Forbidden Art Tattoos is rated 4.9 out of 5 stars, based on 47 reviews!
Went there for a commemorative tat to honor my late husband, and felt the need to have it done RIGHT AWAY. Staff there was most accomodating despite some minor issues on my part. Once resolved, was so happy with their work. Absolute gentlemen, lovely tatttoo, can't recommend them highly enough. Will definitely make them my NUMBER ONE go to tat artiists! You guys are the best.
Monster art work!
Great experience had a small minor hick up but the owner immediately corrected the mistake made it right and exceeded my expectations I would recommend this tattoo shop to anyone looking for a great tattoo Josh did my tattoo very knowledgeable and a great artist the atmosphere was laid-back and comfortable and great cleanliness The owner and the other artist continually came to check to make sure I was doing good and comfortable did a three hour session probably going to do a lot more ink there.
Josh gave me what I wanted, quickly and as painlessly as he could. I came in for Hello Kitty 's face, and turns out he's really into cartoons... the perfect artist for my simple, perfect tattoo. Highly recommend
The staff was very professional and friendly. They are true artists who take pride in their work. I will only go to these guys and will bring my friends here.
Best tattoo ive ever had and very affordable
In and out in less than 30 minutes for 2 tattoos. Great work and virtually pain free
Came in with friends for matching tattoos over Essence Fest weekend. We had more fun in the shop with their crew than most of the touristy destinations we paid for on our trip. Oh, and the tattoos came out great too.
Came to New Orleans for the Essences Music Festival. At 1:00 my friends and I decided to go get tattoos and piercings. We walked in and Blair was very welcoming! She helped us to pick out tattoos and was very patient with helping us pick out font styles while also easing our nerves. The shop was very clean and the small tattoos that we got we were in and out in 20 minutes! I would highly recommend this place!!
Great energy. I will be back.
Very professional shop oozing with talent. The Italian dude that runs the place is a class act.
Tee was the man! I went in to get new septum jewelry and my ears pierced. The environment is really comfortable and laid back, everyone is super friendly and welcoming. Tee was very attentive and made sure that I was totally happy with the placement of the holes before piercing. Would definitely go back again!

this place is great!! I wanted to get my first ever tattoo while in Nola and I'm so glad I went here. Danny is THE MAN!! he was very patient with me and totally made me feel at ease going through the whole process. Highly recommend this place, especially Danny. You will not be disappointed.
Danny is a great guy and a very caring artist. I went in for a small, simple piece on my foot and he spent plenty of time making sure it was perfect. Excellent lines, great service. Highly recommended.
Great place. Never seen a tat shop so clean in my life. Would trust anyone getting art or piercing here, bieng in medical field I am picky. All of the artist are wonderful with amazing work and personality, And screwy louie has some bad ass old school fire ass ink. In the heart of NOLA with many sites to see. Dont miss your chance. You want to make sure yiur piercing or tattoo are done with artistic ability and sanitary and this is the first ive seen in this are that meet all of this.
Screwie Louie done a cover up for my daughter. He did such amazing job that you can't tell it was a cover up! I believe he is amazing artist!!!
Came in on A Sunday night with my BFF to get small, matching tattoos and so glad we went here! Super accommodating and chill. Prices are a lil bit high but they got us in right away! I'll definitely be going back for future ink.
The best #tattoo shop ever in new Orleans hands down...
Came in for a first time tattoo and service was good, tattoo was great and walked out truly satisfied. Definitely a good shop.
I absolutely loved the experience in the shop. It took a few weeks to get the design I had in mind right, but the fact that Dannie did take the time to get what I wanted shows a certain depth of professionalism that is a must, especially for this field of work. Once I got there, everyone there were very welcoming, and even if the tattoo took twice as long as anticipated, they stuck with me through it, and I couldn't be happier with the result. If I ever want a tattoo again, this is where I'll go, hands down.
When your looking for some thing that no one else can give you like customer service,good times,no hassle,go see SCREWIE LOUIE at FORBIDDEN ART ,you won't be disapointed,,,,,
Great experience here getting piercing. Real quick, painless, it looks just as I expected, and for a good price. Most importantly, my piercer, Tee, was very friendly and professional at the same time.
Love my tat, guys r amazing,
Joe and screwie are awesome. Joe made sure my friend and I were completely satisfied with the art before they tatted us. They both had a great sense of humor. Of course the tattoos came out better than expected. We will be back! Keep up the good work guys!!
I went to Forbidden Art last Sunday and I got some more ink from Rain, who's amazing! I had contacted her a couple weeks prior with my idea (since we live in VA) and the end was result was exactly what I wanted. This was my 2nd time in NOLA, my 2nd visit to the shop, and my 4th tattoo from Rain. If I go to NOLA again, you can bet I'll be back.
My bf also got some work done for the 2nd time and he was very pleased as well...thank you Danny! We highly recommend Forbidden Art if you're looking for a place to get your ink done!
