More of us are deciding to go under the needle than ever before.
What once was a symbol of subculture is now well and truly part of the mainstream. It is now estimated that a fifth of Brits have tattoos, and among the under 30s, that figure rises to one in three.
Although some may choose to get a new tat on a whim, more often than not a lot of thought goes into getting a new piece of body art, from carefully selecting the design, to the best tattoo artists.
Thinking of getting a tat this year and need some inspiration? You don’t need to look far as Goan is home to a plethora of world-class tattoo artists.
Whether you’re a die-hard tattoo addict looking for a large scale piece or a newly-converted fan of the art form after something on the dainty side, these are the Goan tattoo artists and studios you should follow on Instagram before you get your next inking.
