If you often get asked for ID, make sure you bring it with you on the day, otherwise we won’t be able to tattoo you.

We specialise in designing custom cover ups, however what we can achieve will depend on the tattoo you have already, the positioning and the design. We will need a certain amount of flexibility when designing the tattoo to ensure the original design is completely covered up. Pop in to see us for a chat and we’ll be able to advise you of your options.

The only people allowed in the tattooing area are Old Sarum Tattoo staff and customers getting tattooed. We have a comfortable waiting area where friends or family can wait for you, within reason. Please note that children under the age of 18 are not permitted in the shop at any time.
