you could try google....

find the shops...

go to the shops...

look at the books...

ask people in your area who you see have good tattoos about where they got them...

ask those people for a recommendation to a good shop...




but of course, that would mean that you'll have to be versed in what makes a good tattoo, a good tattoo.......

now, i'm not saying that you don't already know, but... well...

there's lots of dumbasses roaming around who think they know, but have no idea...

it's gonna be on ya for a long long long long long long long time, so it's well worth the research and foot work to find your best artist.... it's also well worth the money you'll pay....

if ya get a tattoo for $20 and a six pack, you'll get a tattoo worth $20 and a pix pack... got me?

okey dokey...

good luck....




btw.... i don't live in PA, so i dunno about any shops there....

I live in New Jersey and I hear a lot of good things about Na Ka Oi Tiki and also Olde City Tattoo. I don't know where those places are in reference to where you are. They're probably somewhere near south street. I haven't had anything personally done by anyone from these stores but if i was looking to get something done I would definitely check Na Ka Oi Tiki out.

always remember

Good tattoos are never cheap and cheap tattoos are never good....

with that in mind....

ask around...find a shop on google...or even on here...use the search for studio(at least that is what I think it is called) and then go in to see their portfolio, if they have a minimum, do they an art fee....those kind of things...

if you already kinda know what you want you could bring in a raw sketch and get a price range..

I don't know where Berks County is? I live in Allegheny, and I'd highly recommend True Image Tattoo in New Kensington...But I don't know how fat that is from you?
