About Colbey Joyce

Colbey is a versatile, custom tattoo artist that works in both color and “black and gray” while  incorporating a wide range of styles outside of traditional tattooing that include comic books, anime, sci-fi, and horror movies.

Colbey works Tuesday through Friday each week, and requires a one hour deposit ($160) to set an appointment, and his hourly rate is $160

*Since starting at Black Hive in 2010, Colbey has built up a  large, active roster of clientele. This means he usually opens up his books to new projects and/or new clients every 4-6 months.  *His last “call for projects” was April 2022.

To receive emails when Colbey opens up his books for new project requests, sign up for the shop newsletter. HOWEVER, for last minute openings due to cancellations and custom designs he posts randomly on a first come first served basis, follow Colbey on his Instagram account: @keeblertattoos

If you’re interested, here’s a little background on Colbey…
Colbey spent a lot of time in school drawing on his notes instead of paying attention. A strong interest in art and design led him to a job as a graphic designer. This career path took a turn at 18 when he got his first tattoo. An immediate career change ensued as Colbey started an apprenticeship in St. Marys, Georgia. He continued working as a graphic designer until he finished his apprenticeship and started tattooing full time in 2007.

Since then Colbey has been pushing himself to learn more about the craft, tools of the trade, and a wide range of art to continually improve his abilities. This drive has led him to Black Hive Tattoo where he sees an opportunity to surround himself with like-minded tattoo artists and a new world of information.
