The story of Arttu starts with the two co-founders, Julia Cohen and Bruno Lima, deciding to get a tattoo. Brazilians who had recently arrived in Aveiro, Portugal, Julia was in search of her tenth tattoo and Bruno wanted to get his first. The problem was they didn’t really know anyone in the new city, so they realized that finding a tattoo artist was not going to be an easy task.
With no references, no sites and social networks with not very reliable information, there was a clear need for a platform that could facilitate the process. This is how Arttu was born, with the aim of making everything simpler and more streamlined. A space where customers can conveniently and safely find a quality tattoo artist for that special tattoo they are looking for.
What’s more, after visiting dozens of studios and speaking with tattoo artists from all over the world, Arttu realized that it needed to do more for these artists. By centralizing tasks and providing functionalities that facilitate day-by-day management, we enable tattoo artists to devote more time to their art of tattooing.
