Zulu in temple bar is private i think, there is a place on dorset st and they tattoo you right at the window i passed by many times to see people getting tattooed. you dont want everyone to see your PAIN!!!

ok in my opinion.... the bast tattoo parlour is the one were you find a tattooist that likes doin the stuff you want done... as for cleanliness, so long as you stick to any of the main ones you should be fine... everywhere has good and bad word... that goes for dentists to piercers... we all have our opinions... just so long as you go to one that is at least well known and dont be afraid to look around when you go in to talk about it... although i seriously doubt anywhere in dublin city that gets any kind of decent business is unclean and doesnt clave their stuff....
imo....
i havent heard any bad news bout dragon, celestial, zulu, or snakebite....
hope that helps a lil....?

I've had both of my tattoos done in dragon ,very clean and they make sure your getting exactly what you want. my brother had his done in both dragon and zulu and says zulu is the better of the 2.

hope this helps.

Without sounding like a div, if u're willing to travel to Bray go to 'Atattooed' & see either Paul or Badger.... they've done a ton of work on me, my mates & my brothers. Highly recommended in my books..

Zulu is probably one of the best in town, but Dublin Art Tattoo (used to be Karen Russell's Sacred Art) in temple Bar is very good for black-work and Polynesian. It really all depends on what kind of work you want done!

For my money, nobody in Dublin does good nu-school stuff, so I'm waiting to go elsewhere. If I had my way I'd get stuff done by Grime in San Francisco.

I am having one done by Debbie at the moment in Snakebite and can only recommend the studio and the artist, I get all my piercings done there too.
