Set over two sites Middlesbrough and Durham, our extensively trained desk teams are here to assess the best artist based on your design needs. From the first enquiry you can be assured you are getting expert advice from a team with years of experience. We consider everything from your body contour to ensure best tattoo flow, to making sure the position and size of your tattoos compliments your body for the best end result and most aesthetically pleasing.
We have a mixed skill set within the studio with all our artists specialising in their own style. Unlike other studios who may attempt other styles to please their customers, we don’t. We are passionate about picking the right artist for the job regardless of financial needs and are able to provide finance so you dont have to compromise your design. We aim to please our customers first and foremost and we will not undertake a job we don’t think will look amazing. We also aim to please our artists by finding them the right client so it’s a win win.
A tattoo done by us is more than just a tattoo. Add your own personality and style to be noticed for a lifetime, tell your story through your tattoos, remember loved ones, highlight your body, grow your confidence, impress your friends.
We have partnered with Payl8r to enable us to offer customers the ability to apply for finance for their tattoo.
