With the tattoo community in Malaysia expanding as greatly as it is, we thought it was fitting to start sharing a list of artists that we’ve been stalking so potential customers and ink admirers will be able to keep up with the thriving scene. When we say stalking, we obviously mean admiring from a virtual distance because we don’t have the energy to physically creep on someone. Unless his first name is ‘Kendrick’ and last name is ‘Lamar’, then nothing will stop us.
Welcome to our new editorial segment #Inkstagram (an existing hashtag on Instagram which seems to show more Suicide Girl-esque photographs than visuals of tattoos), where the JUICE team compiles artists from our own country and neighbouring ones, and eventually ones who are in lands that require airplanes to get to for your perusal. A directory for tattoo artists, if you will.
Now that our introduction is out of the way, let’s talk about our first roundup; here we list 5 artists from Malaysia that execute traditional, watercolour, geometric, black and grey, and weird-but-oddly-cute styled tattoos.
Browse their work below and click on the photographs of the tattoos to be redirected to the artist’s page:

STUDIO CHEER INK (KEPONG)
STUDIO WAYANG KULIT TATU (SUBANG)
STUDIO THE TATTOO PARLOR MALAYSIA

Be sure to follow these artists on Instagram or be on the lookout for the next list of tattoo artists we’ll publish if these guys aren’t your cup of ink.
