How Do You Know Where to Go?

If you're looking to get some work done, do a little research first. Call around and ask questions. Go online and look at artists' portfolios, and check out their work before you get something that is so permanent. Also, talk to other people with tattoos, that's a great way to find the right fit for you.

10 Rockers With Amazing Tattoos

"Fake Figures bassist Bob Bradley has a bunch of cool tattoos and shit. I do not, but I have a lot of unwanted body hair and piss. Bob and I have been homies for almost two decades, and I am honored to manage his shit-piss band Fake Figures (featuring members of Atreyu, Scars of Tomorrow, and Hotwire). And, I gots to say, that man knows a lot about ink and shit. Here are mine and Bob's 10 favorite rockers with amazing tattoos." —Scott Waldman
