How does it work - what happens next ?

Just get in touch, If you know who you would like to tattoo you, great! If not do not worry, we can select the right artist for the job based on your preferred style. Our receptionist Sophie will receive your request and liaise with the artists on your behalf. Sophie will then come back to you with the artists suggestions, ideas, an estimated quote and the next available slots, or if you prefer she can arrange a consultation for you and your artist to discuss all this further. Once you have chosen an appointment to suit you we ask you to provide a cash deposit to secure your chosen slot.

On the day of your appointment your artist will go through the design with you, giving you a chance to see how it will look and make any adjustments. Your artist will then place a stencil, or draw a map of the design, onto your skin so that you can see the placement and size before they begin. Throughout the tattoo you are welcome to take breaks when needed, we offer complementary tea and coffee throughout the day and have a smoking garden if needed, if your sitting a day session there is plenty of places locally to grab some lunch.
