Norbert Halasz

Owner of Dublin Ink.

In 1998, Norbi gave up his degree in Mechanical Engineering to start tattooing in his home town Miskolc, Hungary. “Tattooing wasn’t as popular as it is now so it was tricky starting off” in 2003 he opened his first tattoo studio called Skin Workshop Tattoo, 10 years later he sold the shop and started a new adventure in Dublin, Ireland.

Here, he began working in Dublin Ink as a long term guest. Soon after Norbi was asked if he wanted to buy the studio, without hesitation he accepted and took control of the studio in 2012, from there he devoted all of his time and skill turning Dublin Ink into one of Irelands most well pleased, premium tattoo studios.

Norbi is a proud father and a massive Star Wars fan, but only the old ones! He says the new ones are shit he has a full bio mechanical Star Wars inspired sleeve done by Markus Lenhard (@luxaltera)



Isnard Barbosa

This fine gentleman was born in Brazil and grew up in Portugal, Isnard could paint before he could walk. Starting out he was huge into spray painting and graffiti, decorating coffee shop’s, home businesses etc. He grew up learning about the history of renaissance paintings and painters, favouring Caravaggio. He was overwhelmed by their composition and soon began his 8 years of learning how to bring this style into tattooing. He also gets most of his inspiration from Alphonse Mucha. Two years after he set sail and made Dublin Ink his new home in 2013, becoming easily one of the most popular artists in Dublin. His style pretty much based on realistic black and grey and neo traditional. He’s truly is an amazing talent. On a scale of 1 to awesome Isnard is the shit! Pardon my french.



Bruno Santos

Born in Araxá, Brazil and grew up in Belo Horizonte. Like many others, Bruno started off with graffiti, mostly portraits and learning more about facial structure and composition. Bruno took his inspiration from most renaissance painters, in particular Raphael. Bruno decided early on to start a career in football and played professionally with Cruzeiro for a year. After coming to a conclusion he decided he would leave his football team and pursue his career for Art. Bruno began tattooing at the age of 20 in 2008. He accepted to fly over and do a guest spot in Dublin Ink last year in April and soon after began working here full time in September. We loved him that much we couldn’t let him go :’)



Kevin McNamara

From Ireland, Kevin started out in Dublin Ink 4 years ago, after studying animation and illustration in college in Dublin City, he’s tattooing a little over 2 and a half years. He has a style favouring more bold and colourful design’s, trying to keep his work as graphic as possible, drawing his inspirations from movies, TV and comic books and is currently looking to bring more of these influences to his work.

Kev is our Dublin Ink comic book nerd. Tattoo artist by day, but superhero at heart.



Wagner Basei

Born in Brazil with Italian and German heritage, Wagner grew up admiring his uncle who owned a tattoo studio right outside his house, he would ask his uncle to make stencils on his arm and he would go to school and show them off to his friends. He’s still a big show off! He started his apprenticeship  in 2004 and worked for 4 years in a studio called Verani Tattoo before moving over to Ireland in 2009. He’s a regular guest artist in II Forestiero Tattoo Collective in Serdegna, Italy and Everlong Tattoo Collective in Bonn, Germany.

Wagner loves his video games, BMX, birdwatching and his cats. He specialises in dot work, geometric, Maori, Polynesian and celtic. An awesome talent and a pleasure to have working in the studio.



Feca Lanfredi

Feca is our studio’s sweetheart. She has blossomed to easily the most recognisable name in tattoo artists in Ireland, starting out in her home town Chapecó, Brazil. She likes all styles but mostly specialises in abstract,neotraditional and dot work. At the start of 2015 she began her new position here in Dublin Ink, and rapidly grew a huge base of dedicated clients. “I’m awesome at nothing but I like tattoos”

Feca has a crazy infatuation with cats, rats and pretty much anything fluffy, she spends most of her time playing with her two rats ‘kitty’ and ‘cat’ and the occasional marathon of Adventure Time.

Always happy, cheerful and loves to LOL. We’re proud to have this massive talent on our team.
