Wildcat ink is has always been a go-to, located upstairs on the top floor of Stephens Green Shopping Center. Friendly staff, hygienic practices, they’ll provide you loads of inspiration or advice as needed. Also a great place to go to get a piercing!

Dublin Ink has got to be the home of tattooing in Dublin. Their work has to be seen to be believed, so check out their instagram to see some of their latest pieces of work. They also provide a laser removal service (very handy!). They regularly feature guest artists from abroad so keep an eye on their Facebook/Instagram to see what they are up to.

The Ink Factory can be found on Wellington Quay. It’s a nice little spot where you can get a tattoo, a piercing, a haircut or a coffee. It has some of the best recognized artists in Dublin, but The Ink Factory is more than just a tattoo studio. It is a social hub that feeds on creativity, inviting anyone or everyone to visit. Pop in a grab a coffee, visit the barbers and get some inspiration for your next ink masterpiece while you’re at it.
