    Default Tattooist recommendations please! Cardiff / Bridgend / Swansea area

    A friend of mine is looking to get some binary text tattooed on his chest - can anyone recommend the best place to go in the Cardiff / Bridgend / Swansea area?

    Also on a side note I am thinking about getting a simple white tattoo - has anyone any experience with these and do they know anywhere that does them in the same area. I am aware that many places won't do them etc.. I am just researching them at this stage.

    in the cardiff area

    out of all the results that come up on google he's probably the only one that looks in anyway decent ie as far as i can see there aren't any wobbly lines, shoddy colouring, bad shading general awfulness
    in the swansea area
    http://www.skin-n-ink.biz/galleries.htm
    these guys look fairly decent again same as above really although I did notice that the bigger more detailed pieces seemed to be better executed than the smaller less detailed pieces (that may just be me though)
    in the bridgend area
    http://www.bridgendtattoostudio.co.uk/
    these guys look pretty good


    I've not personally been to any of the above places but they all seem to be pretty good at what they do and I'm sure someone who actually lives in those areas will be along soon to recommend somewhere/someone

    Just look for artists portfolios where they have done good text really. I know a girl who lives in that area and has had text done, I'll ask her now and report back.

    pretty much what Hazel said I'd also suggest paying close attention to any line work done by the artist cause wobbly lines in a text script tattoo just look a bit shit IMO
