JULY 2016 NEWS
July was a busy one! But Aren't they all? Really...it was a busy lead up to the Consult Day on July 9th, which was another huge success!
First and foremost, welcome to Dan and Parker! We now have 8 permanent artists and we couldn't be happier to have these guys as part of the Progression Family!
To make room for everyone, we had to turn our second waiting room into a tattoo room and had to create space in our main reception area to seat everyone's customers! This was a huge makeover for the shop and we are very excited about the new look!
All artists were stoked with their consults and this has seen them book well into the rest of the year. We will be having another Consult Day on Saturday December 3rd, so please get in touch if you wish to grab a spot to discuss being tattooed early next year!
We released some new Merch at the Consult Day, there's limited stock still available. You can order online from the Store or pop into the shop.
We had a few Guest Artists come to visit - Cam Dozen from NSW. Then Migelly Shaw & Chris Strik came together from Brisbane for a week! Always a pleasure guys, thank you for coming!
