go to sanlitun, once there is one in 3.3 building...or Tongli building...my memory is not clear....

and if you are in haidian, go to wudaokou, there got 2 shops,  not far from the subway stations....

I like a snowy Happy new year, rather than a no sky one...Beijing's time to ban the cars---the only solution for the time being...

Don't go to a cheap run down tattoo shop because many of those places can re-use needles its not as safe as going to a more professional shop. Recently someone got a tattoo and they found out they got aids when they went back home. If you go to Sanlitun or wudaokou make sure they are clean and make sure you ask them and find out if they reuse the needles...just trying to watch out for you safety wouldn't want you to catch a disease..

Longxiutang in 798 (by 751 power square where intro used to be held) is good. The owner, Little Dragon is an amazing tattoo artist who spent years working at one of the top tattoo studios in New York. It's extremely clean and the equipment is up to Western standards. If you're into goth or scarey tattoos, this is the place for you.

Even if a place has a good reputation as being clean. I can't ever imagine getting a tattoo in China. To risky in regards to your health imo.

It really depends on what style your current half finished tattoo is. If it is Japanese then you want to go and see DongDong at Mummy Tattoo:

 

http://www.mummy-tattoo.com/

 

His work is exceptional and he is recognised internationally. Google him for more details about his past - once you see who he apprenticed with I think you'll stop having any doubts as to his level of skill. I'm not convinced that he (or any other tattooist come to that) would want to complete a half finished piece from another artist though... 

 

You could also try the places listed on a previous eChinaCities article:

 

http://www.echinacities.com/beijing/city-life/four-top-tattoo-parlors-in-beijing_2.html

 

As concerns the hygiene of tattoo studios here in general I would say that the majority are very shoddy - but that's because the majority are just jokers trying to cash in on the new tattoo fad... so never go to the small place just down the road where you can get a colourful skin infection for 500RMB.

 

Instead go to the well known and/or recommended places listed above, and check them out yourself. If you are even the slightest bit worried about the cleanliness of the establishment then just walk away... just like you would do back home...

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
