Martin has just done a cover up tattoo for me after recent cancer treatment and surgery left my existing tribal tattoo feeling a bit sorry for itself. So happy with my new tattoo I never thought a cover up could look so good and the quality of the work is fantastic. Made me feel relaxed as he is so approachable and friendly if u want a tattoo or cover up this is the place to go. Thanks Martin

I haven’t a bad word to say about this studio! Michelle has been my artist on my spinal piece and I will be booking into Dragonfly for my next piece too. The studio has just had a complete refurbishment and now not only does that work on your skin look fantastic, but the studio is fresh, clean, modern and open. The open plan means that is is a very relaxed setting. Martin & Michelle come highly recommended by myself.

delighted with the tattoos recently had done , would recommend to all , quality
Absolutely amazing, couldn’t be happier with my tattoo. Martin is really friendly and easy to have a laugh with, will definitely be booking my next tattoo soon
Staff were unbeliveably nice, make you feel so relaxed and comfy before ever starting to mention tattoo’s, never seen another place like it. The standard of designs and ideas they come up with are amazing and it doesn’t take them days to do it either, can turn your ideas into awesome masterpieces. The amount of attention to detail leave you gobsmacked by the time they have done just makes feel like a addiction as you just want more. Five stars for sure
One word- Amazing!
Was recommended Martin by a friend after being let down at the last minute by a tattooist I’d been booked in with for months – phoned Martin & explained situation & he managed to fit me in. Was well chuffed because these tattoos were for my birthday!! Got there & after explaining what i wanted was straight away convinced it was fate that the other tattooist let me down & that Martin was the guy I had been waiting for to do my cover ups! I am always a bit nervous & scared when it comes to the pain but Martin made me feel completely at ease & made the pain bearable! The tattoos are over & above what I wanted, they are absolutely beautiful!! I am so pleased, I can’t stop looking at them & needless to say I am booked in for more!! 🙂 Thankyou soo much Martin!!

I went to dragonfly,with a vision of the tattoo I was looking for, after already visiting several other tattoo studios leaving disappointed. Not one tattooist made me feel they had interest, care or attention towards my design.
I was almost at a lost end with finding the tattooist I wanted for my first big piece. That’s quite a statement when I have already been tattooed with smaller designs (6 times) and not once gone back to the same artist/tattooist.
Michelle on entrance made me feel very welcome and showed interest in my ideas.
She introduced me to Martin and was extremely positive about his work and told him what I was looking for.
Martin straight away with his calming nature made me feel my design was spot on, it would be easy for him to create and assured me that the design would be drawn to make it my own plus personal to me.
Not long after, I went in to see my finished drawing and had exactly what I was looking for. Martin did everything he could to fit me in at his next available slot as he was aware of my excitement to the situation.
I’ve since had the work done and couldn’t be more pleased with my tattoo.
I wouldn’t go to anyone else now and I have finally found the tattooist I will stay with when I want something new.
My partner Chris has also started his sleeve and almost all the outlines done, he was nervous about getting it perfect and Martin made sure that was possible by working with us to design it. I am genuinely thankfull to Martin for all the hard work and effort he has put into our tattoos and can’t wait to see my partners finished piece.
Once again THANK YOU!

martin completed the most beautiful individual wings on my back (my whole back – he’d only just opened the shop!) and since has added some very important quotes for me and a stunning Buddha and black rose to complete the piece. found my tattooist for life.
Having a 3/4 sleeve done by martin, who i`ve known for around 15 years, great kid, great artist. the shop is nice and tidy, and comes with a relaxing ambience to calm any of those pre-tatt nerves that may be hanging around! i particularly enjoy the links with the local community that the shop attracts and the characters associated with it, all making for a very enjoyable occasion.
p.s, i think the coffee machine may have been broken while i was there! yes mandy,you!

