Articulture Apologizes to Offended Tattoo Shops in Fort Myers

Articulture has issued an apology to some of the tattoo shops in Fort Myers that became offended at the recent radio commercial put out by Southern Florida’s premier tattoo shop. In the commercial, consumers were warned of unprofessional and inferior tattoo artists in the area. The reason for the radio spot was not to belittle or slander any particular business, but to bring to the attention of tattoo shop owners the fact that some of their artists were not looking out for the best interest of the customers and the industry reputation.

Articulture Founder, John Improta, explained that since opening the shop in Fort Myers, he has seen a lot of poor work being produced by some of the local artists. He said that not only did the tattoos lack creativity and style, but were applied using inferior methods, using no blending or shading. He added that this type of second-rate bodywork and lack of attention to details also leads to a danger of infection to the customers. These are things that Improta feels should just be automatic … part of a shop’s standard operating procedure.

Another thing that Improta claims is that many of these artists are applying tattoos on people that should be turned away. People who don’t know what they are doing, or who are completely naïve to the permanency of the procedure, should be turned away and given time to consider their decision. For instance, a young girl who comes into the shop on a whim, wanting the majority of her body covered in black ink, should not be serviced on that date. The body artist has a responsibility to sit with her and review the ramifications of what she is about to do. Improta emphasizes the importance of tattoo shops acting in a manner that will most benefit the client and the industry, not what will make the shop a quick dollar.

Improta takes great measures to assure that the tattoo artists employed by him are amongst the best in the nation, and feels like all tattoo establishments should follow suit. He believes many of the shops in the Fort Myers area should raise the qualification standards of their artists by providing better training and extensive critiquing of their work before allowing them to move forward as a fully qualified tattoo artist. He states that just passing the licensing test should not qualify anyone to start work immediately unless there has been a successful apprenticeship and a proof of abilities to the shop owners.

Articulture is a good example of what a tattoo shop should provide its customers. They are the only tattoo shop in Fort Myers that is accredited by the Better Business Bureau, and they place customer service as top priority. The skilled artists at Articulture will sit with a client and help create a design for them that will put a smile on his or her face. Articulture knows that by looking out for the safety and satisfaction of the customers, they are paying tribute to the entire tattoo industry. What others may consider “raising the bar,” Articulture considers the norm.

Articulture Presents a Few Reasons to Get a Tattoo

Articulture Studio Z wants to present a few reasons why people go to Tattoo shops in Fort Myers to get a tattoo. It is a big commitment to have an artist place a work of art on your body, as it will be there for a very long time. So one must carefully consider the reason he or she wants to get a tattoo. Knowing this, deciding on the final design will be much easier.

When someone gets a tattoo, it is much more meaningful if there is a particular line of reasoning when they do it. If it is made with a clear mind, and with a purpose in mind, chances are that they won’t ever regret the tattoo and want to have it removed or covered later.

Appearance: Some people get a tattoo simply to decorate their body. There is nothing wrong with this, but careful consideration and contemplation should be made to assure that it is a design that will compliment your body in a way that will be pleasing to you for a lifetime. Make sure to get a design that you interpret as beauty. The artists at Studio Z will assist you in finding, or designing something that you find attractive, and that you would like to show to the world.

Family: Perhaps you want to celebrate the birth of your child, or show your family the love you have for them by placing names or portraits on your body. This is a way of displaying your devotion to your loved ones in a way that stands out and conveys your feelings for them. It says that you are with them and they are with you always.

In Memoriam: Some people get tattoos when they lose a loved one to death. They feel that by doing so, they keep the memory of him or her alive forever. Many get tattoos to show their devotion and their remorse to the departed, and to honor their memory. These tattoos can be in the form of special text, a portrait, a symbol that had special meaning to the deceased, or a combination of any of these. By memorializing a loved one through a tattoo, you will always carry their memory outwardly, as well as inwardly. There are those who get tattoos of people who have passed on that they didn’t even know, yet admired greatly for what they stood for.

Life Events: There may be a special event that has occurred in your life that you want to commemorate forever. Perhaps you want to get a tattoo in celebration of your wedding, or in recognition of a huge accomplishment that you or a loved one made in life. It could be a design regarding a hobby or a sport that you have accelerated in, or it may be a huge event that you attended. There are things that occur in life that we want to remember forever, or that we are very proud of that we consider worthy of body art.

Spirituality: Perhaps you feel very strongly about a religious status, or about a principle that is brought about by your religious convictions. For instance, many Christians get tattoos involving a cross. Many spiritual beliefs come with symbols of representation that one may want to convey to the world. Some feel that they are proving their dedication by getting a permanent reminder of who they are spiritually, and what they stand for.

While these are certainly not the only reasons people get tattoos, they are all common, legitimate reasons that convince people to decorate their body with something that they believe or stand for. Of all the tattoo shops in Fort Myers, Articulture Studio Z is where you will find talented artists who understand your desires, and can make them a reality by helping you create a design or providing you with ideas, then applying them to your body.
