Bookkeeper, bookkeeping, bookkeepers are three. There are other words that have hyphons in them that are considered by some to have three consecutive double letters. Some examples are deer-reeve, feed-door, and heel-footed. These words are not widely considered as having three consecutive double letters. The argument can be made to suport them however. Just thought I’d explain a little. :)

I know they are normally called tattooist but If I am not mistaken TATTOOEE is an alternative name.

Tattooee would imply someone recieving a tattoo, Not someone giving one. However It’s still not a word
