Archangel 1608 Tattoo Studio

Due to the nature of the business, we can't take bookings or give out quotes over the phone - we need to see exactly what we're dealing with to give us an idea of size, time, etc. When you do come in, please bring as much reference as you can - if you can't find any, we'll help you once you're here, but it may take a while. Please note, there is a deposit for bookings and for drawing/preparing a design, which does come off the price of your tattoo.

Tattoo Dave


David has been tattooing since 2001, and specialises in realistic black and grey work, tricky cover up tattoos, pin-up tattoos and most large scale pieces. Check out his album for examples of all this, and have a look at our Facebook page for the most up-to-date stuff.


Div Reed


Div has been here for 4 years now, and continues to prove he's one of the best

up-and-coming tattooists in the country.  He has an easily identifiable style, particularly

his amazing black and grey work, as well as his great script tattoos!

Archangel 1608 is a custom built, health authority licensed tattoo studio, specifically  designed for your comfort while being tattooed. The fact it looks fucking great is purely coincidental...

Pretty much all of what we tattoo now is custom, one-off pieces. All you need is a rough idea, a few reference pictures of tattoos, or even better photographs/paintings/drawings of whatever you want tattooed. David or Div will have a talk throughwhat you want, and put a unique design together for you.


Please note that whilst we are happy to use pictures of other people's tattoos as inspiration, we won't simply copy them - everyone deserves a unique, one-off tattoo. Our job is to make sure that you don't just have a tattoo you're happy with, but one that you're proud to have and can't wait to show off!
