Seems like the Tatu crew has a lot of friends, but the work's kinda meh. Known a lot of people who's had work at Big Daddy's and their work looks nice. I'd stay with the experience here. It is your body after all

I reccomend Adrain at Big Daddys...he done all mine and at amazing prices. Ive had some of them for quite some time and they havent even began to fade. He is also very lighthanded and will work around your schedule =-)

I did a Lil research and found out tatu is full of shit!! They say their award winning? But only trophies they have won is from a convention they threw on? Their work in my opinion , is horrible!! Go to Big Daddys tattoo.

I'm def going to Big Daddys after reading all this but I have another question now lol. How much do you think it would cost there to get a tattoo that goes completely across the forearm both ways? It will be one word and only in black. I just want to get an idea of what to expect to pay for it :).

Personally I wouldn't berate a particular shop because of shitty work from one person. Whether it is Big Daddys, Tatu, Modern Age, or what ever, check out the portfolio of the artists. With that being said, the shop is responsible for the cleanliness of the shop and making sure that their artists are conforming the health standards set by the state and city. Make sure you check to see that your artist has a license, if they are keeping an autoclave log (required by the state), and that the booths are clean. It is required by kentucky state standards that all artists mop between tattoos too...Here's the thing, ask questions. If they give you an attitude for asking, they are probably hiding something. Do your research for YOURSELF and not from someone who may have had a bad experience somewhere. CHECK PORTFOLIOS!!!! Simple as that. If the artist has a shitty portfolio...dont get tattooed by them. It is your choice.

You shouldn't use A&D ointment more than 2 days, You can clog pores with it. The infection was probably due to your pores being clogged with bacteria and A&D. To clean a tattoo you need to wash it with antibacterial soap THOROUGHLY. Modern Age has a great page on how you should have taken care of your tattoo. http://www.modernagetattoo.com/faq.php

I live in New Jersy and visited some family in KY. And I stopped into Bog Daddy's tattoo in Hardin county. I guy named Tray did mine and I've gotten work from all over the world . Tray is one sick ass artist he free handed like a half sleeve in me , Unbelievable!!! Lines so clean, color still super bright after four years!!! My next Trip to Ky I'll diff hit him up again! Thanks Tray , everyone of the artist in Jersy said your work is on point son !! Much Respect!

Chris at Modern Age is the shit!!!! He used to work for Big Daddy's. Back then Big Daddy's was good. Now they ARE all snobs! My husband and I went in there to get tats and they never cam e out of the back to wait on us. Two half naked teenage girls came in and they were falling out of the back to come help them! That was the last time i set foot in Big Daddy's. Chris is AWESOME. He is so good he has about a one month waiting list to get in to see him. Your best bet is Modern Age with Chris.

BIG DADDY'S is definitely the best way to go, just look at their portfolios and you will see an outstanding difference compared to any 'artist'(i say artist because they like to call themselves that) at Tatu or pretty much any other shop around for that matter.

<quoted text>i think the min at big daddys is 40, i got a small neck tattoo there and it was $40. they do good work i just think they r snobs, they think they r better than every tattoo shop around. they pretty much made fun of my tattoo while i was getting it done, they think they r just too good for some ppls business, while i will say they do good work i dont think they should have that attitude about anyone the 'little people' are who keeps them in business u know? i havent heard ANYTHING about tatu in the mall either. my reccomendation is baldys and ask for robbie i have 8 tattoos one from big daddys and the rest from robbie at baldys and i have never been less than impressed with his work and prices
yea I know people that have gotten hepitites from both baldys and Tatu. You better go to big daddy's or modern age. The other two are a joke

Really cares? I've heard of countless infections from Tatu, tons of mispelled and blown out/ crocked lines from Big Daddys (However Tray has improved a lot the past few years), rumors that Baldy was on drugs, and have a tattoo myself from Modern Ink that the owner did. that he buried the needle in and somehow it managed to fall out within 10 day..not to mention while he was tattooing me he had a gun sitting on the counter next to me.
With all that being said, the only Three people in this area I might be able to trust would have to be, Tray, Adrianne (if you check his spelling and placement) and Chris Mcmillen if he's actually into the art he's putting on your body.
Chances are none of you will take any of this into consideration, so good luck.
