Dark Rose Tattoo Shop 4 May, 2015

Little Daves is no more as Paul bought out Dave and renamed it Dark Rose Tattoo Shop. I've been going to Paul for at least 6 years now. He's done all my work, (even when he was working with Dave) apart from my first ever tattoo. I would never go anywhere else. Amazing work and very reasonable pricing. Paul makes you feel at ease and has no problems with tweaking the design/changing it so it will look amazing on you. Emma (Paul's daughter) is now the piercer there and she's amazing. So professional, funny and really puts you at ease. I love going to them and if I could I would waste every single penny of my paycheck there

Quite basic, but good atmosphere 25 Jun, 2011

I went here to get my belly done simply because I know they don't I.D. it isn't the most impressive place in the world, but the staff are all very friendly and didn't make me feel nervous at all. I do have to say that my belly piercing did get really infacted for about... 6 monthsish? But I wouldn't put that down to the shop, my body rejects most piercings for a few months, even if this one was a bit longer. You can get cheaper piercing elsewhere, like lobe and cartilage, but I would hardly call the prices extortion, it is reasonable. I would recomend this place, especially if you're nervous.

Got a rose on my ankle there, it looks lovely, they changed it to how i wanted it, was perfect first tattoo for me. So clean in there, my friend got her tongue pierced in there and she never had problems with it after. Nice atmosphere in there and very nice people. There should be parental consent, 18 is too high.

Cartilage Piercing 11 Nov, 2010

Me and my friend went to little daves to both get our cartilage's pierced, as soon as we stepped through the door we got a warm welcome from all the staff which is when we asked if we could have our cartilages pierced at that time. The piercing lady was very nice and made us feel very cosy and welcome. She then talked us through the risks and pain, then she drew a dot onto the piercing site, then checked to see if i wanted it there (which i didnt!) so she altered it. Then she opened a needle infront of me so i knew it was clean and sterilised, then she asked me if i wanted to go through with it and i responded. Then she clamped my ear and told me to breath "in..then out..in" then she pierced it, didnt feel a thing! Then she talked us through the risks of infection and what i should do to clean it, and 1 week later its all cleared up and almost healed, very pleased! &im also going there on saturday to get my belly pierced, looking forward to it!

I know that little daves id people and that you do not have to be over 18 for most piecings' and the law on tattooing is a guide line not law. The person who kicked up a fuss in this case is a guy trying to take his children from his ex wife, The question should be why is she out of school if that young in the middle of the day and how did she have £140 in her pocket, If she was 14 her fake id was brillent. No tattooist from Liuttle Daves was arrested because of this because they followed the law,

This Is The Truth About Little Daves 25 Oct, 2010

Right...first off I wanna start by saying little daves is amazing! I dont know why there r so many haters chatting rubbish. I got my first tattoo today and I felt very comfortable, they were all so lovely, Dave did my tattoo and he was amazing. I was impressed with his immense amount of knowledge not only about tattooing, but different tattoo's aswell. I saw a guy get a piercing and the lady was very proffessional. Little Daves is the one to go to, and they may do underage tattooes, i dont know, but this does not reflect on how clean and proffessional they are because they were fantastic. And I'm in love with my tattoo right now!

little daves. 10 Oct, 2010

me and my friend went in there to get piercings done maybe 3 weeks ago i think. We were planning to go to underground but it was closed, so we figured why not. The service was very friendly the women had chats with us and calmed our nerves, showed us what she was doing, and made us feel very comfortable. Okay it hurt, but its a piercing its going to hurt no matter where you get it done. It hasnt got infected at all. Neither has my friends. We had our helix and rook done. Its not got the best reputation admitedly but then its not got the worst ever, I wouldn't go there for a tattoo since my sister had hers done there and they screwed it up big time it looks like a big black smudge. But its fine for piercings probably better than underground everything ive had there got infected unlike little daves. They dont charge you for the jewellery unlike underground, which makes it cheaper. And they did ID us. I would recommend going there for a piercing.

I got my nose pierced 5 days ago, it went extremely smoothly and was over very quickly, it barely hurt and the man who did the piercing clearly knew what he was doing! So far there's no sign of infection and it seems to be healing already! It was a great price as well, only £10 including the stud!

