Black Sails have been established in Brighton city centre since June 2010. Whilst we are a custom shop, all of our artists specialise in one particular style of tattooing. 


Dan's focus is on oriental tattoos and black & grey. 

Lisa focuses on dotwork and blackwork.

Lewis work is heavily influenced on traditional style.

Matt Watts' is currently influenced by traditional and black & grey designs.

Raff focuses his work on a neo-traditional style and watercolour.

Mike works mostly on horror and black and grey.

Jake’s work is focused on a neo-traditional, with a penchant for dinosaurs.


We mainly work by appointment only but can normally accommodate small walk-ins on a daily basis.  For walk-in appointments we recommend calling the studio ahead to check for availability.


We also offer free daily consultations with all of our artists if you'd like to come in and talk to us about your ideas.
