Although we operate from a home based studio in the Gold Coast Hinterland, it is fully licensed, approved by council, health and office of fair trading departments. The set up is professional and yet comfortable as the studio is surrounded by acres of native Australian bush, therefore your tattoo experience is held in a serene and tranquil environment. We also offer you a 180 degree view of the Gold Coast from our studio. The creative and transformative energies of our studio provides a healing space for visitors to connect with their body, mind and spirit, revealing markings etched on skin, which ultimately comes from within. We believe ta moko is a sacred art form, therefore the whole experience is performed in a sacred space.
We don’t normally as we would prefer an email consultation. However you may still wish to do face to face consultation, simply get in touch with us to make a consult appointment.
Please contact us so that we can provide you with a better quote. We charge an hourly rate, however we will work according to your budget. If you budget does not allow for a large ta moko/tattoo that you are wanting, we recommend to split your sessions over time so that it becomes more affordable that way.
We do not cater for walk ins as we have a private studio so an appointment is necessary. You can contact us via our booking form or simply email, Facebook, call or text us. We will then provide you with a quote.
As much as we would like to create a warm and inviting environment, we take our hygiene extremely seriously. Hygiene levels at our studio are carefully maintained with full clean downs of the studio and work areas before and after your tattoo session. Our artists are also equipped with hygiene certificates to ensure the utmost care of hygienic practices.
The standard practice in our studio consists of sterilising our tattoo equipment twice to ensure the highest standard of hygiene and safety are applied. The tattoo needles are used only once and then discarded. Both autoclaves comply with the Australia and NZ standards and are regularly serviced and maintained.
Yes, as a vegetarian ourselves, we would never use anything that is not animal friendly. Our inks are vegan and some are organic. We also use biodegradable plastics as well as organic/natural products where possible.
Cover ups can be quite tricky so we recommend to contact us with a photo so that we are able to advice whether it is doable from our end. We also request that if your tattoo was done by a renowned artist to ask them for permission.
30 mins south from Brisbane airport or 30 mins north from Gold Coast airport
Yes there are a few ranging from caravan parks, motels, bed and breakfasts, etc. Look up accommodation in Pimpama, Coomera or Upper Coomera. Or the rest of the Gold Coast is at your doorstep.
The only way to our studio is by private transport or cab. The Coomera train station is the closest one to us and its about a $20 cab/uber ride one way to our studio. We do offer pick up and drop off service from the Coomera train station to and from our studio but at an additional fee of $25.
There is a mini mall with Woolworths, cafe and a few food outlets about 1km from our studio.
However we understand that sometimes things happen in life that are out of our control so given more than 7 days notice we can transfer your booking to an alternative date. Less then 7 days notice or no shows will forfeit your booking fee.
Cash, Paypal or Bank Transfer – all must be done immediately after your session and must be paid in full unless otherwise organised.
Yes you can, just simply sent us an enquiry to do so and we will set it up for you.
It is very rare that this would happen, however sometimes life throws curve balls so in the unlikely event you will be offered a full refund of your booking fee or a change of your appointment date. We recommend that if you are travelling and have booked flights/accommodation that they are exchangeable/refundable as we will not be liable for any losses.
It is your responsibility to care of your tattoo as it is an open wound. To minimise the risk of bacterial infection, we recommend the following:-
DAILY CARE DURING THE HEALING PROCESS:
PRECAUTIONS DURING THE HEALING PROCESS:
Yes we do. We stock the Anoint – natural tattoo aftercare – for $25. They are made from manuka oil which is traditionally used for medicinal purposes as well as lavender oil, almond oil, calendula flower extract, coconut oil, castor seed oil and carnauba wax. Aroha (love) and traditional karakia (Maori incantations) specific to skin healing are also implemented during the creation of the balm. Using this cream usually cuts down the healing time in half.
We frequent Aotearoa (Auckland, Christchurch, Whakatane), Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Perth) and Asia (Singapore, Nepal) so feel free to register your spot on our waiting list and we will be in touch once we confirm our travel plans.
We appreciate your support and endeavour to reply to all your emails, Facebook, instagram, calls and texts in due time. We are a boutique operation, which means it is a one man (or woman I should say) band that looks after all the enquiries. This is because we prefer to personalise our relationships with our clients. This woman also tattoos and paints, manages the business, her household and her array of children so we apologise should there be a delay in responding your enquiry. It is important to us and our aim is to get back to you within 48 hours, unless we are on tour. Thank you for understanding and for your support! Mauri Ora!

We strongly advise against getting a tattoo while pregnant or nursing. Any possible risk to the physical and spiritual health of the mother and baby should be avoided.
We suggest a good night’s sleep as well as a hearty meal before your appointment with plenty of water. Please do not consume any alcohol at least 24 hours prior. It would be preferable that the area that is to be tattooed be clean and shaved. As our studio is located in the Gold Coast Hinterland, please ensure you bring something to keep you warm as the temperature rapidly drops if its raining or when the sun has set.
We are based in Pimpama, Gold Coast of Australia. We also travel back to Aotearoa, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Singapore & Nepal frequently, so if you are in those areas feel free to put your details on our waiting list so that we can contact you to discuss a booking should a trip arise.
Our limited edition prints are of highest standard fine art digital reproductions available in the world. They are superior in beauty, quality and durability, lasting up to 100 years before any colour change is apparent to the human eye.
A print is created by first capturing the original painting as a high resolution digital image. It is then printed using light-fast pigments on museum quality, acid-free paper using advanced ink-jet technology. The artwork is then hand-signed, given an edition number and comes with a certificate of authenticity from the artist. The value of a published artwork like this will increase over the years with the profile of the artist.
All items are non refundable and non exchangeable. However, in the unlikely event the goods purchased are faulty due to a manufacturing fault, please contact us via the form below with the following details:

An Arts Elemental Tattoo Voucher can be redeemed for one (1) tattoo/ta moko session with your artist of your choice (unless the artist name has been stipulated on the voucher), according to their hourly rate. It cannot be redeemed for cash, returned for a refund, or be replaced after the expiry date. If the entire amount is not used, the remaining balance is void. If the entire amount is used and there are still a number of hours left on your tattoo, the balance must be paid by cash. If the voucher has expired, any remaining balance will be lost.
Customers must quote the Claim Code stated on the voucher upon making a booking, and all Tattoo Voucher bookings must be made at least 2 months prior from the expiry date, as your Tattoo Voucher booking needs to be used before the expiry date. Most of our artists are booked 2-5 months in advance, so please organise a booking as soon as you receive your voucher.
