There’s a massive group of talented artists and a long standing history of traditional, Japanese, and contemporary tattooing in all of Boston. For this reason, naming the best tattoo artists in Boston (the most populous city in all of Massachusetts) is no a simple ask. And not one that we chose to take lightly.
When you start searching for the best tattoo artists in this awesome city you can’t find any concrete content or listings. There are only a few optimized results and a random assortment of Yelp like items, so, we decided to put something together deserving of the artists in question. We hope you’ll enjoy.
Like our other lists, we do understand that the word “best” is quite subjective. And that our inclusions and exclusions may 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. We encourage you to send us submissions for any tattooists we may have missed, we would be happy to grow this list.
While we do consider this list a grouping of our “best tattoo artists in Boston” we also want to acknowledge a HUGE grouping of talented tattoo artists that we could not have not made this article without: Neil England, Darlene DiBona, Melissa Baker, Drew V., Amanda Abbot, Brian Hemming, Chris Marchetto, Holly Azara, T.J. Bransfield, and Stephen Kroll.
