Best Tattoo Shops In Baltimore

October 21, 2014 8:00 AM

Baltimore, it’s time to get inked. Tattooing is more than a trendy sub culture that just happens to have existed for centuries; it’s a validated form of self-expression, a way to shout without saying any words at all. Whether you’re still deciding on where to place your first beauty mark or are in the process of completing you second sleeve, this list will serve all of your needs. Remember, the last thing that anyone wants to worry about is the thought of taking a little something extra home with your new symbol – like an infection.

Other shops like Saints & Sinners, Charm City Tattoo, Read Street and Baltimore Tattoo Museum made a previous list we published on the site.

Check out the following list of adoring shops where your creativity can run wild (and sterile, too).

Have Fun Be Lucky Tattoo
820 W. 36th St.
Baltimore, MD 21211
(410) 235-5930
www.havefunbeluckytattoo.com

Have Fun Be Lucky Tattoo is praised for its innovative and talented artists. The establishment is known for reasonable prices and offers a wide array of work displayed proudly in a portfolio at which clients can take a gander before going under the needle. The clean, relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff will console any waning trepidations.

Deville Ink
5920 Eastern Ave.
Baltimore, MD 21224
(410) 400-9641
www.devilleink.com

If you’re looking for a bad shut-your-mouth tattoo, then Deville Ink is the spot for you. With a killer portfolio that greets you just before heading to the work area, this shop is it. Not only is Deville Ink sanitary, but the shop also has regular specials for patrons to take advantage of. Just think clean, cheap and cute – you can’t ask for more than that.

Charmed Life
4505 Harford Road
Baltimore, MD 21214
(443) 449-7630
www.charmedlifegallery.com

At first glance, you may mistake the storefront of the Charmed Life for a quaint and charming home on a major street in Northeast Baltimore. This is quite fitting, as the homey interior and warm staff are rather inviting to clientele. As an added bonus, once a month the venue hosts gallery openings with live music featuring the art of local tattoo artists.
