About Artful Ink Studio
ARTFUL INK BALI was created in 2012 on the very same street that it is still on, 10 years later.
Artful ink’s godfather @paulo33martino came to bali on a surfing holiday and could see that the tattoo industry on the island was many years behind the rest of the world. Hygiene and safety practises, the materials being used (imitation inks) and of course customer service, were a few of the shortcomings that clearly stood out.
Introduce @kiara.artfulink into the equation, with her hospitality background and the formula was set.
Armed with over a decade (at that stage) of tattoo shop knowledge, and a hospitality genius, it was a no brainer.
ARTFUL INK BALI took no time at all in becoming THE shop on Bali.
ARTFUL INK is, and always will be about tattooing and its traditions. While there are a LOT of shops out there now who are in the industry because it sounds “cool” or a dozen other phoney reasons, we are ALL about the industry, the art and preserving its traditions.
