Our Work Speaks For Itself

Resident artist Louis Molloy has been a professional tattoo artist for 24 years and has been at the Middleton Tattoo Studio for that length of time. Louis has also done many guest spots in studios in both Europe and the USA. He is a very versatile tattoo artist as our galleries show and can work in any style.

The Studio History

The Middleton Tattoo studio was opened in August 1981 by Louis Molloy who was just 18 years old at the time.

The studio has gone from strength to strength and underwent its current incarnation in 2001 making it one of the most modern studios in the UK.

Centrally heated and fully air conditioned for your comfort. We have portfolios and a computer database showing our designs with full access for clients to browse the internet.

Louis Molloy has won many many awards down the years but feels the only ones truly worth mentioning are the two awards for outstanding artist of the year UK in 1986 and 1993.

The tattooing of many celebrities has given the studio a very high profile in the media but it must be stressed that all clients are equal at the Middleton Tattoo studio.
