Create a brief describing the tattoo you want done. We’ll send that brief to artists & studios in your area, consult with them about the design, size, and cost, and book your next tattoo!
There are thousands of artists & studios that you can browse through around the world. Filter the results by your location and style, scroll through their portfolio, and hit the book button to schedule an appointment.
Book either directly with an artist or upload your idea and let Tattoodo find an artist that matches your brief. Read the Tattoodo User Guide for more information.
We advise that you only submit one project brief at a time, but that is on a case by case status. For example, you could submit one for your area and one for a city that you are traveling towards.
First, you will want to narrow down your style, followed by searching that style in the location you want to get your tattoo. Or fill out an tattoo project and we’ll connect you with relevant artists.
By visiting that artist's profile page, you can directly submit a consultation request to that specific artist.
You can directly cancel a booking in-app or inform the artist through messages. Note: artists can and will request deposits for appointments which may be forfeited in the case of a cancellation.
