The QG Tattoo Studio is an Industrial Experience in Chengdu, China

 - Mar 8, 2016
This example of tattoo studio design highlights the unique innovations currently taking place in the retail space in terms of designing self-care experiences for men, who have largely been left out.

Designed by ARCHETYPE Design Studio, the tattoo parlor in Chengdu almost resembles the hyper-masculine, industrial-inspired men's grooming salons that have popped up all over the world in the past two years.

The curious QG Tattoo Studio in Chengdu is a dark space characterized by its moody lighting and an eclectic collection of decorative items in the form of skateboards mounted on the walls, casual seating and a foosball table in the waiting area, a motorcycle and a colorful assortment of action figures. Each recreational touch adds to the space's atmosphere and extends the lifestyle experience of the brand.
