The 13 Best Tattoo Artists in Austin


The 13 Best Tattoo Artists in Austin

Naming the best tattoo artists in Austin is no easy task; there’s a humongous group of talented artists, and there were no shortage of close calls to be made.

If you’re searching for the best tattoo artists in Austin you’re likely only to find a few articles from SEO optimized tattoo sites, an excellent review from complex, and a few odd notes from sites like Yelp, Reddit, and the like.  So we took it upon ourselves to craft something worthy of the artists in question.

Like our other lists, we do understand that the word “best” is quite subjective. And that our inclusions and exclusions may be raise questions and comments. Our goal with these lists is always to reflect a grouping of artists in a specific area that we are quite fond of – rather than the word of all out gospel.

While we do consider this list a grouping of our “best tattoo artists in Austin” we also want to acknowledge a huge grouping of talented tattoo artists before we begin: Wendi Ramirez, Deseo, Chris Gunn, Kyle Giffen, Justin Redsky, James Rhodes, Ali Walters, Cody Jones, Skylar Pane, Annie Alonzi, Jenn Alee and Katja Ramirez. As well, a grouping of some of the best tattoo shops in Austin: Southside Tattoo, Little Pricks Tattoo Studio, Dovetail Studio, Atomic Tattoo & Body Piercing, Blindside Tattoo Studio, True Blue Tattoo, HubtattooAffinity Tattoo and Piercing, Royal Tiger Tattooing.

We encourage you to send us submissions for any tattooists we may have missed, we would be happy to grow this list.
