Inkblot Studio is a painting and tattooing studio located on Main Street in Ames, Iowa. Started in 2012, the goal has always been to provide an artistic studio with roots in the vibrant Ames Downtown community but informed by a cosmopolitan aesthetic.

We employ three full time artists who focus on a wide range of styles and techniques. Take some time to peruse our portfolios and find the artist best suited to the piece you have in mind. Feel free to contact the shop with any questions.
