A little bit about the organisers


Nigel has been tattooing for 30 years now, starting out  
in Falmouth, Cornwall.  This led to another shop in Falmouth, where he met some of his best friends in the business and some great customers. It was at this new studio where Nigel met Roger Rabbitt of Black Lotus Tattoo Machines. In 2002 Nigel and Sue emigrated to  Torreveija, Spain, where they lived for 8 years, running a new studio. It was in Spain where they met Jack of Adventure Tattoo Studios II, before coming back to the UK. Nigel  worked with Kevin Houston of Coventry Ink and Starline Tattoo Supply until he opened his own studio again in Northampton, St. James Road, on the 7th of June 2010. Nigel and Sue pride themselves on quality of their work and the cleanliness and hygiene in their studio. They only use the best single use equipment and most up to date sterilization methods, vacuum autoclave and ultrasonic cleaning. It is usual practice for all customers to be tattooed with new needles. Nigel, Sue and Graham are  professionals who pride themselves on giving the best advice on all styles of tattoo's, from traditional to modern day. Custom work and freehand is available,  your design or theirs! Suns 'n' Roses can  also draw up a design for you.

  Body piercing is also available.


We have a strong troupe this year with Ken Fox

 and his family, Julie, Luke and Alex along with Kerri Cameron

 and Neil Calladine,

along with our helpers and guest riders.

This is a certificate that was given to us on behalf of the help for heroes auction that was at the Northampton International Tattoo Convention of 2012.

577.79 pounds was raised by the charity and Rose who tattoo's on behalf of ink for heroes raised 600 odd pounds for the charity also.

There is also a cricket bat and the graffiti boards for sale. If anyone would like to bid on these then please contact the studio on: 01604 949958 and the money shall be sent to help for heroes.
