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:

Tattoos

I am looking to get my first tattoo now that summer has past and the beaches are becoming desolate. I am a bit apprehensive to letting any old psuedoartist work on my body. Where is the best tattoo shop in Taipei. I know there are many in Ximen and a few in Shilin, but where is the BEST? Thanks for the advice

I got tattoed there last year, and love it.
and I wouldn't go to this germs pool in Ximending...

Try Needle No. 8 in one of the lines behind California Fitness/Luxy. My wife and a good friend have both had tattoos done there.

Needle 8 seems to be awesome. Jay from the Wall totally did a crappy job on my back, but this was 9 years ago when he was just starting out, but then he touched it up real nicely in front of a lot of TV cameras at a tattoo conv. here two years ago.

Hi,
I'm visiting Taipei in a few weeks and want to get a tattoo done. Anyone have any suggestions on where i should go? I want it done with quality and I don't mind if its expensive. Most of the places I've found on google are in the southern parts and central parts of Taiwan. Any suggestions or link would be greatly appreciated!
