Your Canvas ...
Our Art

We believe that a tattoo is an expression of the fact that you've lived. Like scars and bruises, tattoos take your blank, living canvas and tell a story. Some of those stories are dark, and some are light. Some stories are vivid and filled with vibrant colors ... and others, more obscure in infinite shades of gray.

Emerson said it best when he said, "Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art."

​Let us create something beautiful for you to love.

Welcome

For us, Zodiac Black is like the maestro behind the magic. It's the curator of creativity and the home of some absolutely amazing artistry. We are a collection of artisans who have honed our craft over decades. But we are more than artists and philosophers and fanatics and friends. Zodiac Black is a concept - and for us there's no such thing as too much talent.

What We Do

Zodiac Black's is the brainchild of Britta Christiansen and Alex Sokolov. It was born in the idea that tattoo is so much more than just an accessory.

We specialize in creating custom works of art for your living canvas. Reach out to us today to schedule your consultation.

What are you waiting for?

Our process is simple. Everything begins with an Application For An Appointment. On that application, you will provide your full name and contact information. You will also provide some general details regarding the custom art you would like created. Our team will then review your application and determine which path your journey will take you through with our Studio.

Path 1: Limited Electronic Consultation Leading To A Tattoo Appointment.
Prior to crafting your custom art, sometimes our artisans may only need to collect a limited amount of information from you in addition to the information that you provided on your application. In such cases, you may be able to simply correspond with our team electronically to supply this needed information and then our team will schedule your tattoo appointment.

Path 2: Formal Consultation Leading To A Tattoo Appointment.
Whether this would be your fiftieth tattoo or it's your first time getting some ink, some situations may require a formal consultation with one of our artisans. During your consultation, we'll more thoroughly discuss what you are looking to have created, along with where on your body you'd like it placed. We'll also review logistics like approximately how long it will take to craft your work of art and how much it's likely to cost.

Whether your journey takes you on Path 1 or Path 2, our goal is to ensure that by the time you're actually sitting in one of our tattoo chairs, all of your questions have been answered and you know exactly what to expect.
