ABOUT HARRY FLASHMANS
We are the purveyors of the finest custom tattoos in the land
– WHO IS HARRY FLASHMAN? –
If you turn up at the Tattoo studio asking for Harry, you won’t have much luck. He isn’t our founder, nor our lead artist. In fact, he’s a character developed by George Macdonald Fraser for his novels and short stories The Flashman Papers. He’s a semi-aristocrat soldier who twists and turns his way through various works of historical fiction, and it’s his funny, slightly off-beat escapades that have inspired our unique brand.
– OUR WORK –
Each of our industry-leading artists comes from a design or Fine Art background, so whatever style of tattoo you’re looking for, we’ll have it covered. Our artists’ talents extend far beyond ink. They are always keen to get creative through whatever means possible, from painting, graffiti, music, film, sport, and even art collecting. We find that their passion for all kinds of artistic expression really shines through at the design stage of creating your one-off tattoo. After all, it’s our aim to develop something that’s a piece of art in itself.

BLACK AND GREY
Bare black tattoos, interspersed with some subtle shades of grey for variation, really push the talents of any artist to the limit.
They are one of the hardest tattoos to create. Accurate likenesses are difficult to achieve. But luckily, Flashmans has some of the best portrait specialists in the business.
If you love all things dotty, try these Pointillism-inspired tattoos. Whether positioned close together or further apart, dot marks make for a softer but no-less-striking design.
Using crisp bold line-work and just a handful of colours, our artists will create a timeless tattoo that will never go out of style.
A unique blend of bright, vibrant colours achieve an eye-catching look. It’s not unusual for our artists to use up to 16 colours per tattoo.
Inspired by this spiritual and ritual symbol that permeates Hinduism and Buddhism, these tattoos use geometric shapes to reflect the structure of the universe.
Using ink like a painter’s palette, only the skilled can imitate the soft watercolour-like blends of this popular style.
Tattoos that reflect Oriental culture bring striking colours, bold lines and fascinating heritage to the fore. This style has certainly come a long way from the single needle pushed into the skin.
