When I got my first tattoo done, I made sure to do loads of research to find a place I could trust and Naresh's tattoo studio Flamin' Eight is definitely that. Tucked away halfway between Camden and Kentish Town, it looks permanently shut but if you're brave enough to open the purple door you'll find a friendly, beautifully decorated tattoo studio where the well-informed (and well tattooed) girl on reception is always willing to answer any questions you might have, help you out with prices and advise you on the best designs and colours to suit your personal needs.
I have been tattooed by two out of the three artists there and all three times they took my wobbly sketches and turned them into beautiful works of art that I always get positive comments on.
I recommend this place to any first timer who wants a good first experience, or any ink junkies who want their designs realized and executed in unique and original ways.
This is where I popped my tatoo cherry! After researching online for the best place to get a tatoo in London where I wouldn't end up with hepatitis I chose Flamin' Eight. They have the artists portfolios online so you can see their work and choose who you want before you go in. Do book in advance because slots to tend to book up. The receptionists was very nice and friendly, and helped me make my tatoo the best it could be. She was also very insistent on how I took care of my tatoo which I was very appreciative of. Yes of course it hurt, but only on the bone really, and it didn't make me cry or anything. Electrolysis is way more painful FYI. My artist wasn't exactly chatty but he did a great job and now I have a great tatoo that I love in memory of my dog Cali who I had for 15 years and died on Christmas Day 2007. I would definitely go back for my next tatoo.
