Bloodstone Tattoo Collective was established in January 2017 by Nathan Hamilton. When the studio was first opened Nathan's main vision was to create a professional and welcoming environment for customers to receive high quality tattoos. Since 2017 Bloodstone has grown into a multi service company, however we are still true to this main goal of professionalism and customer care. 

Every customer is important to us regardless on the size or cost of their tattoo. We are honoured to be given the chance to work with you and give every appointment our full attention. All tattoos are booked in advance and allocated a generous amount of time, allowing you to take breaks if needed and allowing us to create our best work without being rushed. Our tattoo are carried out in a private room away from the public giving you a peaceful, quiet and sanitary environment to get comfortable and enjoy your tattoo. 

When founded in 2017 the studio was located at 49a William street, Lurgan. The studio was a first and second floor property made of up a main reception room and a private tattoo room. Although small in size, this studio would be the studios home for the next 2 years as Nathan built the Bloodstone image, employed our piercer Laura and hosted different tattoo artists. 

In May 2019 feeling that Bloodstone had outgrown the studio, we moved to our current property at 82 William street. This larger space allowed us to expand the range of services offered to the public. Our tattoo room is still a private area upstairs away from the public eye, however more space allows us to host guest artists traveling from Europe. We now have a private piercing room on our ground floor as well as a spacious waiting area for consultations.  In September 2019 we were joined by Aoife O'Hagan barbering to provide a walk in barber service on the ground floor of our studio.
