el templo tattoos was the first legal tattoo palour at the costa del sol. since 1989 it was opened and still is. belguim / dutch tattooist and wife who started of collecting 150 years of tattoo memorabilia and show it in their estudio. everybody who is interested can free have a look. Children under 16 are not allowed in by law.

IMPORTANT: In spain as in all of europe you must be able to see the tattoo lisence from townhall ( in Torremolinos only we have it) hanging so you can read it, then you also need the homologation from the healthdept. Tattooing is a profesion and has to be learned from a master tattooist. Tattoos do not have to be redone after some months, you may swim and be in the sun if you just use sunprotector. Tattoos can be taken the whole year around. They are not a little cheap souvenir to take in a hairdresser or fish tank shop where you also do masage and nails.

Tattoos has to be done in a profesional way so they may never cost less then 40 €, so proper and new material will be used for each customer.

Be free to come and have a look for yourself.

Hi Linda, just a note to thank you for a great repair of my Alba, (Scotland) thistle tattoo, I will email you a pic in a week or two. I received a great service from Linda and a very warm welcome from the El Templo Tatoo studio. Would definitely recommend for a first time tattoo or additional works of art.

I defiantly recommend this place, the staff are so friendly and welcoming. One man in particular, who pierced my boyfriends first piercing (Tracus), made him feel very comfortable. Everything was done very professional, clean and patiently. Great value for what you got. Would really recommend this man, great work!!!!

Amazing to see all the old tattoo equipment as well as meet the lovely people who run it. You could also get a special, unique tattoo if you wanted. I would recommend.
