COVER-UPS & REMOVAL

safe & effective tattoo removal
and cover-ups

LASER TATTOO REMOVAL

Laser tattoo removal is beneficial because it offers a non-invasive, precise, and customizable solution for removing tattoos of varying sizes, colors, and complexities.

Unlike other methods, such as surgical excision or dermabrasion, laser removal minimizes scarring and discomfort while yielding significant results over multiple sessions.

This advanced technology allows individuals to make positive changes to their appearance, whether for personal, professional, or medical reasons, ultimately restoring confidence and a sense of self-expression.

Our studio is fully qualified and insured to undertake laser tattoo removal and guarantee to beat any like for like quote. You will not find cheaper laser removal anywhere else.

We also offer free laser removal sessions on racist tattoos.

Contact us today & ask about our comprehensive tattoo removal service.

COVER-UP TATTOOS

We’re proud to be able to offer heavily discounted or even free coverups to our customers.

Over the years we have tattooed many people for this purpose and will continue to do so. This has always been something that was only ever done by Amy but now all of our artists offer this service!

Mastectomy scars will always be free.

Self harm scars will be discounted on a case by case basis. They will always be fair but will be at our discretion.

We also work with a self harm coverup charity who can provide complete funding for your coverup if you pass their application process so that you won’t pay a penny if you come to us via that channel.

Please message us for any enquiries or if you’d like more details.
