To ensure we can help everyone just the way they deserve we have created a set of rules:

  • We work by appointment only. You can always email (info@inkstitution.nl) to see if we have a spot available for you. When emailing about your idea, please add a clear description, placement, and size. A clear picture of the body part where you want the get tattoo as we need to get a good impression of your body flow and some reference material so we can het an idea of what you like in a tattoo.
  • Want to book an appointment for a touch-up of your tattoo? Or book a checkup for your piercing? Please send us an email with pictures of your piercing/tattoo first to see if we can help you out at a distance.
  • Be on time. If you are too late, we maybe have to reschedule your appointment.

We wish you a pleasant experience at Inkstitution!


Inkstitution has been located in the always buzzing Rotterdam since 1998 and stands for quality and personal attention.

We think a tattoo or piercing is something personal and therefore we would like to offer everyone personal attention. You can always visit us without obligation for inspiration, advice and explanation. Our team is happy to give you more information about the process of designing the tattoo, the possibilities, the best placement for your idea and the styles in which our artists work.

We are open from Tuesday until Saturday from 12:00 to 19:00.

Rate Information

We use a starting rate of EUR 80,-, this is for all smaller work. When booking an appointment, we ask for a deposit. We charge EUR 50,- as a deposit for a smaller tattoo and EUR 150,- for day sessions or projects with multiple sessions.

The deposit will be deducted from the price of your last session. The deposit is non-refundable, in the event of a ‘no show’ or late cancellation it will be forfeited. For more information, see the conditions on your deposit card. We use a unit price for everything between the starting rate and major projects. This means that a fixed price is agreed in advance with the tattoo artist concerned. This price depends on the design, size, level of detail, placement and complexity.

You can’t pay with card with us, but there are two ATMs within walking distance of the shop.
