Westside Tattoo, West End, BrisbaneInk with taste and attitude

You know what it’s like. You’re itching to get a tattoo, but you just don’t know what to get. Should you get a barbed-wire armband? Or maybe some random Japanese characters (you don’t know what they mean, but they sure look pretty)? Those are, of course, terrible ideas for tattoos, but it’s not always so easy to know if you’ve committed a dermic faux pas.

It’s good to remind yourself that getting a tattoo is permanent (well, sort of). And like all permanent things, it requires serious thought and expert opinion.

Enter Westside Tattoo, a parlour that’s not afraid to tell it like it is when it comes to your planned tattoo designs. Westside’s artists have their eye on long-term success rather than short-term gain, and will refuse to commit anything to your skin that you might regret, or might embarrass them.

They also have the talent to back it up, with some of their most famous artists booked out for over a year in advance. But don’t despair if you can’t wait that long – casual customers looking for small pieces still have a good chance of getting in.

Potential customers can phone first to discuss a planned job or just drop into the store – a clean and well-lit shopfront that’s the antithesis of the stereotypical tattoo parlour. Once you’re happy with your chosen design, shop manager Jason will delegate your job to the artist who works best in your desired style.

Westside covers all tattoo types, from portraits to abstract designs, strong linework to bold colours. Getting a slot might take a bit of waiting, but since a good tattoo is forever, what’s the rush?
