The British Tattoo Artists Federation is Britain’s professional tattoo artists organisation, representing the interests of its members and protecting the public and our valued and historic trade. Our members have a wealth of experience.
Although we cannot claim to be the oldest or largest organisation, we are determined to forge an alliance of professionals who, working together and with YOUR help, may in time make a positive difference to Tattooing in Britain.
With hundreds of years of collective tattooing under their belts we are in an ideal position to promote safe tattooing in Britain. All members have been registered tattooists for a minimum of 5 years and have to agree to meet the BTAF standards, which not only meet those laid down by the authorities, but exceed them. Our aim is to be informative and professional and as an organization we want to tackle some of the issues that currently face the tattoo community—tattooists and collectors alike, including ensuring that:
· all professional tattooists work safely
· the public are protected from dangerous amateurs
· the public are guided to allow them to make an informed choice on getting a good, safe tattoo
