We believe in providing a holistic experience based on mutual trust and respect. Whether it’s your first tattoo or latest piece, Temple founder Li Manman and her passionate team of skilled artists are here to guide you.
1) Free Consultation
Tattoos are permanent and personal — we offer free, no-strings consultations and price quotes to ensure you’re comfortable throughout the entire process.
Whether you’ve got a specific design or are seeking fresh inspiration, we are happy to answer any questions and offer expert advice — contact us to start fleshing out your ideas!
2) Deposit and Booking
Once you’ve decided what you want, we will arrange a deposit for the design. Bookings are flexible — our Chengdu studio is open 6 days a week from 1pm, while our team regularly travels for residencies at our partnership studio S.INK in Shanghai.
Manman will connect you with one of our skilled artists, who will create your custom design with the elements and specifications you desire. We will do a skin transfer to help make any adjustments to details, size, color and placement and find what looks best on your body.
4) Getting your tattoo
Prepare your mind and body for the big day — eat well, rest well, then lay back and enjoy. We offer clean, comfortable and discreet service, so you can relax under the needle and feel confident during the process.
Congratulations — that’s a wrap! We have special gift bags with everything you need for a healthy heal, including skin cream and info on how to clean and protect your new tattoo.
Join our WeChat group to meet friends, connect with creative folk from the Chengdu underground and stay updated on all things Temple.
Getting your tattoo is just one part of the experience — every customer is a member of the Temple family. We love to stay in touch with our friends around the world, while our door is always open to say hello!
Every tattoo and piercing is eligible for Temple Points (1000RMB = 1000 Temple Points), which can be redeemed for special treats from our Temple Box — including monthly flashes, merch, discounts and vouchers with our partners.
