Fresh vs healed.

A tattoo is more than just a piece of art and a way to assert your personal style. It’s a medical procedure too, because the artist uses a needle to insert the ink underneath your skin. That's why cleanliness is our highest priority at Black Abbey.

Any time you open the skin, you leave yourself vulnerable to scarring and infections.

Caring for your tattoo can prevent those complications and ensure that the tattoo heals properly. Both you and your tattoo artist play equal roles in this process.

Your artist will go through everything with you at the end of your appointment, and your aftercare is automatically emailed to you once you complete your consent form.

We are so grateful that our clients come back to us for further work. It makes us all feel so grateful and loved. This week everyone had a returning customer, and gave us a great chance to see how older work is healing!

Sara got to do 3 of her favourite subject matters this week and it's safe to say she had a blast with all of them. This week was her turn to knock out an amazing all day sitting, which continued on perfectly from some older work, the vegicanicum got topped up with a smug wee mushroom as well as knocking out a brilliant Witch King from Lord of the Rings, check them all out below!


We have been freckle daft over the past few weeks and we LOVE it!

Freckles have always been Fiona’s absolute favourite procedure to do, she offers standard freckles, beauty marks, freckle enhancement and constellation freckles.

Freckles give a youthful sun kissed glow, and they can be placed on the face or body. As we age, those of us lucky enough to have natural freckles can see fading in them.

Depending on the skin, these can be enhanced and brought back to life making you feel yourself again.

Constellation freckles are a great way to have a secret tattoo, something with a special meaning to you that only you know about.

We want to thank Holly especially for travelling through to see us this week to get some amazing freckles from Fiona. We also got a chance to see some healed freckles come back for some extra ones! This gives you a good chance to see the comparison between fresh and healed freckles.


Ross perfectly showed off how well his tattoos last with one of his regular customers coming back for some more work on their legs, you can see some healed and fresh work on the same client below!
