Located on the edge of Alfreton town centre is a unique new business, offering everything from vinyl records and retro clothing to tattoos.

Retro and Ink opened in Church Street in February, in a space previously used as a florist.

The shop is the brainchild of Adam Luckwell, who gave up a long-term job to turn his dream into a reality.

Joined in the venture by his tattoo artist Vince Heinze, Adam is proud to have established a business that stands out from the rest of the Alfreton crowd.

He said: “It’s a bit different.

“Everybody that’s been into this shop that’s local has said ‘finally, we’ve got something that’s different. It’s not the same old sort of stuff that’s coming into the town’. Yes, we’re a tattoo studio and there’s a few of them, we’re not just that.”

Retro and Ink’s popular Facebook page is already brimming with positive reviews, with customers complimenting that staff and available products.

Retro and Ink is open Tuesday to Saturday, between 9.30am and 5pm. It also opens between 10am and 4pm on Sundays, when tattooing is also available.

To book a tattoo, message the shop on social media or pop down and speak to the team in person.
