I'm gonna be in Memphis over New Year's and I'm finally going to get my Goner tattoo. Does anybody have any recommendations for tattoo shops/artists in the area?

Underground Art (down the street from Goner) gave me a gift certificate once for a Haiku I wrote. I never used it and still have no tattoos. Probably will one of these days.
Them and I've heard good things about the Tattoo places on Summer; the one at the corner of Summer and National and the one next to the Kung-Fu place between Graham and Highland.

No Regrets.
It's the only place I go anymore.
I was there yesterday getting shading on my right forearm.
UA is good, too, but I love NR.
Call ahead to either place - odds are good that there's not many openings left (guy I use is booked through mid January).

I gotta put a shout out for Babak at Trilogy on Highland. He's done two masterful covers/reworks for me. Definitely call ahead.

I second Babak.

Yeah, Mark or Babak.

I heard UA has a $125 hourly/minimum which is way too much to pay esp. the Goner logo. That said, who isn't going to upcharge you as an out-of-towner coming to get a logo of a Memphis label in Memphis. I'd get your hometown person to do it. Actually, I wouldn't get it at all, I'd sooner get the Dwarves Skull and CrossBoners.

I got an AWESOME tattoo at mouses!
Posted: Dec 21, 2009 2:30 pm
On the other hand, I probably still wouldn't go back.
Posted: Dec 22, 2009 3:18 pm
Yeah, Mark or Babak.

Dave at Underground Art.. or Kevin at Rameses Shadow

I have seen Trilogy overcharge for little pieces before

oh shit this whole thing just occured to me. I have about five tatoos on my body and it would be really cool to get a goner one. I'm a newb in the community , having only recently been purchasing the labels music. I really love the music these guys are putting out. So would it be
cool to get one, or should I hang around a bit and become more involved, earn it I guess you could say.

Yeah, I saw one of them quote a ridiculous price on some flash while they were doing me. I didn't know the artist before I went in, but they cut me a good price because they liked the piece.
