(pics/video) --- Former Bandidos bikie enforcer Toby Mitchell woke to find his tattoo parlour riddled with bullets this morning.    

The notorious City of Ink studio in South Melbourne was hit with at least five bullet holes across the shopfront and door in a drive-by shooting.  

It's not the first time the 43-year-old has had a run-in with drive-by bandits, having survived two shooting attempts on his life. 

The culprits disappeared from the scene and are now being hunted by police.

Mitchell enlisted former Richmond AFL star Jake King to run the tattoo studio while he spent time in prison for drug and weapon possession in 2016.

King sat inside as forensic police analysts and detectives police investigated, the Herald Sun reported.    

Ironically, the former gold-toothed bikie announced plans to challenge Victoria Police over its tough new gun laws last month. 

Mitchell was among 85 'high risk' people to be issued with a firearms prohibition order, giving police the power to raid and search him without a warrant. 

He described the order as harassment and accused police of using him to 'erode everybody’s rights'.   

The Victoria Police armed crime squad are probing the shooting and are yet to issue a statement.
