Does getting a tattoo hurt?

Pain is really relative. Everyone has a different tolerance to pain. Yes tattoos can hurt! It can be compared to a “hot scratching sensation”. Remember though that you will have a piece of art that will be yours forever and this outweighs the small amount of discomfort you will endure getting your tattoo

How do I care for my tattoo?

Leave the tattoo wrapped for a hour or until you arrive home. A fresh tattoo is a open wound and is prone to bacteria and infection. Please do not soak in a bath for up to 2 weeks. Showering is fine. Cleaning the tattoo with warm water and soap is a must. Only use your clean hands to do so, do no use a face cloth or anything abrasive to clean the area. Pat dry with a clean towel and let it dry completely.

Follow with an aftercare product. We suggest our very own aftercare. It is all natural and easy to apply. Made from Unrefined Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and essential Oils. It is made here onsite at the studio with no hidden nasty Petroleum jelly or chemicals. And the healing time is 4 to 5 days using our product.

Check out our full guide to tattoo aftercare here.

Had the most enjoyable experience with Skye and the rest of the crew while getting my new goooorgeous tattoo! Honestly... the time flew and the laughs were had. Walked out of the shop with a smile on my face and determination to be back as soon as I could. Skye was so attentive and warm that you instantly felt comfortable sitting in the chair.read more

I booked a session with Skye and I absolutely loved how my half forearm sleeve turned out. Not only was it so beautiful... and elegant but the line and dot work that faded each piece into one was absolutely dream like. She even managed to make it work for a darker skin client. The hospitality was above and beyond for a tattoo shop. They made me feel so comfortable and I honestly can’t wait to go back and get more tats. The other artists are a great laugh to talk to as well. Be sure to checkout the cute apprentice Amber too; I’m sure the guys would love to stop by and say hi 😉read more

I usually do not make reviews as this is my first google review ever but;I booked an appointment over the phone... roughly around 12:00pm, came in the parlour just before 2:00pm, was greeted and told to fill out paper work. I then waited almost 30 minutes from 2:05pm to 2:25pm for the artist Igor to finish. I was patient enough... I was then greeted by Igor, for 5 minutes, we both discussed my intentions about my tattoo, was hoping to get it done 5-10 minutes after the initial consultation due to the fact that he would need to set up the bench area and have the stencil printed out for me to get it done (only a 20 minute job tattoo piece) give or take. He then stated to me that he has to talk to these other people who literally just walked in the door as soon as he was about to set up and he instead did a consultation on these random people when I literally am ready to get tattooed but NO, I instead had to wait for roughly another 20 or so minutes... It was beyond rude and unacceptable as I was literally on schedule to do other things after my tattoo and hence to why I came in 5 minutes exactly before 2:00pm to have it done around the 2:00pm mark. I should not have to wait literally 1 hour after my agreed scheduled appointment just because someone else walked in and wanted to consult with my agreed tattoo artist that was literally about to tattoo me... I just straight got up and left. Wasted my time but Igor was nice, he wasn’t rude, but someone else should’ve told the customers that walked in that someone is about to be tattooed so they would need to wait afterwards in order to consult with Igor. Will definitely not be coming here for any future tattoos, sorry to say...read more

A beautiful fine line piece inspired by Fantasia, completed and designed by Rochelle. She is such a fun and highly... skilled artist, the time just flew by. Couldn't be happier and would recommend to anyone looking for those clean crisp lines.Skye is another incredibly skilled artist with a keen eye for detail and design. This tattoo definetily wasn't the easiest to sit through but skye made it smooth sailing all the way, even with the heat ;)I would highly recommend her as an artist for first timers or those looking to create something unique.Both of these talented women are great artists and I cannot wait to get my next tattoo!read more

