Tattoo Blogs

I love ink.

While it might just be a tattoo to some, to others it’s more than art on flesh. It’s beautifully freeing expression; a raw way to share your soul with the world.

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with this trend of nature-inspired tattoos.

Particularly mesmerizing is the work of Ukrainian tattoo artist Rita Zolotukhina, who uses actual plants – leaves and flowers – to design tattoos. Her artistry is amazing.

So because I’ve never covered tattoos in this space, we’re going to look at some great tattoo blogs.

1. Th’ink

Th’ink is the official blog of Things&Ink magazine.

Like the magazine, the blog covers tattoos and the artists behind them.

“Editorial content discusses tattoos against their rich cultural history and current tattoo trends,” the blog says, of Things&Ink. “Things&Ink is a collector’s item for tattoo collectors … It is more than just a magazine, it’s a lifestyle.”

I enjoyed several posts on the site, including Interview with China’s “First Lady of Tattoo” Zhuo Dan Ting.

Ting discusses her art background in this interview: “My father was an artist too and a art teacher. He started teaching me art when I was five years old, every night I would draw on the kitchen floor with him. This eventually evolved to paper and canvas, then art college and university.”

Other Th’ink posts I liked include Cold Girl Fever: Katie Thirks and Interview with Charlotte Verduci.

2. Hoopers Electric

Hoopers Electric is the tattooing and art site of Thomas Hooper.

Hooper works out of Rock of Ages Tattooing in Austin.

“I am a tattooer, an artist, a husband, and a father,” Hooper says, on his blog. “My sensibilities as an artist are defined by how I may incorporate and blend these identities into my tattooing.”

I really like this site. There are so many layers here.

Notable posts include Book of Patterns II, John Smith, The Sweeney, and Dig BMX – Alumni Ep. 1.

3. Tattoologist

Tattoologist covers fashion, culture, people, and brands.

It’s managed by Natalie Hanks – a “half Chinese, half English blogger and magazine editor who grew up in Hong Kong and is now living in London.” Hanks launched Tattoologist in 2009.

I love the simply beautiful art on this blog.

Favorites include Monday Randoms, Legs, Flowers, and Tattoo Artist: Sol Art.

4. Should I Tattoo?

Should I Tattoo? features advice on tattoo basics, ideas, mistakes, and removal.

The site is managed by Integrative Clinical Resources, whose medical director is Gregory Hall, a primary care physician in Cleveland.

According to the site, Hall looks at a number of things, including tattoos popularity, why women have passed men in tattoo adoption, and the health risks associated with tattoos and piercings.

Some interesting posts include Tattoo Regret, Tattoo Ink Color Choices, Tattoo Statistics, and It’s the Law: No Tattoos for Minors.

    • Toby Myer Tattoo Bali

      You are thinking of getting a tattoo in Bali as well? Great idea, Bali has become one of Asia’s top tattoo destinations.

      You will find many interesting and beautiful tattoo designs in Tobymyer Tattoo Bali, if you wish to have something associated with Bali, such as the Garuda, the Barong or the Rangda, or you can go for the more traditional Hindu deities.

      Many tattoo studios also offer piercing and piercing accessories. Getting a piercing in Bali is of course not as common as getting a tattoo, still you can get almost any part of your body pierced, if you desire to do so in Bali.


  1. Tattoo Xchange lets you be original. So original that we can take your creative vision further, to conception. Let US develop YOUR ideas. Feeling creative? We’ll work with you to design your own.


  2. It seems that the world of tattooing is very interesting. I would like to become one, but sometimes I am hesitant to choose in order to not regret it. I found this: that maybe serves to people who have changed their minds about what they want to tattoo.


  3. I love the way you lay out how a tattoo is about self expression. I also enjoyed the fact that you used many artists images and gave proper credit to them. It always seems like people are trying to take credit for your work online. Keep up the great work.


  4. Considering getting yourself inked?

    Ace Tattooz Studio & Tattoo Training Institute has been deemed as the Best Tattoo Studio in Mumbai by their colossal client base or rather fan base of 8000. In the past 6 years, this tattoo studio has created its very own benchmark in the tattoo industry by setting up a much-coveted work profile and shining reviews making them the Best Tattoo Studio in Mumbai.
