Getting inked is probably something you think of doing when you travel abroad. But why not support a local artist? Here’s a simple guide to where you can get a tattoo in Cairo:
Located in 2 Ismail Mohammed Tower in Zamalek, Nowhere Land is one of the most popular parlors in Cairo. They do walk-ins as well as scheduled appointments by calling 01069545736.
They’ve also opened a new branch in Helopolis at 17 ibn Sina Street. You can call 01274127956 for more info.
Located in Maadi, Graffinks is one of the very first tattoo and body piercing studios to open in Cairo. The studio is quite exclusive and appointments need to be set in order to get inked.

Located at 10 Micheal Lotfallah St in Zamalek, The Ink Shop has grown quite a bit since it opened by two wonderfully talented women, Alia Fadel and Mony Helal. They are both young artists with a passion for individuality and freedom of expression.
