The mass social migration toward the web has left us with infinite ways to connect, and a million things to talk about. There are apps to find the best place to eat, the best barber, the best veterinarian, and now, the best tattoo.

Yup, to find the best tattoo artist, or to display your own, now all you need to do is download the Inkedly App, from Danilo Ferraiolo.

Inkedly takes a social and aesthetic approach to Social Networking, allowing users to like photos, follow other accounts, repost photos, and build an extensive profile of their own.

If you’re squeaky clean and wouldn’t dream of getting a tattoo, there’s probably no need to download.

On the other hand, if you’re pondering your next tattoo or hoping to link up with other enthusiasts, Inkedly may be the perfect app for you.

Inkedly iPhone App Review

Inkedly iPhone App Review


The app has a bit of a lengthy login process, requiring an email and password, re-entry of the information, and then creation of a username.

Once you’re into the app, you can navigate between five primary sections: ‘home’, ‘explore’, ‘camera’, ‘notification’, and ‘profile’. Construction and implementation of Inkedly is definitely in the vein of Instagram, with navigation toward the bottom of the app and photo displays at the core of exploration and interaction.

You can follow fellow users, repost your favorites, take photos from within the app and much more, simply by poking around in the app for a few minutes. We’d like to see a guest login option to incentivize more user growth as the app continues to evolve.

Concept and Functionality:

The app is a bit weighty at over 53MB, so be sure to download this one over Wi-Fi.

Once you have it though, it runs smoothly, and navigation is relatively seamless as you move from section to section and explore the app.

The concept will definitely resonate with a certain demographic, so if tattoos are your thing, or you’re a fan of tattoo art, you owe it to yourself to check out Inkedly.

Also, if you’re considering getting your first tattoo but want to take your time perusing through options and styles, this app may be the perfect tool for you to get started.

Overall Value:

The app is free and over time, will definitely develop a substantial user base. If it becomes somewhat of a ‘Yelp’ for tattoo artists, encouraging more reviews and comments on established tattoo parlors, it could grow even further.

In general, be sure to keep your eye on this app in coming months.

IQRInkedly requires iOS 8.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this article.
