There is no denying that when a lot of people hear the word tattoo or see someone with a tattoo they may not have the nicest of thoughts. When most people think of Tattoo Studio tattoos negativity is almost always what they affiliate it with. Which if you are educated in tattoos and the tattoo community you will know this couldn’t be further from the truth. The majority of people who have tattoos are law abiding citizens, they have never been to jail, they don’t have a criminal background and they have good paying jobs. Unfortunately, the few bad apples that are out there that dawn tattoos have created this stigma. Back in the day royalty dawned tattoos and people of affluent backgrounds. But soon the lower class people caught onto the tattoo craze and the royalty soon stopped getting them. This is more than likely the reason why tattoos are associated with bad people.
However, there is a tattoo parlor or tattoo studio as they liked to be called in Las Vegas that is trying to get people to see that tattoo studios are not a bad thing and that they can be upscale. Club Tattoo is nestled in between an art gallery and an upscale cookware store. One of the owner’s had this comment to make about them trying so hard to remove the negative stigma from tattoo parlors or studios if you will.
Our goal has been, from the very beginning, to remove the stigma of what people had thought of tattoos and tattoo artists, that they’re kind of dirty, tough guys [working on] convicts, bikers [and] military guys overseas,” Bennington says. “Our goal has always been to elevate the image of the tattoo industry as a whole.”
Club Tattoo is striving to change public perceptions by putting the tattoo artists in its front.”