Better than I expected! 11 May, 2010

I went over to Little Dave's on Valentines Day 2010, to get my first bottom lip piercing with my older cousin. I was 16 and they never ID'd me, but I look older than I am. Porky sat me down and asked if I was comfortable, or if I'd like my cousin to sit with me. I told Porky I was scared of needles, to which he joked that he can't have blood tests because he hates needles and goes green and faints, yet he's got bare piercings and tattoos. Straight away he got clean gloves on, a new, unopened needle and cleaned my lip with sterilizer. He asked me again if I was OK with going through with this and I responded. Within a few seconds it was over and didn't hurt in the slightest. After popping in the bar he ran through thoroughly how to look after my new piercing and I paid upfront £30. It swelled a bit but that's to be expected, and since healing, it's been perfect. I am now designing a tattoo and will return to Little Dave's to get it done. :)

underage 10 May, 2010

ive been going to this studio for last couple of years both for piercings and tattoos these guys are great my tatts are spot on got best part of a full body suit. Porky the piercer is top dog best around by far. the studio is clean just had fresh coat of paint. all the needles are opened fresh in front of you. i dont get where these reviews are coming from saying about 15 and 16 year olds getting tatts done ive been there so many times when they have turned people away for no ID.I think these reviews are placed by jealous local studos trying to cause a bad name. In short Great studio great guys great prices

Daves tatts 10 May, 2010

Do Not come here for a tattoo. This is a 13 year old hangout with amatuer artists and the only reason it has so much attention is because they wouldnt even I.D a 12 year old, and im serious, i know a 12 year old with a tattoo from little daves. Of the 7 tattoos from here ive seen on my mates, all but one have faded within months and many have blotched even though they havent stracted them. If you were sensible you would avoid this place like the plague and go to a proper studio, and if you are underage, just wait the extra few years, its not worth it for a crap tattoo.

