Best tattoo shops in Paris

Feel like getting a tattoo but you don’t know where to go or which tattoo artist to ask for? We tell you everything about some good address in Paris and Ile de France where you will find your style and happiness for sure.

Realistic, traditional, old school, graphic, biomechanical or even lettering and abstract… tattoo styles are many and varied. These past few years, tattoos have been very popular in France. From small tattoos to bigger pieces, everyone has a style and ideas.

If many of you already have an idea about what tattoo they want on their skin, others still hesitate about the tattoo shop and the artist who will perfectly master the tattoo machine to ink you and enhance your body.

Here are then a few Parisian and Ile de France tattoo addresses to get inked confidently!

Tin-Tin Tatouage
Maybe have you already heard of the famous Tin-Tin? Seen by many as the “pioneer of tattoo in France” he’s also the one organizing the Mondial du Tatouage, and cofounder and chairman of the Syndicat national des artistes tatoueurs (SNAT). Making realist and Japanese tattoos, his shop is found in Pigalle but to get a tattoo by Tin-Tin you have to wait for a really, really long time! Yet, be rest assured, Tin-Tin also knows how to get surrounded well and his colleague Dusty Brasseur, aka Duza, is now a reference thanks to his graphic and colorful style inspired by graffiti.

L'Encrerie
L’Encrerie is one of those new and very trendy tattoo shops in Paris. By the way, L’Encrerie – created by Leo Gavaggio and Jey No name – is more like a creation studio. Here each artist has its style. For instance, there’s Léo Gavaggio and his love for typography, Dizzy Call and his passion for realism or even the very talented Favry and her super fine lines and her very graphic style that make more than one people fall in love with her style! At L’Encrerie, you will also likely fall for tattoos made by Max Lesquatt and his precision, Belles et Buth and rather dark drawings or even Dylan Long Cho.
