We are a custom design and walk-in tattoo studio (sorry, no piercing). We are fast becoming renown as Sydney’s go to Tattoo Studio, with our artists tattooing the likes of Justin Beiber, Ruby Rose, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith. Our shop is tucked away in a light-filled studio in Bondi, open 7 days a week from 11am until late. We pride ourselves on our friendliness, cleanliness and our down to earth attitude – Everyone is welcome!

Our studio is a treasure-trove of tattoo relics, tattoo memorabilia and just plain old cool shit! Every inch of every wall is covered in art and sculpture, collected from around the world over decades of travel. Our studio space is constantly evolving with new art, new tattoos, tattoo memorabilia and guest artists.  *As our studio is very busy with limited space, we kindly ask that you limit the people accompanying you to just one. There is plenty to see and do around our studio, so ideally it would be great if your friends and family could meet you after your appointment – thank you.

Despite our name, we don’t just do Japanese style tattooing, we cover all styles from black and grey, realsim, geometric/dot work to traditional Americana. We have some of the best artists in the industry, each being fully licensed using only the best equipment and supplies. To find out more about our artists and to see their work, head to the artist section on our website.


Even though our artists work mostly by pre-booked appointments, we still offer walk-in’s when time permits. If we have time to do same-day tattoos, it will usually be small to medium in size with the design ready to go. If we can’t tattoo you on the spot, there may be an artist who will have time later that day or the following to get you tattooed. Our studio has up to 5 artists working at any one time, so chances are good we can get you booked in. If you’re wanting to get a large or more complex tattoo, it’s best that you contact one of our artists directly to organise a consultation.

Little Tokyo is open Monday to Sunday, 11am until Late. We recommend calling ahead for walk-in appointments but if you feel like dropping in, we’ll be more than happy to chat to you about your tattoo.

Open 7 days a week, 11am – Late
