Cape Electric Tattoo is situated in the heart of Cape Town at the foot of Table Mountain, since 2011. Owned and operated by Waldo del Rocca.

We are 3 resident artists, specializing in a large variety of tattooing from Western Traditional, Black & Grey, Japanese and Portraiture. All the artists are generally occupied with appointments, but our days are structured to take walk-ins and consultations, where and when possible.

We offer a relaxed and fun tattooing environment, yet very professional and sterile.

We are looking forward to hearing from you. C.E.T
