1770 is located over 3 floors in a period “cottage” just on the edge of Brighton’s lanes, moments from the sea. We have been open since 2005, which makes us one of the longest running tattoo shops in Brighton. For the first 11 years we were the “sister” shop to the famed Into You in Clerkenwell, London that ran from 1993-2016. We fancied a change and have been called 1770 since 2016. Our family of artists have all been tattooing for quite a few years now, and between us we have around 100 years combined experience! Many of us have traveled extensively and worked all around the globe and we are happy to have settled here in beautiful Brighton, one of the most liberal cities in the U.K. Our tattoo experience is second to none, and we pride ourselves on the best possible hygiene standards, even more important in this post Covid world!
Our shop is a great place to visit, filled with natural light and stacked with interesting artworks made by us and some of our extended tattoo family. As artists we all have differing approaches and styles, but we see tattooing as a collaboration between artist and client and our aim is to make a tattoo that YOU are happy to wear for the rest of your life. We specialise in custom tattooing, and work mainly by appointment, however feel free to call, email or drop by and we’ll try and fit you in. Times have changed since many of us started tattooing, but we don’t follow the crowd and are considered some of the very best on the south coast. And yes, we do have vegan inks! See you soon.
