Would you trust someone on Craigslist if they offered tattoo services in exchange for electronics?

I found a woman on Craigslist who has a tattoo parlor and is offering her services in exchange for electronics/video games/dvds for her kids. Do you think that is legit/safe/etc?

  • I am all about bartering for services and goods... and if the economy slips down any further we'll be seeing more and more of that. I would definitely be wary, but I would with any tattoo artist, no matter what. There are things to look for, and those would apply no matter what the payment was or the place of business. Does she have and use the autoclave? Use appropriate body-fluid precautions, like gloves? Is the place clean? And definitely ask for references so that you can talk to others who had work done by her. If all those things come up fine, then I would have no issues at all with what she wants in exchange.

  • Hell no!!! 1 i don't like craigs list. Some people there are really rude. Plus you should NEVER get a tattoo from some one you know little lone of someone not at a shot. You can get bad ifections or a disease.

  • I want to flag her ads on Craigslist, seeing as she has a bunch, but I wasn't sure if I should. Hence my asking. Her page is for anyone interested.

  • If she has a state certified liscens and it is current and you WATCH her take everything out of a fresh new pack, then i dont see why it would be a problem...however, i would want to see some of her work because remember you will have it forever!
