Wouldn't you just love to step into this awesome 50s caravan for your next ink??
Welcome to the world of Mimsys Trailer Trash Tattoo.
This young tattoo artists name is up in (starburst!) lights these days, and deservedly so.
Describing her style as "a bit old skool, a bit new skool and a bit cute", Mimsys stunning work has built her a massive following both locally and interstate.
I'll get to the artwork shortly, but first let's take a look around her studio. After working from home for the past 14 years, sheer demand led Mimsy to create from scratch a massive, brand new, 50s-themed studio where she is able to take on an apprentice and host regular guest artists.
Can you tell she's a 50s-loving girl at heart?? The new studio at Brisbanes Archerfield is to die for. Ensconsed within a large shed, the lower floor is home to her 2 caravans which are in fact mobile tattoo studios, an enormous tiki bar and lounge area, flamingos, an arbor, and lots of 50s outdoor furniture, all set on the largest amount of astro-turf I've ever seen in one place.

Stepping throught the reception area, we come to the waiting nook, shown above. This is where you sit and relax in style, just before getting inked.
Speaking of waiting, you'll need to be a patient person if you want to sport some of Mimsys work; this incredible lady is completely booked out until December!
Mimsys Facebook Page is where you can see and read all about her. The tattoos below are just a few that I chose to share with you here, but if you go to her FB page there are literally hundreds to peruse.
If you're keen to check it all out, Mimsy is having a HUGE open day tomorrow.
It'll be a grand day with live bands, food and even a jumping castle for the kids. Probably a great day to dress in your best 50s gear and take the hot rod out for a spin!
Living up to her name, here's Mimsy 'trashin' it up' at Greazefest 2012.
