Established November 2008, Black Hive Tattoo is not a meat grinder, turn and burn tattoo shop.

All of our artists are encouraged to only do as many tattoos as they can realistically handle each day, and the shop’s public hours are limited in order to provide more personalized service for each client. While this may create a wait time for you as a client, experience has shown us that you can’t be all things, to all people, at all times.

If you can give us the time we need to create your tattoo, as well as have some patience with our consultation and appointment process, we will give you the best design possible. BUT if you need to get your tattoos fast and cheap, we are not the tattoo studio for you. After all, do you want the absolute best we can do, or just the best we can do on short notice?
