Lets face it, there's so many places to get inked, pricked, cut, branded or whatever you are into. Some are good and some are not good depending on the experience that one gets. I've had a fair share of experiences from getting tattooed to know what to look for and what not to look for in a shop. Cleanliness, polite attitude, willing to work with the clients and above all a passion to wanna work on the tattoo in general.
So this is the discussion for you to get involved with. Being a client and never stepping foot into a studio is very scary. What I wanna get rolling is the nature of shop discipline. Is it clean? Is it safe? Is it a place you would feel comfortable returning to? These are a few of the things you must ask yourself sometimes. Others are more common sense based but those are the main issues to go with.
So the question is this: Is the studio good? Name off the studio you locally attend and explain why you go back. Give the rumors you hear, the feedback of service, the experience in a nutshell. Curious minds need to know this.
