​Set amongst the rolling hills of Wilsthire and

quietly tucked away in the little village of

Bassett Down, you will find the glorious, the

delightful, the charming... 'Old Chicken Shed Studio'.


The Old Chicken Shed Studio is home to

professional artist Nicola King; a beautiful and

tranquil space where Nicola has designed the studio to provide Custom and Cosmetic Tattooing. It also houses a little 'nest' where Nicola can squirrel away to produce paintings and drawings and all other little creative endeavours in this inspiring setting.


The Old Chicken Shed Studio Tattoo Suite is not your typical tattoo studio... although fully sterile, fully licensed, fully insured and strictly adhering to all health/hygiene standards and regulations, the Tattoo Suite is a very welcoming, cosy space giving clients a comfortable and relaxing tattoo experience.  Nicola guarantees that all clients will be looked after throughout their tattoo journey; from your initial contact, the tattoo creation and through to your aftercare needs. The Tattoo Suite is not only located in a very secluded location, but you are also assured of complete privacy and Nicola's full attention as the Studio is by appointment only. With a log-burner, refreshments and a quaint little garden area, this is a Tattoo Suite that is home-from-home.

The Studio

Once upon a time, there was a girl, a creative girl called Nicola who liked to draw and paint and decorate people's bodies! After studying Fine Art - Drawing Discipline at Swindon College, singing with the little birdies and dancing with deer, Nicola longed to discover her artistic niche. But one fatal day while contemplating her future, Nicola dramatically fell into the evil clutches of the soul-crushing-corporate monster. Da da daaaa! But all was not lost, for Nicola quietly and secretly held onto her pencils and paintbrushes, keeping her creative flame alive under the moonlight hours. Until one day... Nicola was aghast at the realisation that no handsome (and rich) Prince was going to rescue her from her 9-5 plight. Alas, she was going to have to be the hero of her own story. Suddenly without warning or hesitation, Nicola painfully cut herself free from the thorns and hooks of corporate culture and and bravely fled from a life half-lived. All alone, lost and longing for the comfort of creative passion and fulfillment, Nicola was inspired by the delicate nudges of little whims to play her artistic curiosities into becoming a professional Henna artist. After many successful years of adorning beautiful bodies with temporary creations, Nicola decided to level up and venture into the realms of permanent ink. And it is here, in all its promising glory that Nicola finds her
'...Happily Ever After' Ahhhh xx 
A treasure chest of colourful, creative, and challenging days full of sparkle, riches and joys she never could have imagined.


Based on a true story, Nicola began tattooing in 2013 and continues to this day to refine and develop her tattooing techniques and creative style.


...she hasn't yet found her handsome Prince.
