The Bamboo Rooms®, home of multiple award-winning tattoo artist Keng - in Otley - Leeds (UK) and Oy -in Koh Samui (Thailand).

But you will see them at both studios as they travel back and forth.

Ken at Work

The Bamboo Rooms® are multi award winning and world record breaking tattoo studios based in Otley – Leeds (U.K.) and Koh Samui – Thailand. Both studios specifically specialise in the ancient art of bamboo tattooing which is traditionally learnt in the temples of Thailand by high monks. We also specialise in permanent cosmetic tattooing using the bamboo method which is very quick to do with no swelling and no painful touch ups. The Bamboo Rooms® was originally established by world record breaking UK-THAI tattoo specialist, Keng, who has his work featured in many books and publications worldwide, including Tattoo Master.

We have now expanded and have been joined by Oy who has been a master of his art since the young age of 16. Our studios and artists work within the UK health and safety guidelines and our U.K. studio is licensed accordingly.

Keng and Oy are considered to be two of the best bamboo tattoo artists in the world, both possessing a natural artistic talent. You will not be disappointed by choosing our artists to design your next creative and personal tattoo.

We are trying to raise the profile of the tattooing industry by providing a new level of service. Our ultra-modern tattoo rooms use only state of the art equipment and follow the highest hygiene regulations taken from the UK and Europe. Keng, a U.K. / Thai is first aid trained, holding a U.K. Health and safety license which allows him to work in the U.K. as well as Thailand.

We are not your average tattoo studios. We don’t use flash; instead we custom draw all our artwork free of charge in order to give each customer a special, original tattoo.
