This is to Bulldog from 06 to let them know and the rest of the readers of this stuff that BIRO that owns and runs Forever Art Tattoo Studio is still open and it is now ten years old so Forever Art is the oldest established Tattoo Studio in Canberra and it is owend by the Tattooist.And I am under demand by people that are not only local but also interstate. So all I can say is that Bulldog didn’t bother to find out for sure so he new nothing about me at all. If you want to come out do so if you want a look

North Lyneham is the place to go. I’ve had two different artists there and they both did a great job.
Everyone I takll to also recommends North Lyneham.

For piercings… Adrenaline Body Piercings is fantastic. Andrew is highly professional and done a great job on all my piercings.

I got a leg peice done at Alien in Footscray where on the wall was a photo of some guy who had lost a bet and had to have “I love fish and chips” tattooed on his forehead. Funny as hell.

The first Aussie I ever met (while travelling in Greece) was a guy who had ‘F**K YOU’ tatooed on his forehead. From that moment on I knew I was going to migrate and settle here 😉

Ex soldier, ex biker….

So, Thumper, are you a sailor, a soldier, a biker or a crim?

I got mine done by Patto @ Nth Lyneham. I’m very happy with it & going back for more soon. Have they really moved?

I saw Lachlan and Sarah Murdoch arrive for the big Queen’s bash (talking Elizabeth here not Cube stuff)at Parliament and Sarah was openingly showing off her tat (rather bold for a regal function, I thought).

She and Lachlan looked great together.

I’ve had mine for nearly 20 years. I like them, if I didn’t want them I would have lasered them off years ago. As I said, I like them.

They were not the latest trend when I got them. In fact I used to ensure I always wore a long sleeve shirt to work for quite a while. Now it quite annoys me these days to see that everyone has a tattoo.

When I got mine only sailors, soldiers, bikers and crims had them.

women with tattoos are quite gauche.

typical idiotic trend following like tongue/belly button piercings, exposed navels (needs licensing), lycra shorts etc.

people can do what they like with their body, its their right – but if you display idiocy publically expect to be mocked.

i predict when the tattoo trend has passed that laser tattoo removal will be profitable.

Don’t get it…

get a big ‘I’ in the middle of your forehead.

A bloke called Lee did mine in about 87 or 88.

He used to be located upstairs in Civic but the name of the place escapes me.

Apparently he took off down the coast….

My brother just got a whole lot of work done in Tuggeranong – very pleased with the results. I have had work done (locally) in Fyshwick and Queanbeyan – would definately reccomend Queanbeyan – in fact I’m not even sure Biro is still in Fyshwick…

Just remeber than good work isn’t cheap and that cheap work isn’t good.

kimba 9:12 am 16 Mar 06

There’s a pretty good one in Queanbeyan (on Monaro Street). And being Queanbeyan they must do good tattoo’s LOL

Absent Diane 8:18 am 16 Mar 06

Is that still even open…. I heard that it had moved down to homeworld in tuggies>???

Thumper 7:50 am 16 Mar 06

Yeah, Lyneham, even though it wasn’t open when I got all mine done.

I haven’t heard a bad word about it…

Chris at North Lyneham x 2

jube 10:34 pm 15 Mar 06

I definitely recommend Chris at the North Lyneham studio – he has done some fantastic work on a number of my friends since being in Canberra, and I still love the work he did on me when he was in Sydney.
