Chloe Besson's Made Tattoo and Mercantile in Berkeley

Chloe Besson is a seasoned multidisciplinary artist, and the tattoo is a serious business to her. She is a self-taught artist and earned her BFA from the University of Colorado in Boulder in 2015. She researched, read, watched, and listened to everything she could to get her hands on to learn about the art of ink.

Besson's tattoo shop is an exclusive warm alcove. The walls of the tattoo shop are light. The mellow music trumps over heavy metallic and retail space with art and also has some home goods.

Besson says that she came up with the idea out of frustration. There is discrimination, intimidation, and lack of care that exists in tattooing, especially in experiences. She says that she wanted to create a comfortable and homely space for the guests who would walk in for a tattoo. She also plans to host regular pop-ups, events, art shows, and so much more.
