Congratulations! You have finally decided it was time to get a tattoo. You have given a lot of thought to the process and decided you wanted everyone to know your love for something special and ink your body. It may be a person, movie, or message, but you want to share it with the world and there is no better way than with a tattoo. However, the biggest piece of the puzzle is finding that one special tattoo artist in London that is going to make your dream a reality. With that in mind, we put together this guide to help you find the artist you need to bring your image to life.
One of the first things you will want to do is to find an artist who is close to your area and that has a good reputation. The easiest way to find out this type of information is to do a quick search on Google. The vast majority of tattoo artists in the area are going to have some type of rating as well as reviews. You will want to find an artist who has a four-star rating or above and a large number of positive reviews. Be sure to read what people had to say about the shop and their overall experience.
When you have a few shops listed it is time to actually visit each one and talk to the artists. Take the time to look at their work on the walls and in the books. You will also want to take note of the general cleanliness of the shop as well. Be sure to ask yourself if you are comfortable with the people and the shop, remember that getting a tattoo is a rather personal experience and you want to be comfortable.
