Who we are

Tashasquare

Tasha Brooks

Tasha has been with next level tattoo studio since April 2016, she has just entered her 5th year of tattooing. Her style tends to have a bold, solid, finish to it with a modern traditional edge, though she does also enjoy working in the same style but with a finer line. She very much likes tattooing pieces that take inspiration from decorative art, anything from Paisley textiles to floral artistic works.

Originally from Cambridgeshire where she gained a national diploma in art and design, she moved to Lincolnshire to study a degree in fashion design and illustration; basing her dissertation on bodily adornment and modification, she worked at a few creative jobs whilst getting tattooed in her spare time until eventually getting a tattoo apprenticeship. She mainly tattooed at Skinfolk tattoo studio and has guested at a few studios up and down the UK.
