Tattoo studios and Tattoo artists in Barcelona


If some years ago the tattoo was something much more exclusive and hard to understand, today It’s something totally normal and accepted.

In this post we will talk about the Tattoo in Barcelona, ​​sharing with you some of the tattoo and tattoo studios in Barcelona. But before that we want to comment on how the tattoo culture has evolved up to the present, where the city of Barcelona stands out in relation to tattooing among other places in Spain

Evolution of the culture of the Tattoo

With the growing trend of tattooing, it seems increasingly common, or to say it another way, it is less rare to see more and more tattooed people. Undoubtedly, this is the most critical moment in tattoo culture, from the origins of what we know as a modern tattoo in the late XIX and early XX centuries.

Although there are references to the introduction of the tattoo in the Western world almost a century before, when English expeditionaries learned certain tattoo techniques upon their return from Tahiti, it will not be until the American Civil War when the tattoo begins its true evolution and expansion to such and as we know it today. Besides that, and taking up again the current moment  the tattoo lives in our days, one could speak of an exponential growth in the last ten / fifteen years until now, where not only the number of artists (tattooists) has multiplied and so number of studios or tattoo shops where to get  them. Logically, the number of users, clients, or whatever they want to call them that they want to be marked with ink; It remains to be proven whether by fashion cause is trendy or truly by fascination and passion from our point of view, a way of understanding life, a philosophy that has become industry in a very short time. Undoubtedly the evolution of modern tattoo has to do with the evolution of an industry that in recent years has not stopped growing, being especially beneficial for some people.

It will be in the United States from where this evolution and expansion has become more evident, crossing borders and spreading globally. Even in Spain, the tattoo today has acquired a following and importance that a few years ago seemed impossible and much of that boom we owe it to cities like Madrid or Barcelona, ​​places where the tattoo came to never leave.

    Y en que os basáis para este tipo de cosas? Por qué mi estudio tiene una calificación de 5 en google y más de 50 reseñas positivas en facebook y por ello no quiere decir que seamos menos que la gente a la que le publicais sus estudios… si es por tatuajes mi residente es muy bueno, no comprendo por qué se hace esa selección tan escueta, somos muchos los que tatuamos bien y los que nos curramos mucho los diseños y el trato al cliente…

      En respuesta a Yo.
      Hola, lo primero, agradecerte la lectura del post y tu opinión. Lo segundo, si has leído la entrada, hemos dicho que vamos a compartir alguno de los estudios de tatuaje. En ningún momento hemos desprestigiado a los demás. Por otro lado, es nuestro post y por lo tanto escribimos según nuestros gustos, conocimientos, opiniones y experiencias. La intención nunca fue crear un listado de todos los tatuadores y estudios de Barcelona, la lista es inmensa y se puede extender mucho más en el momento que se busquen tatuadores sin estudio, que por cierto también hay a patadas y muy buenos. Por lo que nos basamos en opiniones reales de personas y también en lo que nos gusta e interesa, no en las calificaciones o estrellas que Google puede o no poner. Es cierto que hay muchos más estudios en Barcelona, unos mejores otros peores, con buenos tatuadores, buenos diseños y buen trato. Pero…al fin y al cabo cada uno recomienda lo que le conoce, lo que le gusta y porque no decirlo, lo que le da la gana, no? O tú recomendarías, por ejemplo, unas tintas que no has probado o que no te gustan? Sin ningún tipo de acritud pero no se puede ser tan invasivo… sin conocimiento y sobre todo sin saber y sin preguntar! Como podrás ver no recomendamos a nadie malo como para decir que, ¿en qué nos basamos…? Y dentro de lo bueno, recomendamos, como te comentamos, por nuestro gusto y experiencia. No dudo de la profesionalidad y la calidad de los demás, ni del tuyo. Pero no te confundas ni intentes generar ahora un debate pudiendo confundir a más gente; en ningún momento hemos criticado, menospreciado o hecho de menos a nadie, y menos a vosotros que ni siquiera tenemos el placer de conocer. Te invitamos a que hagas una nueva lectura del post y lo compruebes tú mismo si no te ha quedado del todo claro, cosa que parece. Quizá lo mejor hubiera sido un mail preguntando, objetando o mostrando interés o lo que sea… Ya que la selección se basa en quién lo escribe, como las millones de selecciones y clasificaciones que hay en internet, y donde por cierto tampoco no en todas aparecen todos. Por otro lado, de nuevo te invitamos a que nos des tus datos (nombre, estudio, localización) de forma que podamos comprobar que efectivamente aportáis algo al tattoo en Barcelona, y así incluiros dentro de este o futuros post, cosa que parece os importa. O incluso si tuvieras interés en conocer lo que hacemos y nuestros productos, danos tu dirección y gustosamente te mandaremos unas muestras gratuitas para que comprobéis vosotros mismos lo buenos que son nuestros bálsamos. Graciaaass! ;-
