Tattoos are becoming more and more popular. each day people who have never had a tattoo decide to get their first. And they wonder where they should go to get their first. it is an important decision considering you may have the tattoo on you for the rest of your life. also, health issues come into play. so, you want a tattoo you can be proud of and also one that won’t get infected.
How to find a tattoo shop or parlor:
1. The best way is to ask your friends where they got theirs. They can not only give you the address and name of the shop, but can give you details on the quality of artists and professionalism of the shop.
2. If you can’t find a good place from your friends, you can go online and ask others. One place to consider is yahoo answers. you can ask a specific question such as “what is a good tattoo shop in Las Vegas?” . you will likely get quite a few answers in a few days.
3. Online communities such as tattoohood.com. This is a free site to join much like myspace, but only for tattoo lovers. inside the have a forum area, gallery area where you can get ideas for tattoos and you also can interact with other members. so if you find a member in a certain city, you can just ask them where they get their tattoos.
4. Tattoo directories. there are a few good online directories to find tattoo shops and artists in the US. The one that I have found that is most complete is JustTattoo.com. They have thousands and thousands of parlors and also a rating system for each parlor.
So, just put in a little time and make a good decision. Finding a tattoo shop isn’t hard, but finding the best one takes a little more work.