studio says it all lol 23 Jan, 2010

I was actually just 14 when I had my first tattoo, just over 9 months ago. However I had had the idea many months before that even, which is quite a bit ambitious for a year 9. The idea was stolen from a friend, who had a legitimate and charming plan to get a tattoo of an American eagle on her thigh, to celebrate her mother's heritage. Not to be outdone, I decided to get a tattoo also. The next step was to decide on what. This was very important to me, because despite being ridiculously stupid for wanting a tattoo at this age, I did realise the seriousness of my decision. I knew I wanted it on my torso, that much was obvious. My parents would disown me if they ever found out. After all, at this point I had just 5 piercings, all done with parental permission. The exact placement of the tattoo would be an issue. I admired tattoos on hips, lower backs, shoulders, writs and on the nape of necks, but these were all far too obvious. I think I got the idea for having the tattoo on m y ribs from a Kid Rock music video, where a beautiful girl in a bikini on a boat had a tattoo of a peace symbol on her ribs. So of course, I wanted to be like her. The next issue: what the tattoo would be of. I eventually decided on a spider, because to me they represent freedom, power, control, creativity, and they remind me of my father. I breached the issue of tattoos with my friends. Most were shocked. Only one, who has a taste for the outrageous and had been looking for a reason to keep me around as she moved on up the social ladder, was supportive. My boyfriend of the time however, was not. I was besotted with him and when he threatened to 'never talk to me again' should I have myself tattooed, it was postponed until the week that he chose drugs over me, when I went out with this friend, 5 days into single life, and had the tattoo. I was so nervous. Her house was just a short walk from the tattoo and piercing studio where I also had a helix piercing. The studio was (at that time) notorious for its relaxed attitude towards age and the law, and my friend claimed to know many people who had underage tattoos done in the same place. Nonetheless, I dressed myself in the most mature clothing I owned as a 14 year old, and walked to her house. Conveniently it was my brother's birthday on this day, so my parents would be well distracted and would not pay close attention to my absence – nor would they be driving around Bushey. My friend was still in her pyjamas. We sat in her room for hours, me getting more and more wound up by the anticipation, and her just as much. We smoked cigarette after cigarette before deciding it was now or never (it being mid afternoon and close to closing time at the studio) and we headed out into the chilly December air. After another handful of cigarettes outside the studio, we marched in. I asked if I could book an appointment for a tattoo, and I was told that no appointment was necessary. I showed him the printout of the design I had chosen, and the tattoo artist laughed and told me that he needn't have closed his game of cards on the computer as he could do this one handed. He asked me to take a seat as he enlarged it by 25% for me (by his recommendation and with my permission) and went on to serve some other, older customers by suggesting they make an appointment. I realised that it was just children and those underage who received special treatment, or perhaps he just didn't want a written record of the proceedings. I removed my coat, and was taken to a small room at the back of the shop. I was sat in a big wheely spinny office chair, as the proper chair was taken by a man having a massive, detailed and painful looking piece tattooed onto his back. "You look like you're shitting yourself", the artist said. Just as I began to reply, I realised he mean t my friend Poppy, who was white as a sheet and clutching my hand harder that I realised she could. I asked what having a tattoo felt like, and he joked "It's like having a tattoo done." Which may have been intended to have been funny, but did not put me at ease at all. I realised that he was the infamous "Little Dave" himself when he was addressed by the other artist, and they held a light conversation about evading debt collectors. He transferred the outline onto my skin, shaved off the little hairs and spread a lubricant over it. The pain was nothing like I imagined. I would describe it as a scratching sensation, but as if someone is violently scratching a sharp pin over tender sunburnt skin. No worse than that. It was definitely bearable, and my tattoo was complete within 30 minutes. I was very pleased with it to say the least. I paid up my £30, and we left. No paperwork, no questions asked. The only aftercare advice I was given was to not scratch it, and to remove the bandage after a few hours. So my friend and I decided to head into town to show my new artwork to anyone we could find. When I got home, I was very conscious of the raw skin under my left breast, and stood hunched over slightly so the bandage would not be visible. I had bought a few packets of burn plasters to wear over the next week or so, but these turned out to be useless. I leaked fresh ink constantly for a week, after which it promptly stopped. The tattoo was scabby, and after a shower, mushy. Frankly it was disgusting until it settled down a little. I now know that aftercare is supposed to run for months after a tattoo, but once it started to look like skin again I left it and I have had no problems except that the skin surrounding the tattoo is strangely bobbly unless I exfoliate it regularly. Only recently have I noticed a small imperfection on one of the spider's legs, but I can't see it without the aid of a mirror anyway, with the way it is situated beneath my breast. If I had the experience again, I wouldn't have been so stupid. I still love the tattoo; I just hate my body around it. The tattoo is too small – Little Dave was right about that. I am in the process of designing an extension to it at the moment, which I will have added the moment I turn of a legal age. If anyone has any ideas which you think I could use, don't hesitate to c ontact me because it is a very tricky project. Advice to those looking to get an underage tattoo? Yeah, it's cool. I got attention because of it for about a week, until everyone else started getting tattoos. Now there are loads of regretful kids getting no attention. It's better to wait and make a better decision, like I didn't.

Only place for me 5 Jan, 2010

I absolutely adore Little Dave's... started going there about a year and a half ago, and they've done all of my piercings since except one. They've always been very polite, cheerful and helpful, I even managed to get a tattoo just over a year ago there, aged 14. They aren't the strictest on IDing, but they're clean and I've had no problems whatsoever with any of my piercings from there, which is more than I can say for my navel I had pierced at nearby Underground... Overall, I'd definitely recmmend Little Dave's if you want someone to really look after you and your piercing, I even took my mum there for her helix! I also happen to know they've recently tightened up on IDing, which I think is a move in the right direction for a quality studio.

Only place I go 14 Dec, 2009

I got my first tattoo done there which was a very small butterfly on my wrist, and as I was by myself, my tattooist (Paul) was really friendly and chatted to me the whole way through. I've since been back there to get 4 more bigger butterflies, my sister's name on my other wrist with a butterfly flying over, and a tribal cancerian sign on the back of my neck... I would definitely recommend it! amazing people and an amazing atmosphere..

My first tat at Little Daves... 16 Oct, 2009

I've had a few tats done in the past at various places so I have something to compare this studio to. I would say they are better then anywhere else I've visited. I turned up with a tricky cover up job and Paul worked his magic to help me cover it with a fantastic looking koi carp. Relaxed studio, friendly staff with experience and talent. What else could you ask for?

