Horror Vacui Tattoo Parlour is located in a historic building in the heart of Bologna.
In a city with already several prestigious tattoo studios, we wanted to create a welcoming environment to further promote and spread the culture of tattooing.
After crossing an internal courtyard, you will enter in a hall where you can find images and subjects from various cultures...and also a relax area. A second room hosts the workstations where three artists can work at the same time, in comfort and privacy.
In addition to the work of five artists from Bologna, Jey, Mati, Paolo, Gio and Dino, we want to offer our customers an intense calendar of collaborations with Italian and international tattoo artists, emerging and established, whom we have met around the world during travels and tattoo conventions. In this way we want to explore and make known all the tattoo styles, western and oriental, from the old school European and American tattoo, to the Samoan, Borneo and Pacific tribal, to the Japanese, as we have seen them through the work of the most significant tattooers that we know of.
We aim to develop a conscious and refined clientele, aware of the iconographies and able to choose the subjects that we will create for you.
The studio is open every day, from Monday to Saturday, 11am to 7pm; we recommend you to come to the opening in the morning, as early as 11am, to discuss your tattoo and the price with your tattoo artist.
When you make an appointment with one of our tattooists or guest artists, you may be asked for a deposit to be agreed according to the size of the requested tattoo. Talk to us at the shop to find out the prices of tattoos.
