True Blue is a tattoo and art studio located in the upmarket east of Pretoria. Steering clear of the salubrious back-alley character that many mainstream tattoo shops may have, owners Louis and Meghan Ann Potgieter together with a talented team of tattoo artists have spent years engraving a reputation that is synonymous with class, charm and distinction, not only in the tattoo community but also within the greater art community.
Our studio is a far cry from the more intimidating end of the tattoo shop spectrum, shunning the stereotypical chaotic hovels of the city centre in favour of a more formal structured, energetic atmosphere (we’ll assume you love Rock as much as we do!). Right from the initial design work, to the actual final tattoo, True Blue creates pieces born with passion and skill, pieces created to indeed “last a lifetime”. The business seeks to cultivate a sincere and impartial working relationship between the owners and employees, whilst encouraging each individual’s loyalty, integrity, financial and artistic growth.
True Blue counts amongst its many loyal clients individuals from a variety of professions: doctors, lawyers, psychologists, teachers, journalists, as well as a few local celebrities and sports personalities like Glen Hodgson (The Parlotones), Khotso Mokoena (S.A Olympic triple-jump athlete), Kurt Couto (Mozambican 400m hurdles athlete) to name but a few. Meghan Ann has been featured in publications like the Beeld newspaper for tattooing celebrity portraits. Read more about the True Blue tattoo life here: https://truebluetattoos.co.za/blog/
Tattooing is done by appointment only and, although True Blue’s artists can recreate any flash design with great ease and finesse, clients are encouraged to work closely with the artist to create the custom tattoo of their dreams.
Our Senior Artists
Tattoos are an art form, a way to express ourselves, but they can also help us break out of the boxes we’ve been put in and erase the labels we’ve been given. Tattoos are (or should be) liberating, satisfying and a source of pride. We like to think of ourselves as a family, and as a client, you become part of it too. We get you.
