North End’s Original Tattoo Parlor
Boston Barber & Tattoo Co. is the first and only tattoo shop in the Boston area, and we take an enormous amount of pride in being the only tattoo studio located in downtown Boston in over 50 years. We are also the first and only hybrid barber/tattoo shop in Massachusetts.

– You MUST be 18+ to get tattooed. A parent may NOT consent for you.

– All tattoo appointments require a $50, $100, or $250 deposit, depending on the appointment length. Deposits can be made with cash or card and can either be used towards the final cost of the tattoo, or be rolled over for multi-session pieces.
– Cancellations/rescheduling for appointments of two hours or less require a 24 hour notice. For appointments longer than 2 hours, we require a 48 hour notice of cancellation or rescheduling. No exceptions.
– We accept walk-ins daily on first come first serve basis. Due to high volume, we recommend booking an appointment to guarantee yourself a spot.
– We are a very busy shop and space is limited, so only one guest per client in each tattoo room.
– Unfortunately we do not provide piercing services, remove/change, or sell jewelry.
* If you are going to be running late and fail to call- you will be charged for your booked amount of time. Later than 20 mins; rescheduling and a new deposit will be needed (per artists discretion)
