The Download Dog

Old Sarum Tattoo Studio have been inking Download dogs and much more on faithful DL’ers since 2014. We love doing them as well and it’s such a cool thing. I can’t think of any other festivals that have a mascot that’s so popular.

How it works

We are a regulated & licensed tattoo studio, the only difference is that we are in the MAIN ARENA, VIP and Back Stage at Download Festival.

All tattoos must be chosen from the custom designed artwork. You can see these flash sheets ahead of time if you sign up to our newsletter

All tattoos are via a first-come, first served basis. This means get in early to ensure your slot, your tattoo will require Photo-ID.

Make sure you take full advantage of our AFTERCARE SERVICE, it is included in the price of your tattoo, so please do use it. Lastly, make sure you are signed up to our mailing list or the Download Mailing list to keep up to date with any news.

Staying Clean

A lot of the time we’re asked about our equipment, how we keep it clean and how we keep the areas clean and the answer is with a lot of hard work. A lot of people don’t like that we keep our tent empty, but we would not be able to keep the area sanitary if we had everyone walking in – it’s why we have the queue outside and not filling up our reception area.

We have a specific team (BLKclinical) who do all of the tattoo conventions in the country, they keep the area clean and run the aftercare. Their team will be split into two: one half will be dedicated to preventing cross contamination, helping to keep all the stations clean, keeping the floor clean and the other half will just be for the aftercare in a dedicated cleanΒ environment.

We’ll have our aftercare stations again where you can come back: if you get tattooed on the Friday you can come back on the Saturday and Sunday and we’ll clean everything down for you and rewrap you. We’ll be using an awesome new a product that we’ll be wrapping tattoos in: it’s breathable, you don’t have to take it off – it’s another barrier against the elements. It’s a great second skin for everything that Download might throw at you.
