Although starting late and getting my first tattoo at 22, I was soon bitten by the bug and 1 quickly multiplied, and now there is 40 plus. I always enjoy bright, bold designs that reflect parts of my character, from a love of Disney to dinosaurs to pinups!

She has always had an interest in body adornment, and really enjoys how uniquely jewellery and tattoos can enhance an individual's appearance.

Received a gift voucher for Christmas so booked in and had a piece done on my leg. The staff were helpful. Going back for a check-up on the tattoo in 3 weeks, this sort of aftercare isn’t something I’ve experienced with other Tattoo parlours, very impressive.

I highly recommend this tattoo studio, and will definitely be going back. It has a great reputation around London which is a feat in itself.

Tom McGowan

The studio is meticulously clean and they do their utmost to make you feel comfortable. I cannot recommend Steel Point highly enough. Their creativity, professionalism and skill surpass any other tattoo artist I have been to. I wish I had found them sooner!

I had a full back cover-up after a disastrous piece by another artist plus a thigh piece. Gayle really understood what I wanted to achieve and was able to bring my vision to life.

Tracey Rice

The staff are 100% amazing, brilliant artists who take time and effort to create a custom design that is perfect for you – no detail overlooked. Every member of staff from the receptionists to the tattooists is friendly and put you at ease if you’re nervous.

The aftercare is fantastic and any little query you might have about healing is answered helpfully and promptly. I would no longer go anywhere else but Steel Point.
