About the Studio

A tattoo studio owned and operated by geeks!!! Owned by mega-geek and incredible artist Alex Rattray, we love movies, comics, animation, games and toys. We are a brand new, completely renovated studio, opened in 2017. The studio is bright and colourful, filled with awesome geek-tastic stuff and TVs that constantly play (sometime debate-causing) awesome movies, we’ve even had customers playing x-box while being tattooed. The studio covers styles from colour realism, black and grey to neotraditional and Japanese. Currently we have Alex Rattray, Laura Jane and Kyle Shields working at Empire. Check out our shop portfolio and our individual artists pages to see what each of us does. We also have some incredible guest artists (and friends) who will be visiting in 2018. So far the awesome Ben Laukis, Natalie Nox and Kayley Henderson have already worked with us. (We make them drink Irn Bru and eat ridiculous sugary food, so they’ll come back) Have a look around the page, and if you want to see guff we post in our Instagram stories etc, give us and our artists a follow. Cheers :)
