Returns and Refunds

  • If you have a problem with your order our staff are always happy to advise and help you.
  • If for some reason, you need to return part or all of your order, we try to make it as easy as possible!
  • Simply follow the instructions outlined below.
  • All returns will be acknowledged by email or mail and any refunds due will be credited back to the original payment method.
  • Please Note that if your order is lost due to an incorrect postal address being supplied by you then we are sorry but we cannot be held responsible and are not liable to refund or replace the order free of charge.  The order will have to be replaced at the customers expense.

Unopened Returns:      

  • Goods purchased from the Tinsley UK website may be returned for a refund as long as you inform us as soon as possible and no later than 7 days starting from the day after delivery of your order. This is called your ‘cooling off period’.
  • You must take full responsibility for all our goods while they are in your possession.
  • Any item(s) for return must be sent back within 7 days of the date on which you received it, unopened in their original/sealed shipped condition, together with the original packaging and Invoice, at your expense.
  • We recommend, for your peace of mind, that you return goods by a tracked delivery method to make sure we received them back here as we cannot be held responsible for any returned item that is lost on its way back to us.
  • Please note that proof of posting is not proof of delivery.
  • Items returned to us by the carrier due to an incorrect postal address will be refunded minus the original P&P.  If the order is still required this may be shipped back to you but you will be charged for the return postage.

Returns after the 7 day cooling off period:

  • Should you wish to return an item and you fail to inform us and return the item/s within the 7 days (starting from the day after delivery) we will still offer a refund for 75% of the purchase price or a credit note for the full purchase price.
  • We are sorry that for all returns, shipping (including packaging and insurance) is not refunded.

Returns Authorisation Number:

  • Before returning an item back to us please contact Tinsley UK Customer Service for a Returns Authorisation Number.
  • We are available Monday – Friday 11am to 4pm (GMT)
  • You will need to confirm your name, order number and postcode. Please have this information with you when you contact us.
  • Please note it is important that you include this Returns Authorisation Number with your package as failure to do so will delay the processing of any refund due

Important note:

  • We will not process refunds for items that have been used, or Tattoos that have had their protective cover removed or for items returned without full packaging;


  • We shall be under no liability in respect of any defect arising from fair wear and tear, negligence, abnormal working conditions, wilful damage, misuse or alteration of the ordered goods.
  • Any returned goods that we receive which are outside of this Returns Policy will not be refunded or exchanged and a reason for this decision will be provided.
  • We are happy to re-ship these items back to you at a cost to yourself; otherwise they will be destroyed within 28 days from their receipt back to us.
  • All refunds will be exclusive of the packing and postage costs incurred when originally shipping your order out.

Late Delivery:

  • If your order arrives too late for your party or event, you can return it by following the normal returns procedure.
  • If we were at fault we will refund your postage costs.
  • No postage costs etc will be refunded if we were not at fault, if you chose the wrong delivery option i.e. Economy/Standard/First Class Delivery, when you should have used one of the Special Delivery options, you were not there to accept delivery, or you did not collect from the Delivery/Sorting Office or Post Office if your package was waiting for you there.
  • A restocking fee of 25% may be applied in these circumstances.
  • If your order is late due to the failure of the carrier delivering within their guaranteed timescale  for your area and not the fault of either ourselves or yourself, we will refund the portion of the postage costs that the carrier refunds according to their carriage policy at the time of despatch.


With all this in mind PLEASE order in plenty of time for your event. Of course here at Tinsley UK we will do everything we can to help with any problems that you may have but we cannot make up for the huge frustration and disappointment that either defects, late delivery or non-delivery may cause however much we sympathise and try to help.

This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

Faulty Products

There is little that can go wrong with Tattoos but in the unlikely event that an item should be faulty or damaged, (all our items are inspected to make sure they are in perfect condition before shipping) you should let us know immediately (within 24 hours of receipt). We will then make arrangements with you to sort out the problem.
