Anna Stevens Tattoo Artist The Rebel Hearts Tattoo Club Hove

Anna is the owner, and head Tattoo Artist at The Rebel Hearts Tattoo Club.

After leaving the fire brigade, I followed my passion for art and embarked on a new career in the tattoo industry.

I have been tattooing for 8 years and have gained experience in various studios. I love doing fine line realism; I love the precision and detail, but I also love watercolour and abstract work where I get to go outside the lines!

In 2019, I achieved my first award and had a tattoo featured in Skindeep magazine.

It's been 5 years since I moved to Brighton and I haven't looked back! I always dreamed of creating a studio that embraced inclusivity and fun for everyone, especially as a queer woman. In 2023, The Rebel Hearts Tattoo Club was born!

With my passion for tattoos and being a collector myself, I knew the tattoo life was perfect for me. My tattoo journey began in March 2023 and I have been loving every moment.

 

While I specialise in bold black work and traditional style tattoos, I am also embracing the opportunity to learn various styles and expand my skills.

 

I Can’t wait to see where my journey takes me!

Tasha is a Tattoo, Piercing & PMU artist at The Rebel Hearts Tattoo Club.

 

From my roots in the beauty industry, I've ventured into a whole new world of cool stuff like cosmetic tattooing, tooth gems, and body piercings.

 

I'm all about making magic happen with shaped freckles and dazzling tooth gems – they're my jam!

 

With a knack for adding flair to natural beauty, I love getting creative and giving my fellow Lost Souls that extra sparkle they crave. It's like art meets fun meets self-expression, and I'm here for every colourful moment of it!

TATTOO AFTERCARE

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR TATTOO

Looking after your tattoo is just as important as the tattooing process.

If you would like yours to heal well, then please follow the below instructions:

Keep clingfilm on for 2-4 hours after your tattoo.
 

  • After this time remove the cling film with clean hands and wash your tattoo with warm water.
     

  • Always use the shower and do not soak in the bath for at least 2 weeks after your tattoo.
     

  • Allow your tattoo to air dry or use a clean towel to pat dry.
     

  • When your tattoo is fully dry apply a thin layer aftercare cream, you will also need to apply the recommended aftercare cream below 2/3 times a day for the next week and then normal moisturising routine: Cocoa butter / Coconut oil / e45 cream (Do Not Use Savlon, Baby oil or Vaseline)

 

  • Its fine to rewrap your tattoo for bed time or when at work but don't do this for more then 2 days and repeat the cleaning process above every 3 hours if keeping it wrapped up. It's normal for excess ink to come out of your tattoo for the first few days after your tattoo and wrapping it can project bedding and clothes.
     

  • Wear loose clothing to avoid rubbing on your tattoo.
     

  • Do not use fake tan, perfume or cosmetics on your healing tattoo.
     

  • Do not go swimming, sun bed or sunbathing for at least 2 weeks after getting tattooed.
     

  • Do not go to the gym for the first few days after your tattoo, you don't want sweaty bacteria getting into your healing tattoo.

 

A tattoo is an open wound and will become itchy and occasionally can flake/scab when healing. Do not itch or pick at any scabbing/flaking.

We offer one free touch up within 3 months of your original tattoo. Any time after that will be charged full price.

 

If you have any questions/concerns with aftercare that aren't covered in our Tattoo Aftercare section please get in touch with us.

Thank you for your business and enjoy your new tattoo.
