With a distinctive style influenced by religious art, Italian emigre Mo Coppoletta is among the UK’s leading tattoo artists. His parlour, the rather ominously named The Family Business, in the atmospheric Exmouth Market is the place to get inked in London.

Note that appointments with the artists must be booked months in ahead.
