Armand Groesbeek started the project in September 2019 with a dream of not only creating the first published tattoo magazine in South Africa, but also to grow and promote the South African tattoo industry.

Frederik Fourie just started his career as a graphic designer and grabbed the oppertunity to do the layout design with both hands.

These two people started the magazine with alot of determination and nothing was going to stand in their way, not even a sudden 500% increase worlwide in paper tax. Armand had to hustle and get an investor to make this dream a reality, and today after alot of battles and struggles, we present to you TATMAG tattoo culture Magazine.
