Background Story

Primitive Tattoo Shop is the pride and repletion of veteran tattoo artist Marc Pinto. Marc is a renowned tattoo artist in Perth and the founder of Primitive Tattoo since 1997. The parlor specializes in tattoos ranging from Japanese Techniques to Indonesian, fine Oceanic to Aboriginal art.
Marc also researched on the indigenous tattoos of Borneo, back in 1997 and continues his research every six months. For his research, he had to visit tribal areas where art of tattooing has evolved from generation to generation. The tattoo culture is something that is handed down for generations through tribes and elders.
Tattoo art is an ageless tradition handed over for generations across the world. While tattoos to the naked eye may appear to be the same, however each tattoo has its unique style, technique, culture and meaning. Primitive tattoo merges the latest technology with classical tools to offer best tattoo art experience.
