Last Saturday was like any other Saturday here at Allstar (or so we thought), both Ross and Paul were busy all day, 80's music pumping, customers having a laugh! Paul created a tattoo on a lovely man from Cork that has now caught the worlds attention and we could not be prouder!!! It has been reposted thousands of times, been featured in numerous online well known websites, along with tattoo forums and other social media sites!!! Here is the picture of the tattoo below! You can check out Paul's work, along with Ross's, on our Facebook page "ALLSTAR INK TATTOO" or on our Instagram page "ALLSTARTATTOO_IRELAND".

Hey all! So as some of you might have noticed, we are undergoing a complete make over at the moment. We started with the outside of the shop, which is completed. A lot of work has gone into this and we could not be happier with the end result.  All the signs are hand painted , even our fancy girl heads! We definitely will not be missed now! The inside is in progress at the moment and we do apologise for the disruption but it will be worth it once it is all done! We have a few surprises in store so we will post pictures once completed!
Christmas is only a few weeks away and we have vouchers available in shop, perfect gift for any occasion!!! 

Over and out, 
Allstar crew!

Liverpool FC Danny Agger star pays a visit!

Yesterday was a very exciting day here at Allstar! We were delighted to have Liverpool FC star Danny Agger visit us to get tattooed by our very own Ross Nagle. Danny is very passionate about tattoos and was delighted for Ross to be able to add to his collection. It was great to see the hype that developed around the streets of Limerick once word spread that Danny was inside with us. He made sure he took time out between tattoos to come out to say hello, sign autographs, and stand in for photos with his fans and customers of our shop. He was a pleasure to have with us and a true gentleman. Stay tuned.... you never know who could turn up next here at Allstar!!!!!

We are pleased to announce we have Damion Ross here with us for a quick trip March 25th and 26th. Damion works in Wooster Street and Invisible NYC. For an appointment with this extremely talented tattooist, email allstarink@gmail.com. They will fill up fast!

We have three artists returning to Allstar Tattoo this coming 10 and 11 of February and we are thrilled that they are all here together.


Mina is based in NYC and works in both Daredevil Tattoo and Fun City Tattoo in the Lower East side. She is an incredibly solid artist who creates stunning work for someone so young. She is definitely one to watch and most definitely someone we would highly recommend you book in with during her short visit. You won't be disappointed!

Check out Mina's work here.


Oliver Peck, owner of Elm Street Tattoo, Dallas, Texas, has been to Allstar Tattoo plenty of times over the years, so we are really looking forward to having such a familiar face back in the shop again. Oliver is incredible at traditional tattoos and specialises in incredibly detailed mini- tattoos, which isn't something you'd see every day. Oliver has a jam packed schedule but has found time to come visit, so get on it and book in!

Check out Oliver's work here.


Beau Brady from State of Grace Tattoo, San Jose, California is another shop regular who has taken time off to stop in our shop before he continues on his travels. Beau is kick ass at traditional, Japanese, you name it. Get in contact with us to book in with Beau, you will be well looked after.

Check out Beau's work here

We love the buzz (no pun intended) that comes with having so many great artists working at the same time.

Call us on +353(0)61 409439 or email us at allstarink@gmail.com for further info.


We are very excited to announce the arrival of one MATT ARRIOLA, Liberty Tattoo, Seattle, Washington this February. This is Matt's first trip to Ireland so we are delighted to say that he is tattooing here at Allstar Tattoo February 4, 5 and 6.

Matt is a genius when it comes to traditional tattoos, as well as Japanese inspired work, but is capable of anything. What ever you decide to get done will be sick. If you're into spider tattoos, he is the man for that as he specialises in bringing the weirdest, most imaginatively warped spiders to the masses.

If you want to check out his work, have a look here.

If you want to make an appointment, call 061409439 or mail allstarink@gmail.com
