Tattoos in a foreign country might sound like a bad idea, but Isla Mujeres boasts several tattoo shops with reputable artists. We would never recommend getting a tattoo, whether it's your first or your 21st, without doing your due diligence. We can, however, speak from our personal experiences with these tattoo shops. You need a shop that follows the strictest sanitary guidelines, with quality equipment, and talented artists. We feel the following shops meet that criteria.
