“Cool shop, good music, lots of talented artists who are friendly and professional.
I had work done by @alextfrazer today. It was painless and fast, really satisfied with the attention to detail. Great work, thanks again.” – Sace
Holly pursued art in a more general sense, completing her undergraduate fine art degree and exhibiting anywhere she was allowed, from nightclubs to the Tate. The path eventually led to tattooing by chance, being suggested whilst she was receiving a tattoo. Holly has so much love for the art form and the craft of tattooing and she loves being in an industry where she can learn something different every day, and being trusted to illustrate other people’s stories at Flesh. Holly has always had a keen interest in tattoos, sneaking around to get her back done at 14, and staying up late watching LA ink.

Would 100% recommend and will likely go to flesh tattoo/Holly in the future for any future tattoos if I can!” – Zoe T.
