Friendship . Love . Truth
FLT Tattoo Studio is a private, appointment only studio in Mulubinba (Newcastle, NSW) in the suburb of Hamilton, founded by Eddy-Lou in 2015.
FLT acknowledges the Awabakal people who are the traditional custodians of this land where we live, learn and work. We acknowledge that this land was stolen and sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respect to the Elders past and present and extend that recognition to their descendants. FLT is committed to honouring the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, waters and seas.
FLT stands for Friendship, Love and Truth. It's a motto used by the Oddfellows, who are said to be a friendly society which promotes philanthropy and whose imagery is commonly used in tattooing (though we have no affiliation with this or any similar organisation). Our name was chosen as a statement of intent to create an honest, friendly, comfortable and welcoming studio environment for clients and artists alike.
FLT Tattoo Studio strives to be an intersectional feminist studio aiming to be an inclusive and safe space for as many people as possible, especially women and marginalised groups such as POC and LGBTQIA+ folk. We welcome all people here, so long as they hold kindness and respect for others.
Being a private studio allows our artists to focus on producing high quality tattoos with excellent customer service in a relaxing environment. Each of our artists make beautiful custom and original pieces in their own unique styles. The studio is open plan but can offer privacy with screens for those who need it. FLT is currently located on the first floor which can make accessibility difficult for some people with mobility difficulties, however, we can organise an alternative arrangement for those who need it.
The studio is open by appointment only.
