Here's What I Learned About Tattoo and Piercing Shops Near Me

por Shaun MacFarland (2020-04-29)


I live in an area of the world where the tattoo and piercing shops near me are not only really hip, but they also have some insanely talented individuals doing some amazing work. Whether it's laying down some serious custom ink or doing some great piercings, the quality of the shops in and around the city is stout. Even though my own limited budget has kept me from really indulging in my love for body art, I still get a kick from just seeing what these shops have to offer and getting an idea of what my next piece may be, whenever that may come.



I've learned that there are certain characteristics to look for when trying to find the ideal tattoo and piercing shop. Granted, these are the ones that mean the most to me, but they should be somewhat high on your list as they are rather important features.

Here's what I've discovered to be "must-haves" for any tattoos and piercing shops near me:

Reputation ? Without question, I need to know that the shop has a great reputation for great work and customer interaction. They need to be known for having a sterile environment, but it also has to be welcoming and feel comfortable. I like to know that patrons return regularly because they know they'll get quality work every time.

Artists ? I like to see great artists at work keeping clean work areas. It's great when they talk shop with visitors and are open to discussing the gear/ink they use. I also like to see a variety of artists available as sometimes being able to drop-in for some quick work without a wait is nice.

Services ? Offering a number of quality services under one roof for good prices is good stuff in my book.



Quotes ? It can be a little daunting to know that there's no real pricing in a tattoo & piercing shop. I like shops that give you the option to request a quote before stepping into the shop so that you can at least have a rough idea of what you're looking to spend.

Content ? We're in a day and age when social media is big, and I'm a big consumer of it. I like shops that use these platforms to show me what they're doing, the work they're putting out, and even some of the behind-the-scenes, more relaxed side of things that go in the shop. I'm also a big fan of websites that use the blog option to educate and entertain me about all things body art.

But I'll be honest ? there are the occasional shops that aren't so great.

It happens, but it's important to note this because it's part of what I've learned about the tattoo and piercing shops near me. In general, not all shops are created equal. The nice thing about the tattoo and piercing world is that word travels, so folks know where the best places to go are. This is something you'll have to discover about the shops near you, and the only way to do so is by doing some research. Online reviews are big, but your best bet is actually visiting a shop. Get a feel for the place, talk to staff, and see if you get a good vibe.












Platinum Ink in Austin has two tattoo and piercing shops near me that take care of all of my body art and modification needs. Come see why they've been a central Texas institution for nearly two decades.
