User Guide: Tattoodo for Tattoo Collectors and Clients
Guides3 min Read


Learn how to make bookings, browse for inspiration, and connect with artists on Tattoodo.

Are you a "tattoo collector" or are you a "client"? Do you prefer "tattoo hoarder" or "tattoo aficionado"? A tattoo collector may curate pieces from different artists around the globe, constantly getting new tattoos one by one. Other people may only want one or two, while others hoard their pieces from only one tattooist they think is the best. Keep in mind: we're inclusive of everybody. There isn't a "one size fits all" way to get tattooed!

Regardless of what category you feel connected to, Tattoodo is the new way to book a tattoo for everyone.

Whether you have an artist in mind or want us to help you find one; Tattoodo makes the process for getting inspiration and booking a tattoo easier. You can seamlessly find local artists and studios or explore new locations for when you’re traveling. Once you’ve found the right artist, studio, and inspiration, you can communicate about appointments. Plus, you’ll be able to securely send deposit payments beforehand.

You’ll know the what, when, where, and how of your appointment before you ever set foot inside a shop.

Visit the Explore tab and search/save your favorite images.

Making a Booking on Tattoodo: Once you’ve found your favorite tattoos, artists, or studios, it’s time to make a booking for your next appointment. As a client, you have two options for making a booking on the Book tab in app.

Fill out a brief or directly book an artist.

1) Tattoo brief: For when you want Tattoodo to help you find an artist in your area or next travel destination. You fill out a brief with location, date, placement, size, budget, and image references. Make sure to be realistic and up front about the price, size, and detail of your tattoo. The more information, the better.

Your request will then be sent out to artists that will contact you about your tattoo and work with you to set up an appointment.

Fill out the brief for an Open booking.

2) Direct booking: When you’ve found an artist that you know you want to create your next tattoo, you can visit their profile and directly submit a request to their profile. You’ll then be able to securely message with the artist and even pay deposit requests and accept digital calendar invites (same with Open bookings once a conversation has started).

Or you can visit one of your “saved” artists profile directly and click on “Request Consultation” to fill out a form for that specific artist.
