Young 'uns are getting inked left, right and centre these days and I'm all for it.
However it can be an absolute nightmare when you get a tattoo that turns out to be badly done, poorly conceived, or, perhaps worst of all, a carbon copy of a design that half the city already has.
If you're looking for someplace to get your next tattoo where you'll be guaranteed a safe and skilled artist, then look no further.
We've found some amazing works of art from Dublin-based studios that will help inspire you for your next (or very first) tattoo. These folk know what they're doing and will make you up an original design.
