My name is Ruth and I'm responsible for Vicious Pink Tattoo, along with my partner Al.
Artistic and creative by nature, I have always loved drawing, painting and various crafts, but had never thought of tattooing as an outlet for my hobby. I guess I became interested in tattooing a little late in life compared to most!
While Al has had a long interest in tattoos, I had my first tattoo at the age of 35 (a divorce thing!), and after nearly 3 hours in the chair, swore blind that was my one and only! Arm, back, leg and foot later (some done by me on me) I can confirm I'm hooked, both in getting tattoos and doing tattoos on others.
The act of tattooing is very enjoyable and relaxing (not necessarily the case for the tattooee), and ultimately rewarding when you see the finished result. But I also really enjoy the process of getting the design right. It gets the creative juices flowing, and working with someone to get them their perfect tattoo is satisfying.
I created this site to show my ideas and tattoos ..... so far. Word of mouth is spreading and people interested in working with me to get their dream tattoo is on the increase.
We set up a FULLY LICENSED STUDIO that opened in June of 2012 at 9A Willow Street, Oswestry (just above BETFRED) that adhere's to all the industry health & safety guidelines. Whilst we started out just offering tattoos we now offer laser tattoo removal/reduction.
In September 2016 Emma Jane Beech joined the team, following her graduation in Fine Art from Aberystwyth University and is now an accomplished tattoo artist specialising in blackwork, dotwork and madala designs. Her work continues to inspire and is now award winning. Well done Em!
Hayley Kim Whitehouse joined us in early 2018 and has been developing her skills through her apprenticeship and junior positions. Sadly, she has now chosen to move on to pastures new and leaves us in November 2020. We wish her all the best.
As one door closes, another opens. As of September we were joined by Sam Evans who has 10 years experience in tattooing and joins us from Stained Class in Shrewsbury. He's already settled in really well and producing some cracking tattoos.
This continues to be an exciting venture and I hope you will visit us next time you want one of our above services.
