Iron & Ink, the largest tattoo shop chain in Europe headquartered in Copenhagen, just opened its first U.S. location on the iconic Melrose Avenue.
Iron & Ink’s mission is to bring Nordic Cool to Los Angeles. The space is an exclusive cozy, clean and minimalistic shop that brings luxury and Scandinavian design to American consumers.
In Europe, Iron & Ink has several shops and a reputation for having celebrity clientele including athletes, actors, and influential customers, as well as treating all clients with an A-List experience.
The shop was founded by two Danish tattoo entrepreneurs- Hawaro Juul and and Rasmus Cort Hansen. Hawaro has been leading the US expansion while Rasmus has been spearheading the new Copenhagen location.
The motto for Iron & Ink is “when only the best is good enough” and the shop prides itself on creating quality tattoos, providing great service and giving the customers the best possible experience when getting inked. They’ll even deny customers who request tattoos the shop isn’t comfortable with (Think: Aaron Carter’s recent fact tat.)
The shops hand-picked tattoo artists have already worked with big name talent including Chris Brown, Drake, Odell Beckham and Messi on custom ink.
They also recently held an opening VIP party where celebrities including musician Ash Minor, influencer Kendall Schmidt, and dancer Ashley Everett were tattooed on site! Check out their ink on IG @ironinktattoo.la.
