Traditional Man’s Ruin Tattoos
The Man’s Ruin tattoo design is a composition of vices’ that can lead to a man’s demise.
The main focus of the design is usually a scantily clad woman surrounded by elements representing gambling and intoxication. Examples include playing cards, dice, horse shoes, eight-balls, glasses, bottles of booze, and drug paraphernalia.
Despite the potential negative consequences that run alongside these perversions, people choosing this design often do so as an appreciation of debaucherous past times.
Throughout history we can see many examples of artists paying homage to this design and its timeless connotations.
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

Amazing experience getting my first tattoo here. The staff were excellent in helping me get an appointment that suited me. The atmosphere in the studio was great.
Got my first big tattoo, half sleeve on my forearm and couldn’t of picked a better place to have it done. The artist George went Beyond my expectations and done it all in 6 hours And a it was very in-depth tattoo. I recommend this parlour all day!

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.
