Bengaluru is home to some seriously talented tattoo artists. From delicate flowers to elaborate art on one’s entire back, there’s an artist for everyone. So let’s take a look at some of the best tattoo parlours in town.
One of the largest tattoo parlours in Bengaluru, Skin Deep in Indiranagar is home to some of the most creative tattoo artists in the city. From cover-ups to elaborate art on your body, you’re in pretty capable hands here.
Founded by Girish BV, Brahma Tattoo Studio in Church Street has been around since 2002, and even 20 years later, it is translating thoughts, fantasies, memories into ink.
Founded by Pradeep Menon, Dark Arts Tattoo Studio In Koramangala took off in 2003 and has been one of the most popular studios since. In the beginning, Dark Arts was where you went to get your Celtic designs but over time, they expanded their portfolio and you can get all kinds of ink done here. Dark Arts also takes care of piercings, done in the presence of a doctor.
Owned by Veer Hegde, voted by GQ as one of the best tattoo artists, Eternal Expression in Richmond Road is yet another hot spot for tattoo lovers in Bengaluru. From tiny one to commemorate a day or a person to intricate works of abstract art on your back, these are the guys for you.
From tattoos, digital art, murals and hand-painted customised work – Muruku in Hennur is like a one-stop shop for various artistic needs – whether it’s a wall or your arm. If you want a spot of graphic art on your body, check them out. They do great tats in colour.
From tribal art to depiction of nature to even cute little personal messages, Verve located in BTM 2nd Stage has the skill to shape your idea of an ink into something gorgeous. Tasteful, aesthetic, and safe are what you’ll get here. Verve also does body piercings, if that’s your thing too.
If you need a little personal something inked on your arm or somewhere tucked away, Xtreme Tattoos in Jayanagar, Hanumanth Nagar, despite its name, can do a marvellous job with delicate art. They’re pretty good with the larger and intricate ones too.
