This tradition spanned human history, ink gracing the skin of everyone from travelers, warriors, and priestesses, up to the outcasts, jesters, and freaks and geeks, up to the today’s entrepreneurs, politicos, artists and everyday people in cities, suburbs and beyond.
What connected them all is that each time ink met skin, a life gained meaning. Something important was recorded. A date in time. The mark of status. A commitment. A birth. A death. A declaration of power. A secret code between lovers. A hero’s journey.
Honestly can not recommend Primitive enough - all the staff are friendly and have great customer service! I got my first Tattoo from Petra in 2017 and have been hooked since! Her attention to detail, creativity and line work is mind blowing! I love all of Petra's work and would happily let her free hand tattoo anything on me! You won't be disappointed going to Primitive or getting a tattoo from Petra!
I cannot speak more highly of Primitive Tattoo's and in particular Marc Pinto, who I had my appointment with... From start to finish, I felt confident that Marc was going to produce something special! The gun Marc used seemed to also not be as painful as I would usually find and it looks like it has helped to make it better and healthier for healing.
Two sessions down with Petra, and another to go tattoo shop is clean, lots to look at too. I actually fell asleep at one point thats how comfortable i was. Petra is very professional, kind and brilliant at what she does. Would definitely recommend to anyone
Pretty good shop!! Oz did a lovely job, perfect tattoo, exactly what i wanted. The girl at the reception was so helpful, i just explained her once what i would like to have, she made a design perfectly as i wanted; in just one go!! Price is normal too! What else do you need? Just pop in there whenever u are confused to choose between tattoo shops! It’s highly recommended. Thank you Primitive!☺
Today i was given professional, respectful and excellent clinical care. Marc undertook the very best practices for safe and hygienic body piercing and provided verbal and written, clear instructions for my immediate and follow-through after-care. Marc provides excellence in every aspect of his engagement and is passionate about this globally understood and deeply personal art. He was calm and thoughtful, reassuring and diligent. i am so thankful for Marc completing the piercing perfectly and even better than i had hoped. kapai. Raewyn
Pros.. the best in the game.. Petra's a specialist in the art. My wife had a mandala done in Bali by a multi-award winning artist but was such a disappointing job. Petra fixed it. Very happy now!!
For over 10 months I have been going to Primitive to get work done on my full back piece. Marc is a great man and through many years of experience has picked up some amazing skills. The artists available are as varied as they are friendly. Over my time there I met artists from New Zealand, French, Japan and more. No job is to small or to large for the team at Primitive to take on.
Petra is the best I know at dotwork/mandala tattoos. Absolutely amazing
Fantastic service by Eric at Primitive yesterday, helped me with my design and contributed some realistic opinions. Respected my space but made sure I was comfortable. Reasonably priced and went the extra mile in general. Great work guys.
After a lot of research, I found Petra's amazing work on Instagram. Her mandala and henna-style tattoos were flawless... I decided to trust her to tattoo my whole head! Petra's attention to detail is amazing and her work is perfection. I am thrilled with the result and the reaction to her artwork has been positive all-round! She's also just a really cool chick. Would recommend.
