Art + Ink

Tora Sumi means Tiger Ink. Last year the Tora Sumi concept was conceived in a Balmain cafe by two good friends. Together they have brought to life an idea and made their dream a reality.
381 Darling Street Balmain has been transformed from an old shop to a contemporary art & tattoo space.

With an eye for detail Ian and Mark have chosen to do something totally different from the sterotypical traditional Tattoo Parlor.

Tora Sumi is a contemporary Art Gallery, with private tattooing rooms that feature a blend of modern and retro cool combined with a retail space offering unique and quirky gifts sourced from the around the globe.

Tora Sumi is a friendly space where all are welcome to be enjoy and be inspired.

OUR MANIFESTO

We believe tattooing is the soulful practice of permanently galvanizing a symbolic idea or belief. It is a holistic experience touching on the emotional, physical, spiritual and mental.


Tora Sumi is a space for the creative collaboration of art + ink that will inspire exciting ideas and outcomes across a diverse range of art forms.

We believe tattooing is the soulful practice of permanently galvanizing a symbolic idea or belief. It is a holistic experience touching on the emotional, physical, spiritual and mental.

It has been said galleries should be lively places, full of energy and new experiences and two-way conversations between artists and viewers. Where art should enlighten, challenge and comfort the senses.
We agree.

And so we will provide a helpful, friendly and empathetic environment where the freedom of expression is encouraged and celebrated.

    At last! I was thinking about getting a tattoo for years but every studio I went into seemed way to "dark". Tora Sumi is amazing. Comfy private rooms, movies to watch and an incredible gallery space too. I felt so safe and actually it was a real time out for me. As a Mum making a decision like this was a big one and they took care of me every step of the way. The staff are wonderful! I will be recommending them to all my girl friends. Finally a place for us girls to feel at home.

    Fantastic experience and nothing like any tattoo parlour I have ever been in. This place is absolutely stunning and the piece I had done on my shoulder well exceeded my expecations with the attention to detail. I am now booked in for the other shoulder and my wife now wants one as well! Make sure you have a good look through the art gallery at the front of the shop as well as there is some amazing prints for sale at reasonable prices. I left with a smile on my face for sure. 5 stars
