Im Lou Safire. I’m a tattooist, professional body piercer, and fine body jewellery retailer since 2003. I have ran and owned Twisted Monkey Studio since 2012 in Ipswich suffolk, and catered to the LGBTQIA+ community my whole career.
As a queer, non binary person its is the most important thing for me that my studio is more than a trans friendly business, it’s a 100% inclusive safe space. It is important to get as far away from the toxic masculinity that tattoo parlours harbour and create a safe space free from judgment for all of my customers and lose the negative stigma towards the tattoo and piercing industry.
