    I could not be more glad that I went to Authentink for my first tattoo - I completely recommend any other first-timers, and everyone else for that matter! I had a general idea about what I wanted, but the guys and girls are so creative and talented that they guided me through the creation, made suggestions which I loved and incorporated in to the design, but still made sure they left me in complete control of what we ended up with - and I couldn't be more in love with it! It was painfully obvious how nervous I was, but Glenn and Jonas started chatting away to my sister and me, which distracted me completely - with out that I probably would have bottled it and ran...thank you guys! Will was my tattoo artist - this guy is a superstar with some great stories to tell! He was brilliant at making me feel relaxed and explaining the process to me so I knew exactly what was going on. My tattoo means so much to me and I can't thank him enough for how perfectly it turned out...I've not stopped getting compliments! Moral of the story - go to Authentink, you won't be disappointed :)

    Amazing shop , amazing people ! From the first booking of a consult right the way through to getting inked , you guys were super professional and so kind ! This was my 3rd tattoo ( others from other shops) and hands down the best experience I’ve had . Glenn was amazing , took a couple of ideas from our consult and come up with a beautiful peony for me that is better then any idea I had . Incredible work ! I am beyond grateful . I wouldn’t go anywhere else !

    I just got my first tattoo done today with Gus Honey, he is really friendly and professional, constantly asking me if I am ok. Tegan helped me a lot with my questions and replied my email really quickly, needless to say, she is friendly and lovely to speak to as well. Everyone in the shop is super friendly, and ontime, it does make my first tattoo unforgettable, my wife loved the finishing tattoo as well! I am truely satisfied! For sure I will be getting all my other tattoo done there in the future!

    I've had all three of my tattoos done here (two with Seth and one with Jess), and all three were an amazing experience! The artists are so talented, and are attentive to your desires and very knowledgeable about what will look best. For the girls I highly suggest getting in on their ladies nights! Had two of mine done on ladies night and it was so much fun each time!

    From my first interaction with the group at Authentink I knew that I was in for a pretty special experience. Lance took my thoughts and concepts and was able in a short consultation to bring them to life and really show me how he envisioned my plan. He made sure that I could see what he was seeing and that I was comfortable with the plan. He was also honest about how long he would need, to give me the absolute best tattoo he could. Once we got started, he knocked it out of the park giving me an absolutely incredible piece of work that has everyone double-taking. Having already got a few tattoos from various shops, and using those experiences as a guide, I packed my headphones in order to keep myself busy for the 6 hours of tattooing on day 1. As it turned out, they were completely unnecessary. The vibe in the shop is extremely laid back, and all artists make you feel part of the discussion, and bring you in on the laughs, this makes the experience so much better and the time pass in a much more pleasant fashion. I can't speak highly enough of both the quality of tattoo from Lance, but also every other tattoo I saw leave the shop during my three days there. Will definitely be back for more, and the only reason I have given 5 stars is because 10 isn't an option.

    Kian first tattooed me around 6 years ago and it still looks as good as new. With his advice and knowledge i was guided to the most amazing ink I have. I know there are other great artists out there but I could not let them tattoo me after my experience with Kian. This is the only place I would every go to now.


Artist Reviews

Reviews from former artists and guest artists to get an idea of the relationships we foster with our artists and what they have to say about working at Authentink Studio

  • Jarrad Serafino – Melbourne, Australia

    Authentink is an incredible studio. Comfortable, friendly and immaculately run. I came up for two weeks for my first guest spot with little work lined up, and ended up flat out busy every single day. Kian and his crew definitely run a tight ship, truely the most organised and well structured tattoo shop i’ve worked in, and a lot of fun. I left feeling fulfilled and inspired, and look forward to returning!

  • Joao Bosco, LA, USA

    To work at Authentink Studio was a honour and pleasure. A truly well organize and friendly environment, where the respect for both artists and customers are nothing less than priority. Kian and his whole crew approach the craft with enourmous respect. After working in many shops around the globe, i have to say that theres not many parlours like this, therefore , whenever I'm in Sydney, Authenink will always be my home, my harbour.

  • Vincent Penning, Netherlands

    Authentink tattoo studio Is one of the best studios I have had the pleasure of working at. Kian’s organisation of shop and staff makes work easy in a very busy shop . The clients are great I believe this is due to the semi private nature of Authentink, only serious clients make the journey, making them very easy to work with and open to your ideas as a artist allowing you to be able to make quality work. Authentink was and is a great experience , I have learned and grown there and made awesome friends I hope to get back there soon.

    Arriving at Authentink at the early stage of my career was a chance to focus and progress on a wide range of style and technic to really find my way inside the tattoo scene. It was great for me to be surrounded with talent in a very busy environment with some of the kindest and easiest customer ever.

    Guesting at Authentink for a second time has been good! I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside a fantastic team of artist from all corners of the world, from whom I’ve gained friendship and knowledge. The lovely shop management keep things running smooth at the busiest of times. Having stayed a bit longer this time I’ve had the chance to work on larger scale projects. I love my loyal and trusting customers here and look forward to coming back!
