Our tattoo styles

Ready to dive into the fascinating world of tattoo styles? At Nordic Tattoo, our tattoo artists master a variety of techniques and styles to bring your individual ideas to life. From traditional to modern, from delicate lines to vibrant watercolor effects - we are experts in all common areas of tattoo art, but are also happy to adapt to your special ideas. In the following sections, you will learn more about the special features and history of common tattoo styles. Get inspired and decide which style suits you best!


Our focus is on traditional, neo-traditional, Japanese, Polynesian, watercolor, fine line, blackwork, mandala, manga, old school and portraits. However, our tattoo artists are open to special requests and guest tattoo artists regularly bring their own special style to our studio. The best thing to do is just ask - we are guaranteed to find a suitable solution!

Even if you would like to know the exact cost, we can only give you a reliable estimate after talking to you. The cost of a tattoo depends heavily on the desired style, the amount of time required and the colors used.

All of our farms meet the new European standard and are compliant with the REACH regulation and are vegan. At Nordic Tattoo Cologne you have a 3-month guarantee on a touch-up and refresh of the colors should something not go as you expected.

It's very simple - use our contact form, come by, call us or write to us on Instagram. If your schedule allows, we are also happy to arrange spontaneous appointments. For larger motifs, however, you should contact us 1-2 weeks in advance.

For larger motifs, we require a deposit of between 50 and 100 euros from you. You can reschedule your appointment up to 24 hours in advance, after which we will keep the deposit as a cancellation fee. To prevent this from happening, we ask you to keep your booked appointments or cancel them in good time.

We tattoo everyone over 18. We make no exceptions for those under 18.

Come well-rested, sober and full. This will not only put you in a good mood, but will also increase your body's pain tolerance, so you can get through the session easily.

Of course. However, this is not always possible. With fresh or thick scars, problems can arise. The best thing to do is come and see us and get advice without obligation. We will find a solution!

At Nordic Tattoo, the health and safety of our clients is our top priority. If you have any questions about hygiene in our studio, do not hesitate to contact us. We are always ready to address your concerns and provide you with a safe and pleasant tattoo experience.
