I'm looking to have a couple of tattoos done in this style. It's traditional but modern and I'm struggling to find somewhere that doesn't seem to think that a straightforward traditional Americana image is what I want.

Does anyone know of somewhere/ an artist they would recommend in London that would be confident with this style?

The Family Business in Exmouth Market

You're kidding? This is a very very trendy tattoo style to go for at the moment; Read Skin Deep/Total Tattoo magazines and shop around. London is crawling with tattoo artists who will do what you want and do it very well but do your research first.

Theirs an Exmouth market? Excellent. I bet it's nothing like the indoor market in Exmouth. Sorry fuzzy flu brain bit mad atm

Thank you! Looks like just the sort of place I'm after.

Blimey, that was easy. My part of South London is not exactly riddled with top quality inkers confused

Same here. Family Business. Clearly lots of MN fans!

Whereabouts in South London are you? All the artists at King of Hearts in New Cross Gate are incredibly talented and versatile.

+1 for the Family Business

My Dad (then 61) and I went there for our first (and only!) tattoos

They're terrific

There's a tattooist called Tiggy who has just opened a place in Lee called Briar Rose. My husband has one of her tattoos and it is amazing; you should check her out!

I agree with Sleepthief, King of Hearts is brilliant, the artists are great and the atmosphere is very friendly and comfortable. I've been tattooed there multiple times and can't reccomend it enough.

Check out Andrea Giulimondi's portfolio at The Family Business.

He does that style really well!
