Got a tattoo on my ribs, Hannah made sure I was very comfortable despite being exposed and in an awkward position. I love my new tattoo and she's an incredible artist!
Professional interactions with clients, beautiful art from each tattoo artist, and a comfy/bright interior..not intimidating at all! I got my first tattoo here and am coming back for more :)
The tattoo studio was founded in 1995 and is among the best body piercing and tattoo studios in Cambridge, MA. The tattoo studio is ranked among the best thanks to their six tattoo artists who do artworks ranging from classical American to traditional Japanese. They have two body piercers who use highest quality implant grade jewelry obtainable from The Jewelry Gallery (sister company to Chameleon). Chameleon Tattoo Studio takes appointments on any day except for Saturday where they accept walk-ins on a first-come-first-served basis.
I've been going to Mike for several of my tattoos. The whole place is super professional and clean, but without being super intimidating. Everyone that works there is super approachable! Prices are good and so is the ink, I recommend to all my friends.
Went in only expecting to schedule an appointment, wanted to get something to kiss goodbye to a crappy year, but they were able to help me right then. (I'm sure a bigger art piece would have taken more planning, but mine was more straightforward.) Very happy with the outcome, and even more so with the staff, from being greeted to the final care instructions you get on the way out I never felt condescension or that I was wasting his time (which being Very left brained, I have felt from the artistics in the past :/) Next time I want to make a mark I'll be heading back. (for anyone who cares I got pi with a decimal place for each year I've been around, I know it stretches forever)

Erik has got over 25 years of tattoo artistry in different parts of the world specializing in American and Japanese tattoos designs. Other artists who work with Erik include Brain Hemming (MassArt graduate with BFA in Illustration and was awarded Best Tattoo Artist in Boston by Boston Magazine in 2016) and Bill Byers among others. The team of tattooists has a combined tattooing experience of 75 years.
Finally bit the bullet and received my first tattoo from Erik. He made me feel comfortable and asked questions to make sure I was getting exactly what I wanted. The entire shop has such a cool vibe and was extremely clean. Now I can’t wait for my second one!
Was here last week to get work done by Brian Hemming. I've been going to him for over a year now and am always blown away by his work. The shop is spotless and has lots of great flash and artwork. Easy to get to location in Oak Square with lots of free street parking. Will be back soon to get more work done.
Regeneration tattoo is among the best tattoo studios in Allston, MA. The tattoo studio has professional tattooists who work to get the best-desired tattoo that suits a client. They are Edwin Marquez, Frankie Mejja, Seve Fournier and Matt Sylar. All the artists work independently & maintain their own work schedules hence, a client has to visit the shop in person for a free consultation and to book an appointment with an artist of choice. The studio has won awards such as Boston’s Best Tattoo Shop in the Improper Bostonian 2014 and 2009 Weekly Dig’s Dig This Award Winner.
I came here on a walk-in to get a forearm tattoo I had been planning for awhile. They were able to accommodate me immediately and had me in the chair within 15 minutes. I had Edwin Marquez (fantastic) as my artist and everything was done well and in a perfectly clean environment. Highly recommend as a tattoo parlor and will come again for more.
Shop full of talented artists. Very friendly and knowledgeable. I have been tattooed many times by Edwin but wouldn't hesitate to work with anyone else in the shop in the future.
Stingray Body Art Studio is among the best choice for tattoos and piercing in Allston, MA. The tattoo studio offers services such as custom tattoos, piercing, permanent makeup, laser tattoo removal and walk-in tattoo services and is done by some of Boston’s best tattoo artists. Small and simple tattoos are defined by the time they take to draw and are done on a walk-in basis on Saturdays only on a first-come-first-served basis. Custom tattoos are complex and time-consuming and hence the need to book an appointment by consulting (in person) with the desired artist.
Yesterday was my first experience at this shop, from start to finish it was excellent, very relaxed and upbeat, beautiful and clean shop. I got my tongue pierced by Brad, it was quite obvious his experience and professionalism, but his personality is awesome. I personally don’t get nervous when getting pierced or tattooed but if I did have any nerves He would have completely eased them. I wish I had gotten the names of the other staff members there to give them a shout out too. Awesome experience gorgeous unique jewelry it was definitely worth the trip and travel
I got a tattoo from Katie Nowicki a few weeks ago at Stingray and I’m absolutely thrilled with the result. It was my second tattoo; it was a bit detailed and on my ribs, so I was a little apprehensive, but Katie was amazing at making sure it looked beautiful, the placement was right, and she took breaks every once in a while to make sure I wasn’t in too much pain. The tat was very reasonably priced as well! I had a great experience and I’ll definitely be returning!
