Looking for a good tattoo artist in Hobart

by bjmoose

Dear Folks -

I will be touring around Tas April 15-26 and will be in Hobart April 21-22. I like to get a tattoo done when I travel to distant lands as a mememto(I live in the Canadian Arctic) and was wondering if someone out there could recommend a good (reputable) tattoo artist or studio in Hobart.
Thanks!

Checking it out for you. The world isn't ready for the sight of my decorated body, so I have no first hand experience, but I will ask around. I know of several tattoo parlours, but I will find a good one for you,
cheers,
Sharon

Where is the best place on the body to get tattooed with a map of Tasmania?

Searching madly for a tactful answer to this one, but I think that you are right up there with aussie slang and all ready know the answer, you wicked man ;-)
Half of the population doesn't need that tattoo to remind them, but it sure makes it difficult to check directions in heavy traffic.

Travel Tips for Hobart

Hobart's Fishing Community

by ATXtraveler

Because of its location on the Derwent River and with easy access to the Southern Ocean, you can see why Hobart developed a large fishing community. From personal watercraft loaded with trout gear, to yacht charters for deep sea fishing, to commercial lobster boats, the harbor downtown is a great place to see the fishing lifestyle.

You can definitely benefit from the hard work of these hard working fishers... just go down to one of the great restaurants and order yourself a plate of fish, served anyway you like!

For the adventurous souls out...

by Krystynn

For the adventurous souls out there in cyberspace, if you come to Tasmania, you MUST go white-water rafting. Otherwise, what's the point of coming???

More details later....

Salamanca Place

by Kate-Me

The buildings here were originally Georgian warehouses, built between 1835 - 50. There is much colonial architecture remaining still intact in the older areas of Hobart.
Now the buildings in Salamanca Place are home to bars, cafes and Australian and international restaurants, and quality arts/crafts centres, souvenir shops and more. It's quite a unique place to visit.

On Saturdays Salamanca is home to Tasmania's largest outdoor market - a mixture of crafts, local wares and other unique goods. Don't miss this one!

what to do, what to do in...

by mocca

what to do, what to do in Hobart, there is the Cadburry chocolate factory, for the beer lover the Cascade breweries.
On saturday Salamanca market is the place to be, with an excellent crafts market.

HUON TRAIL - FOREST & HERITAGE CENTRE

by imstress

I could not believe when i see the price tag.

The table and bench is not affordable by my standards.

I could only take a pic of it to bring back home with me.

Excellent workmanship.
