You shouldn't choose your tattoo shop all willy-nilly.  You might want your arms and legs covered in quality ink but you don't want to pay an arm and a leg to do so.

Whether you are one of those rare people with just one or two tattoos, or you have more ink than bare skin, help us find the best tattoo artists in Southwest Michigan.
