Plenty of quality tattoo artists in Malta

You are spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing a salon to get your tattoo done. One tip: ask expatriates for opinions on social networks and indicate the kind of tattoo you want. Do not always favour the tattoo artists offering the most affordable prices, because a tattoo is for life. If the wrong ink or the wrong material is used, your tattoo will quickly change shape and colour! And this is obviously not what you want.