Tongue piercing 2! 28 Sep, 2009

Also need to add that the studio was very clean too. The piercer wore gloves and I saw a disposable needle new from its packet. The table he had the equipment on was very clean and I saw bottle of disinfectant around.. I felt very much at ease that the piercing I was having was completely safe.

Tongue piercing. 28 Sep, 2009

I got my tongue pierced there the other day and I love it! The piercer that greeted me was really welcoming and polite and made me feel really comfortable. Only had to wait a couple of minutes before he finished drawing a tattoo design for another customer; and the piercing was so quick and virtually painless! Started to feel really faint so he got me a cup of water and told me I could stay there (laying on the couch!) for as long as I needed. Then gave me good advice on the aftercare and what the healing process was like. Also told me that I could come back in two weeks time to get the barbell changed. Overall, really lovely people that work there and are brilliant at what they do. Am returning there soon to get my first tattoo!

The guys are great, but they may not suit everyone's idea of politically correct. The studio is extremely clean! They always show you the needle coming out from the steriliser/sterilised packet and always wear gloves! I have two full sleeves by Paul and they are by far the best work i've had done. They are extremely polite however they will tell you straight when something wont look good and wont take bullshit from a client. They are fantastic tattooists! whenever i'm there they always ask for ID from clients as i was on my first visit.

well... 30 Jun, 2009

i got my first tattoo at little dave's 4 years ago when i was 15, a few weeks after i got my lip and tongue pierced there. honestly they were not my choice because of the quality or their good reputation, i just knew they wouldn't ID me and at that age just getting something was more important than the quality. anywhere that tattoos girls as young as 15 has some serious issues, if they're not bothering to pay attention to the law it makes you wonder what else they aren't bothering with. i got 2 birds on my chest - the placement is symmetrical but the shading and thickness of some of the lines are nowhere near similar, i also got stars on my stomach, just simple black lines... even they somehow managed to turn out patchy and of varying thickness. the guys working there are lovely, i can't deny that... but considering value for money, quality, cleanliness and general all-round morals, the only legitimate reason to choose little dave's over anywhere else is if you don't have ID.

Visited Little Daves the other day for a pinner piercing. Had called the day before and the piercer was so helpful and when there on the day have never felt so at ease with someone who was just about to push a needle through my ear! Cannot fault anything in the slightest, he knew every little detail and I couldnt be happier with my piercing. Have been here once before for a tongue piercing and would not go anywhere else.

Studio 26 Jan, 2009

Now I am going to be very honest in my review Paul seems a nice enough bloke Dave is very mouthy and I do not like to sit somewhere and be told how to live my life by a jumped up little idiot. The studio is cleanish but the law states no smoking which they do (you can smell it) and its not just ciggys lol. I saw atleast two people who I would say were underaged get piercings with out any ID nor were they even asked there date off birth. My tattoo was a large pattern which is on my back it turned out patchy and when I went back I was told I had picked it. (I am a large man I can not reach the areas I apparently picked) they refused to patch it up with out me paying money out again. They then got very rude and basicaly told me to get lost and tough luck. I have many many tattoos and the only time one was patchy I went straight back to the studio (not little daves) and they apolagised and fixed it. These blokes are con artists. The toilet door was even left open whilst getting my tat. I would honestly not reccomend going to the shop your choice but not a good idea trust me.

Fabulous! 8 Jan, 2009

Little Daves is a great studio they have a great atmosphere and are extremely helpful. To some people the artists may come across as arogant but its all fun and games. I have many fantastic tattoos from little daves studio, Paul is my regular tattooist, he is extremely helpful and has helped make my ideas into a reality. I have sent many friends here all of whom are extrememly happy with their tattoos.

little daves studio 30 Dec, 2008

Was not happy, place stunk of weed and fags. Tattoo very patchy, they accused me of picking, strange how i have alot of tattoos and this is the only one that is patchy eh! All these rave reviews must be coming from the shop itself. The owner is a chancer who thinks he knows everything and thinks he is the best, slating other artists. Had to remind him to put new gloves on after finishing a previous tattoo.

