What a horrible place! Even the receptionist has a bad attitude, let alone the tattooists! I don't how anyone would want to let these guys leave a permanent mark on them!

Style: Across the board.
Artists: Alex Binnie, Mr X, Tomas Tomas, Tass, Higgins, Lucy and Calypso.
Who goes there: Lucky Diamond Rich (the world's most tattooed man), Alexander McQueen, Keith Flint (Prodigy) and Britney Spears.
Open since 1993 and sticking out of Clerkenwell office blocks, Into You is one of the most sought after studios in London and some of the capital's best tattoo artists have worked under its steer. Today, go for owner Alex Binnie's bold tribal designs, Mr X’s saturated black graphics and first-rate shading, or for Tomas Tomas, who often uses a traditional hand-poking technique, and whose incredibly intricate, modern tribal diagrams are particularly impressive. They're about as far from Celtic crosses as you can get!

Had a tattoo done, was full of detail, based on a cartoon character and it came out absolutely amazing. Would never guess it will look exactly like my picture. So very pleased with that. Couldn't be happier. Kudos to Steve and big thank you. However my overall experience isn't 5* at all. When I showed up on time, the receptionist told me Steve is running a "little" late and would arrive at 1.30pm instead of 12pm and she couldn't call me because didn't have my number. She could have thought of some better lie as I could see my phone number right next to my name in the booking diary. Then at 12 o'clock she asked me to email my design to the studio, which I already did at the time when I was making the appointment. I wonder what would have happened if I hadn't had a smartphone and couldn't email it to her. So although the tattoo is absolutely perfect, the salon should work on "customer service" because people do pay a lot of money for that.
I went in their about 8 years ago and was treated as though I wasn't worthy of being in there.. Horrible lady on reception dealt with me and put me off tattoos.. I left feeling rather confused about the whole thing .. I will be avoiding this place.
Highly skilled tattooists but rotten attitude. Plenty of other shops in London with friendlier staff.
They try and make you feel small from the moment you walk in. If I treated my customers they way they treat people in that shop, I wouldn't have any work. There are plenty of other tattoo shops in London with equally skilled and experienced people working in them but with a much friendlier attitude.
These guys are unbelievable. I went for a consultation for a sleeve tattoo and the receptionist was very rude and the tattooist I specifically asked to talk to (Chris Higgins) just carried on tattooing the guy he was working on whilst talking to me (not a very professional consultation!) and had a very disrespectful attitude.
I agree with the previous reviews, I went in to get some inspiration and discuss a design but they were very unfriendly and unhelpful. Although recommended by a friend I would not go back. I lost my deposit too as I decided to go with friendlier shop.
