The weather must be nicer here than in Brisbane or something because 3 awesome dudes fled the city to come to Adelaide to work with us! We had Heath Crowe come down and Ben Rorke from Westside here at the end of September.  The shop was buzzing with 8 artists working at once!  And Mitch Love is here with us now!

Fergus Simms is coming over from Melbourne from Thursday November 12 - Saturday November 14.  For bookings, email him at  View his work here

Do you want to be tattooed in 2016?

In preparation for the new year, we are hosting a Progression Consultation & Open Day

On Saturday December 12, we will be holding a Consultation & Open Day.  All artists will be on deck taking consultations at their stations for bookings in the new year.

Our friends from A Mothers Milk will be here with coffee and cakes available to purchase.

The shop will be open to the public, so if you've never been in and want to come and check it out or bring a friend, you're more than welcome to mosey on down.  There will be prints & merch for sale, portfolios for you to look at and we will be available to answer any questions you might have!  

We are now taking bookings for consultations, so if you are looking to be tattooed in the new year and wish to secure a time to chat with one of our artists for any tattoo - big or small, please get in touch with us at or call us on 82719000.

***For those interested in being tattooed by Mark Stewart, he is already completely booked out for the consult day and his books are closed.  All further enquiries for Mark will be added to a wait list and contacted when he re-opens his books in early 2016. Thank you for your understanding***
