Gill

I myself would like to express huge thanks to all my amazing colleagues, friends and clients for enabling me to make a career out of what I love! 20 years experience tattooing now and I still love it.

I have a passion for creating large scale Japanese influenced pieces, however I enjoy embracing all styles and love the opportunity to work with the ideas my clients present to me, to create something personal and significant for them.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN I DESIGN MY OWN TATTOO?

Of course! We specialise in custom tattoos, and can design your tattoo from an idea or an image you already have. Bring in any ideas you already have and we can discuss how it could work as a tattoo.

WILL IT HURT?

Pain is subjective, and everyone feels it differently. Some body parts feel more pain – we’ll discuss this with you and options for limiting your pain when we have our pre tattoo consultation.

IS IT SAFE?

Our studio works under international health and hygiene sterilisation procedures, and we use vegan friendly inks. Aftercare will be discussed with you to keep your tattoo in top condition.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

That depends on the complexity and size of the tattoo. Some take from 30 minutes, with a full sleeve or back taking multiple sessions to complete. We will agree a schedule with you at our initial consultation.

HOW CAN I PAY?

We accept cash (correct change would be appreciated!) or internet bank transfer. All our artists are all independent contractors, so you will pay them directly. All costs will be agreed before we start any work and receipts can be provided.
