I echo Mr Z's review entirely, I have a good few tattoos done by Rob, all of them brilliantly executed and often commented upon.I visited on the morning of my 40th birthday to see if I could be squeezed in for a little birthday ink. Β James was on the desk and although all of the artists were fully booked for that day took my number and said he would see what he could do. Β Lo and behold a few hours later I got a call, jumped in the car and got my birthday tattoo done by James. Β I love the vibe in Border Rose, even if you are not a personal friend, you soon feel like one. Β It's always spotlessly clean, professional and a fun place to hang out whilst your other half gets some pain delivered!Go get tattooed there, I dare ya! Read Less

I have know Rob,the owner of Border Rose for longer than he has been a professional tattoo artist,and the day he opened up his own place was a good day indeed. He first tattooed me in 1997 whilst he was serving his time working for another local artist,and since then nobody else has been allowed near my body with ink filled needles or piercing implements of doom....His apprentice Abi is pretty damn talented too,and the lucky woman has a tattoo by world reknown artist Paul Booth on her hand!!!The actual studio itself is warm and welcoming and seriously friendly.Rob being the type of artist who likes a challenge,he is happiest when he can get his teeth into a bit of custom work. I basically gave him the letters ZOMBI and my forearm and said come up with something. He did,and pretty soon I will have a lovely Zombi tatt to show people who probably have no interest in my arm at all : )A word of warning though,Rob is a busy man,you generally have to make an appointment to get a tattoo from him,Abi on the other hand, being the apprentice often has more free/spare time. That is how you can generally tell how good a Tattooist is,if you can walk right in off the street and get a tatt done then they are doing something wrong,a good Tattooist is usually booked up for a few months at least (Cancelations not withstanding).You can't beat a good Tattoo,and not many Artists can beat Border Rose......
