Ben Shaw loves tattoos as well as tattooing. He has been into tattoos from a young age, and he made a career out of tattooing. However, he got himself trained before he started doing tattoos for business. Ben’s goal is to bring ethics into the body art industry. There are many tattoo artists out there who are unlicensed and do not use the proper methods, which may harm the people.
Ben Shaw is a professional tattoo artist in Albuquerque. His work is famous throughout the state. New Mexico Tattoo Industry is immensely popular. From locals to tourists, everyone loves to get a tattoo here. The revenue generated from the body art industry is commendable.
But people can be fooled, and going to the wrong place for a tattoo can be harmful. It can cause many health hazards. That’s why Ben Shaw has worked on adding ethics to the body art industry. He encourages people to visit legal tattoo artists and stay safe.

Jacob Candelaria. Together they created a set of regulations to be followed by tattoo artists in New Mexico.
Moreover, the ‘Board of Body Art Practitioners’ got formed, and today, Ben Shaw serves as the chairman of the board. Along with that, he has also co-founded the Guild of Ethical Tattooists and Archetype Tattoo. Ben Shaw is a man who is serious about his art and profession.
