Check out who’s who at the studio these days!!
come by the shop all day Saturday… 2 artists ready to do your tattoos from 11am onwards! check out www.authentink.com for more info and artist gallery!
I will be taking a bit of a rest over the holidays but I will be around the shop and answering emails, perhaps with a bit longer delay than usual as I am hoping to get out on the bike a bit… so please be patient for replies!
Authent/Ink Studio will be open throughout the holiday season and Kei will be available for tattoos – by pre-arranged appointment only. So if you have a new years resolution to take the plunge and get tattooed, jump on our Contact Page and email one of our artists today to arrange a consult/appointment! There are only a few spots left, so don’t sleep on it!
Everyone here at Authent/Ink Studios wishes you a Merry Christmas, be safe over the holiday period and see you in the new year!
So now that I have my colleagues and fellow artists that work with me picking up the slack and also sharing the Japanese style workload with me I have readjusted my wait time down to around 12-14 months for a consult… and added an exception… see below please 🙂
The wait for a FULL Japanese Backpiece with background is discretionary, but as creating this size and type of tattoo is my passion, I strive to get these in sooner, so expect around a 6 month wait for a consult if you are truly committed to a proper traditional backpiece to start your bodysuit. Email me through the website for more info. Thanks!
finally I got some Tat-jacket sleeves in the shop… these are awesome for summer time!! 50 spf UV protection for outdoor work, bike riding, hiking etc… and good for going out clubbing, drinking, restaurants with a ‘no tattoo’ policy which we’ve seen a lot more of here in sydney. Win win, go in to the pub wearing the sleeve, take it off inside. fits in your pocket. Great for summer days when you don’t have a jacket. Everyone who has been tattooed by me knows how much I hate the sun messing up my work… here is your chance to sort that out for good with no more excuses!! Available individually in either HALF sleeve or FULL sleeve. Drop by the shop to get them in person or order through the website store linked below
Keisuke Kitamura is available all day today and the next few weeks at Authent/Ink Tattoo Studio for walk-ins … black & grey, portraits.. small or large! Religious tattoos… contact him online or just pop round to sort it out!
Authentink Studio welcomes Kei Kitamura to the family. Kei specialises in black & grey portraits and realism, religious tattooing, tribal, neo-japanese, and some custom colour work on a case by case basis. Check out his portfolio here… and you can email him from the contact page there!
It’s official, we’re licensed, legal and legit! What better way to celebrate than with a huge party!! With thanks to sponsors Sailor Jerry and Wicked Energy Drink, we threw a shop party like no other in our unique Japanese style studio space!
“My aim with Authent/Ink Studio is to create a tattoo studio atmosphere where clients and artists can feel comfortable, relaxed and inspired, and artists can create authentic tattoo art in its various forms while clients can expect and receive quality, service and honesty in both their artists’ and art” ~ Kian Forreal ~
