Tattoo Artist Collab

We help talented people to live up to their artistic potential

In the Black Hat Tattoo, we help tattoo artists fulfil their potential with love, discipline, and trust. Our values, people first, excellence, respect, creativity, and team spirit are grounded within the organisation. We are serious about art creation. We are committed to creating an environment for artistic people to flourish. All are respected for their art, and nothing is never done without the artist explicit consent.

Creativity is done best when they have the proper equipment, a stable income, and a positive environment. We aim to provide these conditions for our Tattoo Artists at the Black Hat Tattoo.
