Where is Brisbane’s best tattooist?

Post image for Where is Brisbane’s best tattooist?

Finding a blue ribbon tattooist in Brisbane is often the first task that comes to mind when you want to get a tatt. There’s quite a few tatt shops around the city, but only a couple have a super reputation. Some are rather gifted in tatt designs of their own design, great if you are having trouble with any design plans of your own! Even more provide other services such as body modification as well.

If you’re into getting tattooed in Brisbane, who do you think is the best tattoo artist or shop in Brisbane? What makes them so good? If you create a tatt, do they provide any assistance and tweak your art? Nominate your favorite tattooist in Brisbane below.

Jimmy tattoo is crap:( basically backyarders!!!

Northside go to Morrissey’s at aspley for any style – get tattooed by Kenny.

Southside go for trad stuff at true love tattoo or realism go to garage ink (although they are overpriced) or checkout seventh circle or sacred skin.

I asked Valhalla ink in moorooka to draw a piece and tattoo it for me, the drawing never got finished. Apparently really good at tattoos, but I felt their effort was unmotivated.

Yeah, I also would love to get a white ink tattoo, but haven’t had any luck with getting a tattooist to do one. Any suggestions on places/ artists in the Brisbane/ Gold Coast area?

Does anyone know a good tattoo artist in the Brisbane area that does white ink tattoos? A lot of places refuse to do all white tattoos due to the fact that they can easily go wrong. I have done a lot of research and know that this is what I want but need to find a good artist who will do them

True Love Tattoo – Oxley Rd. Sherwood. They have at least 4 – 5 of Brisbane’s Best Tattoists who are honest & very professional. You won’t be disappointed!!

I own the Inker Tattoo Studio in Kelvin Grove and we are not and will never be a bikie associated shop so please get your facts straight before making any comments and naming shops.

The best Studios in Brisbane go in this order.
1. Black throne – Alison Manners tattoos at this studio and almost has a cult following. 9-12 month waiting list
2. True love Tattoo, Sherwood – 4 Top of the line artists who specialise in old school style Nailz, Mez, AJ Tanor and Pip all throw down quality work consistently.
3. West side Tattoo still have quite a few good artists but have also lost a few quality tattooist in recent years.

Avoid Bikie owned/run studios woolloongabba tattoo, valley tattoo, the inker are examples of these studios but every second tattoo studio is dodgy so do your research and check out the artists portfolios.

Hi Mark22,

It sounds a lot like you are either the owner, or associated with BRANDED.

I am disappointed you would provide such a biast review of a company that you are clearly associated with.

Definitely not what this side of Brisbane needs is another tattoo shop.
