Situated in the heart of Cape Town at the foot of Table Mountain, since 2011. A traditional tattoo shop over a decade old, 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 tattoo artists are generally occupied with appointments, but our days are structured to take walk-ins and consultations, where and when possible. Our tattoo shop offers a relaxed and fun tattooing environment, yet very professional and sterile. We are looking forward to hearing from you. C.E.T
