It's probably the most difficult-to-undo decision you'll ever make – aside from hooking up with a colleague and/or having a child – so if you're going to get a tattoo, you'd better do the research and get it right.

Or let us do it for you; here are our seven picks for the top tattoo spots in Dublin.

All you need to do now is pluck up the courage and choose what to get!

7. Snakebite

You'll be in safe hands here, and they have tonnes of superb designs and inspiration to choose from over on their Facebook page.


6. Spilled Ink

They'll help you with a free consultation from Monday to Saturday and, along with their superb designs, you're sure to end up with exactly what you had in mind.


5. The Ink Factory

The Ink Factory is Dublin's newest urban social space; incorporating tattooing, bespoke barbering, piercing and coffee under one roof. That's how you do it.


4. Wildcat Ink

Wildcat Ink have been tattooing and piercing in Dublin since 1999, and one of the best things about them is their great website – giving you heaps in the lines of examples and inspiration.


3. Skin City

Aside from a deadly pun-based name, these guys have built up a seriously cool brand that feels like something out of a movie. Great selection of art to choose from and a super helpful team.

2. Reinkarnated

Okay, another winner on the pun front. And another spot in the very centre of town.

As they say themselves 'We love what we do and we do it fucking well'. Hard to argue with that!


1. Dublin Ink

The standard-bearer. It's been doing a great job for years, and it's earned a huge following of loyal customers as a result.

Add in the fact that their studio is shit-hot and this has to top our list of places to get a tattoo in Dublin
