We’re a private tattoo studio located in the Brisbane suburb of Springwood. Because we don’t take walk-ins, once you make your appointment with us, we’ll send you the exact address.
First we need an idea. Either you come to us with a design idea, or if you aren’t sure, we can help you come up with one by fleshing out where you want it, what kind of style you like and finding you some references. Then, your tattoo artist takes your idea and creates a design that brings it to life. When you come into the studio, we work collaboratively on the design to ensure it’s just right.
Great question. We’ve made a video explaining the aftercare requirements for your new artwork.
No. All our artists are booked in advance.
The simple answer – yes, it does. But not as much as you might think. After just a short amount of time, your body’s endorphins, which are natural pain killers, kick in and make the pain much more manageable. And our artists are trained to tattoo with a gentle, layering technique that alleviates much of the pain from the old-school pressure style.
Some areas are also more painful than others – such as any area directly over a bone. Areas protected by a large muscle – such as upper-arm, calf and thigh – on the other hand tend to be less painful.
The pain from a tattoo is often compared to a cat scratch or a mild burning sensation. But everyone has a different pain tolerance and every tattoo will result in different sensations. Your own endorphins will last for two to three hours, which tends to define the natural limit of your tattooing session.
We don’t recommend the use of numbing cream before your tattooing session. Some creams can make the skin more difficult to tattoo and can affect the healing afterwards as well.
Many people know they want a tattoo, but aren’t sure how to choose a design. The first step is to do some research. Find some images that appeal to you. See if they have a similarity – a central thread that ties them together and is the thing that is resonating with you. This is the start of your own design.
Of course, we’re always happy to give advice or even references should you need them. Just shoot us a message or book your appointment[link] to get started on the process. And once you’ve got your idea nailed down, your tattoo artist will collaborate with you to develop a custom design that takes your vision and amplifies it.
Always. At Tattoo Twins pride ourselves on being serious about our cleanliness and sterilisation procedures at all times. We use sterile, one-time use tubes and needles, wear gloves and, when required or if the client requests, masks. All of our supplies come from reputable manufacturers and we make sure they are used well before their expiration dates.
Our artists are always happy to discuss our safety and hygiene procedures with you as well. Your safety and peace of mind is important to us.
Tattoos are charged either by the piece or at a flat day rate for larger pieces. The price of a piece is generally determined by subject, style, placement, colours, detail and size, and by how long it will take to do the work.
Drop us a line or use our online booking form[link] if you’d like a quote on your particular tattoo.
We’re open every day by appointment, except for Sunday and Monday.
We’ll collaborate and discuss your design with you prior to your appointment and you’ll see your finished design at your appointment. At that stage you’ll have plenty of time to work with your artist to make revisions then as well if necessary.
We rarely have a disappointed client.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing so that nothing is rubbing against your new tattoo. Give yourself plenty of time afterwards to relax. We generally don’t recommend that you drink alcohol before your appointment, or take any medication that can thin your blood (such as anti-inflammatories).
We do on a case by case basis. Every tattoo is different and we’ll need to see the piece before we can give a definitive answer. Shoot us a message or book in a consultation.
