We are a passionate group of artists. And truly awesome too.

Victims of Ink has two great locations. The first is in the picturesque swimming beach suburb of Port Melbourne, and the second is located in bustling Chapel Street, South Yarra, a suburb with a upmarket and funky shops.

Our studios are comprehensive in their artistic scope, catering to clientele who pre-book with us for custom designed work from any of our talented tattoo artists, whilst also retaining the glory and excitement of a traditional street shop that welcomes walk-ins (spur of the moment tattoos), taking the ideas of our clients through to fruition via the experienced eyes of our staff.

Victims of Ink's strength lies in our ability to delegate our clients' design briefs to the most appropriate artist to ensure the end result is of the highest calibre.
