Vic Market Tattoo, says Wade Johnston, is “an homage to the past and the 25 year history of the shop. There’s lots of tattoo flash and beautifully kept wooden furniture.” Johnston, who also has his own machine line, describes himself as “a jack of all trades, starting with neo-traditional and lettering tattoos”. He works alongside Pablo Morte, “our resident expert at black and grey and religious tattoos”; Mark Lording – “he’s the Australiana expert and does them in a traditional Western style”; Anthony Von Ratcorpse, who – as the name suggests – loves all things horror and skateboarding; Chris Jones, a specialist of dot-work and geometric tattoos; Lachie Grenfell, who “takes many references from the true greats of traditional Western tattooing”; Charlie Lacroix – “a French mastermind of the wildest trad tattoo ideas that you can think of”; and Kane Berry, who’s “all about super-clean, super-bold and, quite often, super-cute tattoos.”
