Abz is the founder and manager of Extreme Needle Tattoo & Piercing Studios.
Originally from a broker background it was fate which took Abz away from broking and straight into the Tattoo & Piercing
industry. Being interested and having such a passion for tattoos Abz looked to combine this passion with his business
knowledge to bring something fresh to the industry.
We are ever striving to maintain what we call our dream team, which consist of some of the best award winning artists
and piercers from across the world. Our ethos is to realise our customers' vision and take it to the next level.
The studio is family friendly and provides a welcoming atmosphere to all. For here at Extreme Needle we work not only as a
team but also as a family unit and pride our selves on being highly professional at all times.
