Meet the Artists

Steve Eglin – Steve has been a part of the tattoo industry for over 30 years. Having run his own studios for 20 years he opened Artistic Tattooing in 1997 and has been running it ever since. Having worked in Europe and the USA, he has become a versatile artist and can cover all styles of tattooing. Particularly old school styles involving a lot of bold lines and bright colours. With being a first generation tattooist, Steve has also been involved in the manufacturing of pigments and machine building. He has also judged at tattoo conventions, the most recent being at the Tattoo Tea Party convention a couple of years ago.

Andrea Fleet – Andrea has been working in the tattoo industry since 2013. She can turn her hand to all styles, but specialises in drawing custom artwork which offers the customer a more personal and unique design. Preferring working to customers demands, specifications, and visions, it is more satisfying bringing peoples ideas to skin. Andrea considers all the tattoos she does equally important and prepares the designs as if it was for her own skin.

We Offer A Diverse Range of Tattoos

Tribal – This type of work was handed down from multiple cultures including Native American, Micronesia, and Polynesian. In ancient times, they would be represent one as an accessory to a certain tribe, also express puberty, a milestone in life or marriage. American Indians form of tribal tattoo was meant to represent culture, ritual beliefs, spirits or nature. Hawaiian tribes carried tattoos as a form of identification, protection or mourning expressions. Many tribes used tattoos to show bravery. Tribal tattoos are usually black in colour and are composed of solid geometric designs. Can also be done in a “stonework effect” or in colour but black is the most common.

Black and Grey – This is when shading is heavily utilised. Black and grey work is typically used to create some type of 3-D effect without using colour.
Highlights are often added using white. White ink can also be used to smooth out sharp transitions between the different shades.

Laser Removal – Tattoo removal has been performed with various tools during the history of tattooing. While tattoos were once considered permanent, it is now possible to remove them with treatments, fully or partially. Before the development of laser tattoo removal methods, commons techniques included dermabrasion, TCA (Trichloroacetic acid, an acid that removes the top layers of skin, reaching as deep as the layer in which the tattoo ink resides), salabrasion (scrubbing the skin with salt), cryosurgery and excision which is sometimes still used along with skin grafts for larger tattoos. Some early forms of tattoo removal included the injection or application of wine, lime, garlic or pigeon excrement. Tattoo removal by laser was performed with continuous-wave lasers initially, and later with Q-switched lasers, which became commercially available in the early 1990s. Today, “laser tattoo removal” usually refers to the non-invasive removal of tattoo pigments using Q-switched lasers. Typically, black and darker-colored inks can be removed more completely.

Cover Up/Rework - Using colour and technique to hide an old tattoo with a new tattoo or just having someone reline and recolour an old tattoo so that it looks as it should. Many make the mistake of using the wrong cover design or wrong colours to cover – causing the old piece to resurface through the new one. Make sure you have an experienced artist do this for you.

Looking After Your Tattoo and Piercing


Healing will vary from person to person. Many different things can determine the actual healing time, such as your health and the aftercare your piercing receives. After having a piercing, it is important to keep the area dry and clean. It is advisable to keep the piercing as dry as possible for at least three days after the procedure. If you have an ear or facial piercing, having baths rather than showers will help to keep the piercing dry. Wash your hands with warm water and antibacterial soap before touching or washing your piercing, and ensure that any clothing and bedding that may come into contact with the area around the piercing is clean. Washing your piercing can be done once or twice a day with a cotton bud soaked in warm water, gently dab the area around the piercing without trying to move the jewellery.


Now you have your fresh new tattoo, you want to take good care of it! From this point on, your artist is not responsible for any infection or problems you may have with your tattoo if you don’t take proper care of it. A really beautiful tattoo can turn into a disaster if the proper aftercare is not taken. Leave the cover on for a minimum of one hour. After that wash the tattoo gently with warm soapy water and pat dry with a clean towel (do not rub). Repeat this process once or twice a day until healed. The tattoo will be peeling like sunburned skin, just let it heal, do not pick or scratch it. Do not soak it in water, no baths, no steam rooms, swimming etc. until healed. Quick showers are fine. Do not expose a new tattoo to UV rays for at least 4 – 6 weeks. The sun could make it fade. To help promote healing you can apply Bepanthen (nappy rash cream available from any supermarket or pharmacy) sparingly to the tattoo after each time you wash it. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
