To support the ever-growing inking trend, Oslo’s tattoo parlors are amping up their game. Here are the ones that should capture your attention.

Attitude Tattoo Studio refers to themselves as “Norway’s largest and most well known Tattoo Studio”. A look at their clientele – which comprises Norwegian celebrity rappers, TV hosts, and rock band members – certainly supports that claim. The studio is helmed by Electric Linda, an artist who’s won more than 50 awards in tattoo competitions globally and participated in a Norwegian TV show about tattoos.

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
