Would you ever get a tattoo from a tattoo artist who had no tattoos? Even if the tatoo artist was renowned for his/her work.
Friend of mine is an extremely talented tattoo artist who doesn't have a single tattoo on her body (one of those really rare people who is extremely gifted at creating them, but just has no interest in using her body to display them). She desperately wants to open her own shop but is hesitant cause some people take one look at her un-tatted body and brush her off, despite her amazing work and high praise from other highly reputable people in the business. Since I'm also not a tattoo guy, I can't offer her any input but I thought it was an interesting dilemma. Thoughts?