I was in vacation in NOLA and wanted to get my first tattoo. While riding a streetcar, I saw Forbidden Art. I did my research and called to see if an appointment was necessary. Not only was I able to come right in, but Ryan took very good care of me. I was so nervous and the experience was much better than I ever thought it could have been. Everyone in the shop made sure I was at ease and they did a great job talking me through the whole experience. I highly recommend Forbidden Art!!!
Had a tat done this trip to NOLA and ran into this small shop. They did awesome work on my ankle and will be visiting them next time I'm in town for more of their ink.
I got my first tattoo at Forbidden Art while on vacation in New Orleans. Trey was welcoming and professional. We hit it off right away. I felt comfortable throughout the experience, feeling like I was in good hands. He did a great job on my tattoo, the lines were tight, bold and solid, just the way I wanted. It looks fantastic. I am so glad I got the work done there. I recommend Trey without reservation. I am a very happy customer and will love this tattoo for the rest of my life!
I have lived in nola for a year now. I previously lived in florida and have been tattooed by the same person for the better part of 10 years. I looked at atleast 9 shops here and never felt right. One night my fiancee and i decided to get new ink and we were by here. It turned out to be the best decision ive made. Ive had 2 sessions so far and am blown away at how my piece is looking. Cant wait to finish my tshirt here
Got helped with great custerner service!
My bf and I went to NOLA for our 1 year anniversary in Sept 2014 and ended spending a significant amount of time at Forbidden Art. Rain added to one of my tattoos and did 2 more on my back...over 3 days lol. My bf got a tattoo on his foot and some other ink touched up on his sleeve. Everyone was super nice and we had a great time. We're going back next month and will definitely be stopping by for another tattoo!
I've been coming here for Mardi Gras and tattoos for 20 years. This is the same tattoo shop with the same owners and artists consistently. They are such great people they're like family.
So cool! I was a virgin and they made me so comfortable. The tattoo I got is super detailed and the girl nailed it!
Coming here was the absolute best experience I've ever had at a tattoo shop!!!Trey is the best tattoo artist hands down!!! He, Danny and Tee, were very professional and considerate throughout the whole experience. They all made me feel at ease and I instantly knew I had come to the right place. This was my fourth tattoo that I was to get and i came as a walk-in with some ideas swirling around in my head but nothing concrete. Immediately Tee and Danny were so helpful. They patiently took the time to talk me through my ideas and guide me in the right direction for my lovely butterflies and swirl tat. Trey's creativity and wonderful eye for art is apparent. He is a genius and masterful at his artwork!! I will be back!
Great experience! My husband and I wanted tattoos to celebrate our tenth anniversary. Really relaxed vibe and not at all hoity toity like a lot of other shops. Before I'd even finished explaining the idea he had started drawing. I like that he made mine more feminine while still keeping true to the design. Also had a light touch which my skin appreciated. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
This was a great experience! Cane and Tee were a riot and had us laughing even as we were getting stabbed with needles. The shop is very chill, laidback, and fun! Their pricing was fair and they treated us with the highest level of respect. Will go here next time I need a piercing.
Had a great experience here getting piercings with my sister-in-law. Our piercer, Tee, was skilled and precise but most importantly-- hilarious and fun. Would absolutely go back again
Loved my tattoo! It was quick and painless! Loved the fact that my artist wasn't heavy handed! Will be going back to Dallas satisfied!
Great people working there. Painless lobe piercing. Cheap and such a fun environment. Will definitely go back!
Shout out to T, Trey and Cane. The ultimate bros.
Great experience! LOVED my artist, Danny. Getting my first tattoo, I was a little nervous, but his cool, friendly demeanor did a lot to ease my nerves. The session was quick and painless, and I am in love with my new ink. Danny did a great job! Will definitely be back for my next tattoo.
They were solo awesome about to lock up and yet of course they stayed open for VIP. LOVE YALL AND THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER AGAIN. They treated me with respect and took there time was teaching and learning that even more. It nice to see and encounter business that still cater to customers. GET YOUR ART DONE THERE EVEN LIL WAYNE KNOWS THAT. It's an art for sure its not tampering with your body its adding architecture to yourself your true home. FAITH! Be you. I will be back for more can't wait! Until the next time I'm out.
Had a great experience there. Got a tattoo on my side. Rib tattoos hurt like hell but Dylan was very patient.
I was so nervous but he helped me relax and he got done in what seemed like no time at all.
It took me 5 yrs to make it back to NOLA to get that special piece I wanted. Well worth the wait.
Whatcha know a California guy living in NOLA knew how to pull off this Texas girls favorite flower, a beautiful very well done blue bonnet.
These guys were awesome!! Got me in and out real quick, did a great job, and for a fair price. Highly recommend.
I came as a walk in!
It was reasonably priced. I just wanted a Fluer de lis. The owner was very accommodating to my husband while I got my tattoo, they sat and chatted and he gave him a drink.
My tattoo came out just they way I wanted. My artist was friendly. He taught me some local slang. :)
