Fans get inked for lasting impressions of Wimbledon

Giant tennis balls, towels, and umbrellas are the typical souvenirs that many people take home from Wimbledon. However, this year, some visitors will be leaving the Championships with a more permanent memento. A local tattoo studio near the All England Club has capitalized on its proximity to the tournament by offering walk-in appointments throughout the two weeks. They heavily advertised their services on social media leading up to the event. To ensure customers don’t miss any of the action, screens inside the studio will be showing the tournament.

Jack McGoldrick, co-owner of Wimbledon Tattoo Studio, revealed that they have received inquiries from people all over the world. One person from China even messaged them expressing their desire for a Wimbledon-themed tattoo featuring tennis rackets. Another customer from America requested a tennis ball tattoo with “SW19” on it. In response to the demand for tennis-related tattoos, the studio decided to offer discounts on such designs to promote their business. McGoldrick mentioned that the studio has experienced a significant increase in bookings since the arrival of tennis stars like Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek on the famous grass courts.

The surge in popularity is evident in the studio’s daily messages. Previously, they would receive around five to six inquiries per day, but now they receive between 50 to 100 messages daily. Many of these messages are from people visiting from outside of England who want a Wimbledon or London-themed tattoo as a reminder of their stay. So far, there haven’t been any outrageous requests, but with one week of the tournament remaining, there is still time for someone to ask for a tattoo featuring Roger Federer, the record eight-times men’s champion. McGoldrick jokingly expressed his hope that someone would request a tattoo of Tim Henman, a former British player, while sitting on the grassy bank at Wimbledon known as “Henman Hill.”
