America's Ink TV franchise coming to Bondi

CHANNEL 10 will produce Australia's own version of Miami Ink.

Filming starts in January on Bondi Ink, which will star American tattoo artist Tommy Montoya and Perth native Mike Diamond, who both currently star on NY Ink.

"I've thought about doing something like Bondi Ink for almost eight years," Diamond said.

"Now that we have everything in place, I know we are on to something really special that people all over the world are going to love."

Cameras will capture the busy summer season at the Bondi Beach tattoo store and feature some of the country's top tattoo artists as well as special guests.

The show, which will air on ELEVEN next year, is currently casting for tattoo clients aged 18 and over.
