He moved to Mallorca in 2004 and opened a studio with a Spanish friend. The clientele was wide and varied (Spanish, English, German and Scandinavian), many of them wanting custom work. What Jimmy calls his “off the wall” designs were always popular. Due to an illness within the family he decided to return to Beverley where in January 2010 he opened Beverley Ink.
The business has grown at a steady pace, with anything from small butterflies to full “back jobs” being the order of the day! Jimmy prides himself on his work, particularly the portraits, pin-ups and custom work that he does.
The studio is fully licensed and registered with East Riding Council and operates with strict hygiene levels, they use new needles and new inks for every client and upon completion of the artwork clients are given a leaflet on the after-care of their tattoo.
Beverley Ink is open Tuesday to Saturday (late night Thursday – by appointment only). The studio has a very friendly atmosphere, and Jimmy is always happy to have a chat and give advice to potential clients.
Everyone is welcome – as long as they’re over 18 and can provide ID to prove it if requested.
One of Jimmy Needles’ regular clients at Beverley Ink is Mandy who is very much into the 40s and 50s era (she has always said that she was born in the wrong decade!!!!) which reflects on the tattoos that she chooses.
The tattoo was a half-angel, half-devil pin-up…..the inspiration behind this was of course the pin-up element but also to show her cheeky side (the devil!!!!) and to put a modern twist on the stereotypical pin-up image.
