    Been all the way from Tasmania and seen Ben and Kate at the Surfers Paradise Store twice now, was the most comfortable experience ever, Polite and respectful and talented tattooists! You can find many tattoo shops on the Gold Coast but none are as dedicated to thier work as these guys. I refuse to use any other tattooist ever again… See you guys again soon, Thankyou for yet another wonderful experience!! ❤️

    After being referred I managed to book a last minute tattoo with Marco himself. I had a design in mind and after a consultation, I settled on the final draft with great advice. I found the guys to be friendly, professional and clean. Its hard to find someone that actually cares about you and the permanent ink you are about to receive so thank you for going that extra mile and thank you for accomodating my budget. Loved the banter and my tattoo. Will definitely be back x
