Exclusive Tattoos is located in the High Street, in Street at the opposite end of the town to Strode College.

We offer all styles of tattooing and welcome everything from fresh new pieces, to cover ups and complete reworks.

Exclusive Tattoos is owned and run by Mr Sean Evett, one of the areas longest established artists and he is accompanied by a fantastic team of talented tattoo artists.

Although appointments are always the best way to guarantee getting in with your chosen artist when you want and there is a wait time generally enquiries of any kind are welcome as we can often squeeze in walk ins if people are flexible on times due to appointment cancellations and the odd space between tattoos.

Step 1: Consultation

The best way to start a project is always to pop in and see us with your reference and discuss your ideas in person. Alternately send your ideas via email info@ex-tat.co.uk and we can start from there.

STEP 2: LINED DRAWING

Once we have your idea and you have booked an appointment your chosen artist will create a design.

STEP 3: REVIEW YOUR DESIGN

We will then have a line drawing for you to take a look at on the day of your appointment.
Step 4: STENCIL

Step 4: STENCIL

Before tattooing starts we will take a thermal carbon stencil from design and this will be applied to your body. This is used as a guide for artists and also helps in getting tattoo placement correct.
Step 5: Tattooing

Step 5: Tattooing

We will prepare, clean and begin tattooing. Smaller pieces will be completed in a single session whilst larger pieces may take several sessions over an extended time. A wrap will be provided to protect your tattoo for a few hours after it has been applied.
Step 6: Care Plan

Step 6: Care Plan

  • Just got my first tattoo since getting fibromyalgia and was a bit nervous but they were brilliant and Rosa did a fantastic job – both with drawing up what I wanted and the tattoo. Totally recommend them and I’ll definitely be going back

    Jolene

  • Amazing service, love my tattoo!! I was made to feel really at ease and comfortable by every one who works here. Bex did my tattoo and it looks fantastic I couldn’t be happier with it. I never imagined it would look so good as it’s a rework of a awful tattoo which I had as a teenager, I was never made to feel stupid or silly despite how bad the tattoo I originally had there was!! I literally can’t even tell the old one was there, as it’s been turned into a beautiful new one thank you so much!!!!!
