Fine line tattoos are all the rage right now. From delicate minimalist florals to intricate sacred geometry, there’s a chance you’ve seen them all over social media. Perhaps you’re even considering getting a fine line tattoo (and, thus, have stumbled across this post).
In my recent quest to find a tattoo studio in Melbourne that specialises in fine line tattoos for my own personal tattoo, I wanted to make sure I went to a studio and artist who could create the exact design and style I wanted. As this was going to be my first-ever tattoo, I thoroughly researched fine line tattoos and looked up the work of tattoo artists on Instagram.
As beautiful and elegant as fine line tattoos are, there really is no room for error when it comes to minimal or geometric designs. If a line isn’t straight or a circle isn’t completely round, it will be instantly noticeable. And with tattoos being permanent, that would mean having to look at the error everyday.
This is why I believe it’s very important to find an artist or studio with the technical skills for fine line tattoos. Lucky for us, these days we can just search up the hashtag #finelinetattoo and it will give us access to hundreds (and even thousands) of talented tattoo artists.
Using my research, I shortlisted 5 fine line tattoo studios in Melbourne who I believe are the best at creating minimal and delicate designs. This includes celestial designs, floral designs, lettering and geometry.
JOPOMBC is a tattoo studio in Melbourne CBD specialising in minimalistic and fine line blackwork. I ended up going here for my own tattoo and it turned out really good. The highly detailed and delicate floral tattoos are exceptionally beautiful here.
