    I want to get 2 tattoo's done when I have the money. What should I look for/ask about when going to get one done? Both will be on the back on my shoulders I'm thinking. Or I may get one done on my chest... I haven't really decided on that yet. Thanks for helping me.

    nice people...portfolios..


    if they don't have portfolios and are just like "well if you don't find something on the wall that you don't like we could maybe draw something up for you" just walk away. The places I go to have no flash whatsoever, and they look like art galleries. Doesn't really matter but it helps...just look at the portfolios and find someone that does consistent great work with a style you like.

    I'm back in State College now. The one I want to get before I move onto grad school is [​IMG] Just the head, not the silver around it.

    if that is all you are getting you probably don't have to venture far, just look for someone who is a solid tattoo artist in their portfolio...good lines, solid work.

    I figure it souldn't be to hard to find someone up here to do it well. Hell this is penn state Also, what do places normally charge....is there anything health wise I should look out for?

    The current plan is for [​IMG] and 12-17-05 to be put under it. While I want to have it done on the back of my shoulder I wouldn't be able to see it. But on the other hand I don't like the idea of getting it done on my chest either.

    My number 1 thing is referrals...ask around. Some guy at work recommended this one shop near our job. I did some research and, supposely, they are best within a 15 mile radius of my house.

    I've been asking but no one I know has gotten any tattoos or knows anyone that has. There are 3 or 4 shops in town so I'm trying to pick the best one

    I am looking for quality and health conditions. I don't want something that is going to look like ass. I realize it's not that intricate but the lion head means a lot to me so I don't want someone to fuck it up. Seeing as this is state college I'm assuming almost any place can do it.
