...we combine contemporary tattoo design with traditional tattoo elements and batik motives from Indonesia. In our tattoo studios in Bali & Hamburg we offer machine tattoos as well as traditional tattoo techniques such as hand poke and hand tapping tattoos.

...we take the best of both cultures to establish a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in a clean and professional environment. At Satapak Tattoo Bali we follow European hygiene standards and use highest quality tattoo equipment and vegan ink.

Known for our welcoming atmosphere we care for a friendly and honest communication in our tattoostudio.  We are proud to have a big community of Indonesian's best artists cooperating with us. All artists are spezialized in particular tattoo styles. Our hand tapping artists come all the way from Borneo and Mentawai islands. These are islands with one of the most ancient tattoo tradition worldwide.

Tattoo Techniques

For hand poke tattoos we use a sterile tattoo needle attached to a wooden handle. The tattoo is done manually dot by dot. This creates particularly natural and organic looking tattoos. Hand poke tattoos are less invasive and heal much faster compared to machine tattoos. Due to the fast healing process you can get your Bali tattoo and still enjoy the pleasures of a nice swim in the pool or Bali sea.

The traditional tools for hand tapping tattoos in Indonesia are two handles made from iron wood. One handle with a sterile needle attached and a second handle for tapping on it to insert the needle softly into the skin. For hand tapping tattoos two people are needed. The tattoo artist and his assistant who stretches the skin. Traditional tattoos have been done for centuries in Indonesia.

Machine tattoos probably don't need much of an explanation these days. For all of our tattoos, whether machine or traditional tattoos, we use only imported high quality products and inks. At Satapak Tattoo Bali we care about the highest hygiene standards and a personal connection between the artist and the client.
