Bloody Orange (Ototacibana Reina)
Human: Here you’ll find some very detailed, faded black/charcoal (but fully tintable), full body tattoos. At first glance it looks like the majority of them are called ‘Exotic,’ but look closely at the vendor pics, each one of these is different (the tattoo name will have a different number at the end). You can buy them in basic layers for an affordable price (called the “Smart Set”), or the regular version which comes on multiple clothing layers for flexible wear. There’s also an “Asian” design that’s quite unique. Definitely worth a visit.

The most unique tattoos here are the bright “Tribal” patterns, which come in a vivid fire, blue, lime green, red, purple or bronze tones that are pictured against a black skin (it’s not clear if black skin is part of the tattoo).

Dollyrock (Cherry Cheevers)

Comments: Tattoos are located primarily on the left and right outer walls of the store.
Inone (Moth Sewell)

The store’s very easy to navigate, thanks to signs below the vendor pics (i.e., at eye level) that describe each group of tats you see (i.e., hand tattoos, armband tattoos, facial tattoos, small leg tattoos, colored arm chest and back tattoos, colored full upperbody tattoos, etc.). Women’s tattoos are upstairs on the second floor.
Tattoo Corner (Tanne Goldblatt)
Neko: Several upper back tattoos here might interest Nekos, including a lion head, tiger head, “Bad Cat,” and “Mrs. Cat” cartoon kitty face for your shoulder blade.
Human: Mostly black, with a few color, primarily “small area” tattoos (shoulder blade, lower back, upper back, thigh, calf, etc.) including zodiac, tribal, floral, a tasmanian devil, and more. Some tattoos (particularly the full leg ones) have really lovely shading.
Comments: Group members get 50% off selected tattoos found in the lobby of this store. Walk around the corner into the clothing area, and you’ll find some nice tattoos on sale for half price.
Tiki Tattoo (Hatzfeld Runo)
Human: This is the perfect store if you’re looking for well-made Polynesian, Hawaiian, and Haida / tribal tattoos. Most are black, but you’ll also find two-color, full color, and smokey blue… in small, partial, and full body designs.
Together Inc. (Ikaria Daviau)
Neko: Several Neko tattoos await you here: Leopard (v1 or v2, depending on how much coverage you want) features nice two-tone leopard spots; Tigerskin (two-tone nicely done tiger stripes with paw prints); Il Gatto (wildly colored stripes, tintable to match your every look — even mix and match); Pick up a Trail (large paw prints from your ankle to your shoulder); and Tintable Pawprints (large cartoon-like paws that are color-changeable). All of these are a great way to get that “feral” look without the expense of a full skin, and/or if you just love the skin you’re in but wanna Neko it up a bit.
Human: Black, full color, henna, in small, partial and full body designs — many of which are worth a look. **Punished features red welts all over the body
DOLLARBIES: Two small black tattoos available for $1L include “Spank” (like a hand print) and “Eye of Horus” for the top of your back.
Tori-Wear (Tori Heart)
Neko: Mm… perhaps loosely translated as “Neko,” but there’s a cartoon “black Kitty” for your back (and around your belly button), and a full color tiger for your back.
Human: Mostly full color tattoos, mostly for the back, and mostly florals, as well as a tiger and a dragon.
Truth (Truth Hawks)
Human: A small selection of very beautiful, highly detailed upper body + arm tattoos, one in full color, the rest in black/charcoal
Comments: If the above slurl does not bring you to the tattoos, come into the left building, and up to the second floor, where the skins are sold.
Twisted / formerly What the Hell (Laura Boram)
Neko: Faded black leopard spots, full body.
Human: Mostly faded black, but a couple nice color tats… full body, upper body, and lower back.
Urban Dare (Craven Theas): Mens’ Tattoos location | Womens’ Tattoos location
Neko: Spotted or Striped full body tattoos, in two versions each, both of them easy to recolor to match your skin or clothes. Located in the same areas as Neko skins.
V Tattoo Store (Van Naimarc)
Neko: “Lyon Flower” on the womens’ side is a subtle blend of cheetah spots with a more traditional color tattoo… truly a work of art. “Paw Prints” are perfect little black kitteh paws meandering up your body.
Human: Full color or black, full body, partial, or one small spot… all of the tattoos here are crafted with great artistic detail and thought. Selections are too extensive to describe so you’re just going to have to come take a nice, long visit. This is by far my favorite tattoo store in SL.
Warudakumi (Taima Hathaway)
Human: This Japanese tattoo artist offers quite a nice assortment of full color, two-color, black, and faded black tattoos here; primarily upper body or arms, though there are a few lower leg, chest, and hip tats too.
What The Hell > see Twisted
Wicked Tattoos (Shanea Parx)
Neko: The “Kitty Kitty” design features black paw prints; “Leopard” is a full body’s worth of soft black leopard spots
Human: Mostly faded black, some atonal, upper and full body tattoos, ranging from flowers, tribals, and stars, to dragons, writing, and Chinese lettering.
Zanzo’s “Noir” Boutique (Theodore & Drusus DuCasse)
Human: This store’s tattoos come in a variety of sizes… from tiny “hip” marks, to lower belly, to upper body, and full leg… mostly in black/charcoal, with a couple in color.
Z.Inc. (Ziekling Bunnyhug)
Human: So far there are only a few tattoos here, but they’re quite lovely: Roses (full body), Love Birds, Cherry Blossoms, and Pirate (all three upper body); all full color.
