Tattoo studio targeted by destructive crooks

BURGLARS have broken into a Dales tattoo studio taking cash and equipment.

Matlock Bath Tattoos, North Parade, was burgled between 6pm on Sunday 12 August and 10am on Monday 13 August.

Dodge, part-owner of the tattoo studio, said: “They smashed the place up good and proper and we’re still in the process of tidying up the mess they made.

“To be honest, I wouldn’t even like to say what I’d do if I caught up with the people that did it.”

Police said that crooks ‘attacked’ the front door to gain entry and stole tattooing needles and an undisclosed amount of cash.

Criminals also damaged the inside of store in pursuit of stealable objects.

Matlock Bath Tattoos will remain closed for the next few days owing to the incident.
