Connecticut Association of Professional Tattooers, Inc.

CAPT is an organization comprised solely of licensed Connecticut tattoo artists, who work in legitimate tattoo shops. Our goal is the betterment of the tattoo community, and preservation of the public health through appropriate education. We are a collaborative voice to state representatives and health departments to establish regulations that reflect the wants and needs of tattoo artists. It will be a continuing effort to ensure that current regulations continue to reflect the present standards of the industry.

We are a group of professional tattoo artists, men and women, small business owners in CT.

We are also residents of Connecticut; we have families, children, parents.

We care about the well being and safety of our community because it is our community.

In order to preserve the professionalism and integrity of our craft, we will dispel myths created through rumor, ignorance, and misinformation.

We will ensure the safety of our fellow citizens through education by offering a free resource for accurate information.

We are advocates for those tattoo artists who engage in safe responsible practices.

By preserving integrity, we will earn respect and ensure quality.

If you care about the quality of tattooing in Connecticut, the best way to support the association is to sign our petition, or consider making a donation, and then tell your friends and family about it. It is open to the public, to show that people who get tattooed care about safe and responsible tattoo practices.
