hazeykaysee said: What advice would you give to someone for their first tattoo? :)

Be really sure of what you want, your tattoo doesn’t necessarily need to be meaningful but make sure you’re happy to live with it for the rest of your life.

Have a good think about placement. Does your current or future employer allow visible tattoos? Do you want to be able to choose if and when other people see your tattoo?

Do your research on tattoo artists. Don’t just shop around for the best quote, as they say ‘Good tattoo’s aren’t cheap and cheap tattoos aren’t good.’ Go through portfolios and choose an artist with a style you like. Then when you’ve chosen your artist, listen to what they have to say. Sometimes a design you may have your heart set on may not translate well into a tattoo.

Hope this has helped a bit :)

The guys are hoping to travel to the states one day. Its sounding like there’s a few folk from the states that should come on a holiday to Australia to visit us ;)

Thankyou very much :) Your blog is pretty cool too :)

itsnippy said: Where would you recommend a small meaningful tattoo? Of course it's my body and everything I was just wondering what you would recommend because of pain/being able to hide it etc.

Depends how small you’re talking and what the design is really. In saying that though most people who get a small, very meaningful tattoo will go for the wrist, inner upper arm, back of the neck or behind the ear. It really comes down to your preference and whether the design you’ve chosen will fit that area well. Take into consideration whether you want to be able to choose if and when people can see it and what sort of employment you currently have or will have in the future. Hope this has helped a bit. :)

Anonymous said: Hiya looking for a dream catcher tattoo and kinda have a design in mind would it cost anything for you to design one for me??? I live locally just haven't had the time to come in aha...

Hi, As a general rule either Lou or Mark will draw up your tattoo design on the day you’re booked in to be tattooed. They’re both really quick at drawing and that way any changes you wish to make can be made then. You’re welcome to come in for a consult to discuss what elements you’d like in your dream catcher tattoo. Consults are done from 9:30am to 10:00am from Tues to Sat. Cheers.

No worries. Glad you love our tattoos :) Do you have any ideas of what you want? Also take into consideration any current employment and what you want to do in the future i.e. Will you need to be able to cover it at times? Correct placement is crucial for a well executed tattoo.
