Where Canggu is concerned, it’s almost a cardinal sin not to have a tattoo decorating that sun-kissed skin. Don’t know where to get your next stamp? Let us lead the way to Artful Ink Tattoo Studio…
Artful Ink is the rockstar of the Bali tattoo studio scene. Where many tattoo studios are grimy with awful laminated pages depicting generic tattoo options lining the walls, and seedy tattooists waiting to leave their mark on you, Artful Ink is essentially the very opposite. It’s all glittery chandeliers and impressive gold murals, with the fresh smell of disinfectant and ink assuring your doubts; the hypnotic buzz of the tattoo gun lulling you into your happy place as the needles pierce your skin and you welcome that sweet, sweet pain which you came here for… The slogan “#ofcourseithurts” is there on the wall in big, bold letters, to assure you that they know what they’re doing, and you’re definitely in the right place.
Located on Petitenget, right on the border of the Gu and the Yak, Artful Ink is a destination for tattoo aficianados and first-timers alike. The professionalism is apparent from the second you step in. You’re greeted by professional staff who sit down with you to discuss your needs. Whether it’s a full sleeve you’re after, or matching BFF tattoos, or just a correction to a blotched job you received in one of the cheap places that line the streets of Poppies 1, you’ve come to the right place. Each of the resident tattoo artists are just that: artists. Anyone can hold a tattoo gun and press it against skin, but you need a true artist’s eye to ensure you walk out the front door with greatness marking your skin for the rest of your life.
Expect to be treated like royalty here. Whether you’re stopping by for the AC, wifi, coffee and cakes, or to discuss your next tattoo, rest assured that you will be in the best, most Artful hands.
