We always have several guests throughout the summer splash out on a new body ink piece during their holiday in Ibiza. Some look fantastic… others not so much. So, based on local recommendations from tattoo aficionados, we’ve pulled together the best Ibiza tattoo studios. Most will require booking in advance, but that’s probably a good thing – an impromptu tattoo after a 24-hour Ibiza party stretch is rarely a good idea!
Inkadelic in Ibiza Town
Neil Ahern of Inkadelic is world-renowned for his tattoo work and often quoted as the best in Ibiza. His client list boasts a number of A-list celebrities including David Morales and Naomi Campbell, however Neil treats every client with equal importance. The studio itself is a mecca for all things tattoo culture, a shop of oddities, packed with collectibles Neil has picked up while tattooing around the globe. Inkadelic is located in Plaça de la Constitució, the square just by Dalt Vila’s impressive main entrance.
