Witch City Ink is the very best place to get a unique tattoo in historic Salem, Massachusetts! We have 6 talented artists who specialize in a variety of styles, and we are open 7 days a week from 12-8PM. We always welcome walk-ins when artists have availability, but if you are working on a tight schedule or visiting Salem for a short time, we highly recommend booking a set date and time when possible. Call the shop at 978-744-9393 or come by in person to schedule an appointment!


If you are traveling to Salem this month, we welcome you to inquire about walk-in availability in person at the shop as close as possible to when we open at noon to get on the wait list for that day. IF YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT SCHEDULED THIS MONTH please note that your artist has blocked off a set amount of time for your appointment based on the design that was discussed when the appointment was booked. This means that last-minute changes in design, size, or style cannot always be accommodated during our busiest month, unless previously communicated to & approved by your artist well in advance. PLEASE ALLOW EXTRA TRAVEL TIME for entering into the city, navigating within the city, and ESPECIALLY for the extended time it takes to find parking. We recommend using public transportation or a ride that can drop you off whenever possible.

There is so much to see and do in Salem this time of year, and we love seeing visitors from all over the world. We just want everyone to know what to expect to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. If you have any questions please call 978-744-9393, and leave a voicemail if we are not able to answer. Thank you & Happy October!


Our shop opened in the summer of 2008 to fulfill a need for a high-quality tattoo studio in downtown Salem, MA. Staffed entirely by friendly and professional artists with decades of combined experience, Witch City Ink is one of the largest and most beautiful studios in New England. Specializing in custom tattooing, our award-winning artists can design and tattoo any idea that you may have. We can also utilize our expertise to cover, fix, or re-do old tattoos to turn them into something that you are proud to show off.

Here at Witch City Ink, we have a selective team of experienced custom tattoo artists who are here to work with you every day of the week: Natan Alexander, K Lenore, Jaesun Duggan, Larry Allen, &  Kayleigh Kerr. For larger custom projects & all cover-ups we generally prefer to meet with clients for a preliminary drawing consultation, and that way we can discuss your ideas and preferences to create a design just for you. The custom artwork will then be ready to view on the day of your tattoo appointment, and we can make any changes necessary for you at that time. You are welcome to get started with booking this free consultation by coming to the shop to chat with us, or you can always call, send a contact form inquiry, or email us directly at witchcityink@gmail.com!

Our job is to make you look your best – we are Salem’s first & finest custom tattoo studio. We take a tremendous amount of pride in the work we produce and work hard to exceed your expectations, whether it be a large full custom tattoo or a simple design. We believe that ink is art, and you can do your part to make the world a more beautiful place by letting us help you decorate your unique canvas.

In Massachusetts you must be a minimum of 18 years old to be tattooed, regardless of parental consent.
