Information and unbiased reviews on the best tattoo shops, and tattoo artists here in the Philippines

July 2012

Joel Rocafort is a popular tattoo artist and is known for his on the spot cover up tattoos. He's the main man of Mafioso Ink. He has won 2x in Dutdutan's cover up category contests and a few portraits and tattoo of the year awards. He has been in the business for years and is indeed one of the best. Last weekend, he inked my wife (cover up) and the outcome was superb. I will post pics after the break. For the meantime, check some of his awesome works!

Chris Garcia is a World renowned tattoo artist. He is a proud Pinoy tattoo artist who has inked lots of celebrities including Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray, Brandon Vera, as well as all the members of Boys Like Girls. He also inked Jamir, Raimund Marasigan, Karl Roy & Don Allado. I hope he visits any of the tattoo shops in the philippines someday.

Check out his Official Website for you to see some of his works!

I must say that Emao Clemen was born with a charcoal in his hand. He used to be an illustrator and started his tattoo career when asked by a friend if he could tattoo him. He used a home-made rotary machine and next is history. He never expected to become a pro tattoo artist, destiny seemed to have had other plans. He's now working for P&P Tattoo (one of the best tattoo shops in the Philippines) but prior to joining this team, he had worked for  Rellik and Darkside.

Celebrities such as Ryan, Gabby Eigenmann, Gab Valenciano, and Bubbles Paraiso, are some of  his clients.

I had a free tattoo from him for winning P&P Tattoo's Instagram Promo! He he has exceeded my expectations for the tattoo looks real! For sure i will get another tattoo from him very soon!

I had a tattoo here last month @ my neck and honestly i am not really happy about it. It's too pricey for me. My cousin also had her tattoo (worth 18K) which is just 5X5 (hibiscus with tribal) while mine is (6K). Even though we have cash cash pinoy vouchers (8x 888=worth 2K tattoo), i still felt that we didn't save money or get what we have bargained for. The design is simple and we should have went to P&P. Anyway, thanks to Allan and Ding Fernandez for our tattoos!
