About us

Good Times Ink is an open shop style studio located in the vibrant America Mura area between Namba and Shinsaibashi in central Osaka.
For consultations, you may book an appointment in advance, or feel free to just drop in anytime during our business hours between noon and 7 pm.
Most tattoos are by appointment, but if one of our artists is available when you visit, you can get your tattoo on the day you visit.
Our skilled artists have extensive experience in Japan and abroad in styles ranging from Japanese "irezumi," tribal, portrait, script, traditional to radical new school.


In addition to a chair and bed in our front booth, our studio has two private booths and an open booth. Waiting areas have comfortable antique sofas and a large screen TV.
Our artists collaborate with local designers to create original accessories and clothing items. The shop area features customed designed accessories and clothing items from up-and-coming local designers.

Rental booths

Tattoo artists can rent tattooing booths at GOOD TIMES INK for tattooing their own clients. Rental fee is 5,000 yen for 2 hours or 12,000 yen for all day (noon-7:00 pm). Please contact us to inquire about availability.

Sanitation and Hygiene

At Good Times Ink, we take sanitation and hygiene very seriously. We use disposable equipment wherever possible. No needles, ink, ink cups, tips, gloves or anything else coming in contact with body fluids are reused. New equipment is used for each client. Protective coverings are put on all surfaces touched by the artist and disposed of at the end of each session.

Reusable equipment is cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner, then disinfected in a medical autoclave to sterilze it completely.

*Our autoclave is inspected monthly.


We create original designs in any genre. Your tattoo will last a lifetime, we want to be sure you are satisfied with the design before you get inked.

*Don't hesitate to bring any artwork or photos of the design you have in mind.
