New Beginnings...

Things have changed massively at Nine recently with the departures of Kirsty Bateman, shop owner/ manager of six years and, Nine/Temple Tatu staples, Nigel Palmer and Ade Stacey.

Myself (Kirsty Simpson) and Jack Applegate are the new, proud owners of Nine and are looking forward to Brighton tattooist Jonny Breeze joining us on the 18th Nov 2014.

We have Lea Nahon doing a spot with us in January and are always on the lookout for new guests. If you're interested drop us an email

And Troy Beard doing general shop managery wizardry and providing a creative kick up the proverbial (check out his artwork- he's proper good).

We have lots of new ideas that will come to fruition over the next few months and are still looking for full and part time artists and guests. In the meantime keep an eye out here and our shop and personal instagrams @nineboycesstreettattoo @kirstysimpsontattooist @offshoretattooing @jonny_breeze @bakuviousvondoom @chasen9ne and our facebook page for updates.

Thank you all for your continued support and here's to an outfit that promises to be so much more than the sum of its parts...
