About Us


Welcome to Cincinnati Tattoo & Piercing, Cincinnati's original tattoo and piercing studio. We have been offering precision tattoos and body piercing to art enthusiasts across the queen city and beyond since we first opened our doors in 1966. 
Our studio is impeccably clean, hygienic, and open to people of all walks of life and persuasions. Having a design prepared is not required. Stop by with your vision in mind and one of our artists can bring your design to life. Our objective is to work with you to create the ideal design to suit your needs. 
No matter what your style—whether small or large tattoos, bold colors or black and gray, tribal, Japanese, traditional, religious, lettering, or portraits—our experienced and diverse staff can accommodate your unique specifications. We try to cater to walk in tattoos every day of the week. Walk ins are handled on a first come, first served basis. To insure a unique piece of art on you, we book custom or large-scale work appointments in person with a consultation with one of our artists and a deposit. Piercings are handled as walk ins, and no appointments are necessary.

We love the art form and respect the history and integrity of tattoo. We take pride in our 50+ years of service. Stop in anytime and speak to our friendly staff.

Nailed it!

"Just wanted to say thanks to Jeremy. My husband came in for a tattoo today and it turned out KICKA**!!! Not only is the artwork great but your nailed to concept. Thank you so much! I can't wait to come in and get one myself."

- Jennifer Sohn

Good Experience

"I had such a good experience here tonight. I will most likely come here again for any future piercings. The price is reasonable and the atmosphere is friendly. Everyone goes out of their way to make you comfortable."

Revisiting customer

“I have had several piercings and two tattoos from here. All very satisfactory and healed beautifully. I live in St. Louis now and am happy to stop in when I visit Cincinnati. I had a cover up that I felt was hopeless done 10 years ago. Thanks to Cincinnati Tattoo it is as bright and vibrant as the day I got it. I can't say anything but great things about this shop.”

— Jamie Weston

They fixed my tattoo!

"Awesome tattoo shop. I got my Superman logo tattoo touched up by them since the guy I knew who first did the tattoo messed it up and Cincinnati Tattoo made it look fantastic!"
