The artistic talent you can find in the coves of UK tattoo parlours is ink-redible. Ranging from colourful Disney tattoos to lifelike portraits and beyond, the body art being created in Britain is making its mark on the high street.
With so much talent spread out across the country, wouldn't it be great to know where the best place to get inked is?
Comparing the number of tattoo shops with the square mileage of some of the UK's largest towns and cities, we’ve discovered the tattoo capital of Britain.
We then used Yelp to search for tattoo studios in each city, ensuring that the distance was set to ‘within 5 miles’, and the category ‘tattoo’ was selected. For the London boroughs, the distance was not applied, but all tattoo studios sitting within the borough boundaries were counted.
These numbers were then compared to the populations and square mileage to discover the tattoo capital of Britain.
