Abstruse tattoo studio is home to some of the best tattoo artists in Sydney.
Located in the inner west, our premier tattoo parlour specialises in comic book, anime, cartoon, monster portraits, geek and nerd tattoos. Paul Abstruse, the owner, has been a professional comic book artist for 14 years. He's a fanatical geek himself, so he's been immersed in geek culture for a long time. We are also proud to announce that we will be adding photo realistic and Neo traditional tattooists to our team very soon. These tattooists will also specialise in awesome geekdom.


About Our Team

Every tattoo artist that works at Abstruse Tattoo studio starts their training on the planet Dagobah. There they go through rigorous training. They learn to deal with the dark side of the force and to not be tempted by greed or rushing a tattoo job. Indeed it is easy to succumb to the dark side. But a selfless life is the one of a Jedi tattooist. They spend a lot of time learning that the client comes first. That their needs, ideas and worries are looked after. They are taught to spend quality time in a consultation. And to make sure all the bases are covered using their knowledge learned from their masters.
