I would like to create a website with the exact same concept as Trip Advisor but for Tattoo parlors and Barber shops.
These will be two seperate web sites.
Basically, it is hard to find a good tattoo shop or barber shop when you are in your own city let alone in another country. Especially with things like getting a tattoo or hair where you want the service and end result to be perfect. These websites will enable you to
- Search Tattoo/Barber shops by their profiles and their artists or barber will have profiles also (what they specialise in, years of experience....)
- Customers will review and add their comments the same as trip advisor, developing a democratic rating of the place
- Customers can post pictures of what they got done either at the Barber's or Tattoo shop (these can be reviewed also)
- Users can then make decisions on where to go to either get a tattoo or get a cut throat shave etc etc by taking into account customer reviews and official profile data
The shops can then be ranked based on this (e.g best barber in New York or in the world based on reviews) and provided awards just like trip advisor (certificates for overall winners and best up and comer etc)
- The search engine will need to be comprehensive with appropriate filters so that users can find exactly what they want
- The ability to book an appointment online is a key component also
Design share - as a part of the sites we can even create a design portfolio contributed by the community e.g. a portfolio of tattoo designs of dragons and other designs
