The Tattooists’ List.

Deciding who to go to before getting inked is huge. It's a serious business — is the ink good? Is the artist's hand steady? Are they reliable? Will I get Hepatitis C?!  We asked around and compiled a short list of places recommended by people (and Facebook too, sorry). Judging from the feedback and responses they've gotten, these tattooists seem pretty reliable.

If you're looking for artists and starting prices, this will help you out.
