What is a tattoo?
According to Wikipedia, a tattoo “is a form of body modification, made by inserting indelible ink into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment.”
So you can put just any design on your body, depending on what you like or the mood that you are in. Just make sure that you choose the one that you think is timeless, because as you know, tattoos are pretty permanent, unless you undergo some medical procedure to remove them.
“I shall now mention the way they mark themselves indelibly, each of them is so marked by their humour or disposition”.
While I may not be courageous enough to get inked myself, I still celebrate the artistry and the effort that goes into every tattoo. But mind you, not all tattoo artists are the same. You might end up with a mutation of the original design that you presented. Some have their own techniques while others have their own touch.
Find one Bacolod tattoo artist who suits you and can possibly draw out the design that you like. So if you are looking for a good tattoo artist in Bacolod City, here are some of them, as recommended by Maurice Serfino. He is an avid patron of Bacolod tattoo artists.

Michael “Mike” Molinos, 31, from La Carlota City was drawn to skin art at a young age. He started tattooing when he was 19, he started dabbling on drawing tattoos using an improvised rotary machine. After only three years, he went pro with the help of Tata Coscoluella from Staindskin Tattoo of Iloilo City.
His influences are Paul Booth and Tommy Lee Wendtner. “I do colored designs but I still love to do black and gray tattoos.”

Third Tripolo started tattooing professionally about 4 years ago, with a particular style called “color horror realism”. He says, “I also love black and gray but I think that my (work) in color is much stronger than my blacks and grays.” He believes that there is no such thing as perfection in tattooing but in all his achievements, he tries to remain humble.

Talented Bacolod Tattoo Artists
I think that all of the Bacolod tattoo artists that I featured here are very talented. It’s now a matter of choosing who you are comfortable working with on a personal level. After all, getting inked is a rather “intimate” act.
It would do you well to get a referral first, especially if you have a complicated design in mind, and get to know the artist first before undergoing a drastic transformation. I know that some of the contact details are missing, but you can all easily find them on Facebook.
