We asked the tattoo artists of Best Ink to tell us about their experience with body art. Here’s what Alexis had to say.Q: What is the difference between a "tattooist" and an "artist?"A: The difference between a tattooist and an artist can be a complicated question. If the tattooist is also a gifted artist then there is no difference in the two. However there are a lot of people who "tattoo" who are not artists by any means so if that is what is meant by tattooist then the difference is the fact that one is an artist and one is not.
