Hi, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good tattoo artist in the SE1 area? I've got some friends who have got some scary stories about how clean some places are! Thanks.

There is a new one on Riley Road called Dog's tattoo or something! Opened a few months ago. Was previously a barbershop.

Not in SE1 but nearish - I recently had some very delicate/ finely detailed butterflies done on my back by Matteo at Prick (cnr of Old St/ Hackney Road/ Shoreditch HS.) He did a brilliant job and a very nice guy too.

It was all clean, tidy and he made a point of showing me that he was using new needles etc. (The owner Henry Hate is a bit of a celeb tattooist but is very grumpy - best to avoid him! lol)

I would second the Prick recommendation. Henry did mine. He was very good and a really nice guy, although he was a bit funny when I was trying to get an appointment.

A decent artist is worth the short journey to Old Street.
