“I've had over 10 tattoos done by Samma over multiple day sessions and I have to say he is the best artist I have ever had”
I've had over 10 tattoos done by Samma over multiple day sessions and I have to say he is the best artist I have ever had. I couldn't recommend him more. He manages a fine balance of relaxed conversation and utmost professionalism whilst maintaining a spotless and inviting studio. He uses premium products and tailors them to individual needs. The pre and post tattoo care he provides is brilliant and my tattoos have healed perfectly. He has addressed any aftercare issues I have had quickly and without making me feel like a burden on his time. Furthermore, he has an unlimited supply of "Your Mum" jokes. 11/10 would return.
“you have given me something I wanted for the last 30 years!!”
I can't tell you how happy I am with my tattoo, it's fucking fantastic! I knew you were good from your gallery of photos I've looked through, but now in my eyes you are a friend for life. You have given me something I've wanted to have for the last 30 years!! I've not stopped showing people and quite a few have asked who did the work, have highly recommended you.
Was a real pleasure to meet you and all your crew in the studio, I couldn't have been made more welcome, really appreciate that.
“I am super in love with the end result”
I had an excellent experience getting tattooed at this place - fantastic tattoo and first-rate customer service.
It was my first tattoo, so I was quite nervous about the process and particularly about hygiene, and so asked a lot of questions. The artist was happy for me to come in several times before the tattoo, and she answered all my questions in full and made me feel at ease.
On the day of the tattoo, she first showed me the needles she would use and showed me that they were sealed, and that they were in date. She was very chatty and friendly throughout the process of the tattoo and made sure I was comfortable throughout.
She talked through the aftercare with me and again was happy to answer my questions in the days after the tattoo.
Finally, and most importantly, I am super in love with the end result - a honey bee tattoo - it completely lives up to my expectations.

“It was a great experience, he really focused on getting it right”
I've had my first tattoo done my Mike a couple of days ago. It was a great experience, he really focused on getting it right even though it took more time than anticipated. But it didn't matter, we had a really good chat, and I didn't have to do much :) and the result is great!! (and It's healing nicely too.)
The place is clean and very friendly- I would definitely recommend
