Closed my book again folks. Sorry. Opening again in the new year.

New studio – New name.

Just to give you an official update – I’ve gone into partnership with Mr Paul Tipping. We’ve moved studio (same block, upstairs) Self Preservation is no more, the new name is O’ Happy Dagger. Mr Phil Mann of Mannequin tattoo will also be working here as well as regular guest slots and hopefully a couple of other part time artists, specializing in different styles, ill update as soon as we have confirmation. Thanks for your interest.
