Written by Christine

Getting a tattoo is a lifelong commitment, so when you get one you want to make sure that the tattoo parlor you visit has a good reputation and satisfied customers. Tattoos are works of art that you wear on your body forever so finding the right place to get your tattoo done takes a little bit of research. Here are some suggestions of studios in Eixample where you can get a high-quality and beautiful tattoo.

Getting a tattoo at Diddy Tattoo is a great way to remember your vacation in Barcelona or to get that piece that you’ve always wanted. This tattoo parlor is located on Carrer Aragó in Eixample Esquerra, a clean and modern studio that is run by talented tattoo artists. You can visit Diddy Tattoo Tuesday through Saturday from 11- 8PM. While tattoo parlors accept walk-ins, it’s always best to make an appointment ahead of time to make sure that the artist has enough time to prepare your piece to your liking. If you give your tattoo artist an idea in advance or a photo or a drawing to work with, they can sketch something up and have it ready for your appointment. If you look at Diddy Tattoo’s website you can find an online gallery of previous tattoos, including an impressive display of black and grey. This is the most traditional style of tattoo, but they also do color as well.


L’embruix has one location right off of La Rambla and another in Eixample on Carrer Roger de Llúria, with both shops offering you artistic and unique tattoos. This location is in the heart of the district, a great place to rent if you’re thinking of living in this part of the city. When you make an appointment here for your tattoo, you can have peace of mind that this tattoo studio is up to standards for cleanliness and safety and have been successfully pleasing their clients. You can browse the extensive photo gallery on their website to get a sense of the artists’ style and work to see how detailed and well-done the final products are. L’embruix also offers services for body piercing as well, done professionally by trained piercers. If you know someone who would like a tattoo in the future and are short on gift ideas, you can purchase gift cards for L’embruix online and give it as the perfect gift for the tattoo lover in your life.
