About Us


Our Studio is located at 9B Main Street, Bray, Co. Wicklow (upstairs unit inbetween Frank Doyle Butchers and Spencers Bookmakers and opposite Lifestyle Sports). The studio boasts a main tattooing and piercing studio area with another room dedicated to tattoo laser removal. We strongly recommend making a booking for your tattoo. Our piercer is here every Tuesday and Saturday for walk-in piercings, and piercing can be arranged by appointment for other days of the week. We are open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm.




Anna O’Donnell is the owner of Nine Lives tattooing and piercing and has been managing it for the past six year’s. During her late teens early twenties she studied fine art (Sculpture and printmaking) and got her degree in 1986, Life as a fine artist wasn’t her thing.


She always wanted a tattoo but never found any of the designs relevant, back then it was always sailing ships, red hearts with daggers and black panthers.


Eventually she heard of a shop where they would do your own design. Suddenly tattooing became much more interesting. Finally after a lot more custom stuff a shop owner called Wayne Morris showed her the basics because he liked her designs. After many adventures she has found a style of work she likes.


Her hobbies are Photography, drawing and airbrushing.
