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. 🙂

(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.”
– Jen E.
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!

(3/3) Strength. Courage. Bravery. #NAOHOAstory
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 .
…okay, more of a ‘duo’ than a ‘pack’, but that’s less catchy. 😛 Check out this client’s first venture into the world of tattoos with her cute buddies. 🐀🐁
(1/3) “This will be my first tattoo…I want it to be of my pet rats. ❤” I love how this client checked I didn’t have a phobia of rats before talking about them or showing me pictures. So kind. Thankfully it wasn’t for spiders, so we’re okay!! 😅🙈 #NAOHOAstory

This piece was a collaboration between the client and myself. She had the core idea on paper and simply wanted me to snazz up the wave. From what I recall: the circle, sky and water portrays the world and its elements and the dots represent people and how we’re all the same, regardless of gender or race…hence ‘United’ in the title. 🙂
“I’ve been thinking about getting this tattoo for a few months now….”
