ATTENTION: As of Saturday, August 15th 2015, Brilliance Tattoo is entirely APPOINTMENT ONLY.

This means we no longer tattoo anyone on a walk-in basis, and you will need to read the booking info and contact an artist and make an appointment for all tattoos in the future. We appreciate your understanding as we narrow our field to offer more customized, personal service, and thank everyone who has walked in! 


On Leap day, Monday February 29th, Brilliance will be hosting micro-tat monday; a flash-style walk in day where our artists will be designing original flash around the rhyming theme of micro-tats. Designs will include:

  • Micro-bats
  • Micro-cats
  • Micro-rats
  • Micro-hats
  • Micro-habitats
  • Micro-brats
  • Micro-gnats
  • Micro-wombats
  • Micro-acrobats
  • and Micro-more!

Micro-tats will be all be under palm-sized and will range from $60-150. All spots are taken on a first come, first served basis until we are booked till 6. We hope you can join us in making our first flash day a success!

Located in the heart of Boston University, our light and bright studio features a team of experienced, specialized artists dedicated to creating the best tattoo work possible. We are located at 957 Commonwealth Ave in Boston, at the Pleasant St Stop on the Green (B) Line. All our artists work by appointment only at this time and unfortunately can not offer same-day walk-ins.


bright, private rooms

You're in enough pain during a tattoo. We try to make your surroundings as pleasant as possible.

Personal Attention

All appointments require an in-person consultation to get to know you and your vision. We prefer to set aside time for you without the bustle of walk-in traffic.
