Established in 1993, Metal Machine is Cape Town's oldest tattoo studio and prides itself on being one of the best!

As a “commercial/custom” studio our artists are as comfortable and capable of tattooing the smallest kanji on a foot to a full body-fitted phoenix... stencilled or freehand. To say our artists “specialize” in any one style would limit the creativity with which they approach their work.... and your unique tattoo experience. 

Metal Machine's artists have traveled abroad to expand their experience and refine their skills and technical abilities.

Tattooing since 1991, Derek is an award-winning artist, winning recognition at various international tattoo conventions across Europe.
