Phresh Ink was founded in 2013 by Owner and director Josh Kuhne. Josh found his love for tattooing through graffiti and art when he was a kid. Having been in the tattoo industry for over 10 years Josh has met various tattoo artists, travelled the world tattooing, worked at many tattoo conventions before settling in his home town and building Phresh Ink. Phresh Ink has been at Helensvale for the past 8 years and started with only 3 artists. Fast forward to 2021 Phresh Ink has recently relocated to Surfers Paradise which is where 14 artists now call Phresh Ink “home”. Josh’s wife, Amy who has worked behind the scenes for the past 7 years, recently opened Phresh Tattoo Removal. The culture of the studio has always been “family” and Josh prides himself on good customer service and affordable, high quality tattoos.


Over the past two years Josh has taken a step back from tattooing to pursue a new found love for mixed martial arts cage fighting. Currently undefeated Josh’s passion for the sport flows through the doors of Phresh Ink. If you would like to support Josh through his fight career Phresh Ink stocks supporter t-shirts and you can watch his fights on eternal or UFC fight pass.

Book a Complimentary Consultation

Phresh Ink offers complimentary consults 7 days a week with all of our artist’s in house at Phresh Ink. These consults happen in the morning in-between 9.30am and 10am before our artists begin with their tattoo clients. These consults allow you to have uninterrupted time with your artist to go over your ideas, show them images, hear your artist’s opinion and get a rough quote. This usually lasts around 15 – 20 minutes all depending if the design is straight forward or if you are looking for something more custom. The consults have no obligation but do require an appointment to secure, as there are limited slots for the morning with each artist.
