About The Ink Effect

The Ink Effect is a custom design tattoo studio based in Tamworth Town Centre, established by Tattooist Ricky Latham and his wife Emma in June 2018. After a number of years tattooing throughout the Midlands Ricky decided to branch out and the Ink Effect was formed.

We now have 5 artists who specialise in realistic portraits tattoos, black and grey realism tattoos, old school tattoos, neo traditional tattoos, new school tattoos and dot work/Mandala tattoos.

Our Artists offer high quality tattoos done to a professional standard. Prices for tattoos are charged for the time taken, however we do offer set piece prices on pre drawn designs. For more information please call the studio, we are available for both appointments and walk ins. 

The Ink Effect is a friendly, comfortable, clean and sanitary environment, including a waiting area and the option of private rooms. Here you can get your first tattoo as well as your hundredth. Every person has their own unique style. Our artists take body art very seriously as it is something they will be doing for life, which you will wear for life! 

Our artists have the skills and experience to provide you with quality artwork that will fulfil all expectations and stand the test of time.

We welcome our customers to bring/send any reference material or ideas they might have, we will take this and mix this with our own ideas and thoughts and have a design that’s custom designed for you ready in time for your appointment. Any changes you’d like to make our artist’s will be happy to rework the design until it’s perfect for you.


Ricky Latham - (Senior Artist) Covers all styles to a high standard, but is a particular fan off realism work. 

Arran Baker - (Senior Artist) Is our resident Mandala artist but will also cover various styles if requested.

Charlotte Edwards - (Junior Artist) Wont be our Junior for much longer, she’s progressing rapidly within the studio and covers all styles.

Katie Wood - (Junior Artist) Our most recent member of the team, is particularly fond of colour work but will willingly cover all styles.

Please feel free to visit us anytime during our opening hours to discuss your ideas and/or book an appointment. We also offer the option to answer any queries or book through our facebook/instagram page.

We look forward to hearing from you.
