Cheltenham tattoo studio celebrates 10 years

Cheltenham's multi-award-winning tattoo studio, Tokyotattoo Studios, is celebrating 10 years in business.

Starting out with one artist, the studio at The Courtyward in Montpellier now has six resident artists and many regular guest artists from around the world. Currently up to 20 artists a year work from the studio.

Deano Jouni, founder of Tokyotattoo, has invested over £200,000 into the design and aesthetic side of the studio, and continues to look for ways to improve both the studio and customer experience.

Deano said: "I love tattoos, but I didn't like tattoo parlours. So, 10 years ago, I created Tokyotattoo Studios. Fast forward to now and we've designed a studio with a visual style that transcends the clichés of the tattoo industry, alongside a team of world-class resident artists."

To celebrate the anniversary, Tokyotattoo is holding a Celebrations & Collaborations day on Saturday November 5 from 12pm to 8pm. Some of Cheltenham's best local businesses will be on hand to offer refreshments, while Sweeney Tom will be offering haircuts.

The Tokyotattoo team will be busy providing tattoos, with no appointment necessary.

Magicians, drag queens, DJs and some special guests will be there too.

Tokyotattoo was awarded Cheltenham Independent Business of the Year by Cheltenham BID in 2018. It has also won awards at tattoo conventions and from tattoo publications.
