What I Do

I'm a versatile tattooist and enjoy working in colour as well as black and grey. Each piece I tattoo is customised and personal to you. I never tattoo the same piece twice.

Whether it's a new piece, an addition to your existing tattoos or a cover up. Feel free to contact me with your ideas.

I also create artwork for prints and commissioned, one off pieces in a range of mediums.

FAQ

The Tattooing Of Minors Act 1969 makes clear that it is a criminal offence to tattoo anyone under the age of 18 in the UK. Valid ID (must belong to the person getting tattooed) is required.
No. I use commercial grade powder free black nitrile gloves which are latex free.
You can not get tattooed if you
are pregnant or breastfeeding, suffer from seizures or have any conditions which impair your immune system.

You should consult your doctor and provide a doctors note if you
suffer from diabetes, haemophilia, a heart condition or take any blood thinning medication.

You are obliged to inform me if you

Yes. It is a legal requirement that all premises and individuals providing tattooist services are regularly inspected and licensed with their local authoritiy. You can find out more here.

Make sure you eat something at least 2 hours before your appointment and bring a snack if your booking is more than a few hours long.

Drink plenty of fluids before, during and after your tattoo but avoid alcohol for at leas 24 hours before your appointment. I won't be able to tattoo you if you're drunk (or on drugs).

It's important that you don't take aspirin based pain relief products near to or after the time you get your tattoo. Aspirin thins your blood so you might bleed more than usual making it difficult to tattoo you.
Yes, you can bring one guest with you. I ask that your guest respects my studio and the space as this is my working environment. I am unable to accommodate more than one guest or any children.
