Thinking of getting inked? Before running to the nearest tattoo shop, make sure you research the artist and his or her reputation. Finding the best tattoo shops in San Jose takes a little time and some asking around. Getting a tattoo is permanent, so we recommend doing your due diligence. Finding a good shop can be the difference between a satisfied customer and a dissatisfied customer.
At Pyramid Tattoos, we want our customers to feel like they’ve selected the best tattoo shops in San Jose. Here we provide some important tips to keep in mind when choosing a tattoo shop.
Make Sure the Tattoo Shop is Licensed
We hear more and more about ‘tattoo artists’ offering ‘cheap’ tattoo services, sometimes out of a basement shop. Finding the best tattoo shop in San Jose that’s licensed is crucial. Going the other route can lead to massive disappointment, not to mention the possibility of ending up with a horrible-looking tattoo, and even worse, infection or disease. It’s just not worth the risk! Make sure to ask if a tattoo shop has their license. It should be on display in the shop for customers to see. If ever in doubt, check with California Health to make sure the shop is licensed.
Ask for Referrals
When looking for a great hairdresser, people typically ask friends and family for recommendations. Why wouldn’t you do the same when looking for the best tattoo shops in San Jose? Ask around, find people that have had work done at the tattoo shop(s) you’re considering. Or ask the tattoo artists themselves to provide referrals. Good tattoo artists will be more than happy to provide referrals to potential new customers.
Commitment to Health and Safety
At Pyramid Tattoos, we take health and safety very seriously. We take pride in knowing that we are one of the best tattoo shops in San Jose with some of the top talent around.

Take your Time
Getting a tattoo is exciting, we know! But we also know that finding the best tattoo shops in San Jose is important.
