What is Tattoo Monster

Great information about tattoos is hard to find online. This site is my modest solution to that problem.

Like a lot of first-timers, I had no idea what to expect. And other than a few words of advice from friends, I couldn't find many reliable sources to help me understand more about the process.

Thankfully, I had an incredible artist who guided me every step of the way and who is now helping me build out a full patchwork sleeve. Here's my very first tattoo below.

About the Authors

Let me go ahead and introduce myself. My name is David Ramos. I'm not a tattoo artist or an expert. Instead, I'm a writer who loves tattoos.

To make this site as valuable as possible, I will be relying on a network of experts, in-depth research, as well as my own personal experience of getting more tattoos.  

You'll also see the occasional post from other incredibly skilled writers, tattoo shop owners, and enthusiasts.
