Pinterest has helped many clients find tattoo ideas, including having the reputation for being the hub of cute and dainty little inkings. At the same time, tattoo artists have either felt strongly against Pinterest tattoos, or that it is a reliable starting point for tattoo ideas. However, bringing an exact design for an artist to copy is generally frowned upon with reputable artists. Our advice: find an artist you would let put any tattoo of theirs on your body, but come to them prepared with Pinterest-inspired tattoo ideas… not with a Pinterest tattoo.
