Photographer & Tattoo Artist


Tattoo Artistry

In 2019 Vicki decided to pursue a life long dream to become a tattoo artist! Spending the year learning tattooing with her mentor, and how to use Machines safety and correctly. Perfecting various techniques and styles, Vicki went on to complete courses, gain certificates in Tattoo Health and safety - necessary to work in a safe environment. Accompanying these new skills with her qualifications as a Graphic Designer and 30 years as a designer and photographer, meant she was ready to start work as a Tattoo Artist on the 1st January 2020.

All of Vicki's tattoos are designed for each of her customers by herself. No design is used twice, meaning every tattoo received by her is bespoke and totally unique to you. There is no extra fee for this service. 

All tattoos are done in a discrete, private, clean and friendly environment, using only the best tattoo machines by FKIrons, and using vegan friendly inks from leading UK suppliers. All customers will receive aftercare advice. Listen to your music, watch tv, play on your phone games or just chat! It's up to you how you relax whilst having your tattoo applied.

Vicki prides herself on being able to offer a discrete and private environment to clients requiring a more empathetic approach to their tattoo requirements, such as scar tissue, mastectomy and Caesarian scar cover ups. 

Quotes are based on an hourly rate or an over all price, depending on which works best for your personal needs.

Please visit Vicki's Tattoo Gallery to see samples of work or visit the Available Tattoos page to see the artwork available as a tattoo, if you are looking for an already created piece of art waiting to be booked. If you wish to have a design based on your own ideas, get in touch!
