Five of our favourite tattoo studios in Sheffield

Before committing to the ink, it’s important to pick the right studio for you…

Getting a tattoo can be both an exciting and a nerve wracking experience. It’s important to make sure you have researched which tattoo studio is going to work best for you and create your perfect piece of body art. Luckily for us, Sheffield has plenty of well respected studios. Here are the Sheffield Tabs five favourite.

The Workhouse

The Workhouse is a custom tattoo studio located in Kehlam Island. They have eight unique artists, who all offer extraordinary designs – in a range of styles. They produce ranging from traditional designs and black work to surrealist and dot work. Their team have a relaxed mentality, which may be exactly what you need if you’re feeling apprehensive about getting your first tattoo.

Golden Heart Collective

Where: 918 Ecclesall Road
Instagram: @goldenheartcollective

Golden Heart Collective is a small, electric tattoo studio found on Ecclesall Road. Whilst it’s a small team of four artists, they are always posting new and exciting designs onto their Instagram page. Something that allows this studio to stand out, is their vintage jelly bean machine filled with capsules, holding surprise tattoo ideas. The machine is sectioned into four different parts, one for each artist. So, whilst you can choose artist and style, the tattoo is unknown. This is a great idea for when you’re feeling impulsive and perhaps don’t want to think too much about your tattoo design.
