Welcome to Wabori House Tattoo, a Sunshine Coast tattoo shop in a serene, nature-inspired setting. With over a decade of experience in the tattoo industry, our tattoo artists have built a reputation for delivering the highest quality, expert tattooing, catering to a wide range of styles and body placements.

All Tattoo styles welcome

Although we specialise in Japanese style tattooing, all of our artists previously worked in bustling street shops. They are skilled in a variety of tattoo styles, including traditional, Japanese, fine line tattooing, black and grey, color, and more. We work closely with our clients to understand their ideas and preferences, translating them into stunning works of art that you'll be proud to wear forever.

Appointments at our studio are by booking only, ensuring that each client receives the dedicated time and attention they deserve. We understand that sometimes inspiration strikes unexpectedly, which is why we occasionally have same-day appointments available. Please complete the booking enquiry form to enquire. Our flexible scheduling aims to accommodate your needs while maintaining the highest level of service and care.

We are excited to have you visit our Sunshine Coast tattoo studio. Surrounded by nature, you can enjoy a peaceful atmosphere while getting your next tattoo. We’re committed to providing you with a positive and memorable experience.

Our artists

Eli Ferguson

Raised on the Sunshine Coast, tattooing has taken Eli around Australia and Japan to learn from the best and hone his craft.

12 years ago Eli commenced his tattoo apprenticeship in Brisbane under Australian Japanese tattoo heavyweight Brendan O’Connor. Working beneath Brendan, one of Australia’s greats, laid the foundations for Eli’s culturally respectful approach to making Japanese tattoos.

It was through Brendan that Eli was introduced to Japanese tattooist Satoru Koizumi (One Shot Tattoo) and embarked on his first trip to work in a Japanese Tattoo Shop in Okinawa in 2015.

Edward Neo

Edward is a Singaporean tattooer who has been tattooing on the Sunshine Coast for over 6 years. He sets his focus on creating large scale, impactful, and long lasting pieces that speak beyond aesthetics for his clients.

Being of Chinese descent, the oriental culture is deeply rooted in his upbringing. While he takes on a variety of styles, his passion gravitates towards the traditional form of Japanese tattooing, thus building his foundation around this style.
