Traditional Demon Tattoos

Acting as a counter to man's fascination with or belief in God and the timeless struggle of good versus evil, demon tattoos have always been a popular choice in traditional tattooing. They often symbolise the dark side of people and their proclivity towards hedonistic pursuits such as alcohol, drugs, gambling and sex. They can also be used as reminders of a person's past struggles, eg with addiction or crime and to constantly be alert to them resurfacing.

Many cultures and religions have their own unique versions of demons. One of the most well known being Baphomet. In medieval times, the Knights Templar were accused, by the church, of worshipping Baphomet and therefore heresy. This goat-headed deity then became associated with the occult and was further popularised by the infamous Satanist - Aleister Crowley.

Just had my very first tattoo done by Ben and couldn't be more pleased. From the very first email to the shop they were supportive and very accommodating. I was so nervous but Ben made me feel at ease and I got the exact tattoo that I wanted. Such an enjoyable day. I'll be booking Ben again for the next ink I want done

Had a 7 hour Japanese piece done with Davide De Cinto. Service was great, Davide's work was fanastic and I feel the price was really good value for money in terms of the quality of work Davide is putting out. Highly recommended.
