Get tatted in Barcelona
Share This Article:
Barcelona is well-known for its multicultural scene, where open-mindedness and laid-backness are everything the inner city is made of. Where freedom of expression and liberalism go, art follows, and in this specific case I mean art under the form of tattooing. Statistics show that one every three people in Barca has a tat of some sort. In fact, the Ciudad Condal is an international hub for artists from all over the world and has become the tattooing capital of Europe for this exact reason: all the most talented people trek overseas to tattoo amongst the flowers and colours of the city and the great architecture of Gaudi. In fact, the tattoo scene in Barcelona is thriving and boasts a reputation matching that of the most trendsetting cities, like NYC. The reason might be deep-rooted within the love for art being genuinely innate in the city walls, as well as the fact that the more famous tattoo artists come to Barcelona, more people will want a tattoo, and demand will rise in a positive cycle. In fact, tattoo related travel and tourism is common in the Spanish city and it is thought to have brought cultural and financial value. Most of the artists and the clientele are from outside of the country rather than being originally from Spain. I visited Addicted Tattoo where my friend got tatted by an Italian, Rosario, for example. This multicultural mix-match isn’t uncommon.
