I must admit that I’m personally not a huge fan of tattoos, but they simply can not be ignored nowadays. There’s tons of people out there with them and they have been around for centuries.
One of the best rated tattoo specialists in Gauteng is Fourways and Centurion based Jaded Ink. Jaded Ink (who refers to themselves as a boutique brand) is operated by arty farty, friendly, talented and happy people offering service par excellence. After 8 years of working in and around Europe and South Africa, Jaded Ink was born in the summer of 2008, a collaboration of the minds of a great artist and a great entrepeneur. First there was the Fourways branch and now there’s one in Centurion too (which is a stone’s throw away from the Centurion Gautrain Station).
Jaded Ink is a fresh, clean, upmarket and trendy brand with great space, good colours and a warm atmosphere. Hygiene is very important to them, but one can’t help feeling relaxed and welcome when visiting one of their branch at any time of the day. Both Jaded Ink’s branches feature glass tattoo booths, a chill-out area, a consulting room, a gallery wall and a piercing booth – basically a lot of activity in store for clients. Jaded Ink also takes customer relations very seriously, one of the reasons why they have such friendly staff members who very willing to help. Put it to you this way folks, if I ever need to get inked (on a dare or if I lose a bet that I made for a rugby match) I’d trust these folks to do the deed. Who else would I trust to reduce the intensity of the frown on my dad’s forehead if he sees my full sleeve tattoo of Stevie Nicks on my right arm?
Jaded Ink are also Proud Ambassadors for the South African Music Industry, a Proud Supporter for MMA / EFC South Africa and Supporters of FMX and Drifting South Africa.
