Meet our tattoo artists

The tattoo service at Lighthouse includes an initial consultation to discuss the design, location, size and cost. We can resize your design if you’d prefer a bespoke tattoo. Alternatively, feel free to browse our racks and flash books on display. We’re certain we can work together to design a tattoo you’ll love.

Aftercare instructions are given and follow-up appointments will be arranged, if needed. Prices start from £50 and increase to £400 per day session (5 hours).

Appointments are not always necessary and we offer a walk in service on Saturdays. Please note: You must be at least 18 years of age to get a tattoo. We accept a passport, provisional/driving licence or government sponsored ID schemes as proof of age.

VEGAN INK. Tattoos are usually far from being vegan. They often contain: Gelatine (animal hooves) used as a binding ingredient, Glycerin (animal fat) used as a stabiliser, Bone char (soot form burnt animal bones) in black ink, Shellac (beetles) as a binding ingredient, Indigotin (slugs) in green pigment, Concheal/Carmine (boiled insects) in red pigment. Vegan transfer paper often contains Lanolin (sheep’s wool).

At Lighthouse we use vegan alternatives to these.
