United States Vermont
Tips from the community
Located on the shores of Lake Champlain, Burlington is an old-school hippie town known for its natural beauty, progressive values, and thriving arts scene. Come for the outdoor access, stay for the Bread and Puppet Theater (a political puppet theater that was founded in 1963.and known for its avant-garde, social/political performances), local food cooperatives, and art festivals (Burlington Discover Jazz Festival and the South End Art Hop, to start!).

woman, BIPOC, & queer-friendly tattoo shops in vermontleah (Leah Fishman) Ever walk into a tattoo stop and feel utterly ~uncomfy~? I've been laughed at, had my body critiqued, been told that certain placements (fingers, hands, ears) are off-limits for "pretty" women ... the list goes on, and I can't be the only one. Luckily, the industry is slowly becoming less gatekeepy, but it's still tough to find an artist and shop that gets (and totally accepts) your vibe. These Vermont studios are built on inclusivity, preach safety and comfort as a top priority, and welcome everyone, regardless of identity.
