Warlock's Tattoo | Raleigh, North Carolina


Every city has its own powerhouse tattoo shop. There’s always that one shop that that’s been around for so long that it’s a household name; that shop that has a solid reputation, even in surrounding cities. In every region there are a select few shops which support six or more artists and often still have people waiting in line to get tattooed. That’s the shop and reputation which every shop aspires to be and strives to compete with. The standard that competitors strive to meet in Raleigh, NC goes by the name of Warlocks Tattoo Inc.

There’s a lot to be said about tradition and those who came before us in the tattoo industry. New tattoo shops in this country, both good and bad, are sprouting up like unchecked weeds. The artists who have endured a few decades or more have seen countless shops come and go like a short-lived trend. Watching would be competitors rise and fall has become a way of life for Byron Wallace, owner of Warlocks Tattoo Inc.

Got my first tattoo from warlocks in 1998. Ill keep going back. Just a small one today but the experience was great.

Warlock's is a great place to get tattoos. Byron the owner has decades of award winning experience and the personality to put anyone at ease while discussing and consulting on a permanent body decoration. Even if he does not do your tattoo he will pair you up with one of his other artists who will be a great fit either personally or strength of style and techniques. Prices are more than competitive and great value for the quality of work and the satisfaction of the experience! Would highly recommend whether a first tattoo or looking for a great artist to continue your tattoo journey!

I cannot say enough good things about this shop. I’ve been three separate times and worked with two different artists on some tattoos. My first one needed a small touch up that they did at no charge and my others have been great! Ernie is very talented and is dedicated to doing it right. He changed some parts of my last ones to make it look better and I’m so glad I trusted his art as it looks amazing. Ashlei is very kind and also pays close attention to detail. Prices are done by hour and are fair for the work they put out. My lifetime pieces are clean and clear and I didn’t mind the prices as they are competitive with other shops and are fair for the quality. Great shops for first-timers as well as returners.

Contacted the shop via email and received a response within the hour. They gave me a call to discuss prices and availability. We were visiting Raleigh for the weekend and they got us in the next day! Front desk staff are extremely friendly!!! Our tattoo artist Brian was great! He was great with making last minute changes and our tattoos came out looking amazing! Very satisfied with the overall establishment and will definitely be going back. 👍

Went to see Ashlie for a tattoo on my forearm. After a brief consultation and a couple of design changes, she was very patient and professional throughout the entire process, and did an incredible job with tons of detail. Couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Will definitely be going back for any other work in the future.
