History of Cooloola Tattoo Part 3
Written by Caz
Tattoo licensing was introduced which involved all of us having to be finger and palm printed, criminal checks including our associations, landlords, personal history. This was quite a stressful time for the whole industry as we were put in the same container as Bike clubs. It took the Office of Fair Trading a while to process everyone’s applications so there was a moment in time of uncertainty for us all, even those who knew they had nothing to hide. This licencing also involved a fee to be paid, which is now yearly. The higher cost being for the owner of the studio. This saw the end of Rainbow beach for CT as paying 2 lots of fees was just not possible. It wasn’t long after this Eammon moved to Brisbane, he had been wanting to branch out for ages and now was the time. We were very sad to see him leave but at least he hadn’t gone to far away. He is still Tattooing and doing beautiful work at Shinko in Albion.

One of our saddest moments in the history of CT, was the passing of Kevin, Kevin had previously done a little bit of Tattooing when he came to us, but still needed training, I have never met a more driven young man, he would work till midnight, if need be, you want a tattoo at 5am no probs, his dedication was unstoppable. It was hard not to laugh when he was around, having such an awesome sense of humour. Kevin is still very much missed and we have a memorial for him on the wall which contains original items of his.

I have been asked over the years, ‘How many Tattoo / piercings would you do a week’ it’s funny how curious people are about this and I always say the same thing, It is impossible to answer as no two weeks are the same, it is not like a normal business that you may be able to gauge as we have different clients, different designs, differing in sizes.
Have seen so many changes over these 20 years, changes in styles with fads coming and going, equipment and machine advances, popularity and amount of Tattooists and studios popping up everywhere, gone are the days of just picking a flash off the wall and if you were real fancy you may even blend a few of them together to have a unique design, now everyone is having one offs drawn up and Tattoos have evolved to a more realistic look as opposed to the outline that is shaded and or coloured in.(although that still is done with traditional) Some designs seem to be timeless (cursive font) whereas others come and go (southern cross, now there was a fad, everyone wanted one)
Tattooing is an extremely interesting profession where it is expected and not unusual to research about many different things, real and fantasy, investigating is a part of the design process which in turn educates on many varied subject matters. Symbols, flowers, animals, history, magic, mythical creatures, skulls, skeletons, cartoons, cars, bikes, buildings, people, font styles, mandala and cursive flows, you name it, whatever a client has in their imagination, on a daily basis it is never dull or boring. Everyone has their own personal reasons for getting a Tattoo, memorial, children’s names, dates, the… just cause, some even view it as a form of therapy which I understand totally.

20 years, wow, thank you to all who have been a part of this journey, what a wild ride it is and has been. I, Caz, have had the privilege to Tattoo and Pierce the children of original clients from 20 odd years ago who are now old enough to get their own.
It is you the customer, the one who loves Tattoos, loves piercings that has supported Tattooing and our studio Cooloola Tattoo all this time.
We appreciate you all.
Soooooooo who wants a Tattoo….. Piercing anyone… see you soon
