Alchemy Moon is a custom tattoo studio based in Tamworth Town Centre, Staffordshire. Established in November 2016, as originally Dark Steel Tattoo Studio, it was founded by Tattoo Artist Dan Phillips and his wife Rebecca. It began in very humble beginnings in a small room in the Town Centre. 6 months after opening, we moved into a very large "New York Loft" style space and expanded the team to 6, with 5 artists and a shop manager.

The open plan layout of the studio creates a relaxed environment where everybody can chat and feel welcome. You can even chill out in our comfy area. Complete with comfy Chesterfields, the latest magazines and of course, a good cuppa.

With 7 full time resident artists, all specialising in different styles and custom designs, you can guarantee there's an artist here for you. All styles are catered for including cover ups and re-works.

We have an open door policy, so you're always welcome to pop in and have an informal chat about creating your perfect tattoo. We have a super relaxed and welcoming atmosphere but remain extremely professional at all times. We are fully registered and insured and we always maintain the highest of hygiene standards. From the first point of contact, through to aftercare, providing a 5* service and experience for you is of the utmost importance to us. 

DEPOSITS - A non refundable deposit is required to secure your booking. The deposit is transferable if 48 hours notice is given. There is no extra charge for design work but the artists will only design your tattoo if a booking is made and deposit is paid. This is purely due to the fact the artists are booked in advance and work in order of their diary.

The deposits are as follows and apply to all artists: 1-3 hours £30, 4 hour session £50, day session £100. The deposit is then deducted off the total on the day of your appointment.

Deposits can be paid via PayPal, by bank transfer or by popping into the studio. Please fill in the contact form to request payment details.

We accept payment by cash on the day of your appointment for the remaining balance.

We look forward to welcoming you to Alchemy Moon.
