Beynur Kaptan is continuing to make quite an impact in the world of tattooing attracting top artists and picking up prestigious awards year by year. This successful local business has decided to expand.
“We are leasing out what was the hairdresser’s shop next door, and joining the two shops together as one amazing studio,” said Beynur, as he showed me round the premises which will incorporate a small retail area selling custom-made jewellery, after-care cream, crazy hair dyes and sought after alternative designer tee-shirts.
“We will be hiring a body piercer/receptionist, and hopefully another tattoo apprentice will come on board later in the summer.
“By expanding our premises we will have more room to accommodate many different guest artists from around the world, who specialise in many fantastic unique styles. The guest artists will normally stay 1 week at a time, and this will give our clients a great opportunity to have their very own special body art created by one of our top visiting tattoo artists.
“Currently we have 6 artists which includes myself, and even though the majority of our clients travel from all over the UK just to come here, we have had customers arrive from France, Romania and Germany just for a tattoo and now with body piercing being on offer, it can only be great for all the other businesses in Littleport,” concluded Beynur.
