Westside Tattoo is a custom tattoo studio located in West End, Brisbane, Australia. Established in 1998 and now home to some of the country’s best tattooers, we specialise in a wide range of styles including Japanese, traditional American, old school, sacred geometry, tribal, Maori, Polynesian, Samoan, abstract, portrait, photorealism, script, illustrative and B&G.
Our aim as a studio and as individual artists is to provide custom tattoos of the highest quality that will stand the test of time. As such, there may be some work that we choose not to take on. Our counter staff and tattooers will help guide you through this process.
2011 saw us move to our current (much larger and more comfortable) premises in Hardgrave Rd, and welcome to the studio the services of MJ Driver laser tattoo removal. Mike’s work in lightening/removing old, unwanted tattoos, allow us to fully realise the potential of every client’s new design.

If you’d like to be tattooed by one of our artists, contact the studio to discuss what you’re after with our counter staff or shop manager. The best way to do this is in person… simply drop by to speak to us anytime we’re open. Once we’ve established what you’re after and whether we’ll be able to help you, we’ll book you an initial consultation and follow up tattoo session/s with the appropriate tattooer.
While we’re a very busy studio and most of our work is by appointment, we do welcome walk-ins wherever possible. Feel free to call us before you come in to check if there are any tattooers available on the day.
Most of our crew strive to have merchandise available for purchase both instore and at our online merch store . At any given time you’ll find t-shirts, prints, books, bags, badges/patches/stickers and more…you never know your luck. Quantities of each title are generally very limited and stocks change all the time so make sure you keep an eye on things regularly.
We have gift vouchers available to purchase both instore and via our webstore. A commonly asked question is “how much is a good dollar figure to purchase as a gift?” While we don’t have a minimum dollar value for vouchers, as a basic guide, the minimum deposit that our clients will be asked to leave as a deposit for any tattoo booking is $100, and the minimum cost for a tattoo, regardless of design/size, is $100…either of those figures can be a great gift for anyone who is looking to be tattooed at Westside. Of course, you can add any dollar value to a voucher that you’d like so, if you’re feeling generous, go nuts!
HOW TO GET HERE
Our studio is located on Hardgrave Rd, not more than 50 metres from stop 12 on the 199 bus route from town, a short walk from the West End Ferry terminal at Hoogley St, and a slightly longer walk from Boundary Rd, the main drag of West End. If you’re in a car there’s plenty of free street parking (while the area is getting busier and busier, spots can usually be found within a couple hundred metres of the studio) and ample cafes and shops to help pass the time before you get tattooed or while waiting for a friend.
