Paper street studio is a bespoke tattoo studio based at Kings arcade in the heart of lancaster city.

We specialize in all styles of tattoo, including black and grey, japanese, traditional (old school), and Portraiture. 

A really friendly studio you're welcome to pop in for a chat and discuss your ideas for a tattoo, we'll take your ideas and turn them into an original design and giving you a stunning tattoo.

Trained as an illustrator Al has been working in the tattoo industry for the last 10 years. 

Specializing in black and grey portraiture , it's easy to see that he has a background as a portrait artist and is a great all round tattoo artist.

Al is also a very talented designer, and will be happy to design you a stunning sleeve or backpiece or even a simple small tattoo.

We have multiple work areas where you can have any part of your body tattooed. The downstairs are commonly used for chest, ribs and legs. Upstairs we have the design area, this is where we also do arms and back tattoos. The toilet and washroom facilities are also upstairs. In our friendly reception area there is the sofa and magazine stand where you can browse for new tattoo ideas, get information on tattoos or simply have a chat with one of us about anything you'd like to know or are planning for yourself. 


Pop into the studio and we'll have a chat with you about your ideas for a tattoo, at this stage you'll need to have some idea of what it is your hoping to get, or what the tattoo is going to symbolize. We have lots of resources at our disposal and if your mind is just a blank then we can help.

Design Service

After your initial consultation we'll take your ideas and a few of our own and work some Paper Street magic on them to come up with an original tattoo design, at all stages through this process we'll stay in touch with you and let you know how it's going and if you like the direction we're taking with your design.

The Tattoo

When your happy with the design we've done for you it's time for the fun part, getting it tattooed! We have a really friendly studio and we'll try to make your time with us as enjoyable as possible, we have free tea and coffee on hand , numbing cream is available on request in advance at a small extra cost, and if your finding it hard going then we can always have a break.
