I'm looking to get a tattoo Monday and was wondering which was the better place to get it done. I've been to Mainstream to get my Lip Piercing but I was wondering who did the better ink? Any suggestions or experiences?

You are putting a handicap on yourself.

Ain't it funny how young ladies who would be embarrassed to be seen in last year's fashions will paint themselves to be out of style for the rest of their lives.

If you don't have an answer to my question you don't have to say anything to me. I don't care about "the latest fashion" and the tattoo I'm getting is for a very good meaning. Putting a handicap on myself would be purposefully ramming my car into a tree going 50 miles an hour. The placement of my tattoo can be very easily hidden but still stand for the reason I'm getting it. My question was solely for someone who has been tattooed at one of these places and their opinion of the work. Thank you for your very opinionated but not asked for answer.

Oooh so.. Anon :).. you're one of the ones that sits on here just to be in everyone's business? You have NO say in this. And you're opinion is not needed if you do not have a tattoo from either one of these places. I don't care about your opinion of me and my getting a tattoo. It's my decision to have something permanently on my body to remind me of the loved ones I've lost. I along with all the people I've talked to think it is VERY sentimental and touching. I'd rather have something to remind me than to forget what it was like to have them here. And honestly if you're not a complete ass I hope someone cares enough to get a memorial tattoo for you one day.

You are asking if you want dumb or dumber to do your tattoo. Both those shops are owned by the same guy and the artist there suck. Go to saltillo.

Just a helpful hint. The shop is owned by Jason Wilson. He is a local artist that actually started tattooing the same year as Arron Dunn. Arron just works there. Jason worked very hard to create and start the perfect shop. Hiring Arron was the icing on the cake.
Go check it out, its worth the extra 5 mins past the mall.

Trends Change
If, say, you’re of a certain age to remember the ‘80s and early ‘90s, you’ll recall an era when bigger was better—big hair, big sleeves, big long nails held daintily under chins in mall glamour shots. Imagine how you’d feel now if you’d made those things permanent fixtures of your personal style. Avoid trends when considering designs. This year’s Mexican sugar skull is next year’s Celtic cross.

Stretch Marks Distort
If you think you might want to be pregnant some day, consider avoiding tattoos on your belly region—or pretty much anywhere on your abdomen. Stretch marks could turn that dolphin into a malformed manatee. Not the look you were going for when you made that pre-baby commitment.

Placement Counts a Lot
This goes without saying—right?—but a neck or hand tattoo of a boyfriend’s name (or a pistol, or a marijuana leaf, or actually any tattoo on your neck or hands, really) isn’t going to be attractive to potential employers. Do your future job-seeking self a favor and place tattoos where they won’t impede your ability to work wherever you’re qualified.

Color Can Fade
Keep in mind that over time, colorful tattoos can fade. You can preserve your vivid ink by staying out of the sun, for instance—good advice in general. But know that that fresh, brilliant landscape you pick today stands to show your age over time as much as fine lines on your face.

Keloids Can Form
Tattoos can prompt the formation of keloids, or irregular, enlarged scars. If you know you’re predisposed to keloid scarring, you might want to avoid ink altogether.

There’s a Risk of Infection
Blood plus needles equals risk of infection. You’re fine if all the equipment is clean and sterile—so ixnay on that spontaneous vacation tattoo on some remote beach. Make sure you’re at a reputable place to guard against diseases like hepatitis and HIV.

Allergic Reactions Could Result
They’re not common, but they’re possible—and they’re no fun, since tattoo pigment can be very hard to remove. And you’re not even necessarily in the clear after your skin heals: Allergic reactions can happen even after years of living with your body art.

Tattoos Are Permanent
OK, you knew that. But consider the things you value now, versus what you might value later. If I’d gotten a tattoo at the time in my life when I was most inclined toward body art, it would probably be a full sleeve of Depeche Mode’s lead singer—not exactly in line with my life’s current priorities (with all due respect to the always-sexy Dave Gahan). Keep in mind that tattoo-removal options like lasers and re-inking may not yield a satisfactory outcome
