Tattoo Shops For Sale

On The Road Tattoo was established in 2018 and is a pioneering tattoo studio.

*Note that this post was written during the COVID-19 outbreak 2020.*

 Lockdown has given us the chance to get the On The Road Franchise up and running,  we are expanding across the UK with more trucks on the road. The demand is most certainly there, we receive enquiries daily from areas all across the UK from people who want to be tattooed in a mobile studio.

So now we are looking for talented artists and motivated individuals who want to join us and help us develop the brand and build our business.



If you are an experienced tattoo artist with three years tattoo studio experience then this could be a great opportunity for you to own your first tattoo studio. a strong portfolio is a key to success.

Studio Owner

If you already own a tattoo studio then this could be the opprtunity that you have been looking for to expand. We can build your truck to your specification and create new opportunities for your business.


Not only is it an exclusive studio but it is an exclusive opportunity. Each studio we produce will have its own exclusive operating area. Fully licensed to operate and fully insured all you will need is talent to succeed.

Being “ On The Road” has been a part of tattooing for many years, just about every artist who goes travelling and does guest spots describe themselves as being “On The Road”. We have taken things a step further. We have built our studio into a fully converted VW Crafter truck and we are quite literally “On The Road” every day. Except… of course…. During a global pandemic.

Own your studio be your own boss

It is a great business model. Not only is it one of the most hygienic and personal tattoo studios in existence but it also has very low overheads. The studio powers itself via solar panels and batteries that charge whilst it is driven. There is no rent or mortgage to pay. Outright ownership happens very quickly. And it opens up a host of opportunities to the artist that simply do not exist in a static studio.


But now, more than ever, during the COVID-19 outbreak it has really proved its worth. Unable to operate as a tattoo studio, the tattoo race truck has been parked and has cost little more to run than a few litres of diesel when it has been started and the road tax from which there is little value for money during these strange times. There is no concern over a build up of utility bills or other debts that will have to be addressed once we get back to work.

This is not the only benefit. As soon as the green light is given the Tattoo Race Truck is ready to go, subject to the required PPE and cross contamination controls in place, the studio has two entrances and the customer will be using their own facilities in their own home. The chance of cross contamination has been completely limited.

It takes a lot of work and a lot of investment to start a tattoo studio. I should know I have been involved in four studios, all successful but none without problems. Being a studio owner means that your art suffers, there is so much more to it other than just turning up and tattooing. The tattoo race truck changes that, not only is it a very low level investment too start and own your own tattoo shop but you have the freedom to focus on the job in hand, it really is the best of both worlds.

With our mobile tattoo shop we really do believe that we have re-invented the wheel, even if only the tattoo wheel.

It really is a game changer. So if you want to be your own boss, or you think you have what it takes to build a successful mobile tattoo business then why not get in touch and explore your options?
