Hi guys!

Just wondering if you use a vegan ink? And if so or if you're not sure, what brands do you use? I'm really keen to have a cruelty free ink for my first tattoo because it aligns with my values.

If you could let me know that would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Just wanted to say a big thanks to Tom for the awesome tattoo of a dragon he free styled on to my bottom forearm yesterday. I came into the shop with a design of a dragon I wanted, and he ended up free styling his own awesome design out of his head.
Highly recommend you do your work with him, if you want an awesome one of a kind tattoo.
Thanks Tom and Primitive Tattoo. looking forward to get my next tattoo done with you guys.

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to say thanks for such a great experience yesterday. I had my tragus pierced by Matt and he did a great job. He was calm and talked to me the whole time so I didn't feel nervous. Everything was clean and hygienic and my ear doesn't hurt at all today.

Thanks Matt! I might be back to get another piercing soon.

Hi Primitive!

I got my first tattoo done with Tim yesterday and I am very, very pleased with how it turned-out. http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/7571/dscn0633ux3.jpg

You guys came highly-recommended by my friends and they were absolutely right in doing so. If I ever get another tattoo, I'll be heading your way again.

Hi everyone... I first met Marc as I was doing the rounds looking for a tattooist that could do a cover up piece on my back. I spoke to several 'professionals' in Perth & they simply said it couldnt be done. When I spoke to Marc however he had some great suggestions & designs from Borneo & also asked if I wanted to have the work done the traditional way, by hand. I opted for this, knowing it looks different, somehow more tribal/natural. I also thought a design from Borneo should be done 'their way' by hand. My tattoo is now nearly finished & Im absolutely stoked with it! I get complemented on it constantly. I have to say that the whole team at Primitive are consumate professionals in every way. Its a comfortable, relaxing environment & theyre happy to answer any questions I have. If youre thinking of having any ink work done, do yourself a favour & talk to these guys first. Youll be happy you did. Id gladly recommend them without hesitation.

Hey to all at primitive art!!!

It has been so long since I had my tattoo done at primitive art. And I would just love to thank Ree for the AMAZING job that she did of the fairy on my right leg. So whenever someone coplements me on her and ask were I got it done I always tell them that Ree did it and point them in the direction of your store. Thanks again for putting up with me when I was a bit teary towards the end and I hope to be there soon with my new tattoo
Thanks Jess

Hi Marc.
Just wanted to say thanks very much for the superb tattoo that you did for me on the last day of my holiday last November. It looks absolutely amazing and I can't wait to have further work done when we make it down under for good! The wife's so impressed, she wants one too.
All the best to you and the guys in the shop & I hope you're all keeping well.

hey guys, ur shop is awsome and ur rep is amazing, i currently started training to pierce in a small tattoo shop but am not getting a certificate or anything out of it. the opportunity came up so i took it due to my passion for body art. i absolutely love piercing but want to expand my opportunities for the future, how do i go about getting a certificate because having just experience wont help me in the future. im a tad stuck on where to go. please help on some advice for its an excentric industry id love to be a real part of. x x

i'll go with the obliqtory hey as my greeting to all the potential piercee's
/tatooee' out there! hope your all good! i was in primitive a couple of weeks ago for a very professional and expert piercing by Fe! i went for the prince albert, surprised as i was, it was'nt the most painful piercing i've ever had!! tongue was far worse, that probly has somthing to do with the piercer! even though i thought i'd been shot in the morning it soon cleaned up well! i suppose you could say i'm quite proud of my new piercing, it gives me somthing a little more interesting to look at when i'm taking a leak if nothing else, at the moment anyway. i cant wait too show my mum i'm sure she'll be as proud as i'am!! she might even want one herself??? just joking, mums dont have willys! well mine does'nt, i think!! enough waffle! thanks fe for the piercing, be back soon for an other somthing else. paul.

Would highly recommend Marc's work to anyone looking for a 'real' tattoo. Through a traditional natural process he is able to produce intricate detail, shading and bold colours- the end result: an authentic, organic look with deep meaning. Had one arm done and going back for another. Check out some of the mad borneo designs- will not get this look anywhere else, (except maybe the jungles of Borneo.)
