My tattoo artist recently retired. She was incredible. I've had several artists over the years, but she was hands down the best! Since her announcement, I've been on the hunt for the person that will fill those giant shoes.

I did a ton of research and ultimately went with the Google reviews for guidance on ranking. Every single one of these studios has a 4.9 star rating or better and at least 100 reviews. One is a clear stand out with nearly 3,000 positive reviews.

Take a peek at some of Minnesota's best tattoo studios of the year.

If you can't tell by the photos I chose to share, I'm a huge animal lover, so I naturally gravitate toward those kind of tattoos. If an artist can crush a dog tattoo, they're my person.