The best 23 Dec, 2008

As a woman the guys at Little Dave's couldnt be more helpful and friendly. Really make a gal feel at home and comfortable. These guys are the best and so creative if you want something a little bit different. My cover up job came out fantastic. I will be back for more in the New Year.

wow 4 Dec, 2008

i wouldnt have a tattoo or piercing done anywhere else, the tattoo's i have had done in other places have been re-done at daves. As a young woman i feel safe going in by myself and my children are always made to feel welcome.

Little Daves is pretty rubbish 19 Aug, 2008

I went to little Daves and got a tattoo for my fiancee and it wasn't at all a hard job They really messed it up, it got infected and my supposodley most important tattoo ended up looking like a skin desease! They weren't the nicest of people when i first went but when i came back for a touch up they blamed me and were incredibley rude It wasn't clean and i will never be returning, i never recommend it.

Little Daves 1 Aug, 2008

I recently got my first tattoo. i looked around but then a friend recomened Little Daves. It was great, the guy who did my tattoo, was my mates dad so it felt a lot better. They kept me talking and the end result is my beautiful Humming-Bird. On my sholder blade. They made me feel at home, too the place was clean and i felt at ease. I've recomended it to my mate who's getting her first one done too.

My first Tat 29 Jun, 2008

I went to little dave's about 18 months ago to get my first tattoo and i still love it today. The man that did it was fantasy and really made me feel at ease. I would tell anyone to go to Dave's to get a tattoo. I've also had my tongue pierced there about 4 years ago and i have never had any problems with it.

Tattoo and Piercing Review 25 May, 2008

Anyone thinking about getting a tattoo here I'd really advise to do so - I've been going here for my second tattoo (which is still a work in progress) and it is by far one of the friendliest tattoo places around. I walked in with a rough idea as to what I wanted and the guys in there completely helped me out and made me feel at ease. When I went back to get it done I was really nervous but my tattooist (Dave) made me feel comfortable and him and the other tattooists were really talkative and really took my mind off the pain. The atmosphere is really friendly and relaxed and it's definitely good value for money as if I was paying in hours I'd be bankrupt by now. As for piercings, my friend got the side of her lip done and the guy, again, was really nice and she says she is really glad she got it. My other friend got the top of her ear done..and the piercing guy checked before that there were no veins etc which was really encouraging, and again this friend loves her piercing. So yes - I would totally say to go to this place if you are thinking about getting some ink done, and same goes for piercings. Hope this helps!

Hmmm... 1 May, 2008

I don't understand all the rave reviews! The guys are nice enough... However if you want a decent job I wouldn't bother going there! It's where all the little teeny boppers from Watford go because they don't ID ANYone and when I went with a friend to have her navel done I felt it was really unclean... Personally I wouldn't go there if they offered me all the piercings and jewellery I wanted in a life time for free... If you want a quick job without feeling clean and sterile feel free but I'd rather pay more money and know that my piercing//tattoo wasn't going to rot and fall off :/ I couldn't wait to start my piercing collection when I was younger but to me it's bad news when they don't care how old you are, I'd rather wait! Bring back Gifted Bhudda on St Albans Road! =(

Piiercings 13 Oct, 2007

I got my tongue done which was my 8th piercing so far. I was scared it would hurt . the actual piercing did not hurt at all . The guy who pierced me was TOP DOG.. real friendly , put you at ease , no messing about with him , really did a fantastic job and real professional . The guys there are a friendly bunch in a relaxed atmosphere. I love the guys there and am already thinking about what I am getting pierced next :o) Oh anyone thinking of gettin your tongue done . Piercing does not hurt if they get you in the right place , few days after hurts but its well worth the pain once its healed !!! Go for it!!!

Woo-hoo 27 Feb, 2007

I had 3 beautiful little butterflys tattoo'd on my belly a couple of months ago now. The tattoo studio was extremely clean which gave me great confidence, he was extremely friendly which helped me to relax and eventhough the butterflys are tiny, the detail is immense. A few of my friendz said that for what I got I paid alot but I don't think so atall, at the end of the day, I'd rather it was done properly and paid slightly more than got it done cheaply and it went wrong. Anywayz, just wanted2 say, it's wikid there and I would strongly recommend everyone to go there! x x x
