Nashville, TN Tattoo Shops Question


Recommended Posts

Next week I am off to Nashville for four days of work and don't know how much down time I will get unfortunately as it is my first time there but wanted to see if there are any tattoo shops people would encourage me to stop by?

Thanks in advance.......

Well if you are in downtown Nashville, these shops are the big names:

Black 13 Tattoo Parlor

Icon Tattoo and Body Piercing

Kustom Thrills Tattoo

I don't know where you'll end up staying on your trip to Nashville, but these are just the most well known shops I can think of in downtown Nashville.

I live 30 miles south of Nashville in Smyrna and have been getting tattooed for the last year by Paul at Tried & True Tattoo.

He's one of those "under the radar" guys.

For whatever reason, he doesn't self promote (no website, only facebook and rarely at that) I think he just loves owning a street shop.

He's doing a Sailor Jerry type skull and snake on my calf on sept 3. I can't wait.

haha, yes @Joe Shit always comes through.

@IAS if I get enough free time I'll take the drive though saw the work timeline and don't know if I am going to get in more than eating and sleeping during my not working time. Unfortunately this trip is being squeezed in between two other pre set engagements so I don't get to do the at least a day before and/or after play time I try to always do.

    • Hi all, I am new in this industry and i would like to know if there is any platform only for professionals to find guest spots, long term work etc... even for tattoo owners studios to publish job offers for artists. I would like to fins a platform like Linkedin but only for tattoos professionals. HOnestly i do not like to use instagram or facebook for professional stuff and for example tattoodo is more to find clients not offers to work in studios or offers jobs if i am a owner.   Said that i really appreciate you support on it.   Thanks in advance and apologies if i make a mistake on where to posrt my concern   Best, John
    • I was prepared for my knee ditch to be a tough spot to heal. I was not prepared for it to get INFECTED! Ugh. Fortunately, I sought medical care as soon as something seemed amiss: abnormal redness around the tattoo about a week out from getting it done, and the worst tattoo itchiness I’ve ever experienced (I actually thought I’d gotten a mosquito bite ON the fresh tattoo at first.) I’ve been on antibiotics for a few days and it hasn’t drastically improved, but the itchiness has subsided and at least it doesn’t appear to be getting worse. And the tattoo still seems to be healing normally. Not sure where I went awry with this healing as I babied this tattoo more than any of my others. I only washed twice a day instead of three, but I also wasn’t leaving the house at all and had it exposed to air almost constantly. *shrug* I emailed my artist and the shop just to give them a heads up, which I felt kind of weird about but they should know, right? I don’t actually think I picked this up at the shop, but couldn’t hurt for them to give everything a nice once over with disinfectant, yeah? Anyway, this first picture is some mild redness, the second is the worsening redness one day later that prompted me to go to urgent care. The second is a couple days later. Looks about the same currently…really hoping to see more significant improvement soon.
