About

The Dark Essence Tattoo Gallery is Melbourne’s new premier studio.
Established in Richmond in 2018, with a vision to build a tattoo studio that is inspiring, creative and most importantly, hygienic. The space is inspired by an unworldly, gothic and luxurious feel which is emphasised by quality, bespoke and antique pieces.
