Looking to get inked? There’s no need to leave Cairo if you want to find a talented tattoo artist. Tattoos are means of self-expression and creativity, plus they can look totally cool! From dainty little doodles to full sleeves, there’s nowhere more personal to display artwork than on your body. 

When getting something permanent on your skin, it’s best to go somewhere you can trust. Otherwise, you might end up filled with regret (or an infection). With tattoos recently becoming more popular in Egypt, there are a lot of new tattoo parlours to consider. So we’ve decided to make it easy for you and picked some of Cairo’s most reputable tattoo artists. Here’s where to go if you want to get tatted up.
