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.

Just had my cover up tattoo done. The colors are beautiful. Paul is very patient and talks you through the whole process in any amount of detail you might need.

Well Paul is currently doing me a Celtic forearm sleeve, which at the moment is in the heeling stage and everyday is looking better and better. I've still got a lot to do, but I couldn't be more pleased with his work. Check out his website and you will get an idear of his skill. Can't wait to get it finished.

I needed an idea of what to put on the left side of my chest alongside my Wolf whilst in keeping with my existing American Indian design tattoo's, Paul came up with a great idea and we decided on a dream catcher with feathers down onto my side and stomach - absolutely spot on. Paul has done a fantastic job, with great detail as usual, I'm so satisfied with his work, I will be back soon for more
