Our Studio

Welcome to Pride & Glory, a studio established in 2014 in the heart of Essex. Opened by an established tattooist and artist who has been working in the industry since 2007. Our vision is to create a new original environment for tattoo enthusiasts with our own unique approach. Pride & Glory is a truly beautiful and innovative tattoo studio & art gallery.

Located in the artistic hub of Leigh-on-sea, Essex. A historic seaside town, less than an hour away from central London, and a short distance from Southend seafront. We have worked to create a spectacular space, with classical elegance and charm.

We believe the world of tattooing has evolved. Tattoos are coming into their own as a celebrated and recognised art form, and our studio follows in this new wave, with an atmosphere to represent it. Providing a home for inspiring artists, and collectors of art and tattoos alike. We approach tattooing with a new modern view, and in doing so have created a artistic space like no other.

We encourage you to come down and experience it for yourself. Take in the innovative exhibitions, view our artists outstanding work, enjoy a relaxed chat with our welcoming, knowledgable staff and let us guide you through your very own bespoke art and tattoo experience.

Pride & Glory are passionate about creating high class standards of work, as well as providing outstanding customer service. Creating an enriching experience for the customer, all of which we strive to do at a very competitive rate.

Our artist's pride themselves on being able to take your ideas and inspiration, and evolve it into an outstanding piece of work, that turns your dream into reality. All the artist's specialise in creating work that is bespoke and unique to the individual, either by working side by side with the customer and bringing their reference and thoughts to life. Or by designing a vast array of one off, unique and incredibly beautiful pre drawn designs, for the customer to choose from.

No design or idea is too big or too small, nothing too simple nor too complicated. Each and every tattoo is given the same amount of dedication, passion and respect by the artist. Working to create bespoke work of the highest standard. Visit our TATTOO page to view an extensive gallery of the visually creative, imaginative and beautiful work our artists strive to put out with every tattoo.

We are a bespoke design, appointment based studio. You are welcome to pop in or contact us at any time during shop hours, to discuss your ideas and secure our next available appointment.

We always encourage and welcome walk ins where available. Follow us on our social media pages, to keep an eye out for updates, as to when our artist's have available space.

Our friendly team are always available to advise and guide during working hours, either by phone or in person, or feel free to email us at any time. Our expert friendly reception staff are always eager to talk you through our latest exhibition, or to discuss and guide you through your latest tattoo ideas, until you are ready to be put in the capable hands of our talented artists. Who then work personally with you to create your artwork, do whatever they can to put you at ease. Before creating you a bespoke high class tattoo of your own, in our highly professional but still beautiful and relaxed, clean, hygienic and fully licensed tattoo studio.
