Mr RazzoukTattooing is an art the Razzouk family introduced to Palestine centuries ago.  Bringing it with them from Egypt to Jerusalem when my great grandfather moved here for trade, this art has been in the family for 700 hundred years.

Our ancestors used tattoos to mark Christian Copts with a small cross on the inside of the wrist to grant them access to churches.  Those without it would have difficulty entering the church; therefore, and from a very young age (sometimes even a few months old) Christians would tattoo their children with the cross identifying them as Copts.

My grandfather Yacoub Razzouk taught my father Anton Razzouk the art of tattoos. My father is now passing that legacy on to me.

Today we continue this family tradition offering tattoos to visitors to the Old City of Jerusalem.  We look forward to serving you.
