Archetype Dermigraphic Studio is all about promoting a high ethical standard and a sense of community and brotherhood for those who are in the tattoo industry for the right reasons. Archetype is not only a tattoo studio, but a place for artists of all mediums to glean knowledge from one another and inspire each other to branch out and tap into new veins of thought. Art is for sharing not only imagery, but reaches to the gut and root of human experience. We invite all those who love art. Whether you produce it, like to look at it, or love to wear it, Archetype is the place where it all intersects. Please join us!

Deposits are now required for all appointments, including same-day walk-ins.

Deposits are nonrefundable, but the deposit that you put down will come off the final price of your tattoo.

Deposits hold your appointment, start the artwork, and show us that you are serious about getting tattooed.

Thank you for your business, Albuquerque!

I’m somewhat new to town and when I put the word out that I wanted fresh ink, I heard nothing but positive things about the crew at Archetype. I am very pleased with the work I got done here. Eric listened to my vision and worked with me on creating exactly what I wanted. Beautiful people, great vibes, wonderful work; not to mention very clean, sanitary space. I’d definitely recommend them, and I’ll absolutely be back from more work in the future! Thanks a bunch! Sierra Hullinger
Absolutely one of the best tattoo parlors I’ve been to here in NM. I had to schedule an appt almost last minute for my brothers graduation present. Carlos Cordova was our artist and he did matching half sleeves in under 7 hours and they look amazing. I will refer everyone who asked to them and to Carlos, and can not wait to get started on my next half sleeve. Thank you for your quality customer service, tattoos and cleanliness.

I’ve had a chance to meet and get to know these guys and I can’t say enough good things about them. I’ve been tattooing for over a decade and can say that when I look for someone to tattoo me I look for the qualities I see in this shop. They’re professional, clean, and extremely talented. When looking for a place to get your next tattoo go to where other artists would go. We know great when we see it. Lou Gomes
