Refreshers

We have noticed a huge increased in traffic recently and thought we should take the time to refresh everyone on who we are, both individually and as a shop.


Black Abbey is an aesthetics studio. ​

We are bringing you the very best in tattooing, cosmetic tattooing, hand poked tattooing, tattoo removal, body piercing, fine body jewellery, apparel and gallery space all under one roof, in the heart of Glasgow.

We aim to offer you a different and inclusive experience in something more than just a tattoo studio.


Keep reading to find out a little bit more about each member of the Black Abbey Clergy.


Sara

Sara loves to take on all sorts of subject matter in her tattoos, her favourite being what she calls "Enchanted Nature" - all things that grow, scuttle, squeak and lurk, all with a fairytale illustration influence. She is growing her own personal 'Vegicanicum' across many of her clients with her personified vegetables.


Have a look at her gallery below to see examples of Sara's work or click to go to Sara's Instagram Page




Ross

Ross likes to specialise in being a nuisance to rest of the shop staff and dark and intricate tattoos, inspired by all things horror and 80s memorabilia. If you're feeling brave, he regularly runs a "if you're brave enough competition' to give the winner a free tattoo, be warned that you shouldn't enter if you can't commit!

Allan AKA Wee Aldo

Allan is a self taught tattoo artist that is obsessed with the aesthetic of the perfect - imperfect.


His style is all things punk, erotic, trashy and underground and he is obsessed with woodcut engravings and old school tattoo flash.


Here to help you mark up your body for life with the statement ink you need,

tattooed with love.


See some of Allan's favourite recent work below, or head over to Alan's Instagram page.


Rob

Many of you will have met Rob if you have been in the studio already. He is our technical behind the scenes wizard and all round handy hero.

Techno-Hexe

The elusive Techno Hexe has very little in the way of online persona.

As his name suggests, his tattoos are a curious combination of biomechanics and folklore, featuring poppets, nature, and primitive motifs with a dystopian sci fi twist.


The mysterious Techno Hexe has recently come from a brief sabbatical and is glad to be back at in the studio.
