YOU CAN NO LONGER REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT OR CONSULTATION THROUGH THIS PAGE!
READ EVERYTHING BELOW AND SIGN UP FOR THE NEWSLETTER OR MISS OUT!
We know it seems like a lot, but it really is all important and can keep your email from being discarded without being read.

We are a full custom, appointment only studio comprised of 5 artists with widely varying styles.
Waits to get work vary greatly from a few months to a year because of every artists’ significant work loads, but each of our artists are generally putting out a call for new projects anywhere from 3-6 months.

We don’t JUST do large projects. They are just what we seem to get the most of since the wait seems to be too long for clients that want smaller pieces.
On the subject of long wait times, keep in mind that we will not throw over an existing client to make room for an impatient new client. So, when its YOUR turn in the queue, you can be sure that we won’t push you aside for the next group of clients that can’t seem to wait to get work.

If you are an existing Black Hive client, it can’t hurt to touch base directly with your current artist if you’re looking for smaller tattoos between your big projects, but NO PROMISES…it just can’t hurt to check to see if they have a cancellation. However, if you’re wanting to start a new sleeve (back piece, etc, etc), please be patient if they ask you to wait for their next call for projects because the demand far outstrips our ability to do. After all, there’s just only so many hours in the day, week, month, year, ands on.
WHEW! ….ok, all that being said…

To be notified when our artists are taking new projects, sign up for the shop newsletter now by clicking the “newsletter” tab at the top of this page and filling out the form.

DON’T FORGET! Look for the confirmation email in the ten or 15 minutes afterwards and follow the instructions in that email to add us to your address book. If you don’t see one within 30 minutes, check your spam file.
If you get the confirmation email, but you do NOT add us to your address book, your inbox will eventually start marking our emails as spam.

YOU CAN NOT REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT OR CONSULTATION THROUGH THIS EMAIL!!
If you decide not to wait for the newsletter posts notifying you that an artist is ready for new projects and send us an email with something along the lines of “I want a tattoo. Contact me and let me know if and when I can stop by for a consult” your email WILL be deleted without a response.
AGAIN…
THE EMAIL ADDRESS ABOVE IS NOT TO REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT OR CONSULTATION!
You MUST sign up for the newsletter and submit your request once an artist has opened their books! At that time, if the artist has accepted your project, AND has made contact, THEN they will make you an APPOINTMENT for a consultation.

AND, because of difficulties we’ve had in the past, our artists will NEVER give estimates over email, and we no longer do walk in consultations.
Consultations are free of charge, but none of our artists will EVER begin a drawing or set an appointment without a non-refundable deposit.

Thanks in advance for your patience,
