Our Team

The Inskin Team is an excellent mix of  medical professionals, skin clinicians, tattoo artists and  therapists.

Inskin is founded by myself, Julie Johnson and husband Graham .  We wanted to offer beautiful surroundings for aesthetics, dermatology treatments, clinical services, and here’s the colourful twist – tattoos.

Our team


 Julie Johnson

I along with my husband Graham first set up our clinic within Altrincham in 2014.  Prior to that I worked within various clinics in and around Cheshire.

I  treat all manner of dermatology concerns.  From acne to moles and most other skin concerns.  I am also member of the British Institute and Association of Electrolysis and a member of the Bupa network of practitioners for work with transgenders.

In addition I work with injectable treatments such as fat dissolving injections, PRP, and B12 injections and micro sclerotherapy for leg veins and treatment for crepey skin including fibroblast.

I am delighted to be able to welcome you along to our beautiful building and treatment rooms at Inskin, conveniently located on Oxford Road in Altrincham.  We and our specialists look forward to working with you.

Graham Johnson  

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.

I work with medical tattoos such as creating the illusion of areolas and belly buttons post operative as well as bespoke tattoos

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.  I prefer 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 am finding that a whole new group of people are coming forward for tattoos who wouldn’t normally approach a traditional style tattoo studio which is great.
