Located at the heart of downtown London, Hanger 18 is a fully licensed and health-board-inspected environment. We maintain the highest possible hygiene standards and have onsite steam autoclave sterilization for medical-grade deep cleaning of equipment. All our needles and inks are single-use for your protection.

We regularly invest in the latest tattoo machines for superior results. We use a select range of professional inks in a full spectrum of colours to offer you the most striking designs in the colour palette of your choice.

Our studio may produce vibrant and energetic designs, but the atmosphere inside is calm, unhurried and reassuringly professional. We and our customers are highly respectful of the skill and craft of tattooing and ensure that every tattoo you have done with us is an enjoyable and often exhilarating experience.
