Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

also, if you do a search for taiwan in the site's search engine there are some testimonials by people who got work done in Taiwan.

There's a tattoo shop really close to the Liohue Night Market in Kaohsiung. The artist only has 1 hand, but his work is amazing. My wife and I got ours there about 5 years ago. I'm pretty sure he's still around. Bring someone who speaks Chiense, he doesn't speak English.

Reputable (i.e. SAFE) Tattoo and/ or Piercing in Taipei?

Postby TienMouBen » 15 Nov 2006, 11:20

Is it safe to assume they do piercings at these places as well? What does your average belly piercing cost?

EDITED: after DB moved me to this thread
THANKS!

Seeing this thread reminded me of something I want to ask. As it stands now I have a lot of tattoos, and I plan on investing a large sum of cash for a new one very soon to get my back covered with my life story.. I have found the artist I like, and to be honest his work is excellent. First class from my point of view, and he has quoted me a price of $200,000NT. Question for the ones who have experienced tattooing here in Taiwan. Is this price reasonable?? I know compared to back home in the states this is cheap for what I want and the skill of the artist, however, I would like to get advice from some of you who have experience getting inked here.

Also, could you guys suggest any "TRUE" artists that I may stop by and consult with before I commit to this one. Any location in Taiwan is OK as long as the artist is a real artist that does top quality work.

Tattoo/piercing shop in Taipei city?

Postby larrysnothere » 03 Mar 2007, 07:32

Hi,

does anyone know if there's any tattoo/piercing shop in Taipei city, except the ones I've found in Ximen? Not really want any "tattoo artist" just like one person here on the forum, just simple shops as I and some friend want to check their price.

Thanks
Larry

+1. Got one done by SheFu Tsai, and he's a real master. I'm planning to go back to him to get a full back piece (at some stage in a few years time, when I have money for that sort of thing and when I'm back in Taiwan). He's a great artist, and will work to accomodate whatever you have in mind.

He's also really good, got one from him too. A little more expensive than SheFu Tsai was, but the quality is the same (ie, excellent).

Regarding the question someone asked regarding healing, I found the best stuff is that Burt's Bees resQ (I think that's what it was called) ointment. I combined that with vitamin E oil on the last tatt I got (a big one, over my whole right shoulder), and it healed up perfectly, almost no scabbing, peeling etc, and no loss of tone or shading. Took about a week to heal completely.

a good tattoo artist

Postby Battery9 » 18 Oct 2007, 13:00

It's that time of the year again..hahah. Watching way too much Miami Ink and now I'm itching. I want to get 3 nautical stars on my upper arm. I know stars on arms are tricky...I have had a lot of work done in Ximen and I don't think the guys there can do it.

Have any of you had some really nice tatts done? With fine lines and detail?

thanks

You only have wee arms. How the hell are you going to get all this on one of them?
