TatRing is a place to get body art inspiration and advice from experts and enthusiasts. If you have firsthand tattoo or piercing experience, TatRing wants to hear about it—we’re always looking for new writers to share their stories on our site.
We’re a proud community of everyday expert writers—please review our editorial policy before starting to write! Additionally, before submitting an article to TatRing, please read all of the following suggestions for success.
