Modern Body Art is still open and we are still tattooing as usual. We are however, closing for business on September 30th and until that date we are slightly changing the way we work and deal with enquiries. (You can read more about why we are closing here.)

If you have a request for a specific artist then please contact them directly using the contact form here by selecting their name from the drop down menu. They will get the email, but they may take a few days to respond. 

If you have have a more general enquiry or an enquiry about piercing or lasers, you can email us on  (but please be a little patient).

If you wish to speak to us on the phone then we have a receptionist available to take calls on Thursday Friday and Saturday every week. The number is 0121 236 0753

Lasers and piercings are available as usual until June 16 and then after that will be available on certain days, but not every day as before. You will still be able to make appointments, but the time slots will be a little more limited. Get in touch for info. 

We are no longer starting any new laser appointments I’m afraid, sorry!

Welcome to Modern Body Art.

Modern Body Art is a world-class Birmingham tattoo studio, established in 1999.

We were Birmingham’s first custom only tattoo studio, and are owned and managed by tattoo artists with a passion for the industry.

Modern Body Art prides itself on the quality of its artists and the work they produce. From the first point of contact we work hard to produce the best custom tattoo for you, all drawn by the artist you choose.

Our tattoo artists are forward-thinking and dedicated; they feature regularly in UK and international tattoo magazines and work at the best tattoo conventions. Being passionate and driven about tattooing means they constantly create the best tattoos possible, to the benefit of both customer and artist.

You can judge a tattoo studio by the quality of guest artists it attracts and we regularly have some of the world’s very best tattooists guesting with us. Previous visitors include Jeff Gogue, Xoil, Derek Noble, Tim Kern, Jason Butcher, Flo Nuttall, Ivana, Lucy O’Connell, Mike Boyd and many others. We always welcome new guest artists. If you would like to guest with us, have a strong portfolio and client base, get in touch. If you are looking for a more permanent position, we will always consider a strong portfolio, so email some photos of your best work to us and we will be in touch.

We also provide professional body piercing, with over 25 years combined experience.

If you would like any more info, to book an appointment or to discuss a custom tattoo design, call us on 0121 236 0753, read our tattoo FAQ or drop into our studio and we will be more than happy to help.
