The Tattoo Artists Worth Having On Your Radar

Nearly a fifth of Brits have tattoos, with that figure rising to one in three among under-30s. If you’re thinking about getting (another) one, these are the names to know – from specialists in delicate details to the pros that focus on graphic designs…

Obsessed With You Tattoo at One By One

Instagram: @ObsessedWithYouTattoo

Best For: Single needle work and minimal lines

This Instagram page is filled with plenty of minimal designs, but larger designs are also on the menu, including flower work, abstract drawings and dinky coloured inkings. Whatever you’re after, you’re bound to find something you like.

Rebecca Vincent at Parliament Tattoo

Instagram: @Rebecca_Vincent_Tattoo

Best For: Carefully inked florals and nature drawings

If you’re after something nature inspired with a slightly thicker ink, look to Rebecca Vincent. She’s tattooed a member of the SL team many times, and they can personally vouch for both her technique and gentle approach.

Connor Thomas at One By One

Instagram: @ConzThomasTattoo

Best For: Fine lines and monochrome inkings

We know we’ve already mentioned One By One, but for finely written phrases and seriously neat graphics, we had to give Connor a specific shout out. His attention to detail is so precise and his designs always catch the eye – ideal if you’re looking for something elegant and discreet.

Martha Smith at Gossamer City Project 

Instagram: @MarthaSmithTattoo

Best For: A broad range of ’grammable tattoos 

Most of Martha’s work revolves around sculptures, nature and animals – sometimes even a combination of all three – but her designs aren’t limited to this. You can also expect to browse plenty of smaller etchings that are feminine with a really neat, linear edge.

Emily Malice at Femme Fatale Tattoo

Instagram: @EmilyMalice

Best For: Whimsical and botanical artwork

From tiny script to larger-scale silhouettes, Emily Malice does it all. Most of her work is highly intricate with a lot of black-and-white contrast, but she’s known for her varied style, realistic designs and ability to create mesmerising patterns.

Adam at Vagabond Tattoo Studio

Instagram: @AdamVagabond 

Best For: Unique black and white designs 

Flawless symmetry, geometric styles, fine line finishes… Adam has perfected a technique that’s easily identifiable. In particular, he’s mastered the art of small, faint tattoos with intricate detailing, which is why his bookings fill up so quickly.

Amy Lowdon at Studio Hatch

Instagram: @AmyLowdonTattoo

Best For: On-trend fine line tattoos 

Dainty designs and intricate sketches are what makes Amy such a favourite – with fans including some members of the SL team. Her red ink tattoos are a fun alternative to traditional black – plus, she often posts sketches and unique collections on her Instagram, which can then be requested for recreation when you visit.

Polly (Private Artist)

Instagram: @PollyTatttoo

Best For: Chic, mini designs 

Another SL favourite, Polly’s tattoos are minimalist, quirky and always on-trend. We love how inventive she is with her methods – recently, she took a photograph and stencilled its silhouette to create a tattoo. If you’re after something tiny with fine line details, but a slightly more unique design, Polly is a great choice.
