Founded in 2016, Shades of Blak Studios was born out of a passion for Traditional Japanese tattoos, drawing and painting. Our founder, a skilled painter and illustrator with over 15 years of experience, wanted to create a studio that focused on quality, creativity and higher medical standards.
At Shades of Blak Studios, we believe that every tattoo should be a work of art. That's why we work closely with our clients to understand their vision and create custom designs that exceed their expectations.
Over the years, Shades of Blak Studios has received numerous awards for our exceptional work. We have been recognized for our creativity, attention to detail, and commitment to safety. Our work has been publish by Gordon Toi (Author of Dedicated by Blood), World of Pencils, Fox News 40, Digital Journal and Michigan University.
