TatRing.com is part of the HubPages Network of User-Generated Content Sites. We are a community of tattoo and piercing enthusiasts and experts who want to share our knowledge with the world. We are committed to providing a high-quality site with accurate advice and information about tattoos and piercings.

Our readers are looking for trustworthy advice, inspiration, and answers. They want to find ideas and tips for their perfect tattoo or piercing, e.g., What does a koi fish represent? Where do people typically get surface piercings? How do watercolor, dot-work, and fine-line tattoos age? And they want to know the process of getting, maintaining, and troubleshooting that perfect tattoo or piercing once they’ve decided on it, e.g., How do you choose which piercing parlor’s for you? What if you need to fix a tattoo or you want to hide it? We welcome new authors with a fresh perspective and specific, helpful knowledge in any of these areas.

Potential authors must sign-up on HubPages.com and pass Boot Camp, HubPages’s quality assessment program for new authors, before being published on TatRing. Only tattoo and piercing articles that are of the highest quality will have the opportunity to move from HubPages.com to TatRing.com.

In a nutshell…

We are looking for authors with a genuine interest and passion in tattoos and piercings and whose main motivation is to inform and inspire (not to make money). Authors should have a unique perspective and be willing to share their personal experiences with their readers. Articles should be well written, have original insights into the topic, include high-quality media (preferably original), and contain no spelling errors, grammar mistakes, or spammy elements.

We are not looking for articles that have been published elsewhere, are simple regurgitations of content, or that are written purely to promote a blog or brand. We are also not looking for authors whose main motivation is to make money via unnecessary links, products or spammy SEO practices—if money is your goal, TatRing is not the right venue for your information.
