Nowhere legally I'm afraid, there are some "underground" Filipino guys you may be able to find on Facebook but the police have been cracking down.

Take a cheap flight to Goa instead.

You can't officially. There are apparently people who do them in their homes. You go to him, he does it for you. I am told it's sterile and hygienic but not legal.

I wasnt getting a tattoo when he got deported but I imagine if they caught you, you would get in trouble as well.

Tattooing is illegal, it is not illegal to have one already.

I am also curious. If I have a visible tattoo, will I get in trouble ?
