I continue to think of things I want to have done, just so I can keep coming back for more!! I cannot recommend Design 4 Life any higher. Five star work by five star tattooists.

      My girlfriend and I came all the way from Canada, and I got my first tattoo done with Alex Dragos, and I couldn’t be happier with it. He was very understanding when it came to my budget, and made sure that he stayed within it. The overall experience was great, and I knew that Alex would do an amazing job from the beginning. I would definitely recommend this studio to anyone who is going to Liverpool and looking for professional tattoos and amazing artists. Thanks again guys!
