Bali has so much to offer when it comes to experience. It is a paradise. You can do so many activities in Bali, from water activities like surfing or jet skiing to thrill-seeking pursuits like the famed Ubud swing. Apart from tourist attractions and its colorful culture, Bali has also become a hotspot for people looking to be spontaneous and get tattooed.


There are many reasons for people that willingly get “hurt” and get inked. Some people get a tattoo to remember the important events of their lives. Others use tattoos to show pride, pleasure and sadness. While others have a simple reason just to follow the fashion trend. These days, tattoos have become a fashion trend, especially in Bali.


It is not hard to find Bali Tattoo Studios here, especially on the south coast like Kuta, Legian and Seminyak. However, choosing the best Bali Tattoo Studios is a little bit difficult, and you don’t want to end up with a little regret for the rest of your life, right? The professionalism, skills and experience of the artists is one thing, but the quality and cleanliness of the Bali Tattoo Studios are also important.


So, why Bali? Getting a tattoo in Bali is significantly cheaper than any other country in the world. Although it is relatively affordable, you can still get some high-quality tattoos. However is it really safe to get your tattoo done in Bali? The answer is yes and no. You need to do a research and find a reputable Bali Tattoo Studios before you get inked. Don’t just walk down the main street and walk into any Bali Tattoo Studios


Not all Bali Tattoo Studios are clean, as is the case almost everywhere else in the world. You need to be extra careful when getting your tattoos done. The worst case scenario, if you happen to visit a Bali Tattoo Studios that do not practice a certain level of hygiene and safety (like reused needles), you might actually contact HIV.


How do you know whether the Bali Tattoo Studios you want to use are safe?  How can you be so sure to avoid risks and go to get inked somewhere safe? We will share a few rules you should follow if you want to get a tattoo and want it done right. One thing, don’t do it yourself and don’t let an amateur do your tattoos. The most important thing is you need to find a reputable Bali Tattoo Studios with licensed artists. However, if you want to do it you have to check with the local or state health department. Here are the steps you need to follow in order to find a solid Bali Tattoo Studios:

  1. Only go to a studio where all employees are properly trained.
  2. Make sure your tattoo artist wears new disposable gloves to minimize your risk of contamination. And that they throw them in the trash between tattooing sessions.
  3. Check that the artist is using needles from sealed containers, and that the pigment trays are new.
  4. Be sure the Bali Tattoo Studios you want to go to have a sterilization machine and use it to clean equipment that is too expensive to throw away.
  5. Don’t be afraid to ask how the employees sterilize the counter-tops, tables, and chairs. They should be using a bleach-based disinfectant. If the shop isn’t clean, get out, because blood can travel and contaminate all different types of surfaces.
  6. Ask where the inks come from. Some inks might contain metals and solvents the local food and drug administration doesn’t regulate.
  7. Don’t let alcohol cloud your judgement. Getting a tattoo is exciting, but it’s also forever. Think long and hard, and when you do it make sure safety is top-most in your mind.


One of the best Bali Tattoo Studios in Seminyak is Draw Ink Tattoo. Draw Ink Tattoo was established in August 2019. Relatively new, yes, but we have international class artists, friendly staff and (the most important) guaranteed equipment made in the USA, Germany and Australia. We also highly maintained the studio’s hygiene, cleanliness and customer convenience. We also located close to shopping centers, beaches and clubs, between Seminyak and Sunset Road (in front of The Trans Resort Bali).


Now that you know the one of the best Bali Tattoo Studios in Seminyak, you have to know when is the best time to get a tattoo in Bali. Well, any season is fine to get a tattoo, however we would recommend you to get your tattoo done a day or two before your holiday ends because you can’t go swimming after getting inked and it’s best not to sit in the sun for too long after having it done.


We wouldn’t recommend getting henna tattoos done in Bali as standards are not as good as they would be in other parts of the world. Also, black henna can make you very sick, even causing organ damage, you don’t want that, right?
