Art Attack tattoo studios was started in 1977 by John Capon in Haverhill suffolk, known simply as Tattoo john’s He opened a studio in Clacton Essex in 1980 Called the Devils Den where Steve Hockley(Ipswich) and later Dave Howe joined him.
His next studio in 1984 was in Bury St Edmunds Suffolk.
But the call of the coast was too strong and In 1987 John then opened the Phoenix Tattoo Studio on the Wellington Pier in Great Yarmouth with Cambridge Tattoo Artist Peter Laddos (Pete the Greek).
Pete was missing the closeness that the greek people have towards family and left to work in Cambride with his mentor Dave Petchell, and on Dave”s retirement has opened Phoenix 2 Tattoo Studio in Mill Road Cambridge.
John has had several Studios in Great Yarmouth and has had some great Tattoo Artists work with him such as Keith Lindoff and Todd Elliott who have both gone to run their own studios.
