ON Saturday September 18, Brits can get a free tattoo from some of the nation’s most famous tattoo artists when they get their first Poke House poke bowl, which will also be free on the day.
Not only that, if they commit to getting a tattoo of the Poke House logo, they’ll receive free poke for life.
This comes as internationally renowned chain, Poke House, opens its first UK restaurant, in London’s Notting Hill – bringing Californian soul and Hawaiian taste to the capital – and is inviting its first wave of customers to rep the Cali-lifestyle with them, with more than 100 free tattoo designs available on the day.
For poke and tattoo fans alike, get the Poke House logo – a fish wearing a pair of sunglasses – on your body, for life, and you’ll receive free poke bowls for life.

Working with world renowned celebrity tattoo artist Ricky Williams, owner of South City Market tattoo studio – who has a waiting list of over three years and usually charges in excess of £500 per hour – for one day only at Poke House on Portobello Road, guests can choose from a selection of Golden State themed tattoos created by Ricky’s South City Market team, whilst they enjoy their first, freshly made poke bowl from the renowned House of Poke.
Visitors of Poke House are transported to California for an endless Summer courtesy of a multisensory experience – filled with Cali-House music, San Diego art, cacti, neon lights and fresh, healthy, vibrant food – so what better way to continue repping the Cali-lifestyle than having it tattooed?
Guests can choose from a selection of specially designed tattoos including a grizzly bear, surf board, waves, palm trees, sunsets, sunglasses or of course, the Poke House logo. In order to keep timings running smoothly and get as many people through the door as possible, each artist has created a ‘flash sheet’ of options for guests to choose from.
South City Market tattoo artists doing free tattoos on the day include Kamil Arthur, Marcin Potoczny, Ellie Nancy-Mae, YesYesRudeBoy and Charlotte Glatt. Tattoos will be on a first come first served basis on Saturday September 18th, as the brand brings together the best of both worlds in a European-London fusion at Poke House, 214 Portobello Road, London W11 1LA between 10 am – 9 pm.
It’s not just the look, feel and tattoos that makes Poke House stand out from the crowd, it’s the taste, which has captured hearts and taste buds across Europe. Dressings are created in-house from a closely guarded secret recipe and every bowl is made with the freshest ingredients, sourcing all fruit and veg from local suppliers.
The ever-evolving menu includes a core range of House Specials, including the Sunny Salmon and Spicy Tuna, plus specials created especially for each local market every bowl made to order. Poke House adapts its menu to each city’s needs and tastes, with a new limited-edition recipe added to the menu each season, even serving a special breakfast option for those early risers.
Customers are at the heart of everything that Poke House does, so bowls can be easily customised to suit any taste, and with a selection of bases, proteins, greens, dressings and toppings there is over 1 million possible combinations.
Poke House recently acquired famed London poke brand, Ahi Poke, back in April of this year, and the UK menu reflects the most iconic dishes from both brands. Among the House Specials, customers can also have fun making their own recipe to experience new, mind-blowing combinations.
