Chameleon Tattoo & Body Piercing is the first and finest fully-licensed tattoo and body piercing shop in Cambridge, MA, located right in the heart of Harvard Square.
Established in 1995, Chameleon features five tattoo artists and two body piercers. Our tattoo artists' styles range from traditional Japanese to classic Americana, old school, realistic black and grey, and everything in between. Our piercers use only the highest quality implant grade jewelry available.
Our sister store, The Jewelry Gallery, was established in 1978 and offers the largest selection of high quality body jewelry in the area, with an exceptional variety of options for piercings.
If you would like to make a tattoo appointment, call during shop hours. We take tattoo appointments every day except Saturday, which is reserved for first-come-first-served walk-ins.


All Piercing services are done by APPOINTMENT ONLY. You can book an appointment over the phone or in person.  We take appointments up to one week from the day of booking.  We are unable to offer jewelry changes on Saturdays.
