Tattoo place in Galway

What's the best place in Galway city to get a tattoo. It's just a wrist tattoo but I still want the best!

And what would the average price be? It's only about 1.5 inch by .75 inch

G's Tattoo are good, down shop street.
Got both of mine done in there and really happy with both.
No idea about price though.

Is there more than one person who tattoos in there? If so which did you go to? I'm thinking of getting a tattoo and I'm in Galway too so I'm trying to decide where to go. G's and Custom Tattoo have both been recommended to me, but I don't know which to go with.

OP, I would definitely cancel that Irish Ink appointment if I were you, a few people I know have been tattooed in there and most of them look quite bad. They have wobbly lines and patches and are just generally a bit crap.

I went to Jr.
He did my main tattoo, meant a lot, have been planing it since 15 and couldn't have been happier with it.
I'm sure there are a few other artists in there so just ask for portfolios.
My mate got a tattoo in Custom and the colouring was amazing. Tough choice but who ever you go for it will be quality.

There's a new place called AWOL thats opening soon... just quickly checked out their facebook profile and it looks pretty good (but then I'm a sucker for tiger tattoos and there's quite a few good ones on there.)

In my opinion you shouldn't really be focusing on the place rather than the artists- have a look around at each artistc portfolios before deciding if they are the right artist for you.

As above, I'd say Victors or Custom.
I have a tattoo from gs, not well done for a simple job, personally I'd steer clear.
Have 2 tattoos by Shane who will be in AWOL, simple enough tattoos, but done well.
And after getting my half sleeve done by Sean in custom, I'll probably never go anywhere else.
Victors portfolio and studio is excellent too.

Hey guys... Am I right in thinking that Custom is the same as Inkfingers? And that it's located near Victors?

Liz please do not type all in capitals. If you'd read the rest of Ciara's posts she did say she was cancelling:
