My name is Darren Burton, I’m a professional Tattoo Artist and owner of Vintage Soul Tattoo Studio, based in Syston Leicestershire.

img055Much to my Mums dismay I have been an avid artist since I could hold a pencil, I vividly remember Mum and Dad having to redecorate the walls more than once.  As a young boy I remember being fascinated by my dad’s old school tattoos and we were often found at the weekend in the local Tattoo Studio.  I got my first tattoo at quite a young age and that was it, I was completely hooked.  From there I would buy tattoo magazines and dream about becoming an artist. Unfortunately I listened to every one else’s advice and got a ‘proper job’ as a plumber. Over the years I would spend all my spare time drawing tattoo designs for my friends and the desire never left me.

After a few Jack Daniels we talked about our dreams and aspirations and it was like a moment of clarity, I decided to be what I know is in my blood, a Tattoo Artist.  That night Lynz gave me the push I needed to quit the job I hated and follow my dreams.  I have never looked back and opened my baby Vintage Soul Tattoo Studio.

Over the years I have built up a good client base, and with every tattoo I do it is always my intention to make it better than the last. I’m inspired by so many styles and artists, but I have a definite pull towards Traditional and Pin Up girls. I have big plans for the future and I plan to be up there with the best.
