Established in November 2016, Dark Steel was opened by artist Dan Phillips and his partner Rebecca. It began with very humble beginnings in a teeny tiny room. 6 months later, we have a huge funky, cool studio with 8 team members. (Check out the album "The Studio") With 4 full time resident artists, all specialising in custom designs, you can guarantee there's an artist here for you. All styles are covered including cover ups which are Dan's speciality. We have an open door policy, so you're always welcome to pop in and have an informal chat about creating your perfect tattoo. We have a super relaxed and welcoming atmosphere but remain extremely professional at all times. We are fully registered and insured and hygiene is paramount to us. DEPOSITS - Deposits are required for all bookings. This includes any designs that you request to be drawn up. Once the design is completed, you'll be invited into the studio to view your design and discuss any changes you'd like to make. All bookings will require a deposit and will be deducted from the total price on the day of your appointment. THE ARTISTS DAN PHILLIPS - SENIOR ARTIST Dan has been in the industry for over 10 years. He is an extremely experienced, versatile artist and covers all styles. All cover ups are allocated to Dan. He has trained many people who have gone on to be successful, established artists.
