Celebrities, Musicians, Actors and Footballers are drastically changing the face of the tattoo industry which has resulted in the distinctive Minerva Lodge Tattoo Club choosing to launch it’s first store in Chester, with plans for more Lodge’s to be launched in the near future.

Whilst many current Tattoo Studios appeal to an alternative sub-culture Minerva Lodge Tattoo Club is reaching out to a mainstream audience with a fresh, friendly approach to tattooing in a lodge environment with a very distinct feel.

Created by friends Steven Bowness and Jo Talbot they bring a combined 30 years experience to working in the Tattoo industry. Jo who heads up the studio is an award winning tattoo artist and has been lucky enough to have recently been published in the latest edition of Lal Hardy’s book “Tattoo Showcase”.

Alongside a need to make tattoo studios more warm, friendly and inviting the owners have always seen the importance of the connection between tattooing and supporting fresh artistic talent which is why they have chosen to launch the whole top floor of the shop as a dedicated art studio/exhibition area as an integral part of their space.

The Minerva Lodge Tattoo Club also provides a whole host of rewards, special invites and events for those who interact via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc.
