The mission is to provide you with quality and original tattoo art in a beautifully warm creative space, with the utmost attention to safe and hygienic work practicing by a professional with a down to earth attitude. 

Like all passionate artists, I  spend most of my waking hours refining my skills, and bettering my craft to become the best artist I can be for myself as well as you the client.

At Redbeard Tattoo  the  focus is on formal consultations to make sure that the you, as the client get a completely custom and unique piece of art. This is a appointment only tattoo studio, unfortunately we can not accommodate walk in clients. Enjoy our lounge while I create your custom works!

 I eat, breathe, and sleep tattoos.  Its more than just a tattoo; it’s a piece of art that adorns your body and your lifestyle,it becomes part of your living canvas. 

Not just a great artist and tattooist, but an incredible person. He’s our favourite person.

Rodney van der Bergh

As  the founder and owner of Redbeard Tattoo I have been putting out quality work since the early 2000’s where it is clear to see that  unequivocal precision meets a great passion.  I have been tattooing since the age of 18 and have 17 years of experience in the tattoo industry. Due to this experience I am capable of executing a wide range of tattoo styles and I am always eager to push my own boundaries creatively.
Besides tattooing full time and having owned and managed many of my own studios over my career I also enjoy other art forms with sculpture being my favorite.
