Yes I'm tried of hearing about Miami Ink. Best Artist I've been to Lional in Oxford, England. He did 6 of my tattoos, great artist took his time made sure they were done right. The color is still good more than 20 years later.
It is actually called Love Hate Tattoos. It is named after the owners bar Love Hate. There is shop there in that location called Miami Ink but they only sale Miami Ink apparel.
I would not waste my time or money in that overrated hoopla of a joint. There is a place just north of there in Hollywood, FL called Twisted Heart Custom Tattoo. Joe, the owner, is by far better that any of those fad frenzied sale-outs on that show. And the would be 1/3 the price.
How much does a tattoo artist on Miami Ink or LA Ink make per tattoo?
I've heard Kat Von D charged $500 an hour. You're looking at $2000-$3000 for one of her tattoos. As for Ami and that bunch, you're pretty much paying top dollar for average work. If you look around your city, I'm sure you'll find artists who produce the same quality work for the fraction of the cost. To give you an idea, most reputable shops charge $125/hour for large scale custom pieces.
How Do I Get an Appointment for a Tattoo at Miami Ink? I live in Australia but will be in Miami in June?
You have to apply, and they let you know if you're accepted. And if you're from outside Florida, you have to send a video.
You wouldn't be able to just walk in and get a tattoo.
whats the tattoo shop on miami ink called i was trying to look it up in yellow pages but?
You have to go to TLC.com to apply to be on the show. They only do tattoos on people who have applied, and have been picked by TLC to be on the show. Also, if you are picked, you have to pay your own way there, the tattoo and accomodations. But to be tattooed by those guys, it's worth every penny!
Do you think that Miami Ink guys would go out of their country to do tatoo?
honestly i doubt it. They are way to busy, and celebrities now. they book for the show like 6 months in advance. I would agree with other people. send them an email or something.. and save money to fly there.
Can anyone help me find info on a Miami Ink Tattoo?
Gosh i really do hate it when up-themself ars eholes are so rude on here, theres just no need for it - if they dont know the answer to something why do they bother to answer? Oh yeah its because theyre sad people with nothing better to do who just like to say stupid unhelpful things to be nasty and waste everyones time! I really hate yahoo sometimes!
Im afraid i dont have any info on it, but the best advice i can offer you is to either email (or better yet write as they probs get tones of emails) the miami ink website/shop HQ and ask, or try their myspace page and email there too. Good luck!

The site above is about that tattoo.. Darren is the one that did that one tattoo...
Do you have to go through TLC to get a tattoo at Miami Ink? or can you just take a trip down and make appt?
do you want to be on the show? or just get tattooed? you would have to send in an audition tape to get on the show. but you'll still need to call and make an appointment for the artist that you want to get tattooed by. and like everybody said. chris garver and kat only tattoo in miami when they are filming. they actually live in los angeles. good luck with your tattoo!
I believe that is true--no more Miami Ink--I thought I saw some previews of the guys buying and setting up a bar/club and that the show is moving to that venue. (could be mistaken)
I tried finding out more for you on the TLC website, but there is no info, sorry :(
Does anyone know how long it took the guy in Miami Ink to do the Phoenix tattoo??
probably 30-45 seconds. thats how long they show the people on the show getting their tattoos. if it was such a "reality" show then they should show the people cringing and squirming for 2-3 hours the real amount that it takes to get a tattoo.
about how much would it cost to get a tattoo done by Miami Ink that is about 3inches high and 3inches across?
Wow, I wish you luck............all these people that love that show, don't even think about all the tats that they messed up and won't put on the show.................of course they will show the good stuff...............but, if they showed the bad work that they put out, they could make a mini series.
Now, for your question..................you have to pay an up front price to even be thought to be put on the show...........then it depends on the tattoo........if it's just a little thing, they won't even bother..............takes up to much show time.
Then, because they are on tv...........they will charge you some outrageous price and you are supposed to be happy.
No, I'm not jealous, I'm just not that vein........and I care about my loyal customers.
So, I was there last year, and Miami Ink was closed down at the time. However, a few doors down, Chris and Darren had opened up a new shop. I can't remember the name. They took no appointments. It was first come first served. And those guys were working.
Just be prepared. I went in with a reference of what I wanted done(a small bracelet around my wrist), was told about a 1 hour wait and quoted a price of $550-$850 depending on how long it would take to place the stencil.
An excellent system, everyone has a chance of getting in, but way over inflated prices.
If you're interested, get there early, they open at noon.

When did the first season of Miami Ink start and how many season of Miami Ink is there?
Miami Ink started in July /07 and ran for 4 seasons. Following the fourth season, James and Núñez declined an offer to film any more episodes of the show, because they "weren't happy with the way [they] were treated".
Kat left Miami Ink in May /07 and LA Ink premiered on August 7, 2007.
How can I make an appointment at Miami Ink to get my tattoo touched up?
I live in south florida and to even GET a tattoo done by one of those guys, you usually have to do an audition for the show. They usually have the auditions at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino (though not always) so check the Miami Ink website (you can apply online) and check the casino's website for upcoming events. I'm not sure if this hotline still works but it's the one I called last year when I wanted to audition: (786) 276-5222
I dont know if u know all ready know where Miami ink is at in south beach but I'll tell you it's a sidewalk shop on Washington Avenue and 13th street in South Beach.
