First Tattoo Studio

When Stephanie last visited Singapore, we went to First Tattoo to get matching tattoos. We chose Julian Chia, the artist that did the hand print on my inner bicep, to do our tatts. It's no secret that I am a big fan of Julian's work. I feel old just knowing that I first met Julian when he was an apprentice at my cousin's studio. Oh well...

Matching tattoos may sound corny to some of you but at least we didn't get our names tattooed on each other. That would just be so wrong! I know of some people that tattooed their partner's names and the word 'regret' is an understatement. Ahem!!!!!!!

This is what Stephanie did...

That's Julian!!!
Stephanie's locket...

Here's my tattoo...



I did a key. It's the key to her locket...

While I was there, I blacked out a finger tattoo as well...

First Tattoo is located at 668 North Bridge Road, Singapore 188801. Use Raffles Hospital, Haji Lane or Arab Street as your landmark if you're unsure. Do call the studio at +65 6298 0653 for appointments and for directions should you need it.

Besides Julian, there are other talented artists (Anthony, Jared, etc...) working in the studio too. Nice bunch of people and I'm sure they'll take good care of you should you pop by for a consultation or tattoo.

    1. Thanks man!! It was Steph's idea. I'm loving the tattoo. Not a problem with not meeting up. She'll be here again in August.
