Tattoo Flash

I am a tattoo artist and visual designer working in Naarm ‘Melbourne’. My practice centers around tattooing, culture and identity using an illustrative and collaborative approach to projects. Ideas behind permanent mark making and self expression inform my work across disciplines.

I live and work on the sovereign land of the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. I pay my respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded.


Do you use machine or handpoke?
For the moment I am only handpoking. Handpoking is a way of tattooing that involves making small pricks in the skin with a tattoo needle to make up the design. It is significantly slower than tattooing with a machine but most people say it feels more gentle.

Where do you work?
I work in a private studio in Brunswick and Little Gold Studio on Wednesday.

Do you do custom designs?
I love to freehand or draw something up on the day, I will sometimes do pre-drawn customs but usually I prioritize new flash and freehand designs.

Will you tattoo the same design twice?
No, all my designs and flash are one off but sometimes I am happy to draw a variation of a previous design.

How much do your tattoos cost?
My minimum is $150 and most of the tattoos I do are between $250 and $450. I charge around $150 an hour. I can give you a quote on request if we’ve chosen a design, placement and size. If you have budget constraints please feel free to let me know in your email, I’m always happy to work with your budget. I offer a sliding scale for BIPOC+ upon request ($100-150 an hour).

Do you take a deposit?
I take a $50 deposit through paypal which can be refunded if you cancel/reschedule your appointment within 24 hours. 

How do I book in?
Please check my instagram bio to see if my books are open. If they are send an email to pke.zro@gmail.com with your tattoo idea, approx size and placement, preferred dates and anything else you’d like me to know. If my books are closed, send an email with the subject ‘Waitlist’ to be emailed when I open my books again.

Please email with any questions!
