Baltimore, it's time to get inked. Tattooing is more than a trendy sub culture that just happens to have existed for centuries; it's a validated form of self-expression, a way to shout without saying any words at all. Whether you're still deciding on where to place your first beauty mark or are in the process of completing you second sleeve, this list will serve all of your needs. Remember, the last thing that anyone wants to worry about is the thought of taking a little something extra home with your new symbol – like an infection.
Other shops like Saints & Sinners, Charm City Tattoo, Read Street and Baltimore Tattoo Museum made a previous list we published on the site.
Check out the following list of adoring shops where your creativity can run wild (and sterile, too).

At first glance, you may mistake the storefront of the Charmed Life for a quaint and charming home on a major street in Northeast Baltimore. This is quite fitting, as the homey interior and warm staff are rather inviting to clientele. As an added bonus, once a month the venue hosts gallery openings with live music featuring the art of local tattoo artists.