Sydney has plenty of tattoo parlours around but this place specialises in the particular style I was after which was... Maori cultural. I had a consultation and the artist Daemion was able to arrange and shift his already busy schedule to slot me in the next day, after hours.The staff there are friendly and made me feel comfortable throughout the whole day.They're well priced for the quality of work produced.Will definitely be getting more ink there.read more

It is my absolute pleasure to share a review on my personal experience with Roki, Skye & the crew at The Art Of Tattoo... Petersham.I have had 2 coverup tattoos (30 & 15 years old) recently completed by Roki Maika.I know my first was a very difficult coverup as I had been speaking with many tattooists prior whom all said too difficult or just no way. I had 4 laser removal sessions & still same results.I remember from the first day I walked in & met with Roki, we sat down & talked about my journey & how I was wanting to coverup my old tattoos with Maori Tamoko. Without hesitation Roki said yes I can work with you & coverup the old & incorporate my story with a custom Tamoko that incorporates my culture.All I can say is working with Roki has been a awesome journey & experience with the most amazing results!!So if you’re thinking about getting a new Tattoo? I highly recommend you call, email, or just walk in & speak with Roki & Skye at The Art of Tattoo & book your appointment.I promised Roki to book in for my next Tamoko this time on clean clear skin.read more

If you are looking for the best, look no further than Dhruv! A true artist, able to mould your words into works of art.... He brought my vision to life by the flick of his wrist and was able to display it with such symmetry, movement and expression. He will exceed any and all styles with ease as he has been an international tattoo artist for 16 years! He loves what he does and it reflects greatly in the work he produces. I will exclusively be getting all my tattoos from Dhruv in the future.* HANDS DOWN BEST TATTOO ARTIST IN AUS *read more

Such an amazing atmosphere and really friendly staff and ownership. The walls are adorned with the widest range of... visual stimulation to get the brain churning out the sickest of ideas for next pieces. Really cool portfolio work and even skate decks with animal skulls, music posters and banners it was like stepping into my favourite room in the house 😂Am defo gonna return and smash out some bigger pieces based on their wall art. Usually i plan and know exactly what i want beforehand and deliberate over designs for weeks but Theyve made me wanna get twenty more asap now that ive seen how good their artists are Also as a metal fan the proximity to the crowbar has not gone unnoticed so tbh this is probably the best combo ive seen in a while Thanks so much guys!! Love love love the work and youll definitely see my lovely face again 😂😂read more

An overall comfortable, kind, professional and relaxed atmosphere. You won't find the typical macho "bro" culture that... often leaves non-men feeling uncomfortable or un-welcomed in the studio, instead the team is diverse, talented, considerate and easy going. One of the greatest tattoo experiences i've had in Sydney ~ Check them out, Igor is brilliant.read more

Yesterday I walked in for my first tattoo. The atmosphere was great and the staff were very welcoming and made me feel... incredibly comfortable. I had the pleasure of Rochelle being the artist to give me my first tattoo. She was so professional and bubbly and just made me feel relaxed and that I had nothing to be nervous about. I will definitely be returning to this parlour for my future tattoos. I cannot thank you all enough! 🙂read more

I can’t express how wonderful the experience was! The shop is beautiful and welcoming and the team are all lovely!... Rochelle was wonderful enough to give me three beauties! She spent lots of time working out fonts and designs and showing me different options she’d sketched up and helped me figure out perfect placement. This was by far my best tattooing experience (and the others were all brilliant so that’s really saying something). I’ll be returning for many more! Thanks Rochelle!!!!It’s also a really relaxing atmosphere - I could have stayed all day!read more

A 5-star rating doesn't seem high enough for my great experience at the Art of Tattoo at Petersham. Paul was my tattoo... artist and did an amazing job both designing and drawing on my tattoo. I've had two very large pieces done by Paul and I've gotten so many compliments on the detail and overall appearance of both. If I get any more tattoos, I'll definitely be going back to Paul! I highly recommend him as a tattoo artist and the Art of Tattoo for all your tattoo needs. So great!!read more
