A bespoke pop-up tattoo parlour is setting up shop in London for two days (11th-12th September), and you can get a new inking… free of charge. To celebrate the launch of the ‘19th Cork’ campaign, 19 Crimes is welcoming everyone to The Cl(INK), where you can get inked and sip on a selection of drinks.

The Cl(INK): The Lowdown

At The Cl(INK), choose from a list of 19 designs from flash sheets that have been produced by a carefully selected team of tattoo artists in collaboration with renowned tattoo historian Dr Matt Lodder. Dr Matt Lodder’s insight and collaboration ensures that the designs are authentically inspired both by the tattoos on the skin of convicts in the 18th century, and by the 18th century-Britain heritage of the 19 Crimes brand.

To give you an added taste of what an 18th century tattoo experience would have been like, the talented Jack Brown and Connor McNeilly, will be offering a modern interpretation of the traditional stick and poke method, available via pre-booked appointments only. Alternatively, the modern tattoo gun approach will be available and open for walk-ins from the brilliant Delph Musquet and Prieme.

The Cl(INK) is part of 19 Crimes’ ‘19th Cork’ campaign, providing the nation with the opportunity to win up to £1000 worth of cash prizes if they find the so far unreleased 19th printed cork. Sending the nation on the ultimate treasure hunt, a limited number of bottles of The Uprising and Red Wine will be released across the country which contain the so far unreleased 19th crime printed cork.
