Ive had several tattoos done by spider over the years and recently went in with a rough but not complete idea of what I wanted doing and as ever Spider managed to work his magic and create an amazing design.
Can't wait to return for more!
(Mon 13th Jun 2011 at 22:40)
best artist around my previous 3 tattoos were basically stencil and shaded in. I took a design into spider stars and swirls he mentioned swooshes Lol and placed 7 stars on my thigh and worked his magic i woz so frickin shocked how much better it looked then the design. 2yrs on my tattoo is stil brand new and it surprises me how after 2yrs on black skin my tattoo looks brand new. I need to go for more work! Thx spider
(Wed 8th Jun 2011 at 18:18)
Spider did my tattoo 8 years ago and it still looks great. Still blows my head how he came up with the tribal design in minutes. Great artist all around and I wouldn't even think about using anyone else. Thanks spider
(Wed 1st Jun 2011 at 16:34)

Spider has a true talent in art --dont go anywhere else in the Midlands for ink
(Wed 10th Nov 2010 at 16:57)
Spider done an amazing job on my girlfriends back to hide an ugly mastectomy scar. A totally brilliant, unique job and the scar is completely hidden. Even though it is a few years since the original work, the colours are so vibrant, that you would have thought it had been done days ago. Thanks Spider, you made a massive difference to my lady.
(Mon 8th Nov 2010 at 22:30)
Spider is one serious tattoo artist.
Ive had the 2 done by him so far and what strikes me most about the man is not only how creative and artistically brilliant he is, nor how capable he is of replicating just about anything perfectly; but how technically precise he is with the tattoo machine. So impressive!
He simply does not miss a beat and so his work is truly outstanding!

