Welcome to Julies Tattoo Studio Website


Julies Tattoo Studio was set up in 1993 by Julie and her husband Steve. The studio is based in Kempston on the outskirts of Bedford.


At the moment Julie and Katie are our resident artists.





About Us

We are more than happy to work from your own designs, photographs or your own reference books.


The studio can always accommodate walk-ins for smaller tattoos but we do advise to call ahead to check availability, although appointments are needed for larger pieces. Custom tattoos take time to design and draw up so we do require a deposit to be left at the start of the process and when making appointments.


Our opening times are Monday to Saturday 10am - 5.30 pm.



Please find us on facebook,



We are registered and regulated by the Bedfordshire Environmental Health Department and strive to adhere to the most up to date practices and techniques within our trade. Our premises are modern, clean and hygienic.


All our sterilization equipment is modern and tested daily. ALL customers have NEW needles and ink.  We take your welfare very seriously.


Body Piercing

All piercings performed at the studio are carried out in private and sterile conditions. We only use high quality, sterile jewellery and a single use needle by a fully qualified professional.

 Piercings will only be carried out on persons aged 16 years and above. For some piercings the requirement is 18 years and above. Photo I.D. will be required to prove your age. Please call the studio for more information. People under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by a parent and bring photo I.D.


Ear Piercing

Lobe piercing is carried out on persons over the age of 5.


Nose Piercing

Nose piercing is carried out using a palm pressure gun specifically designed for nose piercing that is recommended by the local health authority. The age requirement is 16 years and above.



You must be 18 in order to get a tattoo, this is the law under the Tattooing of Minors Act 1969.
This is regardless of parental consent and we will not tattoo anyone under the age of 18.

If you are 18 or older but don't look it we strongly recommended you bring photo I.D
