BEST TATTOO ART

Lighthouse Tattoo
The standard of graphics in the tattoo industry has long surpassed the hastily etched anchors and skull and crossbones on drunk sailors of yore. In such a competitive arena it’s hard to stand out, but Lighthouse Tattoo does. They have a stable of 13 elite specialist artists plus regular interstate and international guest artists. The studio offers the full gamut of recognised tattoo styles including: western traditional, neo-traditional and illustrative, black and grey, realistic, geometric and dot work, portraiture, and script; or clients can design something totally bespoke with an artist. Lighthouse Tattoo is especially revered for their large scale work with a focus on Japanese tattoo. Led by Alex Rusty, Ryan Ussher, and Nathan Puata, these guys have gained a reputation as masters and are highly regarded by clients and tattoo artists alike. The renovated warehouse premises in Botany has a modern industrial chic, with clean lines and an easy, comfortable, welcoming vibe – you’ll need to book before you go, though.
