About Us

Home of the original Pattinson.

Shaun Pattinson opened Borderline in a small shop in Berwick-upon-Tweed in 1992.

From there he has built up a strong client base and solid reputation for crisp, clean tattoo work and customer service.

Shaun moved to bigger premises to cope with demand.

He is now joined by Chavez with Gillian handling the front desk, and laser removal. Borderline offers everything you would need from a high end professional tattoo studio.

25 years established with over 45 years tattoo experience in the studio. All styles are catered for, walk ins and custom work welcome.

Loyalty makes us family.
