WORCESTER tattoo artist Hanan Qattan has secured a five-figure funding package from HSBC UK to open a new tattoo studio in the heart of the city centre.
The entrepreneur has used the funding to purchase a two level 1,200 sq. ft. property located in Reindeer Court to launch Fox and Fortune Tattoo. The support from HSBC UK has also allowed Hanan to apply for planning permission to undertake renovation work to the listed building.
Hanan has worked as a self-employed tattoo artist in the area for eight years, building her client base and skills. The funding has allowed her to fulfil her goal of owning her own studio and means that Fox and Fortune can take on one full-time tattoo artist.
The new property allows Hanan to run a private studio whilst renting out further commercial space, which will allow her to take control of all the finances and run the business effectively for artists and clients alike.
“HSBC UK has been instrumental in enabling the opening of Fox and Fortune Tattoo, which is now an asset for life, as I now own the property,” she said.
“Our relationship manager at the bank, Vivek Joshi, has been incredible in taking the time to understand my business and my ambitions helping me to make this a reality. I couldn’t be more grateful.”
Fox and Fortune is a two-women team of tattoo artists located in Worcester which offers private appointments and consultations.
