Getting an image or word(s) inked onto your skin, permanently, is no time to be trying to save money. So don’t put up a fuss about pricing at Minneapolis Tattoo Shop, where even the littlest ink work will run the $80 minimum price; more complex or involved tats will cost you much more. Think instead about quality: The artists at this shop — all of them women, including the very coolly named owner, Nikki Time — focus on precision, whether that’s placing a phrase in just the right place to display or conceal it, or achieving the perfect flow of color in a bird’s wing or a flower petal. It’ll be there forever; it’s worth paying someone who’ll do it right. Walk-ins welcome.
