Our History


Central Tattoo Supplies Ltd started trading early 2007 - established by Josie Gibson and Nicole Douglas who have experience supplying the Tattooing trade since 1991 and 1995 respectively.

Our experience began through employment with Eric and Patricia Davis who themselves (before retirement in 2003) had overseen their family business Davis Tattoo Supplies (DTS) since the early 1980’s following the retirement of Eric’s father Charles Davis.

There was a long standing family history within tattooing evolving from George Burchett-Davis, (Eric’s Great Uncle, who traded as George Burchett) the UK’s leading Tattoo Artist through the first half of the 20th century, his more prominent clients included The Great Omi, King George V, King Alfonso VIII of Spain and King Frederick IX of Denmark; while his wife Edith was ‘Professor’ George’s best model.
