Max chater

As a kid, Max worked in his father's (Alex "Painless" Chater) studio, and began tattooing 1959.

He started at Paddington and, after Alex retired, moved to Shop 46 Lankelly Place Kings Cross in 1978. In 2005 the store moved around the corner to its present location on Darlinghurst Road. Max has won numerous awards and accolades - "Too many to mention," he says.
