Based in the small industrial town of Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire, nestled away from the busy town centre stands Dragonart Tattoo Studio.
One of the first things that you will notice about our studio is how clean and spacious it is. We pride ourselves on our exceptional hygiene standards and practices, ensuring an all-round amazing experience for everyone who visits us in our studio.
The atmosphere is really relaxed and friendly, which helps each client to enjoy their tattoo journey from start to finish.
Our spacious, warm and welcoming studio has plenty to offer.
Our separate work rooms offer our clients comfort and privacy, so you do not have to share your sitting with other clients or on-lookers.
Discretion, dignity and most importantly an awesome piece of artwork is what we offer.
Our machines and work areas are cleaned using a special solution after every use, which maintains our high standards of cleanliness and hygiene within the studio.
We only use disposable needles and grips, which are safely disposed after each client.
Our inks are also vegan friendly.
We offer a FREE car park with disabled access suitable for wheelchairs and clients with mobility issues.
Greg and Kaz Slocombe have a combined 25 years experience in the tattoo industry.
Dragonart Tattoo Studio was first established in 2007 by Greg and is dedicated to his late father Brian.
In 2012 Greg met Kaz where work and romance bloomed between the two artists.
The two combined make an unstoppable team who bounce off each others energy and passion for the industry and its artwork.
In 2019 Greg and Kaz got married surrounded by loving family and close friends.
Which goes to show, you can live and work with your better half.
Both artists create custom pieces for their clients, so that no two pieces of art are ever the same.
After all, who wants to be just like everyone else?
We believe in being individual, expressive and bold! We believe that having a tattoo can be a fun, spiritual and meaningful experience. We can make that happen! Big or small, we have you covered!
A tattoo is not just "some ink" on someone's skin. It's an adventure, it's a journey!

Cancer (ergh we HATE that awful word)!
Sadly in life far to many men and women have to face this awful illness.
Leaving our bodies scarred and maybe not looking quite as we had hoped.
Breast cancer leaves women and men feeling incomplete, lost, uncomfortable and no longer confident within their skin after mastectomy surgery.
Many survivors on the NHS waiting list do not realise that they will receive a SEMI-PERMANENT nipple and areola tattoo, which are very basic circles with very basic colours. Semi-permanent tattoos require top ups which are damaging to already fragile skin.
Your body has been through enough trauma without having to have repeat damage to scarred, reconstructed and often radiated tissue.
A very well known, respected surgeon said " You would not expect a Tattoo artist to perform surgery, so why expect a Surgeon to perform a tattoo".
Tattoo artists have skills and experience working with scar tissue. While surgeons have had basic training in semi-permanent tattooing sadly they do not have the artistic skills to make a nipple and areola look as realistic as a trained and certified tattoo artist can.
That's where Kaz comes in!
Trained by the AMAZING world renowned tattoo artist specialising in areola and nipple restorative tattoos STACIE-RAE WEIR. The creator and founder of A.R.T and with the support of THE NIPPLE INNOVATION PROJECT. Kaz is proud to offer PERMANENT areola and nipple restorative tattoos here at the studio. Kaz is the ONLY certified tattoo artist in Lincolnshire to offer this service.
Permanent tattooing means less trauma to your already delicate skin. You will not have to keep coming back for top ups every few years. You can simply get back to being YOU again. Loving life, feeling complete and confident again. Own your body!
Your first steps of the final part of your journey is a cup or tea/coffee and a biscuit, along with a FREE private consultation to speak about your treatment, your expectations, desired results and aftercare.
Links to A.R.T and The Nipple Innovation Project can be found on our Facebook page, Instagram and also on this website.
If you have scars around the breast area that you would like to turn into a beautiful piece of artwork then a decorative mastectomy tattoo may be an option.

A.R.T was created and founded by the amazing Stacie-Rae! Her dream was to create realistic, life long areola tattoos for breast cancer survivors.
