I came to visit my son who lives in Hartlepool, he was having a tattoo done and I wanted to have a cover up as I stupidly had a name on my back. I asked Paul his advise and he recomended a rose. I have to say I am very pleased with his work. To look at it you would not have known that I had anyones name on before. Its a lovely vibrant colour too. very very pleased and would certainly recomend Paul to anyone. I would even travel from Blackburn to Hartlepool (if i ever decided to brave it enough to have another one lol.)

We were both were very impressed with our tattoos. Paul created a bespoke Star Wars tattoo which was just what I wanted. He also personalised a butterfly tattoo for my girlfriend. He was very professional, with great advice for aftercare. Those who have seen the tattoos have commented upon how well they show the colour. We will be back!

I've wanted a tattoo done for years now for my Nanna and gramps. Tiger lillies for my Nanna and my gramps dog tags wrapped round it. Sadly we lost my gramps in September. My hubby had a tattoo portrait done off paul of the late dimebag darrel and I couldn't believe the resemblance. So when my hubby told me he was booking me in for my tattoo for my Christmas present I knew there was only paul I would want to do it. I knew it would be amazing but I honestly got a shock when I seen my tattoo finished.. I can't explain how fantastic it is. It's exactly how I wanted it to be. I can't stop smiling and looking at it.. Thank you so much paul for making this so special and unique for me ???

Paul did fantastic work tattooing my family motto, in Latin, on both forearms. The font is bold, clear and jet black. I could not be happier. I will definitely be going back to Paul for more work soon.
