Reds Tattoo

Reds Tattoo is a friendly, Americana-style tattoo studio based in Colchester.

Reds wanted to re-develop their ageing website to bring it up to speed with current standards. They wanted to improve the process for customers getting in touch while better showcasing previous work.


As this project was build only for me, I started by collaborating with Rowena Leanne (who would be handling the design) on the layout and functionality.

After all design work was completed, all assets were passed to start the process of developing a functional hand-coded website.

One of the key issues that the client highlighted was the fact that it can be difficult for the customer to convey specific requirements, when discussing a potential tattoo. This is why we created an interactive contact form allowing the user to select specific body parts where they would like a tattoo to be placed.


I did notice however, after testing, the form did not work as well as expected on mobile. Therefore I included a fallback to a more traditional contact form with a dropdown selection listing the specific body parts.

The final result was a fully responsive WordPress-based website that reflected the tastes of business itself whilst improving the customer experience.
