Very pleasant experience! Very welcoming and nice environment. Especially, props to the professionality of Cesar Magrones, he did my tattoo employing the best technique and making sure it was of high quality, and I couldn't be happier with the result. Positively impressed by this studio, definitely recommended! 10/10

We went there spontaneously in our vacation in Amsterdam and got an appointment for the next day. Ada did our tattoos and did an amazing work. The stuff is super nice and we felt super comfortable.

Hallo mede tattoo liefhebbers, ik ben al een keer of 9 keer getattoeerd in deze fantastische shop. Heb een hele sleeve van de eigenaar van de shop Cellio. Wat een Artiest is hij,luistert naar je ideeën en maakt in zijn stijl echt een kunstwerk! Ik heb met elke sessie de grooste lol gehad met Cellio. Ik heb niet alleen kunnen lachen met Cellio maar ook met de andere artiesten. Iedereen is geweldig niet alleen als artiest maar ook als mens allemaal goede energie. Na al die sessies word je gewoon vrienden ipv klant. Grazina dat is echt een powervrouw ze zorgt voor alles in de shop ,van afspraken maken tot info om de boel draaiende houden. Waar je ook lang mee kan kletsen en lachen. Ik heb mn tattoo shop gevonden en ga daarom ook nergens anders meer heen. Het zijn echt toppers en je tattoo's komen er geweldig uit te zien😍. Tot de volgende sessie!🤗🤗 Groeten Anthony.

I can't stress enough how FANTASTIC this place is! I've been searching high and low for a year to find the best place in Amsterdam to get inked, and I can proudly say, this is it!!! I want to personally thank Cèlio who hands down is absolutely incredible and such a lovely soul! The attention to detail, the personal aspect, professionalism, quality and incredibly genuine, very kind Artist not to forget owner, who went above and beyond for my touch up today. If you're coming to Amsterdam and your looking to get a work of art inked, I can't recommend this place enough. Seriously. I cannot wait to come back and start the next design with Cèlio!!!! Every single person at Motor ink is incredibly friendly and welcoming. Thank you for putting such a big smile on my face today. I absolutely love the work you did and extremely excited to return for a new piece!!!!! Thanks to the lovely team for making the environment such a wonderful vibe.
