Warsaw has so many tattoo studios it was very hard to pin down just a few. By visiting each one, soaking up the atmosphere and speaking to the artists and owners, we managed to come up with 15 studios (in no particular order) we love for different reasons. A tattoo studio in our opinion should be able to offer something more, something different, something unique and we believe we have found them. Click on studio names to be directed to their FB page.
Founded in 2008 by Mixer and Aldona, they like to introduce themselves as a „hardcore tattooing team”. A combination of a tattooing woman and a hardcore drummer. Mixer went to Aldona because he wanted to get a tattoo … Aldona hit Mixer because she wanted to tattoo someone. One can say it’s the irony of fate, but from the beginning of their friendship, they knew that they both wanted to slightly turn the world upside down by creating something unconventional!
This place isn’t a tattoo factory but rather a place where they cherish the process of creativity. Their climatic, inspiring and even a little bit loony interior reflects that and seems to be organized in such a way as to inspire free expression. This explosive combination of a free spirit, loony interior and the originality of projects created here make Szery Tattoo an easy pick when choosing our favorite tattoo studios in Warsaw.
Ink Fetish from the moment you enter has an obvious sterile atmosphere and look with 3 artists representing very diverse styles of work.

We hear he is also pretty good at laser removal just in case you split from your partner and want to remove their name from your skin ?
Next up is Paweł Szubski who’s preferred style often takes on a dark atmosphere and black humor decorated with a solidly drawn contour and often a detailed touch. Finally but not least is Daniel Gembus who is a certified painter and draftsman of the Łódź Academy of Fine Arts, who for over half a year has been successfully practicing the art of tattooing human skin under the watchful eye of his classmates. He likes illustrative and comic projects. Not located in the city center but definitely worth the extra mile to feed your fetish
