The tattoo-versus-art debate has been around since the sailors traveled across the seven seas with new found ink obsessions inspired by traditions in Pacific and Polynesian islands. The body as a canvas was a new force that bucked conventional ideas of what art was. It is this desire for new and groundbreaking tattoos that sends people in search of Melbourne’s Award Winning Tattoos. For as long as tattoos have existed, tattoo artists have been doing on skin what artists do on traditional mediums… capturing stories, ideas and emotions. They have put people at the center of the art piece, creating walking galleries that exhibit permanently etched stories of places and people and memories. As tattooing has grown in popularity and demand, more and more people are looking to tattooists for more than just flash tattoos and ink gun skills. They’re looking for a tattooist with their own artistic genius and style that aligns with the essence of the soon-to-be-tattooed; a co-creator who’ll take their personal story and transform it into an art piece they’ll wear for life as the ultimate expression of themselves. That takes trust and belief in the tattooist as an artist. That’s why the best tattoo studio in Melbourne has forged itself as an artist collective above all else. Crimson Art Collective is undoubtedly home to incredible artistic genius and prides itself on offering the best custom tattoo designs in Melbourne.
