The 10 Best Tattoo Shops In Atlanta


The 10 Best Tattoo Shops In Atlanta

Atlanta has no shortage of talent when it comes to tattoo shops and studios. The city owns a storied past filled with influences, cultures, and personalities that have produced some of the most notable tattooing in the United States, specifically with regard to contemporary and traditional tattooing. Tattooing has long been an essential part of Atlanta’s culture, yet the recent eruption in the popularity of tattooing has only helped to boost the reach of it’s most popular studios.

It was difficult to find a true list of the best tattoo shops in Atlanta, other than user generated groups and a few forums and optimized articles, so we decided to create our own.

Like our other lists, we do understand that the word “best” is quite subjective. And that our inclusions and exclusions may be somewhat polarizing. Our goal with these articles is to reflect a grouping of 10 artists in a given area that we are quite fond of – rather than that of all out gospel. We encourage you to send us submissions for any tattoo shops we may have missed, we would be happy to grow this list.

While we do consider this list a grouping of our “best tattoo shops in Atlanta” we also want to acknowledge a huge grouping of talented tattoo shops before we begin: Liberty Tattoo, Southern Star Tattoo, Tenth Street Tattoo, Apocalypse Tattoo Co.Tried and True Tattoo, Kingdom Tattoo, and many more.

Here is a look at our choice for best tattoo shops in Atlanta:
