A self taught tattooist, Kat quickly became interested in the realism style and likes to work in both black & grey and colour. The interest became a focus, particularly on portraits for which she has won several awards at conventions around the UK.

Hello I’m Charlie Leigh. I’m originally from London but have now relocated to sunny Blackpool. Back home I studied fine art and photography at Havering College but left to pursue a life of ink. I started my journey in the trendy East London where as a apprentice I had much support from friends family and wonderful clients. As the years went past I have had the absolute pleasure of bringing many unique and exciting tattoos to life on skin and hope to continue for many years to come.

Damian Ellams is a self-taught artist with a natural flair for being creative. He enjoys working in many mediums with photography, drawing, painting and tattooing being the main focus of his creativity which is constantly influenced by his passions in art, gaming, anime, music, film and travel.

Trained locally by several tattoo artists with their own styles, he has been lucky to learn various techniques of tattooing and apply them to his own illustrative bright and bold style of tattooing.

Always learning, he is constantly inspired by family, friends and people he gets to meet through tattooing.

Nat is currently our apprentice but her designs are already proving to be very popular. Her delicate style of fine line and dot work translates beautifully into tattoos. Nat particularly love nature themed designs.

Throughout the year we feature exclusive guest artists. To find out more check the Guest Artists page.

This is an awesome place to get a great quality tattoo, a place where you can trust that they will blow your mind. I had a portrait of one of my sons and I was worried about it looking nothing like him but Kat blew me away with her amazing artwork. I would definitely recommend that you go here for all your tattoos because I will be.

Love, love, LOVE my first proper tattoo done by Kat! She is so lovely too, made me feel very calm and relaxed and talked to me throughout the whole process. I will 100% definitely be back and would recommend Hello Sailor to anyone. I also had piercings done here by Sean, lovely guy, again made me feel calm and relaxed. Very professional people creating amazing art!
