Book A Session

E-mail is our preferred method of communication and we are currently an appointment-only studio

 ***With some exceptions, the artists at our shop will not be able to give you a tattoo unless you book at least 2 weeks in advance***

Tattoos by Shop Owner, Katia Somerville

Katia, is currently only booking new clients with designs that are released in the monthly email newsletter, on the first day of each month.

Each design is only ever tattooed once.

If you are a previous client, feel free to email Katia with your tattoo project idea. Custom projects for previous clients are currently booking approx 3 months in advance.

Every few months, Katia will be taking applications for anyone interested in a ‘Trust Tattoo’. Drawn specifically for the client, Katia will tattoo on you while you are blindfolded and don’t see the design/tattoo until its completion.

If you would like further clarification of this process, or you have question about the shop, please email
