About Martin And Dave
Art and drawing have always been a passion of mine. I had my first tattoo as a teenager and that’s where my love for the art form developed.
I have over 10 years experience within the Tattoo Industry. I specialise in Black and Grey Realism but I can turn my hand to most styles. I have a passion for all things Skull & Horror related. I take on work of all sizes , from small simple line work right up to full back pieces. I do scar cover ups for people who have had surgery, people who have self harm scars and those who want to hide stretch marks.
As the Owner of Ink Masters Tattoo Studio , I pride myself not only on my own work but the work of the other Staff members. We are a Team, we work together, for the client at all times. Client confidentiality and care are extremely important to us.
For us, the whole experience of having a tattoo is just as important as having the tattoo itself.
Hello , I am Dave , the Junior Artist at InkMasters
I have been drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil and have always dreamt of having a career in the the arts. I have always loved tattoos (my first one at age 17) and now I have combined the two to make my dream a reality. I have multiple qualifications in Art (A-Levels in Art, Illustration and Graphic Design) and won several awards in the past.
After over 15 years as a successful customer service/people manager I decided to make the change and took my portfolio to the amazing team at Inkmasters. We hit it off immediately and they were fantastic from the very first moment in the way they mentored me and helped my become the tattoo artist I am today.
I specialise in black/white realism work but love the challenge of bringing peoples designs to life no matter how big or small. There is no better feeling than seeing a client fall in love with the art we create on their body.
I am so excited about the future working with such amazing people in such a fantastic studio. I feel truly blessed to be part of this team and to be working in my dream job!

Tattooing High Fading Areas
We will tattoo hands , fingers and feet but these areas will always be advised against due to how quick they fade. If you decide to go ahead with a tattoo in these areas please note that we do not offer any free touch ups. There will be a minimum fee for this.
How you look after your tattoo will depends how well it heals.
It is normal for your new tattoo to feel warm , almost like sunburn . Your artist will dress it for you in a thin film once it is complete.
After 2 hours , remove this covering , gently wash with a small amount of antibacterial soap and warm water. Pat dry with a clean paper towel. Apply a thin layer of aftercare cream. We suggest Tattoo Goo which is available to purchase from the studio.
Repeat this process for 2 weeks.
Over the first few days it will feel sore , it may be slightly red and tight. Keep it clean and let the air get to it. Avoid sunbathing, laying in hot baths, sun beds and saunas for a minimum of 2 weeks.
After a few days it may start to become dry and have a few flaky scabs . This is a completely normal part of healing. A tattoo when first done is dark , as it heals it will look like it is fading , it isn’t . It will darken once as the scabs have healed and your real tattoo will appear !
Do not pick the scabs . This will pull out the ink and you will he left with patches.
If you notice any green fluid , swelling , if it stays hot for more than 3 to 4 days or you are concerned please contact your artist or your GP to rule out infection.
Please follow the aftercare given by your Artist exactly.
