Tattoos in Canberra circa 2011?

By 13 October 2011 14

Gday all,

I’ve recently moved here from Sydney and am wondering if anyone knows of a good tattoo place in the ACT.

I have an unfinished sleeve that i need to get finished, plus start a new one on my leg.

I have heard of good ones in Lyneham , Tuggeranong and Queanbeyan. Just want some advice. Thanks all!

I get mine done at Tattoo X-Treme in Queanbeyan All have turned out awesome. THe only really minor error was some tiny missed gaps (2 gaps of about 1mm on the swirly bot of the ‘S’) on my daughters name on my forearm, went back about three weeks after it was done (when the gaps became really apparent) and they sorted it out straight away and it is fine now. It is only a tiny error and something that is common no matter who does your tattoo given the size of the tatt, the ink that can get in the way of spotting these things and the diffculty of the font I designed for it.

Either Wallis @ Tattoo Culture in Tuggeranong or Rush @ Freestyle in the city.

Lyneham is nothing special now that Chris Reid has left, in my opinion.

If Grizz is still at Lyneham, I would recommend him. I miss X though. She is the tattoo guru. If you had a good artist in Sydney, it’s only a short drive to go back and get the job done.

Rush (Freestyle Tattoos in the City) is the only tattooist in Canberra I would recommend. Purely based on personal experience. I’ve had tattoos done in Queanbeyan, Tuggeranong and Lyneham…none of the people I dealt with came close to Rush. If X was still here I would also recommend her. She did my first one back in the 90′s.

Cactus @ North Lyneham is a damn fine artist.

If you wanted to take a weekend down the coast I can highly recommend 13 Crowns in Huskisson.
Lovely spot, great laid back studio and talented artists.
Tell ‘em Marty sent you…

I know some tattooists are renowned for certain types of tats eg. Japanese style or writing etc. Can anyone recommend a tattooist to do flowers and butterflies? Ive been looking at some of the pics in the online folios by tattooists at Nth Lyneham I am edging towards Dave Carter. Any thoughts?
