5 qualities of a tattoo artist you can trust
1. Their portfolio. A quality artist has an online portfolio where you can see his or her work
2. Their pricing. A quality artist should have a starting price that covers their equipment, time, creativity, and sterilization. If someone is doing your tattoos for $5/$10, chances are they are not paying for quality equipment
3. Their experience. A quality artist has either experienced working in a studio, an apprentice, or owning a studio; therefore they understand all health guidelines you can trust.
