A NEW tattoo parlour, run by Nick Balchin and Sarah Chapman, has reported good business since it opened in Whittlesey.

The parlour, in Eastgate Mews, is called 'Jinxters' which combines the couple's nicknames.

Miss Chapman, who runs the admininstrative side of the business, said: "Nick is known to friends as Jesper and I am known as Minx, so we combined the two to name the shop."

Mr Balchin, a tattooist for more than 15 years, worked in parlours at Huntingdon and Peterborough before deciding to go it alone.

The couple, from Crowland, opened the shop with a small party.

Jinxters is open from Tuesday-Saturday (10am-5pm).
