December 2015

Hello everyone, Ho Ho Ho Christmas is coming........ Sorry, sorry, sorry everything on here is a bit out of date, but we are working on having a new one built. I cannot get on myself to update this page, as you can probably tell! But I am trying to get some new photos put up in the galleries (which i can change) for our tattoo artists who work here now and update Charlie’s piercing pictures too. They galleries do stop working here and there for some strange reason, as it has a mind of its own!!!! so please bare with us. Also I am going to try and put some updates in a gallery just so you can check out if we have any offers on or what’s happening in the studio, don’t know if it will work but I will try. So look out for the a gallery just marked as UPDATES. All of our most up to date info is done daily on our Facebook page: Sunderland Body Art or contact the studio for information on 0191 5656595 or or private message us on Facebook too.

As most of you know, but for those who don’t after 13 and a half years on Holmeside in the city centre, Sunderland Body Art moved premises to 12 Stockton Terrace, Grangetown, Sunderland. SR2 9RQ. This was a huge up evil and brought on lots of changes all round and there have been lots more since!!

On the 31st October 2015 just gone, all of us here in the Studio celebrated 15 years since Charlie opened Sunderland Body Art’s doors for the first time in, also we celebrated being the FIRST and still the only Tattoo Studio in Sunderland to be awarded the highest award of 5 STARS for the NEW Tattoo Hygiene Rating Scheme on 23rd October 2015. Can't believe 15 years have gone past so quick!! There have been lots of comings and goings and changes along the way and after moving the studio to Grangetown at the beginning of May 2014, there have been a few ups and downs to say the least and lots more changes, but now we are cooking with gas again, onwards and upwards.

We would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to our awesome team that we have working with us now: Sophie, Jake, Grant and Abigail (is back) for working brilliantly together as they have been and also for pulling together and helping to implement the new systems and changing the way they work to fall in line with it all so we were good enough to get the 5 STAR Tattoo Hygiene Rating. Awesome job done guys. Also we would like to thank you fantastic loyal and lovely customers, old and new who have who have stood by us thick and thin through everything. It’s down to you we are still here doing what we do, so Thank You all once again and here’s to another 15 years!!!!!!! Best Wishes Charlie and Jo xxx

Have a Fabulous Christmas and a Very Merry New Year everyone.

march 2013


As most of you know Abigail has moved out to Australia for 2 years and is working in a tattoo studio in Melbourne. BUT she is coming back for a couple of weeks towards the end of March for a family doo. This is great as we can't wait to see her and catch up properly.
Abigail is going to do a guest spot for us for 2 days whilst she is around, but the dates are not confirmed yet. If you keep an eye on our Facebook page (Sunderland Body Art) we will update it when we find out the exact dates when she will be working in the studio.
Just bear in mind Abigail will only be doing 2 days so she will not be able to take on any full sleeve work or anything that needs to be ongoing, as it will need to be something that can be finished over those days.
Abigail is looking to do some nice work, so if anyone wants a portrait or some realism get in contact with the studio via phone: 0191 5656595 or by email: and we will see whether we can get you in with her.
Check out Abigail's new website:


We have a nice young man called Csabi doing the odd day for us tattooing in the studio. He is from Budapest in Hungary and he studied fine art at university over there. We don't know how long he will be here for but if you want something different then he is the man for it and he his work is awesome as you can see in the gallery we have put on the website. The more intricate it is the better his work is, Csabi is not the fastest tattooist but his work speaks for it's self. He speaks brilliant English so organising your artwork for your tattoo will be no problem and loves to customise his work and make it his own style.


We would like to welcome Sophie into the studio who is our new Saturday girl, she has come on board to gain work experience in the tattoo and body piercing environment. Sophie will be doing some designing and working behind reception learning how to deal with customers, answering the phones and booking them in etc.
Sophie is studying art at college at the moment as she wants to become a tattoo artist in the future, so as time goes on Sophie will be learning to tattoo under the watchful eye of Lee as his apprentice.
