Couldn't ask for a better experience every time I go here! Ellie has done an amazing job with my piercings and Iris gave me a beautiful tattoo - I loved how patient she was as I was very specific with the placement! 110% recommend.

The ink collective is amazing and has super friendly staff. They actually provide lots of different services, not only tattoos. There is also lots of free parking on the old blackrock road is well which is handy. I got 2 tattoos on Saturday the 9th April and it was an enjoyable experience and was faster than I thought. I especially enjoyed the funky music.

I had a wonderful experience at The Ink Collective! Booked was really straight forward and they were so accommodating. Iris, my artist, was so friendly and incredibly talented. Such a wonderful atmosphere inside too! Will definitely be returning in the future 🥰
