In the six years that The Mad Tatter’s been operating in BG, we’ve built a strong relationship with all kinds of folks. We’ve also fallen in love with the city and community. Naturally, most of our staff is from Bowling Green or the Southern Kentucky area.
Bowling Green is situated between Nashville, TN, and Louisville, KY. We’re a regional hub for the many small, rural towns located across South Central Kentucky and Northern Middle Tennessee.
Accessible to many, BGKY offers a wide range of businesses and shopping options without the need to travel a couple of hours to a major metropolitan city.
Bowling Green’s size brings Goldilocks’ tale to mind. Not too big, and not too small. BGKY is just right, offering various services and stores without the drag of the big city’s hustle and bustle.
A local myth in BG is that we have the highest number of restaurants per capita in the United States. It may only be a tall tale, but it’s a fun story to tell and definitely conveys the vast number of food options in town!
Of these many cuisine choices, there is a diverse offering encompassing foods from across the globe. Beyond that, there are most likely a few different restaurants to choose from in each category.
There are many independent establishments, as well as smaller chains that still have a small business vibe to them. No matter your food preferences, BGKY is sure to offer something to satisfy your cravings!
College students are eager to learn and experience life on their own. This often leads to entrepreneurship and other creative endeavors that the entire region can enjoy. Graduates of WKU have started many local businesses that we all love!
Here at The Mad Tatter, we offer discounted tattoo rates for WKU students, as well as current and past military service-members. This is just our way of saying thanks for investing in yourself, in your community, and in the safety of our country!

Welcoming of the tattoo industry
A quick drive down the Bypass in Bowling Green will give you an idea of how the locals feel about tattoos.
In short–we love them!
The several shops in town are a strong indicator that BG is tattoo-friendly. Beyond the many tattoo businesses, the amount of tattooed residents is reassuring as well.
Many local businesses have no problem hiring employees with visible tattoos. This is likely due to the number of college students and young adults in our workforce. The acceptance of tattoos in local businesses allows people to express themselves how they see fit.
Finally, Bowling Green is supportive of local business owners and the tattoo industry. We have had nothing but overwhelming support from our clients and the community.
Tattoos may have had a negative stigma in the past, but there’s no doubt that BGKY embraces body art.
Our amazing clients
As artists, we must stay hungry for knowledge and continue to learn and hone our craft. Listening to everyone’s stories teaches us many things about life, ourselves, and each other.
