A Tattooed Life: A brief history of Luxury ink Bali
Luxury ink bali was first opened in 2013 by an australian owner (alan) starting with only 1 artist (joky fluke) and manager (takie).
For Alan a new country, a new buisness and a hunger to succeed, driven by passion and love for tattoo’s. With not many clients and just 1 artist slowly getting buiser with a city full of competition and established studios. But it was time for Alan to sell luxury ink bali to create his own studio in australia closer to home.
Alan to Takie and Joky
Alan had ask Takie and Joky if they wanted to buy luxury ink in 2014, which they did.
Straight away they found 2 more full time artists. This was real life make it or break it situation. Survival based purley on artist skills and a little luck.
Days were long and hard, getting our name out, staying open late with hopes of catching 1 or 2 walk ins. As time passed and the client base grew, so did our roster of artists.
We grew into a solid team with varying styles. Supporting each other at local and international tattoo conventions was a success with multiple awards being won everytime.
With now 18 full time artists and 6 part time we opened a larger studio in seminyak. With all the artists together we are now one of the biggest studios worldwide.
We thank all the artists and customers as we wouldnt be where we are today without you all. We look forward to to seeing you all in the studio.
