Not exactly sure about the other states in Australia but here in South Australia you have to be 18 to get a tattoo.

No worries at all :) Definitely come in and say hi next time you’re in Aldinga :)

babycmon said: Hi all! I've been kind of obsessed with your store and all your work since I found this blog. However, I don't really have the funds to travel to Adelaide right now. Is there anywhere similar in Perth that you would recommend? Thanks, guys (:

Hey there :) Glad to hear you love our blog. None of us here know of anyone in particular in Perth but we suggest you look up all the shops in the areas you’re able to travel to and check the artists portfolio’s and see if you like the work. We actually have a few clients from Perth who fly over specifically to be tattooed here :)

Work in progress, hair still needs to be finished. Realistic masquerade girl with compass and rose on calf

Mark’s client flew from Perth (the other side of Australia for those of you overseas) for this piece. The client will be back again in the very near future to have the hair finished off. Six and a half hours work has gone into this piece so far.
