As one of the oldest tattoo studios in Cape Town, Wildfire Tattoos and Piercings has become a tattoo powerhouse that hosts some of the most talented local artists in their respective fields.
Since our humble beginning on Long Street in 1994, we have offered tattooing and body piercing by fully qualified professionals who undertake all types of tattoos, from simple symbols to challenging masterpieces, from classic and modern methods, to stick and poke.
Getting a tattoo is forever, so you need to make sure that you choose from the best artists out there. Our artists specialize in various tattoo styles you can select from, like bio-mechanical, tribal, traditional, and black & grey.
From ear piercings to facial and genital piercings, we pierce with single-use needles and a sterile autoclaved setup up with every new client. Think tongue, labret, surface bar, dermal anchors nose, daith, rook, or lobe.
We also sell our own unique and top-of-the-range body jewellery to suit any taste. Check out our online shop [coming soon] to browse through our array of aftercare and jewellery items.
At the forefront of their fields, be it in piercing techniques, aftercare methods, or technical knowledge of our jewelry, all our staff go through constant training, research, and experimentation to be able to take care of you on a medical and artistic level.
We also use very exacting and internationally recognised hygiene standards – which is a must in this industry – to bring your creativity to life ‘safely’.
Licensed and run under the strictest levels of hygiene, our studios and artistic experts follow the highest modern safety standards and use premium equipment to ensure quality artwork, creativity, and customer service.
You can choose between our flagship studio located in Century City’s Canal Walk or our other two studios located in Cape Town’s City Bowl and Kenilworth’s Access Park.

I love to work with black ink. It can be used as strong heavy bold work, or it can be used as a grey wash to make soft subtle shades.
Both of my parents played an active role in establishing the Wildfire Brand within the Tattoo and Piercing industry, igniting my passion to continue the Wildfire legacy.
More than the procedure, I enjoy working with interesting people. Knowing that I am helping an individual find and express themselves.
