The Wild Paw Tattoo Shop is a little corner we've created to practice and better the craft we so love. It is a place for all who enjoy tattoos and tattooing. No egos and no judgement here.
While we wish to welcome anyone and everyone, it is strict shop policy to not allow any drunks or drugs. We are also unable to tattoo anyone below the age of 18.
GETTING IN TOUCH
With the current Covid-19 pandemic, increased social distancing requirements, and staggered working hours, all our artist are managing their own bookings and appointments. Please look through all our artists and their portfolios, and contact the tattooer you’d like to work with directly. Links to portfolios and contact details can be found here..
Include as much detail as you can about the tattoo you are looking to get, such as placement, rough size estimates and your budget if you have one. Feel free to attach reference images in your email as well. Providing us with all this information cuts down the back and forth emails and will help you get booked in quicker.

Wait times for appointments are between a week to 2-3 months depending on the tattooer’s availability and the complexity of your design.
GETTING TO THE SHOP
Our shop is located at 30A Bali Lane, on the 2nd floor of a nice heritage shop house, right on the edge of the Malay Heritage District. If you’re on the train, we are a short 6 minute walk from Bugis Station. Bus stops along Ophir road are a 2 minute walk and other along North Bridge Road and Beach Road are 5 minutes away. Bali Lane is a pretty narrow road, so getting off at the entrance of Bali Lane might be a good option if you’re coming by Taxi. Roadside parking is available along Arab Street, and there is a sheltered carpark in Golden Landmark Hotel and an open air one opposite Stamford Primary school.
While all the artists in our shop may have aftercare advise that may differ slightly, we generally encourage you to keep the medical bandage we’ve applied on your tattoo on for about 3 days. We have an optional aftercare balm we’ve produced ourselves that is vegan-friendly, cruelty-free and gentle on sore skin if you’d like something to aid with the healing process. Spare medical bandages and various aftercare balms are all available to purchase at the shop, whether you’ve been tattooed here or not. If you have any doubts about aftercare procedures, its best to check in with the artist who made your tattoo as he or she would know best.
We collect deposits for all our appointment bookings and before we begin any custom drawings. Deposits are generally $100, although we might at times ask for a higher deposit for bigger pieces or if we anticipate that the drawing will be very time consuming. The deposit amount will always come off the final price of the tattoo. Deposits are not refundable once we’ve started on your drawing, and are not transferable if you don’t show up for your appointment.
