      I'm seeing a lot more questions from people who are looking to get tattoos, asking about ideas, healing instructions, etc. These are questions you should ask YOUR  LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST, not random people on the internet. This site is specifically for tattoo artists and those looking to get into the trade by way of an apprenticeship. Don't be shy! Google local artists and drop by a shop or two, check out their portfolio of work and talk about your ideas with a professional who can help you achieve the best tattoo experience. 

       Thanks for reading!

  1. Location Advice

    Thanks Mark, I should probably have guessed that advice! What do you mean by 'dated' in terms of tattoos? Is it that it was just very popular a while ago or just not the trend right now? The tattoo does have personal meaning to me - it's from the film I saw with my wife when we first got together, the reading it is based on was at our wedding etc etc. But I'm just curious what the trend would be in tattoos right now... Thanks!
  2. I'm looking to get my first tattoo and very excited to get it but I'm not sure of location. I know I want something like the picture below (just a B&W outline) and ideally I'd have it on my forearm BUT because of my job I think this isn't feasible - I'm a teacher and often roll my sleeves up! I was thinking upper arm somewhere but would inner or outer bicep be better? Or should I be more daring and think about somewhere else? Any advice for a first timer is very appreciated!!!
