Release the Kraken Tattoo


Release The Kraken Tattoo (formerly Velvet tattoo) opened its doors in Brighton in 2011 and was taken over in April 2017 by the head artist, Katja who is excited to take it to new heights going forward.

We aim to provide customers with a top class tattooing experience, from the initial consultation to the tattoo application and finally the all-important aftercare advice.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly and unintimidating place to visit.

We also offer body piercing, semi-permanent make-up, scalp micropigmentation, laser removal and even have an in-house hair stylist!

We are proud of the standard of work we provide and consistently exceed all health department regulations and standards.

Katja, our head artist, has been tattooing since 2001 and can turn her hand to any style. Transforming your ideas into a tattooable format is what she does best.

Nina can turn her hand to a variety of tattoo styles, but particularly enjoys expressing her creativity in pointillism tattoos. Taking inspiration from her greatest passions in life, from the delicacy of nature to the epic technical forms of sci-fi movies, Nina has a great passion for all things botanical and fantastical-expressed through her carefully crafted dotwork tattoos.a NNNparagraph.
