Back to Paul this week and he delivered me his own superb tattoo of a silhouette mountain background scene, with fantastic detail which fits in perfectly with my existing native indian tattoos. This tattoo above all has made me so happy, well done Paul, cant thank you enough

Paul did my first tattoo on 25th October. I wanted something in memory of my brother. I went to see Paul for a consultation and I couldn't of been happier. He asked about Michael, things he liked and then designed me my tattoo and I absolutely love it!!! He was honest from the start and put me at ease when I went in as to say I was bricking it is an understatement!! I will definitely recommend wishful inkin!!

have being going to Paul for many years now and always been totally satisfied. Paul has a great mind for what looks best, you go to Paul with an idea and he takes it from there. His last two old school tattoos are class and fit in perfect with my native Indian theme. I also love his choice of music and Paul always makes you feel totally at ease, a true professional, will be back soon, thanks again paul

Started getting my Tattoo's from Paul in 2012 and wont go to any one else great guy and a fantastic Tattoo artist. He has just started a ''FULL SLEEVE COVER UP'' that i had done many years ago by another tattoo'ist. A crazy journey that I would only trust Paul in making it work and ''NOT LOOK LIKE A COVER UP''
