    What a great establishment. I felt at ease as soon as I walked in the door. I was after a difficult cover-up and Steve done a fantastic job. I’m delighted with my new tattoo. Enjoyed the music too. I think Jodie Marsh missed a big opportunity to learn some great tattooing skills. Can’t wait for my next visit. All the very best to you all.

    I had my first tattoo done by Steve a week ago Saturday and I am so pleased with it. After a lot of back and forth he finally came up with a design I was happy with.
    Skunx was definitely the place I wanted to have my tattoo, not only it is very clean the people are all very nice – yes even Nick ? I had great banter with them all and they made me feel at ease, Steve kept me calm and done a great job on my wrist. Everyone complemented it and asked why it weren’t red and scabby like other peoples, I just said its testament to what an amazing job they do.
    I am planning my next one and Skunx is the only place I’d go to have it done and I’d totally recommend them to anyone thinking of having one done.

    Came and had my first tattoo done by Steve on Saturday. I have to say that Steve was a really friendly welcoming guy who put me at ease straight away, which made the experience very enjoyable.

    The result of the Metallica throwing star design is amazing and have had positive comments from friends and family.

    I know for sure now where I would come to get a second one!

    Hey Steve, once again I wanna thank you for the great job! Only a Clash-fan could have done this this nice. You are the man! I love the way how you guys think with me and took time to create and design the piece. As I said, see you next year for the Elvis Tatt. It was worth the trip abroad! Cheers!

    From the moment I picked up the phone to the moment I left the shop, the Skunx team were extremely friendly and helpful.
    I went in to have a tattoo in memory of my dad who recently passed away. Steve treated the experience with the sincerity and respect it deserved.
    Looking for tattooists without ego and without prejudice? Look no further than Skunx!
