My name is Mike. I'm a collector of tattoos. I grew up in Southern California, and I usually get tattooed there when I visit. I'm moving to Germany for work soon, and will be searching for good shops around Europe to get tattooed in.

Calle at King Carlos in Stockholm is amazing. If I was to travel out of the States to get tattooed it would be Shige or Calle.

Welcome Mike, I have a few friends who have been living in Germany for work and from what they have conveyed it has allowed them many opportunities to travel all around Europe easily and fairly inexpensive. With a little planning you could build up a nice little collection..

One of the best things about Europe is how easy an inexpensive travel in Europe can be. You already know to go to Frith Street but you should also go to Deno at Circus Tattoo in Madrid because I'm too booked up with other stuff to travel there or to book anything with him when he guests in the US.

    • @Kurgana There is an interview with Beppe Strambini on this site, and a lot of international guest artists seem to pass through Ink Addiction.  I know Verona is a long ways away from Sicily, though!  Not sure what style you're into, either.  But it sounds like an awesome shop, and one that I'd like to visit.
    • Question about 'what makes a good tattoo'. Traditional tattoos are intentionally quite flat. However, I really like the effect of depth and dimension. However, it would seem that the detail required for this would not hold very well? It requires shadowing, I suppose and quite subtle gradations in shading. How do people feel about 3-D, for instance? I am thinking of an Enid Blyton themed far away tree and was considering a particular artist who does 'illustrative' tattoos - however - I'm looking at the portfolio and noticing that there is not much depth to the images. But does 'depth' really work on skin? I'v only seen online images so I was wondering IRL...
