Who We Are
The Crew


Sheila is Aurora Inks owner and main tattooist. Sheila has been tattooing for over 9 years and opened her own studio in 2010. Sheila is married to Mark Johnson our Piercer.  Sheila can turn her hand to various styles of tattooing.  But her natural style is easy to see in her work.  You can see more in the Gallery.

You can find her work on instagram


Mark is our part time piercer.  He has been piercing for 4 years and trained under Master Piercer Richard Morel.

We will update with photos of his work as the site progresses..  


Stacey is our main front of house.  She has been with Aurora Ink for many years and is highly experienced.  Stacey  can help you with aftercare, choice in jewellery and is trained  in Jewellery changing and piercing care along with booking tattoos, consultations, etc. . 
She will also be the first person you talk to when wishing to book an appointment. 


Tattoo Apprentice 
Russell is the Studios Senior Apprentice.  He started with us early 2016.    Although it's early days for Russell he is coming on leaps and bounds.  His natural style is very comic based and we are looking forward to seeing how he progresses as time goes on.

We will update with photos of his work as the site progresses.. 
Regular Guest Artist.
Abigail is based in Sunderland working at Sunderland Body Art.  She visits Shetland 2 - 3 times a year to guest spot in the studio. She has become a firm friend and crew member. 

We will update the site with photos of her work as the site progresses.  In the meantime, you can find her work on her instagram page.  
Jason has just joined our studio as our new apprentice from Orkney.  At the moment he is specialising in making (what we have been told by customers) the best teas and coffee. He is also along with Stacey one of your first contacts when you call or visit the shop.
