Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday
Tattoo Fixers is based around three tattoo artists who look into the stories behind tattoo regrets and the people behind them.
In the original series, Jay Hutton, Alice Perrin, Glen Carloss and Steven "Sketch" Poerter all worked in the studio to try to come up with the best design possible.
In 2018 it was revealed that Jay Hutton and Glenn Carloss would be replaced by brothers Pash and Uzzi Canby from Devon.
In the show, each client has a consultation with the artists who offer their own unique ideas to cover up the embarrassing tattoo.
They then transform it into a masterpiece, which the client is hopefully ecstatic with.
At the end the design is presented to the customer, and they can see the magical transformation.
The E4 programme’s premise is simple but immensely popular, and was even nominated for an National Television Award for Factual Entertainment.
The show has seen everything from misspelt phrases, to ex partners’ names or shocking soap lookalikes.
Embarrassing, regrettable tattoos are far from uncommon, from drunken holiday mistakes to trusting your friend too much with a tattoo gun.
The series began on E4 in 2015, and there have been six seasons – but it hasn't yet been renewed for a seventh.
Where is the Tattoo Fixers shop?
The Tattoo Fixers shop is located in Hackney, London.
However, the programme itself is filmed in more of a warehouse than a tattoo parlour.
You can find the east London filming location in Sheep Lane, and this is where they turn tattoo flops into works of art.
How to apply to be on Tattoo Fixers
While Tattoo Fixers hasn't officially been renewed, the application for the show is still available, and it invites you to register your interest.
On the application it says: "Tattoo Fixers has finished casting for now, but don’t worry, you can still register your interest for a future series!
"The fixers are looking for the country’s most shocking, outrageous and embarrassing tattoos to fix. They would also like to hear from people who are planning on getting a new tattoo.
"Maybe you have a fun, unique or interesting reason which has inspired you to get your new body ink? Get in touch today and tell us all about it."
You can apply to have your embarrassing tattoo worked on by the Tattoo Fixers team by logging onto Studio Lambert’s website, the TV production company that produces the show.
All that is required of you is that you have a shocking tattoo that you want covered up, or that you are planning on getting a new tattoo.
To apply you need to give your name, age and other personal details, but you also need to give detailed descriptions on the tattoo you want covering up, when you had it done, what the story is behind it, and what you want it covered with.
If you don’t want a cover-up, but are looking for an original tattoo done by them, you need to tell them what design you want and the story behind it.
In addition you also need to send them a picture of yourself, a picture of your tattoo (if you are getting it fixed) and also another picture showing where it is on your body.
You can apply here.
Studio Lambert warns applicants that not everyone will get a reply, as there is a high number of applicants.
How much does it cost to get your tattoo covered up?
A spokeswoman for Tattoo Fixers previously said: “It doesn’t cost to apply to be on the show”.
According to tattoo artist Jay, every client is told they can have a free touch up if they are not happy with the design.
