Ok so you're ready to take the plunge and get a tattoo. So, the big question is "Where can I go to get the best design?" Well, there are lots of places to get a great tattoo. We have put together a comprehensive directory of Tattoo shops, Tattoo Artists, Body Piercing shops and more. Search our nationwide directory to find the best Tattoo shop in your area.

A great tattoo shop will have a tattoo book of their work available. In addition to looking through their selection of tattoos in their portfolio, each tattoo shop should have their state certification displayed prominently.

Also, look for qualities like cleanliness and their policy on new needles. Many shops will post their artist's hepatitis immunization records. Before you decide on a shop, hang out for awhile and watch them work. Be sure that all ink, needles, and supplies are stored separately and that they are always new.

So what's up with all the gals  that bare all for tattoo appointments when the location is unwarranted?

Is it racy? Are they trying to steal your boyfriend? If you date a tattoo artist, should you be scared?
