Cape Town Tattoo

First generation Italian, Milo “Mr. Lucky” Marcer lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa. After studying fine Art at Wits Tech, Milo worked as a designer and Illustrator in the Advertising industry, all the while tattooing.

Milo has devoted 30 years to the art of tattooing, has won awards and has been published in several local and international magazines. Milo has worked all over Europe and the United States. Milo is very inspired by  the old tattoo masters like Bert Grimm, Sailor Jerry, Doc King, Don Ed Hardy and many others, however he always retains his illustrative roots and with his creative twist, all his images remain intriguing. It would be wrong to pigeonhole his style as it is ever evolving and changing, transforming into fabulous works of art in his clients skin.

Mr Lucky's

Bronwyn “Lady Luck” Esmonde-White discovered her passion for tattooing at a very young age, while watching her father get tattooed. At the age of 17, she began frequenting tattoo parlors and getting tattooed herself, adding fuel to the fire, and at 19 she set out to start her apprenticeship in her hometown of Port Elizabeth.

Since finishing her apprenticeship she has worked in Port Elisabeth and spent the last 6 years of her career working in Johannesburg, Gauteng. With over a decade’s worth of experience behind her, her dark and macabre sense of humour is reflected in her own pieces and designs, and she is versatile enough to adapt to the client’s vision.

Well established within the creative hub of Cape Town, Ronnie “Black Crow” Belcher is known for his wide creative skill-set which includes photography, music, film-making, and design. As a multi-award winning jewellery designer, the progression from adorning the body with gems and precious metals to permanent works of art was natural.

Having started his tattoo apprenticeship under the masterful guidance of seasoned tattoo artist Milo “Mr Lucky” Marcer at his Cape Town Tattoo Studio in Woodstock, Ronnie looks forward to expanding as an artist in the expressive industry of tattooing.

Nicci Kruger moved to Cape Town in 2012 and as Milo's life partner, has spent 5 years watching and learning from him, but did not apprentice.

She now has grown in confidence and is eager to become the next young artist to come out of the studio, and has begun her apprenticeship.

She has not begun working in human skin as yet, but there are some oranges and little piggy skins that she has been working on.

Hours: Tuesday to Sunday.
