Our Tattooists (both male and female) are certified artists, having a wide range of experience in all aspects of tattooing. We are competent in mainstream and traditional styles as well as portraiture and custom work.
We welcome customer’s personalised designs or incomplete artwork.
Our dedicated artists offer unbiased advice to both the committed enthusiast as well as the merely curious
Walk-in tattoo slots are welcome all days of the week but are subject to availability and run on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Appointments are to be made in shop upon paying a deposit to ensure the correct price and time frame for the tattooing can be calculated from viewing the design and its area of placement. This is why we cannot take appointments or give quotations by telephone or email.
We take health and safety seriously for the welfare of all our customers, which is why we have a strict ‘single-use’ on all needles, ink, ink cups used per customer.
Written after-care instructions are given to all of our clients.
We are proud of our work, emphasising customer care from original conception through to completed piece and after-care.
