Tim was always fascinated by tattoos even from a very young age, by the time he was 14 he already knew that he wanted to be a tattooist. Tim started tattooing aged 18 and was very fortunate to be offered to go and work at Terry Maclaren’s Tattoo Studio in Fulham. Terry without doubt was one of the best traditional tattooists in London producing some of the brightest coloured work around. The time Tim spent at Terry’s was invaluable, not only in learning the skills to apply very strong traditional tattoos, but also what is needed to run a very busy Tattoo Studio dealing with people from all walks of life (literally!).
Tim later went on to open his own studio in Chesham, Buckinghamshire adhering to the same very high standards implemented at Terry’s. The studio was busy from the off and on many occasions Tim would tattoo late into the night.
After 28 years of being in Apsley, Hemel Hempstead (Hemel’s Original Tattoo Studio). We are now opening our Private Appointment Only Studio in Berkhamsted.
