Pacific Ink Tattoo Studio, located at Terrigal on the Central Coast, demonstrates the high level of detail achieved by the Aspect Z team. Designed in 2008, the Pacific Ink project saw the Aspect Z team paving the way in modern studio design. The studio reinvents the dark and confrontational tattoo parlours of the past, creating an open and warm environment that feels modern whilst acknowledging the cultural history of tattoo as an artform. Since its construction, it has set a new standard for tattoo studio fitout nationally.
Warm bluegum flooring and wall cladding contrasts with contemporary finishes of stainless steel, black leather, zinc cladding and high glass polyurethanes. The addition of mirrors, sound systems and interactive computer displays combine to create a unique experience for the user.
