Meet The Artists: Garage Ink Tattoo Studio

In a city known for its sun, sand and surf, the artists at Garage Ink Tattoo are all about the black and grey.

Referred to as the Manor, Garage Ink is located in the Gold Coast mountains in Queensland, Australia. Garage Ink is owned by Teneile Napoli, and you might be surprised to now that she has an all-female crew. 

Garage Ink has been named Queensland's best tattoo studio by Inked Magazine and the ladies have graced the covers of several tattoo magazines around the world. These sisters are doing it for themselves - and killing it!

Realism (black and grey, in particular) is the specialty of most of the artists, although some do color and different tattoo styles. Let's meet the ladies and see which one could be best suited to your next tattoo.
