Great experience!

I got a tattoo done by Sophie at Empire Banbury and had a great experience. All of the staff are really lovely and I recommend them to anyone looking to get a tattoo done. I will definitely be returning for any and all future tattoos. The studio itself has a great atmosphere and the waiting area is super comfy. Overall a great place if you're looking to get something done. I would highly recommend Sophie for tattoos, she is very talented artist and a lovely woman.

Really Patient!

I had some tattoos done by Dan today and the whole experience was really great. He was really patient with placing my stencil for some letters because it kept coming out wonky. I really appreciated that because past tattoo artists haven't been that patient. He was really nice and I would recommend him for any fine line work! I'm really pleased with how the tattoos turned out and I'd definitely be back for more!

Took my 14 year-old daughter in yesterday to get her ears pierced for the first time and was made to feel very welcome. I was impressed with how the studio looked and they also have jewellery for sale (not just for piercings but also rings etc). I would definitely recommend if you are looking for professional piercing.
