"We do a bit of hair wrapping and a bit of tattooing. We got moved from the seafront about 5 years ago, so we've been here ever since. We preferred the seafront. It's a more open aspect, lovely, by the sea. You do feel like your on a street here, and the seafront seems like a more natural place to do it. We get lots of customers, it's a nice vibe down here. The band play across the road and it's a nice social area. You see friends that you haven't seen, often walk along here, you catch up. We're sociable between ourselves, we're all friends. We've got a slight competitive edge but we are friends as well!"
