Denmark has a long tradition in the art of ink and is the country where the oldest functioning tattoo shop in the world was founded at the beginning of the 20th century. Nowadays, several tattoo shops all over the country keep this tradition alive with some of the world’s most talented artists designing mind-blowing tattoos.

Miss Roxy

Miss Roxy or Helle, as she was known before entering the tattoo scene back in the 1970s, is one of the most experienced tattoo artists in Denmark. Her career started around 40 years ago when Tattoo Svend, one of the most renowned tattoo studios at the time, welcomed her to his team and helped her learn the art of ink. That was only the beginning. After seven years by Svend’s side Helle became ‘Miss Roxy’ and set off to explore the world and further develop her skills in tattooing. She ended up in Hawaii where she opened her own boutique. Luckily for the Danes, after some years she felt homesick and returned to Denmark opening her own tattoo studio in Copenhagen. The award-winning tattoo artist likes drawing realistic images, but she wouldn’t say no to more abstract Dali-style designs, too.

Royal Tattoo

Royal Tattoo opened its doors for the first time in 1983. Henning Jorgensen, the founder of the famous tattoo studio, started his career in the tattoo scene when he was 18 years old. Throughout the years he gained the title of “Tattooist of the Year” three times as well as many other awards. Surrounded by a great team, Jorgensen still has one of the most noteworthy tattoo shops in Denmark and tattoo fans from all over the world travel to Helsingør to get inked by his talented hands.

Art of Ink

The first Art of Ink tattoo studio opened in Odense in 2009 only to be followed a year later by another in Aarhus. The Art of Ink family consists of several talented tattoo artists who specialise in different tattoo styles and always strive to create the best design. Each client’s personal style and needs are always prioritised and play a significant role during the process. Both studios are centrally located, surrounded by hip coffee shops and cool boutiques, so it’s easy to be spotted.
