The Rebels bikie gang has been linked to the firebomb attack.
The second suspected firebombing of a Bibra Lake tattoo business inside of eight months has been linked to an ongoing dispute between two bikie gangs.
Firefighters were called to the property at the corner of Port Pirie Street and Port Kembla Drive just before 10.30pm following reports of a fire.
A Fire and Emergency Services spokesman said the fire was quickly brought under control and was determined to be deliberately lit.

Police arson and organised crime squads will be at the property this morning to investigate the cause of the blaze.
The tattoo business Ink Assault, linked to the Rebels motorcycle gang, sustained about $50,000 damage in the fire.
The same property was targeted with a Molotov cocktail in November last year. Police at the time linked the firebombing to an ongoing dispute between the Rebels and Rock Machine motorcycle gangs, which are currently engaged in a turf war.
The arson squad is also investigating a deliberately-lit fire at a Bayswater car yard in the early hours of this morning.
A FESA spokesman said the fire was reported just before 2.30am and caused about $7000 damage.
