Following the advice of several long-time Baltimore residents, this is where I went o get inked. No matter who you are, you won't feel stupid setting foot in here to casually check things out. The staff is friendly but by no means aggressive. They are happy to show you their portfolios and discuss any aspect of tattooing with you but they are also very low pressure. They really want you to enjoy the tattooing experience and take your time making a big decision.
You can also learn alot about the history of tattooing here in the small museum part. Again, feel free to ask any questions.
If you've settled on an idea, the staff will work with you to refine your design and discuss pricing up front. The experience itself, despite my anxiety, was virtually painless. I am very happy with the way my tattoo turned out. WIthout reservation I recommend the Baltimore Tattoo Museum.
