5 Best Tattoo Studios in Seminyak
1. Artful Ink Tattoo Studio Bali
Artful Ink is an international network of tattoo studios in Bali, with others Down Under and on the party island of Ibiza. You can find their Seminyak shop on the main Petitenget route. They offer established standards in design, use of genuine Italian and Californian inks, sterile and single-use equipment, as well as good overall hygiene.
You can book your sessions inclusive of a hotel transfer if you’re staying anywhere in the Kuta-Legian-Seminyak zone. Among the many offered designs are script translations of Sanskrit from English. They also have a small café serving refreshments where you can sit back and admire your new body art.
2. Mason’s Ink
Australian managed, Mason’s Ink has 2 studios in Bali. One is in Seminyak and the other in Jalan Legian. The Seminyak studio is spotless with hospital grade equipment and setups, where its core crew of professional and talented artists work on their clients.Their designs include colorful ink works, which go very well into graded watercolor-style floral and feather patterns.
Their shops are equipped with large screen TVs that help take the boredom out of your ink session. Their friendly assistants will even go out of their way to go get you a nibble when you’re feeling peckish, or an ice-cold Bintang when you’re in the mood.
3. Mex Tattoos
Mex Tattoos is a tattoo studio on Legian’s main Jalan Legian route that can do tattoos of any size. Designs to choose from range from portraits, tribal style patterns to realistic designs in color, black or grey. You can also bring your own motif, which they’ll happily apply.
The studio is clean and well laid out, and so are their operating setups. Balinese owner and artist, Sugi, is often on site and has been honing his craft since 2008 at various other tattoo studios in Bali before setting up his own. Mex is a great one to go to if you’re up for Japanese Yakuza style tattoos, which is Sugi’s favorite.
4. Bali Tattoo Studio (Gods of Ink)
Consider dropping by Bali Tattoo Studio whenever you’re roaming the southern part of Legian and thinking of getting inked. It’s one of the great tattoo studios in Legian with skilled artists in its team who use international quality inks and equipment.
Bali Tattoo Studio, who nickname themselves as ‘Gods of Ink’, has a comfortable and modern studio with air-conditioning and Wi-Fi. Tattoo artists Rudi, Eka and Dedy are happy to translate your own concept or design into a lifetime masterpiece. They also provide hotel transfer services.
5. Suku Suku Tatau
If you’re game, check out Suku Suku Tatau, a tattoo and body piercing studio on Legian’s Jalan Nakula. It’s where you can get traditional tattoo services – using hand-tapping techniques with traditional tribal tools! Although the tattoo artist, Albar, has modern tattoo machines in store, the main game at Suku Suku Tatau is by traditional techniques using wooden and bamboo tools.
