Hi there! I'm Bie (or Abbie)
I'm a Wollongong based tattoo artist.
I've been tattooing for over 3 years now,
and I love my career!
A little about me:
My passion is colour!
(could you tell?)
I specialise in illustrative colour work, though I will take on black and grey tattoos depending on the concept.
My work resembles neotraditional mixed with a painterly style.
My favourite concepts to tattoo are; animals, faces, pop culture, fruits and bold floral work.
My idea of a relaxing day off is binging shows, playing video games, or hanging with my cat Tulio ! I also love to make unique jewellery, and I sell it here on my website and in the studio ! <3
I'm British, but moved out to Australia when I turned 7 so I don't have much of an accent anymore, though it comes out sometimes.
I've been drawing practically every day since 13 years old, and it was always a dream of mine to have a career in art.
I never went to art collage or uni, just practice practice practice at home in high school. social media had a massive help in my development of my skills, following my favourite artists and watching them draw or paint helped me to become who I am today.
I fell in love with tattooing when I decided to get my first one, a 6 hour long session of gushing over the entire process -
( while struggling to keep it together of course... haha! ) - and my determined young self managed to start an apprenticeship just a few weeks after in 2018. Since then I've been working hard to develop my style and clientele.

My goal is always to make sure you feel as comfortable as you can be with the whole tattoo process, from the design to the tattoo itself. I know the whole thing can sometimes be a daunting task, but I'm here to help <3
I'm easy going, if you need a break all you need is ask, if you'd rather to talk during your tattoo to distract yourself, or if you'd rather have a silent appointment and stick some headphones in, chill out to a podcast or music, that is completely up to you. I enjoy both talking and just listening to music so the choice is yours.
