Meet the team
The Inskin Team is a fabulous mix of medical professionals, skin clinicians, tattoo artists and beauty therapists.
Inskin is founded by myself, Julie Johnson and husband Graham . We wanted to offer beautiful surroundings for aesthetics, clinical services, beauty and – and here’s the colourful twist – tattoos.
I am am qualified to work with every aspect of electrology that there is and am member of the British Institute and Association of Electrolysis. I am also a member of the Bupa network of practitioners. I work with males, female, transgenders, people with PSO for hair removal and qualified to treat a wide range of dermatology blemishes and concerns including thread veins, tags, warts, moles and lesser known skin problems such as xanthelasma.
In addition I offer treatment with semi-permanent makeup skin peels, light therapy, skin needling, clinical products and radiofrequency.
I am delighted to be able to welcome you along to our suite of treatment rooms at Inskin, we and our specialists and medical practitioners look forward to looking after you and your skin.
Tattoos are my thing. I graduated at Camberwell School of Arts, London, way back, and dabbled in tattoos even then whilst creating illustrations and bespoke designs for tattoo artists.
I spent a long time working in design and illustration and then went into the education of art. I am still Head of Arts at a college but now get the chance to create pieces of art onto people’s skin. This is such satisfying work. I work with every medium there is in art but to actually create a piece to be adorned by someone forever is a huge Privilege and responsibility that never fails to give me absolute joy.
Because of my background in art, I can work with the differing tattoo styles, depending on what it is that people want. I will always try to add my own enhancement to their choices to upgrade the overall tattoo picture but of course the choice is theirs. Iprefer 3D realism and watercolour tattoos but enjoy traditional and various other styles too. Watercolour tattoos I design in actual watercolour onto paper first off, then that is yours as a present when the tattoo is finished
I work closely with art generally and apart from still teaching it, I still exhibit in galleries and am a member of the Wirral Society of Arts.
I love my tattoo room and the fact that it is based within a beautiful suite of rooms. I am finding that a whole new group of people are coming forward for tattoos who would’t normally approach a traditional style tattoo studio which is great.
