You ain’t ever come across anything like us before.

We’re a new tattoo studio in Essex offering a fresh take on bespoke tattoo design.

If you’re looking for fully custom designed tattoos from some of the UK’s most talented artists, you best come in for a natter.

Once we’ve cooked you up a Rosy Lee and pulled you up a lion’s, we’ll talk through your ideas to get a feel for the kind of piece you’re after.

We’ll bring your design to life with some sketches, and then, once you’re 100% happy with what we’ve drafted up, we’ll book you in for your session. We’ll let you know upfront how much time your new piece is going to take.

If you’re not the creative type, or you’d prefer something more traditional, that’s OK too. We’ve got plenty of images to hand in the studio. Just choose your favourite and we’ll follow it.

Why Penny Black?

I chose the very rare Penny Black as my Father owed one which I was amazed by as a child and loved. After he passed away, it had gone missing from his collection and its never been found. By calling the parlour Penny Black, I no longer have to search for it.

The Penny Black was the world’s first adhesive stamp. It was first issued in Great Britain on 1st May 1840 and features a profile of Queen Victoria.

The total print run was around just 286,000 sheets, and the only known complete sheets of the Penny Black are owned by the British Postal Museum. Can you Adam and Eve it?

The Penny Black is a British cultural icon - and we think our parlour is just as rare and unique.
