As the largest tattoo brand in Asia-Pacific, Celebrity Ink is taking tattooing from the underground to the mainstream.
This fresh, new way of thinking has positioned their studios in high traffic shopping centres, targeting a wide demographic and has seen them grow by 60% over the past two years, despite COVID. Modern, approachable and appealing, they’ve created the world’s first experiential tattoo studios, designed to bring tattoos to life and help clients express themselves the way they want!
You don’t need to come from the tattoo industry to own a Celebrity Ink studio. They offer all their franchise partners access to a dedicated training academy, built to ensure the ongoing training and development of artists. Their academy offers both online and face-to-face training options, allowing geographical reach. With a highly experienced head office team you will receive ongoing support to help your studio perform successfully and profitably. Celebrity Ink is all about taking things to a new level, challenging the status quo of the tattoo industry and doing things differently.
Celebrity Ink Background

This new approach ensures Celebrity Ink appeals to a wide range of demographics and guarantees high foot traffic.
