The Tattoo Process at Inkscape

Once we have finalised the design, it will be will be transferred to your skin using a stencil. At this stage we check together the placement and position on your body. If you wish the stencil to be moved this will then be adjusted to your liking. 

Once we are all happy with the placement of your tattoo. We get tatttooing! Once the tattoo has been completed we will clean away any excess ink for you to have a look at your new tattoo, it will then be wrapped with a surgical Clingfilm like bandage and we will explain to you the aftercare procedure. 

We provide natural healing products with each tattoo and an aftercare leaflet. So when the client leaves they have everything they need to care for their tattoo until fully healed. We are always available for advice and any touch-ups (except hands and feet) are free.

About Lou Lou

Lou comes from a creative background, from early days of being a young mother she painted on glass, mirror and other mediums as a hobby for 20 years. 

In the last 7 years an interest in tattooing seemed a natural progression moving away from canvas and paint to skin and needles....and putting to use the years of creativity Lou began the process of learning how to tattoo. Seeking advice and tuition from London Tattoo studios who were pioneers of the dotwork technique. she then began to learn by tattooing her own leg. 3 years later in 2014 Lou made the brave and bold decision to open her own studio. Inkscape is the result of that endeavour 

Inkscape has been open now for 3 years and they have created a great reputation for customer service. Many of the tattoo styles on offer here are fine line detailed shaded work with mandalas and mehndi styles and also dotwork . Lou thrives when creating beautiful intricate delicate designs and people travel far and wide for her specialist style
