We have two studios situated in the Belper town centre. Our main studio compromises of our main reception, 3 artist stations and our Laser Removal Suite. Just across the road our secondary studio Monki 2 sits back from the main road and hosts another 2 artist stations and our walk in day twice a week during the warmer months of the year.

Walk in day

During set times of the year we have a walk in day which starts around 10am until 5pm at Monki 2 on a Thursdays. The walk in day is there so you can pop in with a smaller design in mind and get tattooed on the day. One of our artists will give you a brief consultation about your idea, a quote and a time slot to return during the day. This is a first come first serve process so to ensure a slot we recommend getting to the studio before 10am. Please check our Facebook before you set off to the studio as on the odd occasion the walk in day can be cancelled.
