Default number of tattoo shops in the UK

Guys,

Just curious if any of you in the industry knows how many active tattoo and piercing shops are there in the UK?

I've been trying to find out but the best I can find was approximately 800 back in 2001. Any current statistics available?

-B

If only people did some research before getting a tat - I know I spent about 12 months looking at all the studios locally before getting my first one.
Eventually went to Rob Doubtfire in Bradford and got a fab celtic armband done.
14 years later it still looks fine.
It definately pays to research the artist before letting em work on you.
Why rush into it...........it is going to be in your skin forever! (unless you get it lasered or covered up....)
