Jinx Proof Tattoo is one of the premier places in Washington for tattoos and body piercing. The clientele here is as varied as the size, shape and complexity of the tattoo patterns lining the walls. The tattoo artists here are just that - artists. In addition to etching their own creations, they are more than willing to touch up a tattoo that you have acquired elsewhere. Or you can bring in your own design. Prices are dependent upon the tattoos, but small-to-medium sized designs usually cost about $100. All required safety rules and regulations are strictly followed.