Spiders work is fantastic, I've just had my third and final sitting for my half sleeve and I'm really pleased, he's a good guy aswell, he really takes pride in his work, can't wait to get my other arm started now !
(Wed 29th Sep 2010 at 00:15)
Spider is absolutely brilliant, I could rave about his work all day, He has started a Saint Christopher off on my arm and the detail has just blown me away, I wouldnt go to anyone else now, Hes a quality bloke aswell and he dosent think an idea will look rite he will change it to look better, One word LEGEND,
(Mon 27th Sep 2010 at 21:25)
Been past your old shop a few times and thought you'd disappeared, am so happy I have found your website, I'm coming in on booking day...been too long since you finished my Munsters tattoo xx
(Tue 21st Sep 2010 at 19:48)
The best tattooist in the universe. Cant wait to get my wedding ink done by u sir!!!! New shop looks fabulous.
Big hugs. x x
(Sun 12th Sep 2010 at 17:43)
I got my first tattoo when I was 19 and didn't really look in to where to go for it so just went to my local one which at the time was a place called tattoos by richard in cotteridge. BIG MISTAKE! because of how it turned out i was reluctant to get another. I then had 3/4 of my friends recommend Spider, he touched up my old tattoo and put his own style on it and it now looks amazing. I am booking in again in October to get a sleve and chest piece done. He is an honest guy who will tell you what he thinks and what will look best. if you want a decent tattoo by a professional then this is your place!
(Sun 5th Sep 2010 at 12:54)
Going to spider is a different experience to other tattooist. The things he does with tattooing, I didn't think were possible. I've seen hundreds of Virgin Mary tattoos and not one is the same as mine. When he says custom work, thatís what you get! Iím 100٪ confident with any work he'll do and cant wait to clock up a lot more hours in his chair.
(Sun 1st Aug 2010 at 14:50)
Soooo glad you've not closed down! Been to your old shop twice now haha. Guess i'll see ya on the 7th :) x
(Sun 25th Jul 2010 at 14:19)
came to spider for my first tat in feb, since then i have had another 2 from him, and planning to get my sleive done by the end of the year.
its true what everyone has said about him, the work is amazing, and he is the soundest bloke.
just the general level of advice, deign and skill that goes in to the tat. like my friend said, u dont go for a tattoo, u go for a piece of spider artwork
(Thu 22nd Jul 2010 at 21:23)
I THINK I MAY BE 1 OF SPIDERS 1st CUSTOMERS IN V HAGLEY ROAD SHOP , BACK IN V DAY BOUT 15 YEAR OR SO , THE DAY I MET HIM , I CAN REMEMBER LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY , HE RESTORED MY FAITH IN TATTOOING , HE IS A GR8 BLOKE , TRULY PASSIONATE ABOUT HIS WORK ,I HAVE HAD QUITE ALOT OV WORK DONE OVA V YEARS , INCLUDEING A FULL BACK PIECE , 5 PORTRAITES N LOTS OF OTHER WORK AND I CAN HONESTLEY SAY I HAVE ENJOYED EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF THE EXPERIENCES "WELL ALMOST LOL " SPIDER IS A TRUE PRO N V MOST TALENTED THAT I KNOW , CHEERS M8 , C U SOON , TIN-TIN .
Spider did my 1st tattoo a few years ago.....I now have a full sleve and planning much more and for 1 reason the man is a genius.
See you Wednesday mate look forward to the pain......
(Fri 9th Jul 2010 at 21:11)
Thank you Spider! :) He did mine and my sisters first tattoos today and we are so pleased with them...we couldn't have imagined them to be more perfect!
Can't thank him enough x x
(Tue 29th Jun 2010 at 23:10)
spider did my whole back a few years ago ,a japanese scene, fantastic art work , he is an amazing artist . he is the only tattooist i would recommend ,he,s done art work on my daughter too , simply the best .
(Sat 26th Jun 2010 at 21:08)
i had a full thigh HR giger piece done,i let spider do what ever he wanted & how big he wanted to do it,11 hrs later its my pride & joy!! i will always recommend him! cant wait to book in for the other leg
(Fri 11th Jun 2010 at 10:31)
Had a tribal and glass piece done on my right arm a few years back, and an extention done to one on my right leg, amazing work! Definately use spider again and refer all my family and friends to him!
(Thu 10th Jun 2010 at 21:04)
have known Spider for 30 years, he always was the best artist even at a young age! He did my first tattoo when I was 19 and he has done a further 10. the latest being my family portrait of my wife and children. My experience of tattooists are their are ones that "paint by numbers!" and the "True artists" Spider's work, designs, imagination and skills are outstanding, He is a True Artist and by far the best tattooist and friend.
(Thu 3rd Jun 2010 at 20:04)
I'd never had a Tattoo before and I'm 50+ but after my son had his 1st one done by Spider, I just knew he was the person to trust with my 1st tattoo. He made such a fantastic job of it I had him do another one on my other arm. A number of work mates have now visited him...BRILLIANT bloke and a BRILLIANT artist. He's now got the shop he deserves. All the best SPIDER.
(Thu 3rd Jun 2010 at 19:48)
Really don't know how any other tat artists within a 20 mile radius stay in business. could really not recomend any other artist then spider.
(Tue 1st Jun 2010 at 21:32)
Alright spider new shop looks great just like my right arm can\'t wait to get my left arm finished, now that I\'ve found u I won\'t look at any other tattoist the same, ur the dogs !!!!!!!
Keep up the good work m8.
(Tue 1st Jun 2010 at 10:59)
I waited years for my first tattoo,trying to find the best, and i found him. Absolutely amazing. The mans a genious

(Thu 27th May 2010 at 21:19)
This guy is a genius,the challenge I set him to cover up some old tattoo I thought was impossible, he is amazing he created my half sleeve's I'm well chuffed I'd never go any where else. He's the man. Cor wait to get the rest of my sleeve done. Congrats on the new shop dude.
(Thu 27th May 2010 at 21:04)
Spider is not only a genius and a awesome tattooist but a fantastic cool guy who will take your ideas and create the most amazing designs ever.If you want a tatt he really is the only man to see.
