“My second excursion out of London in two days took me on a jolly jaunt down to Epsom. What can i say about Epsom? It was a sunny day, it has a high street and there were people about. Not as many as Oxford Street i might add so the vibe was less frenetic and tense. And that was the vibe i got when i entered Black Heart Tattoo. I felt relaxed as soon asd i set foot inside. As you’d expect in a tattoo parlour it was adorned with flash hung on the walls, there were display cabinets filled with an assortment of body jewellery, there were flash books, a nice looking sofa and wooden floors and behind the counter three Tattoo chairs awaited warm bodies to impart their heat into their black leather.They did not have to wait too long because myself and another worshipper of the needle were ready and willing to offer our pain to the Gods Of The Eternal Ink! Angel was my guide on this particular journey and a splendid journey it was too. My already epilated thigh was wiped down and shaved again to prepare the flesh for the kiss of steel and then the stencil of my pre chosen design, a butterfly Mandala, was placed with great care on my upper left thigh. With some necessary manoeuvring to clear a mole i was ready!! A pleasant experience on the whole, hardly any pain of great note felt apart from a few uncomfortable twinges near the end of the session at the top of the tattoo, and a dead right leg as well. I fell asleep on two occasions, the coffee i had not doing its job. But Angel was doing hers hence the dozing.
Four and a half hours later i was done!! Very pleased was i with the results and i will definitely go back for more work at a later date. All the staff are easy going and you are made to feel welcome, one of the tattooists, who’s name forget (sorry) went and got me a multipack of hula hoops, which was nice cos i only wanted one bag. Coffee was offered too and welcomed even though it didn’t do much to keep me a wake. My new art was rubbed clean, smeared with ointment, photographed and then covered with protective cellophane. After that i was off back to Gotham, i mean London to prepare for the next days work in a small office with inconsistent temperature.”
I would Recommend this place highly!!!!!
”I first heard about London Tattoo South after looking through a friends timeline on Facebook. I was confronted by an image of an interesting lady by the name of Angel Rose Skull. It transpired that she is a professional body modification practitioner so i had a look at some of her work & i decided that she would be the one that carries out my next piercing. A few months later i decided to pop down to London Tattoo South, which is located a few minutes walk from Elephant & Castle. When i arrived i was confronted by a very clean & welcoming environment, if you had any anxieties or felt intimidated those feelings soon dissolved like a sugar lump dissolved by a drop of warm water.The tattooing area is open plan so customers can see the artists at work whilst they wait,albeit from behind a divider. Luckily Angel was on duty that day so she did do my piercing. The whole experience, carried out in an enclosed & very clean room was efficient, professional & by the book. I felt totally at ease with the experience & Angel involved me in the process & did not put any needles through my skin until i was totally happy with placement. I was happy & she got down to the business of facilitating the insertion of my new Medusa Jewellery. I remember my reaction was to shout ”Fucking Jesus” followed by the flow of adrenalin through my veins. Yes, i was pleasantly invigorated & given a sharp reminder of my own being. After being given advice on aftercare which i followed to the book, i paid & left. Two weeks later i returned to have the jewellery replaced & on a whim i decided to have a tattoo.I’d been pondering for months on what i was going to have done to my left arm in regards to sleeve design & had visited other Tattooists, researched online for inspiration etc, but what i had done at London Tattoo South was not part of my design plans. The night before, images of dragonflies kept flitting through my head & on the spur of the moment i decided to have one tattooed on my arm. So ideas were expressed, drawing done & then after an hour or so of tattooing my new artwork was finished. Again, highly professional, My ideas were taken on board & the overall experience was a good one & I will be popping back to London Tattoo South in the future for more inking. At this stage in my review can i thank Angel & Davide for their work, great job!!!!”
