Welcome to Tattoo HQ your number one source for tattoo inspiration, education, and advice. We created this tattoo blog to share our passion for ink and help others on their tattoo journeys.

Our Story

Tattoo HQ was founded in 2018 by Bella Jiang.

After graduating in 2010 from Xi’an Academy of Fine Arts, one of the top art colleges in China, Bella worked as a designer at a game company until 2014. She started her tattooing career in 2015 and opened her private studio in Hangzhou 3 years later.

The journey has been challenging. In this country, tattoo artists are often seen as a marginalized group and their work is misunderstood. Most of Bella’s college classmates settled into .com jobs or civil service roles. Bella instead opted to take the more difficult path of tattooing, not for money or fame, but to deliver on a promise she made to herself as a little girl.
