Reach Out

We'd love to hear from you

Seattle’s premier fine art tattoo shop, open to everyone, since 2012

Our mission is to bring you the highest quality tattoo experience possible

Clean

We take safety seriously. Our artists use Eternal Ink, a hypoallergenic, non toxic, vegan friendly ink of the highest quality. We follow strict cleanliness and sterilization procedures to keep you safe and happy at all times.

Classy

Creating timeless artwork is the result of us taking our work and clients seriously. We know your tattoo will be a part of you from now on. Our aim is to make every part of your experience a safe, comfortable and enjoyable one.

Friendly

Tattoo shops can sometimes be intimidating. Not ours. With a well-lit, comfortable space and enthusiastic, welcoming artists, Seattle Ink and Oil has earned a reputation for being a friendly and fun place to get a tattoo.

Talented

Our goal is to collaborate with clients to create more than a tattoo — we want you to own a piece of body art that you can proudly wear for life. Check out our portfolios to get a sense of each artist’s style, and book your artist today!

“The owner, Justin, is a true artist in so many senses of the word. He not only tattoos, but is also a painter and collaborator. We came in with few ideas for our tattoos and Justin took great effort to put us at ease, walk us through an ideation process and help us settle on a creative direction that we were overjoyed with. It ended up being better than either of us envisioned. We can't recommend him highly enough!”

Stacey S.

“You can't get a cooler environment - the big windows, loft styling, and of course the view of the Space Needle can't be beat. It's literally the kind of place you just want to hang out all day long...”

Merrick N.

“Justin is extremely talented, creative, artistic, and amazing with color and fading. I have never gotten so many compliments on anything as I have gotten with my tattoo. I recommend him to all my friends and all the strangers who ask me where I got my work done!”

Stacey L.

“When I came in and saw the initial sketch, I was blown away. Justin took my idea and made it better than I could have even imagined. I still can't believe his ability to take a tattoo needle and make a beautiful painting with it. Holy hell, what an amazing artist!”

Jason R.

“Let me start by saying that this is the classiest and most friendly tattoo shop that I have ever seen. Justin (owner/artist) is one of the nicest and most professional people you will meet. Every time I've gone in, I've been blown away by the work done. I was so happy with the first sleeve that I started a sleeve on my other arm as well!”

We provide a first class tattoo experience

Ask one of us about art nights, painting classes, charity events, and art showings, there’s usually something going on.
