Welcome to Murrieta’s premier body art studio where we have been doing what we love since 2006. We offer tattoo and body piercing services, all done in private studios by our friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff. We are a custom tattoo shop and have artists who specialize in color, black and gray, realism, script/lettering, portraiture, bio-mechanical and Japanese. We are also dealers of fine body jewelry from Anatometal, NeoMetal, Glasswear Studios, LeRoi, BVLA and Tawapa to name a few. Our resident body piercer will share her knowledge on all available jewelry types and help you find a piece you will love. After your service is complete you can browse our aftercare product lines from H2Ocean and Afterinked to determine what product is right for you so you can protect your investment from the start. All of us here at Essential Ink are committed to bringing you the most awesome customer service and body art experience you can imagine. All major credit cards accepted and walk-ins are always welcome. We look forward to having you come by the shop and help you design the piece you have always dreamed of.

Walk-ins are always welcome; however, we require all of our scheduled appointments and walk-in clients consult with an artist and allow for drawing time before getting inked. We require a 10% (typically $20-$30) Non- Refundable deposit to schedule your tattoo session and it will go toward the price of your tattoo. Deposits are made to ensure our artists that you are committed to your tattoo and to reserve the artist’s time and services. If you need to reschedule your appointment we ask that you give us 48 hours notice. We will hold your deposit and apply it to your next appointment date. Because deposits are non-refundable, we recommend you check out our “What you need to know” page.

The price of your tattoo will vary depending on its size, detail and placement on your body. We ask that you be as descriptive as possible when working with your artist and allow for sufficient drawing time.

We accept Visa, MasterCard,

Discover, and American Express

Gift cards available.
