One customer wrote: “Brilliant experience, 10/10 would recommend.
The place and people are very welcoming, a friendly open space. There's art all over the walls and plenty of possible future tattoo designs to look at whilst waiting. The appt was exactly the time asked for. The first thing to note is the cleanliness; incredibly high standards. I had my tattoo done by Josh and felt very comfortable and calm despite it being my first tattoo.
“Love the design and all is healing very well. Can't wait to go back soon!”
