The Painted Lady Tattoo Studio in Holland Park is a boutique studio operating by appointment only with Vegan ink. All artists are talented, professional and friendly and can tattoo in all genres.

Always recommend Jon FTW at Wild at Heart. Specialises in old school/bright/colourful. Amazing colour and line work.
Recommend Mike Driver for laser removal in Brisbane.
But I DO NOT suggest going to Phatt Tatt- Very poor quality work.

Seventh circle tattoo at the gabba. Loz hocking best in brissue. Don’t believe me check out the only Australian endorsement at the back of kat Von d’s autobiography.

Jimmy Tattoo at Windsor is an absolute must avoid. Expensive for what is essentially backyard crap.

I’ve tried a few different places in bris
My number 1 is def true love tattoo I’m Sherwood.

Royal ink in Milton also have some super talented artists, sadly david who started my sleeve left to go to Hong Kong this year… But Ray does amazing portraits!

The next place I’m going to try is garage ink in browns plains… Karlee Sabrina’s work is unreal! And all the artists work appears first class! I’ve heard nothing but good things ;)

My self and partner and friends, have all gone to scorpion tattoo at northlakes and are very happy with the friendly service, and the tattooing, they will work with you to get the design you want! They all say hello and most defiantly make you feel welcomed! We have all been tattooed by different artists at scorpions, and we are all happy of the outcome! And they are not associated with bikie gangs!!

Garage ink. The artists are relaxed friendly and more than capable of helping with your designs. I have had 5 full days with Teneile and each has gone to a new level. Looking forward to many more visits. Keep up the brilliant work

Marco Ventura on the Gold Coast! He’s a true artist and does unique tattoos in any style… I gave him my ideas and he didn’t draw just one sketch… He gave me a couple of personalised options. Awesome artist, highly recommend. Surf n ink studio. :)