Just a quick note to say thanks so much for my recent Link (from Legend of Zelda) tattoo that is currently healing very nicely. It’s my first tat and everyone made me feel very comfortable and welcome. You made the whole experience very easy and did a totally fantastic job. I’ll be recommending you to everyone.
currently having my sleeve done here (by Martin) and the work is literaly second to none!
about half way through now and once its finished i will be getting all my tat’s from Martin… (having had other tats in coventry which are mediocre at best) the shop is relaxed and you feel part of the shop/group as soon as you go in as everyone is very welcoming! my missus also had a tat here(which is awsome), a tiny bit of colour was missed by another artist (who i think has left now) but Martin filled it in and spent an hour adding more shading to the piece just for the fun of it and didnt charge us either… simply put, if you need a tattoo this is the place to go!!! 12/10 rating from me…
Thank you so much!
All of you were amazing with me – it was my first tattoo and I was very nervous. Its obvious how much you really care and how unique you want each design to be.
I cannot thank you enough, I adore my tattoo and I’m sure I’ll see you very soon for my next one!

Love love love loveeeeeee my tattoo:) I literally can not stop looking at it, Martin you did an amazing job 10 out of 10. I’ll be coming back to get another one very soon!! Thank you again.

dragonfly was recomended to me as now aged 69 thought it time to get me tats finished if one ever does .lol
ive had several done over the years in other cov tattoist and thought they were ok
but this place is great, first name terms soon as you go in and any help you need to get the tat your after
soothing back ground music and lots of banter and chat makes it a pleasant place to be while you have a truly great tat to be be proud of [ ive allways had jess do mine ]
i found the price very good compared to others thought they had got it wrong
10 out 10 to them . gh.
Absolutly amazing work martin can’t say thanks enough for the full sleeve u gave me I feel very lucky to have had u work on me and the atmosphere in the shop is relaxed and pleasant and always made to feel made to feel welcome so again thanks martin u did a quality job m8
Me and two of my mates got our tattoo’s done today as we love them. Clean, friendly, helpful, great art work and would recommend them to anyone looking to get a new tattoo.
Best in cov! Decent prices friendly relaxed atmosphere only bad thing is I’m now addicted!
I have always wanted a tattoo, but was always unsure what to have and where! After seeing the excellent tattoos Martin did for my brother and dad it made me wanted a tattoo even more!! I found something I loved, showed Martin, he made a few tweaks to the design and within an hour I had my first tattoo! Dragonfly Studio is by far the most cleanest and clinical tattoo and piercing establishment that I have ever been too (I’ve been to a few with friends, to support them). Martin is an excellent artist and very professional, he also was very good at keeping me calm as I was real nervous! I have no hesitation in recommending Martin and the Dragonfly Studio to anyone.

took in a few rough ideas of the design for my tattoo i wanted and Martin came up with a design that i was amazed with so much more detailed and artistic that i could ever imagine. only had the out lines done for my first visit and im so proud of it im still smiling now, going back for the shading and i cant wait. i can honestly say the man is AWESOME an all round top man. his prices are very reasonable too for the quality of work he produces.

Would like to thank you for the incredible work you did on myself and my girlfriend, really top bloke and will be back in the future for any other tattoo i would want, i would recomend you to anyone i know, by far the best in coventry. Thanks again martin.
Wen to Martin soon after he opened in Coventry for a tribal tattoo across the top of back and shoulders – superb and very pleased. Been longing to get back and extend his artwork over the top and down the shoulders. See you soon Martin. Have you got a booking system yet :o)
Still loving my bunny on my wrist! 🙂 going to pop and c u as want a tattoo on my foot! 😀
i had spent the last 4 years wearing long sleeve tops due to the mess created by a poor tattooist,in january i visited Martin for a consultation on a cover up with the expectation of a large piece of tribal being my only option….. instead Martin has created me the most beautiful tattoo made up of Lillies, very feminine and you can’t tell that it is a cover up FANTASTIC ! Martin you are a life saver a very talented man and i can’t recommend you highly enough, i am looking forward to summer this year!

Martin is a great tattooist, hes doing my draginon on my back, which has been out-lined and waiting to heal then going to have it coloured, i love it already, makes you feel at ease, (well) considering being tattooed and has a laugh, he’s a great pal.
Love my tattoo, it makes me more sexually appealling to women
