About Us

I founded new wave tattoo in 1979 - this was a very exciting time in the fashion /music and tattoo world - the mid to late 1970's saw a revival in teddyboy, rock 'a' billy music and fashion - teds, kats and rockers sported tattoos. This is where I first got my introduction into the tattoo scene - then came PUNK ROCK and this saw the birth of NEW WAVE TATTOO. I started tattooing punk imagery onto the disaffected youth around my town - the rest is history - I was lucky to be guided by such tattoo luminaries as George Bone, Ian of Reading, Brent of Dunstable, Mickey Sharpz, Greg Irons, Dennis Cockell, Leo Zulueta (to name but a few) and the KING OF TATTOOING - Don Ed Hardy - the single most influential character ever in the tattoo world - it was Ed who told me all those years ago "you are pioneering a NEW WAVE of tattooing" - and so it is thanks to ED HARDY my shop got the name NEW WAVE TATTOO. From the teds, greasers, skins, punks, goths, new romantics and every other fashion/music cult I am lucky to now have an established studio that offers every style of tattooing on the scene today. The studio in London's leafy suburb of MUSWELL HILL has a long waiting list - so if you want a tattoo from us patience is a virtue - we have artists specialising in all styles and regularly have guest artists from around the globe. These have included Paul Booth, Bob Tyrrell, Geordie Cole, Shane O'Neill, Joe Capobianco, Jime Litwalk, Hannah Aitchinson, Kat Von D, Jack Rudy, Hercolly, Mick of Zurich, Luke Atkinson, Leo Zulueta, Martin Clark, Kiwi Kim to name but a few - If you want a tattoo e-mail me and i will recommend the right artist for you - there are over 200 studios in LONDON NOW! But there is only one NEW WAVE TATTOO - the ORIGINAL 'NEW WAVE TATTOO' and the BEST - see you soon, LAL HARDY.
