    For all of you have tattoos (and have gotten them done here), where/who do you recommend? I think I'll be getting my first on later this year (or next, who knows)

    Well, You'll get lots of answers, so whomever you choose, make sure you feel comfortable with them and the shop. OK, now that the PSA is over, I have 4 and the best one I got so far was from John Pricer at Sach's. He is going to finish the rest of my shoulder/arm when I get the cash and time.

    I got my newest one from Jason Ward over at Star Tattoo. I'll post a pic tomorrow. I liked the work so much I scheduled another three hours of work to be done next month. As long as the shop is clean, you feel comfortable with them, and they have experience you'll be just fine. Cleanliness is the most important!!

    I have 4 but I got them in places other then here: 2 in GA, 1 in FL and 1 - Scotland. As for pics, I would love to post them but only the state of GA has pics of 3 of my tats. I want to get more though, I have an idea for another one that I am working on I just need my computer to work so I can set it up

    I got mine at Custom Tattoo Parlor on central. They were all very nice and very helpful. They are more if you want something that you have in your head and what custom designed, hince the name. Mark was my guy and he was the coolest, very straightfoward and was always there to anwser any question. I had no problems with my tattoo and it looks great! I hardly had an scabing at all. It was very well done. Very perfessional.

    Hope it helps.

    I am also looking for a guy named Jeremy or something like that to do one for me. I don't know which one he works at. If anyone knows let me know. The one I want is pretty creepy looking but I love it!

    That's what I don't get. I'm actually tan, but the flash made me all pale.

    I just spent $450 on tattoos last month!!

    My guy is super awesome!! He's expensive, but I think he's worth it! He's been doing it for 13 years and is very comfortable to be around.

    I'll PM you his info if you really want. Let me know.

    He works at Tinta Cantina Tattoo on Central.

    I don't have pics. But he did a cover up, very well. I get compliments on it all the time now. And he touched up two others that I had and did a new one. I am going to get more stuff done by him once I get the money.

    Gecko thinks he's too expensive, but it's art work.

    true... and artwork if you love it is always worth the money - you should see my house on that subject! and how is 450 too expensive if it makes you happy and lasts a lifetime?

    and of all things, a tattoo is not something you want to "go cheap" on...
