The business was opened in 1994 by Rod Clark, who had previously enjoyed 13 years in tattooing and body piercing.

Over the years, the studio’s artists have won several awards for their artwork from design sheets, which attracts customers from around the globe including musicians, sports, film and tv personalities.

Rod (55) said: “The studio doesn’t name drop or use our custom work to promote the business. I guarantee confidentiality to clients, which is extremly rare.”

Rod has been tattooing for 31 years, with two of the studio’s artists working with him for 17 years and the youngest member of the team, Rod’s son Brock (26), has been tattooing for 13 years having applied his first tattoo on his dad at the age of 13.

After 21 years, Rod still has a passion for designing tattoos for field sport and angling enthusiasts.

Rod said he hopes one day Brock will take over the reins and continue the family tradition. The business also offers body piercing and tattoo removals.
