Monki Do Tattoo Studio
Custom Tattoo Studio, Belper, Derbyshire
We are Monki Do. Established in 2004 by owner/artist Andy Bowler, we are a custom tattoo studio situated in the countryside town of Belper, Derbyshire.
Working alongside Andy are Mark Gibson, Steve Jarvis and Jen Akinyemi who all offer bespoke custom designs and a client orientated process from consultation, to finished tattoo. Our friendly staff are waiting to welcome you into the world of Monki Do.
We are open Tuesday - Saturday, 10am - 6pm.
(There may be, due to demand, waiting times for appointments.)
Also in Belper is our second studio, Monki 2 which is run by Matt Bowler. At Monki 2 we offer the same high standard of work and client experience as Monki Do, but with the added advantage of having a dedicated day a week for walk-in appointments. We have a large range of designs to choose from, or feel free to bring along your own.
Monki Do Tattoo Studio and Monki 2 are both Health Department Registered. All Needles, Covers, Ink Pots, Gloves, Tissues etc are disposed of after every client.
I spent years looking around for the best tattoo artist to do mine, I found him, Andy Bowler and Monki Do, I cannot recommend highly enough. I wouldn't go anywhere else and I only wish I had the funds to return, if you want the best, well worth the wait you will NOT be disappointed. Lovely staff, great premises and location. THE BEST. After having Andy do 2 large pieces I can't wait to go back but I would let any of the artists at Monki tatt me, there work is top quality and they are all smashing people. Do it. ;-)
Monki-Do was recommended by a friend, and I had some work added to my chest and arm piece. They are inedible artists, super professional, uber hygienic and clean and never stingy with the cups of tea. I can't wait to get the major piece started next year with these guys!
Although I only get in the studio once a year for work on my back I always look forward to seeing the latest work being posted and nothing fails to amaze me of the endless talents of all the artists that work at Monki Do and not forgetting Monki 2. I wouldn’t ever change my choice of studio’s even if it meant waiting 3 years as you will never get a studio like this and I have been in a few in my time. Keep up the good work.
A very professional experience from the beginning. Always made to feel welcome in the shop which makes the tattooing experience a lot more pleasant (which isn't always the case at some places). The artwork is fantastic and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else, it's always worth the wait. You don't make a bad cuppa either, despite what Gibbo says.
- Recently had cover up work done by Steve then Andy, The way they approached the work required was very sympathetic with a totally professional attitude. To be able to do this and the quality of the end results is amazing.
Your work, quality and devotion is with me forever!!
- Andy's capacity to second guess and exceed your expectations allows for a level of trust not only in his commissioned pieces but his free hand work also, that I have never experienced anywhere else
