QUESTION: My husband and I are traveling to Jamaica in December. He typically gets a "local" tattoo. We are cautious when away from our local artist,

Have any suggestions??????

ANSWER: by Wellesley July 9, 2012

Hi Debra,

Thanks for your email and thanks for choosing Jamaica.

There are quite a few around, but I suspect that like many other places, many are unregistered and sub-par.

Sometime ago though, someone had asked me about tattoo shops in Jamaica, Ocho Rios to be exact, and I referred them to one. Subsequent to that, another suggestion was given. I'll suggest you start with those.

Here's the link:

I am also posting your question on our popular facebook fan page so I am inviting you to follow the responses from my fans over there as well.
