US resident Kris Richter, from Nebraska, is advising people to seriously consider who they allow to tattoo their bodies.
Richter, who is the founder of Beyond the INK, said she realised there wasn’t place for those interested in getting a tattoo to find accurate information.
Despite her not being an artist herself, she said her work around the industry has inspired her to educate others.
Richter has even stated to other media outlets that even television shows such as “LA Ink” and “Miami Ink” provide false information and unrealistic expectations to those who are considering getting a tattoo.
The 25-year-old gave her first lecture on tattoo education at the at Indigo Body Art Gallery on Monday 13th February.
