Artist Portfolios

All artists at Area 51 are self-employed and work independently. Please feel free to contact them using the links below. Please be aware that during their busy periods they may take a longer period of time to answer any messages that you send. General enquires can be handled by the Area 51 reception team, however questions regarding design work, bookings, deposits and quotations will need to be answered by the tattooists individually.


Gary has been working at the studio for 6 years. He is very well known for his realism pieces and has had customers visiting the studio from all over the world. Gary is usually heavily booked in advance and his books are currently closed. Gary will only take on work involving subject matters that inspire him. Please use the link to his website below and fill out the enquiries form to contact him. Due to the high volume of emails he recieves daily, if you have not received a response within 6 weeks please assume that you have been unsuccessful.



Danielle has been working at Area 51 for just under 2 years. She specialises in black and grey, florals, and delicate linework. Danielle welcomes ideas with a spiritual basis, but is happy to take on all challenges. Danielle takes both advance bookings, and does a walk-in service on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, on a first come first served basis. To book in with Danielle, please email her directly at, or use the enquiry form on our website.

Sorry for any in convienience


With over 18 years in the industry we pride ourselves on providing the latest techniques in body piercing. We are at the forefront of modern sterilization and sanitation protocols and our body piercing studio provides a clean, safe and friendly environment which complies with Basingstoke and Deane’s health and safety guidelines. Our staff are fully trained in multiple techniques and complex piercings and will provide expert advice on all aspects of body piercing, body jewellery and aftercare.



If you are thinking about having a tattoo removed, pop in and we can explain the process in detail, answer any questions you may have and possibly perform a small patch test. We can assess the patch test after 2 days and then, if everything is okay, laser the whole area.


Body Jewellery

We stock a great selection of body jewellery. We source only the best 365L grade surgical steel or medical grade titanium jewellery so you can be sure when buying from us you wont have any problems reacting to any impure metals.

We also have an ordering service for any body jewellery that we do not carry in the studio.

Jewellery Fitting

The piercing team at Area 51 can easily and quickly fit or remove your body jewellery for you as we understand and recognise that it can be difficult to do so yourself. You can buy it from us or bring your own jewellery in for us to fit. We charge £1 per item of jewellery bought in our studio and £3 for items of jewellery brought elsewhere. We offer a discount for multiple items. Please see our price list for further information.


Please feel free to contact us using the form below. We will endevour to reply as quickly as possible. Please be aware that we are closed Sundays and Mondays and therefore do not answer any emails sent through on those days. For tattoo enquiries we can answer most simple questions but if you know the artist you want to book or enquire with it would be beneficial to contact them directly using the details available on our tattoo portfolio page.
