About Us

Our Mission

Here at AuthorityTattoo, our main aim is to be the most well-respected and trusted resource for tattoo and piercing related content on the internet, and we like to think we do a pretty good job at that already, having already delivered reliable, well-examined content to over 34 million readers since 2016.

We’re not here to gloss over the nitty-gritty parts of the tattooing or piercing processes; we’re here to deliver cold, hard facts about what you’re most likely to experience and encounter on your body art journey, in the most detailed, friendly and helpful way that we think is possible.

We wish to become the only website on the internet that is truly dedicated to educating readers about every possible aspect of the tattoo and piercing aftercare process, and to help ensure your tattoo or piercing continues to look amazing for many years to come.

Since starting out in March 2016, we have quickly grown to become one of the true leading sources for reliable tattoo and piercing information on the internet. Why do people love us? Because our advice is thoroughly researched, rigorously fact-checked, medically reviewed, and incredibly in-depth..

We Like To Get Our Facts Straight

We want to make it very clear that we are always striving to give you information that is up to date and correct in order to help you achieve your body art goals in the clearest way possible. This is why we’ve gathered support from the amazingly talented and experienced team at Chronic Ink Tattoo who have independently read and fact-checked everything on AuthorityTattoo.com wherever you see the ‘Fact-Checked’ button at the top of the page.

This is to assure our readers that everything on this website is not only carefully researched and reviewed from the outset, but is also cross-checked and verified by one of the most professional and knowledgeable teams of tattoo artists around.

Medically Reviewed Content

We love to provide helpful and accurate information based on the latest scientific research, which is why we’ve teamed up with highly experienced board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jennifer T. Haley, MD FAAD.

Dr. Haley has read, reviewed and medically fact-checked everything on AuthorityTattoo.com wherever you see the ‘Medically reviewed’ section at the top of the page. We’ve gone this extra step so you can be sure that what you’re reading is approved and endorsed by board-certified medical personnel who really know what they’re talking about.

Who Am I?

Dan Hunter

Owner / Chief Editor

I’m Dan, a self-confessed ink addict and studier of all forms of tattooing and body piercings for over 10 years, and I’m the chief editor here at AuthorityTattoo.

My love and experiences of body art have taken me to every corner of the internet in search of high-quality, in-depth information that I could digest and use to increase my knowledge and pass it on to others.

However, over the years I became increasingly disappointed with how little high-quality content there was surrounding these topics. There was nowhere to look for conclusive, actionable information.

This is why AuthorityTattoo was born.

I wanted people to be able to learn from independently fact-checked and medically reviewed content so they could be completely confident that what they were reading would be able to help them as much as possible on their tattoo or piercing journey.

While no longer as active in the tattooing and piercing community, I still strive to relentlessly improve my knowledge on the various methods of tattooing and body modification throughout the world, and I’m here to help educate, teach, and advise readers on all things body art related.
