New piercing and tattoo studio for the market.

A young female entrepreneur has brought an artistic edge to the Market Hall, opening a new piercing and tattoo business.

Ell Jayne Electric Tattoo specialises in custom designs, providing a one-to-one service in a friendly, relaxed studio setting.

Styles available include black and grey realism, American traditional, full colour neo-traditional, scripture, portraiture and many more.

Hidden gems

Owner Eleanor Jayne Munro talked about her experience since opening the tattoo studio, saying:

‘I’ve been busy since the start of the new year, welcoming customers wanting everything from body piercings to a straightforward “Accrington Stanley” script.

‘And at the rare times when I’ve not had customers, it’s been lovely to spend time with some of my shop neighbours.

‘It’s crazy how much you can fit into these balcony units – there are hidden gems I didn’t know existed until I moved up here.

‘There are so many crafty and creative individuals, I’d urge anyone to come and have a look.

‘And this year especially, why not consider shopping small and local more often?’

Market manager Sameena King echoed Eleanor Jayne’s sentiments, saying:

‘Sometimes shoppers can forget there are several small businesses doing exciting and eye-catching things in our balcony units.

‘We’re well known for having plenty of food and drink options available – especially downstairs.

‘But our artisan and creative business owners are just as worthy of the spotlight.

‘And Ell Jayne Electric Tattoo studio is the latest example of this – a young woman with the energy to match her talent.

‘And thanks to the range of styles she’s comfortable working in, she’s proving popular with customers of all ages and styles.’
