Professional tattooing has come a long way since 1973 when my Dad started this business. Over those many years he innovated many of the commonplace safety systems we use today. This list is designed to help you pick a safe, clean studio to get a tattoo in. Whether you get your tattoo here or some place else, I want you to get it as safely as possible.
Most importantly, if you see items on this list and don’t think they are a big deal I disagree. The Kentucky regulations for tattooing are in place for a reason, to keep you safe. If an artist or studio is breaking these rules, what others are they breaking that you can’t see?
It should go without saying that you should also look at an artists portfolio. Anyone can buy a tattoo kit off of Ebay and print a certificate that says they are a tattoo artist. I can print a certificate that says I am an astronaut from the planet Zebes but that doesn’t make it true. Tattoos are for life. Make sure you get the best one you can.
