Tattoo Artists in Bangalore: Finding the Best Artists in Town!

Tattoo Shops In Bangalore ​

What makes a good tattoo artist? It might sound like a loaded question – and that’s because it is!

 Art is expression. With tattoos, art is the expression of both a tattoo artist and the person getting inked. Knowing how good an artist is, therefore, is extremely important when choosing who you get your tattoo from.

 But art is not objective. And neither is the skill of an artist. This is even truer when it comes to tattoos since there is such a wide range of styles an artist can specialize in – and most tattoo artists specialize in more than one style of tattooing. Some styles, such as tribal, religious, minimalist script tattoos and certain designs such as animal tattoos are very common and you’ll find most tattoo artists do them, each with their own personal touch.

So if art and skill are subjective, how do we select the best artist for you? We don’t.

Instead, we provide you with a list of artists who are at the top of their specialization – and let you make the right choice for yourself! Maybe their art will inspire you, or maybe you already have a design in mind and have been waiting to find the right tattoo artist to ink it for you. Either way, we’re sure this list will help you narrow your search for the best tattoo artist in Bangalore!

Click on any of the artist or head straight to Jhaiho.com to narrow your tattoo artist search in Bangalore. Jhaiho is making your tattoo hunt easier by listing tattoo studios with details like Studio fees, Specialization, Amenities and much more. 

Now let’s get to it! Here are our picks for some of the best tattoo artists in Bangalore.

Verve Tattoo Studio

While many presume larger pieces with great detail are the hardest to do, small tattoos are often just as hard because they require precision and skill not common in a novice artist. It takes years of experience to be able to work a machine that way, and even more to be able to understand ink and skin to such a degree that one can create stunning pieces with such a limited canvas.

Though adept at various styles of tattooing, Jessie of Verve Tattoo Studio enjoys working on tattoos that are unique and challenging – whether they be abstract ornamental sleeves or tiny minimalist tattoos.

Verve also does some brilliant work with colours, portraits, and coverups, and their catalog boasts some impressive ornamental and spiritual tattoos as well.

Book an appointment with them at Verve Tattoo Studio. Verve’s slots fill up quickly, so be sure to book in advance!

They also do some great minimal couple tattoos! Ancient is your choice if you’re looking to get inked with your partner, friend, sibling – even parent!
