Over a year ago, I stumbled across a lovely-looking planner on Kickstarter called Minerva. After buying one for myself to support the cause (and attempt to get my shizz together), I was invited to join their Facebook group. Over time, I got to know the larger-than-life owner, Sophie Jewry. I love her honesty around being an entrepreneur, along with positive encouragement and helpful tips on how to plan for our goals. I really have no idea how she juggles her time in running her own businesses and supporting us lot in her online community!
We planned her tattoo a few months ago and finally got round to inking it. It’ll be part of a larger back piece to join onto some existing work. Here’s the first part of the puzzle:
….did I mention she drove all the way from Norfolk to be inked here?! :O Honestly can’t thank you enough for your commitment, Sophie – I had a blast and it was fab to finally meet you in person~ 💕
Until next time! 😀
It was her first time trying out Saniderm too – here’s what she had to say:
“Day 2 of the saniderm over the tattoo and I’m loving it!
No cream everywhere, no sticking to my clothes, no peeling gooey skin… all that lovely stuff no one talks about when they talk about tattoos and you forget until you get another one how inconvenient it is LOL
Not anymore! Bloody brilliant stuff. Thank you Naomi – it’s a revelation!

This client came all the way from Birmingham for a tattoo she’d wanted for about 3 years. Being her first taste of ink, she wisely opted for the Temporary Tattoo Package, allowing her to try on her design in two different colours (black and brown). There was quite a lot of traffic on the way down and she had to leave early to head towards Portsmouth, but we managed to get the bulk of it done! Whenever she’s ready next, we’ll neaten it up with a thicker outline around the outside. 🙂

(3/5) Sending off temporary tattoos for this Birmingham-based client to try out! 😊 #NAOHOAstory .
(4/5) This is what a Temporary Tattoo looks like when it’s on! 😃 #NAOHOAstory .
(5/5) This is as finished as I’ll get for a long while, as she’s since moved to Canada! 🍁 Still need to do a thicker outline around the whole thing to tidy it up, but well sat nonetheless for her first tattoo. 😊 #NAOHOAstory .
“Naomi is an exceptional tattoo artist and highly skilled. I choose to get my first tattoo with Naomi because the studio was very welcoming, extremely clean and well organised. While I was there, Naomi made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I will definitely be going back there in the future.”

Longing for a tattoo but can’t afford to pay for it in one go? NAOHOA is proud to be one of very few tattoo studios in the UK to offer Payment Plans, allowing you to pay in affordable monthly instalments.
How Does it Work?
We’ll have a Consultation as usual, so I can fully understand your tattoo idea and estimate a cost. From that, I’ll calculate payment options for 3, 6, 9 or 12-month instalments. Tattoos that cost over £1k can stretch up to two years in monthly instalments.
A £2 Transaction Fee will be added to each monthly payment. This makes it far more affordable than typical finance options.
Will I Still Need to Pay a Deposit?
I’m willing to accept an upfront fee that’s lower than the usual 50% – the amount of which will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Please be aware that this is non-refundable.
- A formal contract must be signed before designing commences,
- The client must sign up to GoCardless, using the link I provide (it’s super easy and only takes a couple of minutes!)
- An upfront fee is required, which is non-refundable. The amount can be negotiated.
- Get that tattoo you’ve wanted for yeeeaaars but struggled to save enough to get it completed in one go. With monthly payments, you’ll get your ink sooner, without the long slog of saving up first.
- Tiny £2 Transaction Fee, making this far cheaper than typical finance options.
- You have the freedom to choose which plan to opt for, based on your budget.
- You can choose which date of the month is best for payments to leave your account.
- Swift and easy set-up via GoCardless.
What’s the Catch?
- A £2 Transaction Fee will be added to each monthly payment, adding to the overall cost of your tattoo.
- The design process may take longer than usual, as I’ll be prioritising clients who pay via the usual method of 50% upfront and the rest after each session.
Can Anyone Sign Up to a Payment Plan?
Currently, I’m offering this on a case-by-case basis. If I have reason to think regular payments may not be possible, I have the right to decline this service to the individual. If this applies to you, please check out my ‘Money-Saving Tips’ blog post for advice! 🙂
If this interests you, please get in touch!
This client wanted to have the Chinese version of his name with an energetic brush stroke on his back. 🙂 His name means a mixture of powerful/mighty/strong/brave…all that Jazz!

Had my 3rd Tattoo done by Naomi. She did a fantastic job what I wanted. She very different compare to the other tattoo palours I been in the past in a very good way. Her studio is very clean, well presented and welcoming.
Naomi is very nice lady, very professional, very patience to her clients. She has good future ahead of her. She gives very clear instructions of the aftercare of the tattoos also she gives nice thank you pack with clear instructions of the aftercare to which is very kindly of her.
No doubt I will be returning for future tattoos and highly recommend for someone to have first tattoo with her.
This client was searching for a tattoo artist for around two years to bring his tattoo idea to life. After finding my ‘Four Seasons’ sleeve, he decided NAOHOA was the place to be! I was originally going to post this as a #NAOHOAstory but was too excited to share it, haha. Maybe I’ll add the other elements at a later date. 😛

This client came all the way from Birmingham with his mates to get ink! I had a blast designing and tattooing this one. 🙂
(1/3) This Brummy client wanted a Kung Fu Panda tattoo, based on the pose of this figurine. I sketched a more dynamic version, which was later painted after getting a thumbs up from the client. #NAOHOAstory . The figurine looks a bit weird ’cause his proportions are all over the place. I already had the art book for #kungfupanda2 and used that for reference. 😄🐼
(2/3) Inks at the ready! #NAOHOAstory .
