Good Times

Old Street

Style: Eclectic mix of tribal styles, including western traditional, Japanese and Tibetan, with a feminine edge.

Artists: Nikole Lowe, Saira Hunjan, Jamie Ruth, Danny Boy and Kate Mackay-Gill.

Who goes there: It's only just opened, but Saira and Nikole have tattooed Kate Moss and Boy George in the past.

Serene tattooing sounds like an oxymoron, but not where Nikole Lowe’s new Zen-like sanctuary above Curtain Road is concerned. Spacious, light and sophisticated, it’s the opposite to stereotypical cramped and garish tattoo shops. The walls boast cross-continental curiosities with a bohemian and exotic twist and there’s a multi-ethnic shrine in one corner, representing the studio’s unique design flair. Lowe, who featured in TV series ‘London Ink’, has assembled some of the best female tattooists in London, including hipster (and Kate Moss) favourite Saira Hunjan, you’ll have to be patient, however: both Lowe and Hunjan’s waiting lists stretch until next year.

Have had 7 pieces done here now with work by two of the artists Piotrek Taton and Danny Kelly. Great studio, friendly staff, clean, professional and calm inside. No bullshit trendy f-wits. If you want a professional and creative piece of work I highly recommend it!

Good Times??? I don't think so! Pretentious with a capital "P"!! I emailed some pice of the sort of stuff I wanted, booked in for a consultation and travelled to London, only to be told that the guy I spoke to didn't want to tatto my hands because I didn't have work there already. Told to go for a second appointment with someone else so I went for a consultation today, but they were 20 mins late with no apology and then told me that they didn't like my idea so they wouldn't do it, but if I wanted to choose something from their portfolio that would! WTF??? Talk about up yourself??!! I hadn't realised that tattooists had become such snobs since my last one ten years ago!!

I went to Good Times to get a faded 20 year old tattoo recoloured. Miles did a great job, and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. Highly recommended!

I must admit I am so impressed with this studio, I was having my first tattoo in 15 years, and I was quite nervous about how it all works now! The receptionist was fantastic, so helpful and made me feel at ease. bringing me tea and sweets throughout, making sure I was ok ! The tattoo I had was by Miles, and he was lovely, and the tattoo is beautiful , I get comments on it everywhere I go!! Wonderful studio , I have recommended it to all my friends!
