5 Smash-Hit Parlors to Get a Tattoo in Myrtle Beach

Here’s something to include in your next Myrtle Beach getaway itinerary: Getting a tattoo.

You don’t even have to wait until Bike Week on the Grand Strand to get one. Did you know that since 2012, women have gotten more tattoos than men? Or, that in Latin, tattoo means stigma?

Regardless, more people are getting inked up in Myrtle Beach, and we’ve got a list of places you’ll want to check out.

Questions to Ask Before You Get a Tattoo

They’re super cool. But you want to make sure you’re all in before you go all in. Here are questions to ask before you visit the parlor.

  1. Why this design? It doesn’t have to be a profound story, but it should have a good reason behind it. Check yourself: Are you getting this for you, or to prove a point to someone?

  2. Check the price. Color, detail, location, and size all factor into the cost. Be clear on how your artist will charge you for the work.

  3. Assess the pain. Getting a tattoo hurts, y’all. If you’ve got a problem with needles, talk to your artist beforehand — you might want to stick with henna.
