House Of Daggers
Granted, House Of Daggers sounds like the headquarters of a 1970s Bond villain, but it couldn't be any further from the truth.
Firstly, it's not in Switzerland, it's on Henley Beach Road. So that's a dead giveaway; what villain would set up on Henley Beach Road? Certainly none that we can think of.
Secondly, the people that run it; Stu, Jamie and Simone, are three of the loveliest, non-evil, definitely not going to take over the world kind of people you'll meet.
For over a year and a half, the three of them have been running House of Daggers, a professional tattoo collective. They pride themselves on their work and have recently started offering laser tattoo removal and fading.
"Everything is drawn up by hand, using the old-school method of paper and pen" laughs Stu. He's obviously very passionate about his craft, which he caught his attention at an early age, "when I was young I had a mate who's dad was a biker and I really liked his tattoos. After seeing them I decided I want to get involved in it and eventually I took an apprenticeship."
The space is truly wonderful and credit to the team who say they want to make this a comfortable and welcoming place to get a tattoo.
If that tickles your fancy, then you'll need to book-in, as tattoos are only done by appointment, where the team run through different ideas with you.
When it comes to the removing them, Stu says a lot of clients actually like to go bigger; "generally it's tattoos that people regret. But we can fade them out or completely go over them. It varies".
The best part of all of this is that our caddies will be getting some ink of their own - or so to speak. We'll be rolling the House of Daggers brand all next week, so keep your eyes peeled for some great designs!
Happy Friday Frienday House of Daggers!
