Golden Needle tattoo studio is located in Phuket Town, near Rama IX Park. The owner of this multi-award-winning tattoo shop, Chart Khemtong, has a predestined name in Thai as ‘khem’ means needle and ‘tong’ means gold, which explains the name of the shop. With 20 years’ experience in tattooing, Chart is one of the most talented tattoo artists in Phuket. Golden Needle studio is a nicely decorated, compact wooden house (check out the lampshade entirely made of used tattoo needles). Working with two employees, Mee and Geng, Chart specialises in oriental designs. Famous UFC and MMA fighters have been tattooed at Golden Needle which uses only electric tattoo machines. Hygiene is priority number one here, and the prices are definitely worth the quality you receive.
