Think ink! 17 of the best tattoo shops in NJ
If you looking to get a tattoo, what better place than New Jersey? As more and more people are thinking ink, New Jersey has some of the best tattoo shops anywhere.
Tattoo artist Thomi Hawk Hickey, formerly of K&B Tattooing in Hightstown, tells us what you should look for when getting a tattoo:
"People should look for a clean shop that’s been in business for some time; not a fly-by-night Johnny come lately. Look at the artist's work, make sure you like the style this artist does, as well as do you and your artist see eye-to-eye. You could end up spending a lot of time together."
"Best to have someone you get along with! I must say the people of New Jersey are lucky as tattoo artists go. The state has so many great artists and shops! I was pleased to be a tattoo artist for 30 years in New Jersey at K&B Tattooing of Hightstown. The shop is now under new ownership by world-class artist Sam Cedar, formally of Roosevelt, New Jersey, and she named the shop Cry Baby."
