1. Re: First tattoo

I got my very first tattoo in Bali earlier this year and I hadn't even planned on it :) We were wandering around Legian and came across Radjah Skin Design, in Legian. It is very clean and sterile and the tattoos Jimmy Toge, is absolutely fantastic at what he does. I immediately felt comfortable. Hubby, who was looking at getting something added to an existing tattoo ended up having it done, beautiful job, so I decided there and then and got a butterfly on my ankle. I won't keep going on and on, if you are interested he has a website, take a look at it, you will not be disappointed. What would have cost at least $700-800, back home, for both hubby and mine, only cost around $450-$500 with Jimmy. If you want anymore info just let me know, I'm more than happy to help.

2 things, Ibud now works for Balinesia tattoo and being a person with a fair bit of work from various artists around the world, NEVER BARGAIN FOR TATTOOS!

Any decent artist knows what their work is worth and won't haggle about it.

Yep, I fully understand that.

I managed to have it $15 lower though and their work was as expected!

but nothing wrong with trying to bargain, right?

cause i believe you know how people give the price there for tourist..
