"The owner of the Archangel 1608 Tattoo Studio had a run-in with a customer from everyone’s nightmares"
"Fortunately, the owner, David, knew exactly what to write back to put them in their place"
David revealed that, fortunately, they don’t get too many clients like this one. The owner is also a fan of disproportionate escalation if he’s on the receiving end of abuse. “You obviously don’t want to upset the person that’s making permanent marks in your skin! If someone is rude (repeatedly), then I’ll give it back tenfold. I’m not here to be abused or treated like an idiot. All we want to do is give people cool tattoos, have a laugh, and make sure it’s a great experience for everyone.”
According to the owner, the Covid-19 pandemic had affected their business, like most other people’s. They were closed for a whopping 3 months over the summer. However, the studio’s pulling through with the support of the local community. “Fortunately, we have a lot of very loyal and very understanding clients who stuck with us, and since starting back in July, we’ve never been busier in the 16 years we’ve been here. In fact, we’re very lucky to have had another brilliant artist join us.”
