Hi Dud, Simon and Grace. Just been in for my annual tattoo this being my sixteenth year and eighteenth tattoo. Once again Dud has done a fantastic tattoo. I came in on Monday and to my suprise i could not see Dud sitting in his chair. I later found out that Dud had not been very well. It was with great pleasure that I recieved a phone call saying that Dud was feeling better and that i could keep my appointment on the following Friday. I sincerely hope that Dud continues his recovery. This Man/friend is the best Tattoo artist that i have ever had a tattoo done by. I can recommend that should you be thinking of having a tattoo done then pay a visit to DNA, the cleanest and freindliest place I have ever set foot in. See you next year for sure. Bob (the cat man)

Just had the most amazing cover up in the history of tattooing! Simon has excelled himself in his chosen art and he has done me the most original, fantastic dragon, that I could have wished for. He has surpassed all of my expectations and I would recommend Simon, Dudley and last but by no means least Grace, to anyone wishing to get a tattoo (the real thing). I will be back as soon as finance(wife) dictates it! Thank you for making it such a pleasant experience and a good crack as well. See you all soon.

Birmingham, England - Thursday 17th of August 2006 - 11:53

It is against the law (Tattooing of Minors Act 1969) to tattoo anyone under 18, and there is no such thing as parental consent, any more than your parents can take you to a pub and get you drunk because they say it is OK. Obviously the shops you have been to are respectable professionals as they would not do it; there are many scratchers out there who will do it, but beware of the results Ė if they donít care about the law they wonít care about you or your tattoo. If you are 17 then there isnít long to wait and then you can have whatever you want, without seeking the help of amateurs with no ability to carry out the work.

Newquay - Monday 14th of August 2006 - 10:58

hi im 17 yrs old and realy want a tattoo but evrywher i go uv gota b 18, does any1 kno anywher that does tattoos 4 under 18yr olds with parental permission??? thnx!

hi. i've read glowing reports on several of your wolf tattoos. i'm wanting a specific wolf tattoo myself, but, as i'm in n.yorks feel cornwall is just a tad on the far side. would you possibly be able to recommend any wolf "specialists" a bit further north for me please ? Thanks.

Just to remind anyone with too much time on their hands that all entries go through an admin page - so save yourself the trouble of sending advertisements or stupid messages because you won't see them here.

Atlantic Coast Tattoo Studio - Tuesday 20th of September 2005 - 18:00

Came in on monday for my first tattoo. Dudley you did a great job - everyone loves it, even my mum! I expect that I will back at some point to get another design done. Guess tattoos really are addictive. Take care guys.

Another update from here in Cali. Things are pretty crazy right now with Katrina hitting the South. Many of my military brothers are on the ground doing what they can to help people survive. Doesn't look likely that I will be coming to visit this winter with all this going on here. Hope all is well with the studio and Newquay. Another summer is coming to a close for you guys and I hope it all went well. I am looking forward to getting out there when I can, all the best my friends. Clinton

I walked in with a specific design in mind and Dudley matched what I wanted perfectly. He was also willing to take some pictures during the session. I put together a quick web page to show my family what it looks like at http://www.hedgewriter.com/tatt.htm Amazing quality and atmosphere in the shop. I will continue to recommend Atlantic Coast to all my friends. See you for the color in a couple of weeks.

Newquay - Saturday 30th of July 2005 - 18:06

Got my very first tattoo done last Monday when I was in Newquay and I love it! My boyfriend was that impressed with it that on the Friday he went and got one himself, they're both healing great and we can't wait to come back next year and get inked again. Sorry I don't know the tattoists name but he's the one with the beard (admin - that would be Simon), thanx so much for fitting us both in.xxx

My wife and I spent our 10th anniversary in Newquay in 2000, and Polly redid my wedding band for a fiver! I would love to hang out and chat again. Dud, thanks again for the conversation and inspiration. I'm sure you don't remember me, but if you ever need an artist, my family lives in Newquay, and I am always looking for a reason to take the kiddies to their grandparents. Enough B.S., Polly tell your beautiful daughter hi, and Dud, let me know if you want to visit Denver. Derek www.tattooderek.com

Thanks to Polly for the freehand tattoo you did on Richards shin. Well it originally started last year on outside leg, came back for addition on shin this year but three days later he HAD to come back so you could go all way round! He's never had so many comments on a tattoo before - everyone who sees it is stunned by how great it looks. Mark was not happy that he'd only had a few stars added to his arm and Richard had this beauty! Thanks to Polly and good luck to her for future! He will be back to get more from Dud or Simon though - guaranteed!

I had a fantastic design done on my lower spine, i found a design i liked on line with a tribal bit and a nice butterfly in the middle. I contacted u guys and you were incredibly helpful and i booked my appointment, had it done on the 26th June, the tattooist was brilliant even improved on the design by colouring the butterfly in a blue and white. Im so chuffed with it, it's healing well. I also popped in to speak to the piercing people as i had my tongue pierced in Exeter the week before and it turns out they pierced it too far back and wonky, wish id had it done at atlantic, they were very helpful told me what to do and i complained to the people up here, had it taken out and having it redone, but thanks again for showing such professional advice. Ill be back soon for my fourth xxxxx

Cheers for my lovely fairy, dudley. She's still a little red, and the boney bit at the top of my spine is very tender, but she has created a lot of interest and I can't wait until she has healed properly. See you soon for my winged heart!

ACTS, Whats up guys? I am still here in Coronado for training. Things are pretty good here, instructors here have been kicking our asses. But it will be worth it in the end. Hope all is well in Newquay, I miss it. Just wanted to say hi and let you know I am still alive and kicking. I will be in touch and fill you in about my training. I cant wait to get over and get some ink, I am getting desperate for some. But will not ever go to anybody else. Later, Clitnon

Thank you so much Simon for my butterfly. I whimpered and yelped all the way through it and you were great. I absolutely LOVE it, it was well worth having it done, and I would recommend ACTS to anybody that wanted a tatoo. Also thanks to Polly for giving me a cuddle, and the guy that felt faint and had to lay on the bed while I having my tat done... you don't know how much better that made me feel for the whimpering I was doing *grins*

NORTHUMBERLAND - Tuesday 14th of October 2003 - 22:01

Hi Polly and Dudley, Already having a couple excellent tattoos done by Dudley I decided that I would like to cover up one of my old tats that filled allot of my arm. I e-mailed a picture of my tattoo that I wanted covering up and Dudley said Polly would be the best one for this particular piece. When I went for the tattoo I sat in the chair and, Polly drew a new design, "freehand" straight over my old tattoo. My arm is now something I can be proud to show off and matches the excellent tattoo's that I have already had done at your studio. You are true professionals, Many Thanks, Neil

Midlands - Saturday 04th of October 2003 - 12:55

Hi Polly and the gang I was in your studio about 3 years ago and had some work that i am very proud of. Now i would like to get more. I thought that you said you guys had a shop in Hawaii. I am on my way there soon and hope to find it and get some work done. thanks for my ink

Dudley did Lola Bunny on my arm back in '98 and she's still as sexy as ever. Last time I left a msg on here, some guy emailed me wanting to see a pic and I'm sorry if he reads this but there's no way I'm having someone copy her! She's unique to me and I'd like it to stay that way. When I come back to the UK for a visit, I'm going to stop by and have another tat done. Thanks guys!
