There are big tattoo brands/shops in Mumbai tattoo market, however the artist working under that brand/shop is the one who is gonna ink on you. So the point is that the artists in all the shops keep changing so you don’t know how is your new tattoo artist is gonna be.
I would recommend you to check the portfolio of the artist before you go to any tattoo shop because you are gonna have something on your body which is for life time and also you are paying good amount of money for it. So its better you to check profile and the portfolio of the artist who is gonna tattoo on you…..
There are couple of things you need to check with the artist :
- First of all how many years of experience he has in tattooing
- Approximately how many tattoos he has inked till date
- Check his illustrations and sketches he had made for his clients, If he has none that means he cannot design a custom tattoo rather he would use references from the internet or tattoo books.
- Check his portfolio and make sure he has done it and not downloaded from the internet to make his fake portfolio.
