Mad Villian: Where they Tattoo like Heroes

Mad Villain Tattoo's establishment six years ago in Moorabbin signifies both the rise of tattoos - and indeed the rise of Moorabbin as a 'resurgent' suburb within the local area.

Though in days gone by some may have said the presence of a tattooist on a shopping strip did not always go hand-in-hand with urban renewal, the commitment to their craft - as well as the rise of popularity of tattoos across Australia and beyond - proves otherwise.

Though the author is not an authority on all things ink, it is undoubted Mad Villain makes itself distinct as a tattooist in a number of ways. First, with the prominent location of their shop on the corner of South Rd and Station St, it is clear this parlour is one proud to promote and proclaim what it does to the wider community.

Walking on in, it is well understood why. Alongside a beautifully laid out waiting area - for there are dozens of sizable posters from which to choose a design in their folio display - there is a wide variety of framed art on the wall.

While each display may not be to everyone's taste no less that these are 'not for sale' - as opposed from being a bad thing - speaks highly of the stores dedication to it's image: these Moorabbin tattooists have thought long and hard about the 'theme' they wish to put forth to a potential or returning customer; and this is always a good sign.

With this, it should be said - though practically any design can be catered for - Ben and Bridgette can be regarded as specialising in two areas in particular. Ben, with tattoos involving Realism and Bridgette with colouring. True to someone perhaps getting their first design these specialties may not appear all important - but to a discerning ink enthusiast going to the 'right' place to get the 'right' look; such a thing is understandably a big factor.

Mad Villian, a Moorabbin tattoo parlour with much to be proud of.
