One of my favourite parts of writing about tattoos and tattoo culture is learning about different shops and tattoo artists from around the world. I have a special treat for you as I shine a light on a great shop with a wonderful work ethic and mindset – not to mention talented artists and a shop manager with a cute French accent (swoon) located in Dublin Ireland. When I first took a look at The Black Hat Tattoo I immediately wanted to go visit and check it out in person. The team from The Black Hat was kind enough to answer a few questions – with several team members chiming in. Of course, I encourage you to read their answers while imagining their gorgeous accents. So if you are lucky enough to be in their part of the world or attending a convention they are at I encourage you to make an appointment for some excellent ink. The Black Hat will be attending The Dublin Tattoo Convention in August 2018 sooooooo, I’m off to price flights to the Emerald Isle
TBH: We are a collective of artists who collaborate together in the pursuit of the same values.
We believe that tattooing is an art and has to be done with the respect of the customer and the artist.
We believe that every passion leads to excellence and we at The Black Hat Tattoo Studio work only to reach this excellence.
We care about the quality of our work, from the inks and materials we use to the respect of a strict hygienic process in order to provide high quality, unique and custom tattoos.
We collaborate with some of the worlds best artists either as residents or guest artists in our studio situated in the heart of Dublin.
We care for our customers from the very first step into our studio until the completion of the tattoo process.
No matter if your tattoo is big or small each piece is special for us, we know that a tattoo is a big commitment and we are happy to help our customers build their projects.
We are always available to answer all of the questions you may have and welcome you for a consultation in a warm and friendly environment.
Well if you are not already googling flights to Ireland what are you waiting for? And if you are lucky enough to live near Dublin and The Black Hat Tattoo Studio then go treat yourself to an excellent tattoo in a professional environment run by a group of true artists and professionals. And tell them The Tattoo Tourist says hi. And make Lena say something in her French accent.
A big THANK YOU to the team at The Black Hat for answering my questions! Sláinte
