Ink Maniacs is a site dedicated to providing information and services to people in Melbourne and its environs who are interested in tattooing. It is a resource that assists people in locating a parlour that specialises in the style they are interested in and provides recommendations and ratings of tattoo artists in the region. Users are able to contact the tattoo artist of their choice directly from the site.
Ink Maniacs wanted a site with an artistic flair to reflect the artistry of tattooing. They also required that the site be amenable to use with mobile devices. They needed to provide users with a searchable database of Melbourne area tattoo artists with incorporated criteria selection. The site also required a section dedicated to explaining the various tattoo styles and a blog containing posts that are useful for those interested in learning more about tattooing.
We collaborated with Ink Maniacs to come up with an artistic design and motif that would impress their visitors and showcase their services and we used a responsive design for mobile usability. We also designed membership functionality for them as requested. We designed a searchable database of area tattoo artists with criteria selection functionality for style, location, and rating. Each tattoo artist was assigned a page with service description and contact information. We created a featured artist slider on the home page and a page with tattoo style descriptions. A blog was also included for informational posts on tattooing and to facilitate SEO.
