Police release images of men they’d like to question over fire bombing of Amanda Martin’s Emerald Ink Tattoo

Police are looking to question three men over the fire bombing of a tattoo parlour owned by the widow of assassinated Rebels bikie boss Nick Martin.

Amanda Martin’s Emerald Ink Tattoo in Balcatta was set alight in a suspected arson attack at about 4.30am on October 11.

Images of three men linked to the fire bombing were released by police on Wednesday. The images captured on CCTV show two men outside the parlour around the time of the suspected firebombing.

Both men are wearing hoods and have their faces covered, while one is seen carrying what appears to be a jerry can as the other holds a hammer.

Police are also looking for a third man, seen riding a green and white motorbike.

“Detectives are seeking information regarding two people who were seen in the area around the time of the fire,” a police spokesman said.

“They would also like to speak to anyone who recognises the rider of a green and white motorcycle which was seen travelling in convoy with a white van, believed to be the same van the two men were driving.

“The van and motorcycle were seen travelling together later in the morning in the Armadale area.”

It is understood an internal feud among the Rebels’ ranks, after some defected to Troy Mercanti’s Mongols, is being investigated as a potential reason for the fire bombing.

The fire comes months after Ms Martin’s Obsidian Ink tattoo parlour, on The Broadway in Ellenbrook, was targeted.

In June, two armed intruders reportedly hid outside the store for more than two hours before attacking the business when a tattoo artist unlocked the front door after finishing work with a client.

Kerosene was poured over furniture and ignited inside the store during the 12 minute ordeal, before the offenders fled with $4000 cash.

Mr Martin was executed by a sniper-style shot at the Kwinana Motorplex in December by a former soldier.
