This month we talk to Karen Jones about her business Galaxy Tattoo, an affordable local tattoo studio.

Hi Karen! Tell us about your business

Galaxy tattoo is not just a tattoo studio its a family who learn from each other and look after each other. We love to raise funds for charity. Our main charities are Macmillan and Birkenhead dogs home. We sponsor a local under 12 football team which is run by one of our clients. We pride ourselves on being a calm, relaxed and welcoming place to get a tattoo.

We believe everyone should be able to afford a tattoo in this day and age. This is why we have a range of ways to pay which helps our customers afford their ink. We understand how important a tattoo can be to someone who is grieving, has anxiety, low self esteem or just erasing a bad memory from the past. My team and I love our jobs because we can do this for people in our local community
