Who We Are

About Us

A Tattoo Studio Experience Like No Other

Paradise Tattoo Studio is a female-led business, in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, owned by world renowned tattoo artist Tanya Buxton.

We offer a variety of tattooing services, including bespoke, custom tattoo designs, scar tattoos, mastectomy tattoos, cosmetic tattooing (also known as permanent make up), 3D areola-nipple tattooing, scar camouflage and many more.

Paradise has been built with a clear ethos in mind; to help people feel uplifted, empowered and more confident through tattooing.

We began in a small, single room in 2020 with just Tanya; and in June 2021, we opened our iconic pink door to our very own premises with a team of talented artists!

With a shared vision of creating a safe and welcoming safe for all, Paradise is a tattoo studio like no other; we are proud to be paving the way in a new era of tattooing as we continue to explore and push the boundaries of tattooing and all the wonderful ways it can help people.

We believe that tattooing is for everyone, and your tattooing experience is just as important as the service you receive. Our team is dedicated to caring for each and every one of our clients, ensuring we always provide the best advice and service to our ability.

Medical Tattoo Referrals

Paradise has built many trusting relationships within the medical field for our 3D areola-nipple tattoos and medical tattoo services, with many surgeons, nurses and medical professionals referring their patients to us for our restorative tattooing work.

We are proud to work alongside many local and nationwide hospitals for our medical tattooing services, including the NHS, Bupa, HCA Healthcare and the Nuffield Hospital.

Breast Cancer Tattoos

We work closely within the Breast Cancer and BRCA communities, providing our services to help people in their healing journey after mastectomy surgery to reclaim their bodies and confidence through our tattooing services.

Paradise also works in collaboration with Breast Cancer and BRCA charity, the Mastectomy Tattooing Alliance, a charity that provides funding for 3D areola-nipple tattoos and mastectomy tattoos.

LGBTQ+ Friendly Studio

Paradise is proud to be a LGBTQ+ friendly tattoo studio, and are active, supportive members within the local queer community.

Here at Paradise we believe in the power of self-expression and the transformative benefits that tattooing can provide, helping individuals feel more comfortable in their own skin and improving their self esteem; with clients travelling worldwide for our services.

We offer a variety of tattoo treatments for the transgender community, including gender-affirming cosmetic tattooing, 3D areola-nipple tattooing and scar tattooing.

Yazmyn Lamzouri

Studio manager

There is a very good chance that Yaz might just be the first person you speak to when you embark on your tattoo journey here with us at Paradise Tattoo Studio.

Yaz loves hearing all about your tattoo ideas, and is dedicated to assisting you every step of the way through your tattoo journey. With a true passion for tattoos and a commitment to delivering an exceptional experience, we always knew that Yaz would make her way home to Paradise someday!

She has been friends with Tanya for many years (we won’t say how long exactly as it does make us feel very old!) and long before joining our team, she had our Paradise logo tattooed by Tanya – making her our no1 fangirl 💕🌴 Yaz officially became part of our team in 2023.

Fun fact: If plans involve burgers, beers and bikes (motorcycles) – she’ll be there!
