‘Get What You Get’ Gumball Machine

Let the Tattoo Gods decide your fate! Be daring, turn the dial and face your trial! £50 per play. NO REFUNDS under any circumstances! Don’t like the design given by the Gods? Your money goes straight to charity.

Gumballs are on a walk-in only basis and depends on if there is any artist availability. If you are planning on coming down, give us a ring first to see if there’s any space, or chance popping in to see if an artist is free.

Did we mention there’s also FREE STUFF in there? Give it a go to see what you get…there may even been some tattoo vouchers in there 😉


“Do we have a choice of Artist?” – Gumball tattoos will be completed by whichever artist is free at the time, so there will be no choice of artist.

“Who created the Designs?”– All the designs have been created by our resident artists Gerry, Mat & Leigh. They are approximately business card sized and will be done in either colour, blackwork or black & grey depending on the artist. If you ask nicely they may take your preference into consideration 😉

“How do I Book in?” – There’s no need to book, as this is walk in only. The artist’s pre-booked appointments of course take priority – so the best thing to do is give us a ring on the day to see if anyone has space to accommodate you. Alternatively you can pop into the studio to see if there’s space!

“I heard there were Prizes?” – There are indeed! Because we love you, we’ve added a few extra prizes in the machine to be won, including t-shirts and – if you’re *really* lucky – there are some tattoo vouchers in there too! If you get one of these on your go, have no fear – you’ll still get a free turn to receive your tattoo…you lucky devil you!

“Can we see Previews of what’s in there?” – From time to time we’ll post a couple of sneaky previews so be sure to follow our social media to catch them! You can see what has already been chosen and given a home by checking out our dedicated photo album on facebook which you can view here.

“I want a Refund!” – If you decide to take on the Beavertron 3000 (aka the Gumball machine) then once you hand over your £50 there are NO REFUNDS. The whole point of the gumball machine is to ‘Get What You Get’, so under no circumstances will we issue a refund. Don’t like the design? Wimped out? No excuses! Those are the risks and those are the rules. If you’re a chicken, don’t play 😉

“But I really don’t like the design!” – Of course if you really don’t like the design given, we’re not going to pin you down and force the tattoo onto you. You will not get a refund or another try however unless you pay for another turn. Instead, your money will be forfeit and goes directly to our chosen charity The Padley Group to help homeless and struggling people in our local community. You can find out more about The Padley Group here. We also have a charity box available for you to give spare change to The Padley Group should you wish to. Every donation – big or small – will help!
