Dating back 12,000 years ago, tattooing has remained one
of the most popular forms of self expression worldwide with
38%* of the world having at least one tattoo.
Built upon the addictive and statement rich nature of the tattoo scene, Celebrity Ink™ has grown from a single, yet proud tattoo studio in Phuket, Thailand in early 2013 to becoming the largest and most trusted tattoo brand globally, with more than 40+ studios across 10+ countries in just a few short but disruptive years.
Setting the standard for exceptional customer experience, quality artistry, premium tattoos, and freedom of self expression, Celebrity Ink™ has successfully elevated body art from underground to mainstream.
