Design fees


As we create our designs uniquely for you, we don’t follow a pricing structure.


We quote depending on the amount of motifs or complexity of your design and the time that will be dedicated it.


A 50% deposit is required before any design work is undertaken, payment is through PayPal invoice or bank transfer. The balance payment should be paid upon artwork completion (before any artwork is released. )

Design style


All the designs we create have a signature ‘Punctured Artefact’ style.  

If you like our work, then we will create a design you love!


Our mixed up style is ....


Geometric and organic • Angular and fluid lines • Symbolic & interconnected shapes •

• Symmetry is also a signature design feature, but we can also do asymmetrical designs!

• Inked in an ‘open’ style, with straight , sweeping  & tapered lines with a small amount of pointillism.

• Black (or Black with 1 or 2 statement highlight colours)



We love to design in our own unique way,  

So sorry (!) but we wont be able to take on projects which require a different style or approach. 

All seeing eye

Your inky art


We are happy to work with your ideas (if you have any!) 

Or, we can come up with some design ideas for you,

based on the kinds of things you like or that are important to you.


Inky sketchbooks


Throughout the design process you are sent ‘sketchbooks’.


Final artwork


The final design will include the outline (for stencil)  & shading plan.

High resolution files will be created & uploaded to a file sharing site, for download.

Punctured Artefact

Creates original tattoo art



Here at P.A, we treat each design as an exciting new project ....

a creative opportunity to get lost in some research, get inspired & scribble away!


We do not use any form of clip art, stock images, tattoo flash books, re worked or photo-shopped images.


Every inch of the design is created from our hand drawn sketches.


We like to take our time to create a unique design & wont rush your art!


The design will be unique to you ... No danger of anyone having the same tattoo!

Customising a flash design


Like something in the flash section but want to personalise it?


We are happy to create a custom design for you, which is based on,  or includes one of our flash designs.


Inky example


The brief


We like to create designs with symbolism, spending time looking through old books or researching meanings.


A client may give us a few words to describe their vision and where we can , we like to use symbolic motifs to create their vision.


This custom inky design contains personally symbolic references, which have been combined to create one flowing piece of art.


The main ‘inkspiration’ comes from water and an octopus.
