February business of the month
Chucks Custom Tattoos was set up in 1990 by Chuck Willmott – one of very few experienced female tattoo artists. It is an unusual take on the traditional idea of a tattoo studio, specialising in all types of tattoo from traditional to tribal, custom work to cover-ups. Chucks provides a unique environment and friendly atmosphere-combining the highest standards of artistic ability and hygiene for a top quality tattoo experience.
The studio is superbly decorated, making the most of its small shop space and Chuck has tried to increase her customer base by providing a welcoming environment for the customer such as providing albums of tattoo designs which can be looked through at leisure and by encouraging word of skin recommendation. However she recognised the need and was keen to raise the profile of the organisation.
Chuck was encouraged to proceed with the development of a website, introduce gift vouchers and develop a base of second generation tattooing-the children of many early customers. The business was also entered into the Borough Business awards on two occasions and was short listed as a finalist in two categories at the 2010 awards. It has been profiled in the local press which really helped promote the business.
After 20 years in business Chuck’s continues to thrive as a sustainable business in the heart of the community at 22 Goresbrook Road Dagenham.
