Hi all,
Just a question to my fellow Aussie members.....I was wondering where you buy your tattoo supplies from? Do you order locally or use suppliers from other countries?
Many suppliers here in Oz will not sell to people who can't prove that they are working in a legitimate shop, although having said that, I have purchased from some of these companies without having to show proof. I think that's because of the power of the almighty dollar, they'll sell to anyone for the money.
I used to order from a company called Tiger Tattoo Supplies based in Queensland, but they went out of business, then I bit the bullet and started ordering from a shop I found on eBay, Needles Express. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of their products, but they also stopped trading, I'm currently ordering froma shop called Mavis Bush Tattoo Supplies, based in Queensland.....some of their stuff is good, some not so good, plus they only keep a small amount of stock on hand and frequently run out of product and are slow to replenish their stock, postage/shipping is also a problem on occasions, sometimes taking up to 2 weeks from shipping to delivery.

I had same issue and was referred by the guys at Tatsup in Melbourne to try Brett Stewart Tattoo Supplies located in Geelong, Victoria. Old school tattooist & he was happy to sell to me being new to tattooing. Not sure how the postage will be for you, but I guess if you get desperate you could check out their website - Tattoo, Medical and PMU Supplies - decent range that seem to get restocked regularly. Good luck in any case.

I love using Justat supply from NSW! best prices ive found

Do you know if they supply to home tattooists?
Their website states that they supply to professional tattoo artists and studios, that's usually a sign they won't supply to the general public

They've never asked for any proof, just make your account order seem legit haha
