Body Piercing



The Team

I was an Art Teacher for over 10 years before deciding to change my career and follow my true passion in the tattoo and piercing industry. I apprenticed as a professional piercer in Nottinghamshire before making the move to train as a tattoo artist and am loving every second!
I graduated with a Fine Art degree from UCE in Birmingham which then saw me training to teach in Worcester. I was a Secondary Art teacher and Head of House in a top school in a local borough before realising life was too short and I spent all of my spare time (and money!) on my apprenticeships. I hold professionalism and learning at the top of my list and take every care to be as knowledgable as possible for my clients. I am certified in infection control and heathcare training and First Aid and am constantly evolving in my practice to ensure I keep on growing as an artist.
In the past I was a world recognised Fusion Bellydancer and won the title of Miss Fusion Bellydancer UK! I have travelled to teach and perform across the world. My favourite places to work in have been Rome, Buenos Aires, Washington D.C and California where I have many close friends who inspire me daily.I am a massive bookworm and enjoy good food and company. I am a crazy cat lady and mummy to my black moggy Mortie and crazy Sphynx cats, Pumpkin and Luna.
Lately, all of my attention has been on my tattooing career and learning from as many artists and studios as I can by attending lots of conventions and more recently travelling to guest with amazing studios and friends in the UK! So far I have guested at BlackMoon in Frome, The Old Smithy in Leek, Cosmic Monsters Inc in Bromsgrove and Lucky Rabbit in the Jewellery Quarter  with many more planned! I'm also a published artist with many pieces and articles in many issues of Skin Deep and Skin Shots.

I'm a blackwork artist at heart but do enjoy colour. I'm a versatile artist who can do many different styles but my favourite things to do are dark/occult themed pieces (skin witchery!), dark illustrative animals, spooky stuff and ornamental blackwork. I love large scale pieces and making art flow with the body.

Hi! My name is Sam (she/her) and I'm a Tattoo Artist and illustrator based in the West Midlands, UK. I work with a variety of mediums including digital, pencils and paints and more recently polymer clay.

My aim as an artist is to make others happy, this is why I want to make as many different types of art as I can from tattoos to pins, I want to give you representation and expression of the things you love!

Tattooing is my main focus and is what I spend most of my time doing, as well as this I love to create new merch and even take on commission work. My latest project has been creating the illustrations for a children's book with author Ray Price which was an amazing opportunity! I would love to work with more creators, if you're interested you can drop me an email using the contact tab :)!

My passions and hobbies include collecting a variety of things, playing video games and going to concerts! As I'm quite a passionate person I usually base my work upon pop culture themes, particularly video games and horror as these are the ones that inspire me the most.

Petter of dogs. Fusser of cats. Dropper of ink caps. Kicker of buckets. Master of mops.

After studying Illustration at BCU, Amy went travelling the world in search of “purpose”, this purpose however it seems was to collect tattoos from all over Australia. After years of contemplating her “purpose” she was fortunate to land herself an apprenticeship in August 2019.

Amy has been drawing since the age of 8 years old, and she hasn’t allowed herself to stop! Her main focus is currently blackwork, dotwork and linework designs. But she is a versatile individual, always happy to take on a challenge. Some may say she is a maniac, due to her detailed dotwork drawings, as we are all sure you shall agree with.

The way to Amy’s heart is Bourneville, Coffee and Veggie Dippers!
