is easy to do badly, difficult to do well. The personal
experience of the tattooist is of enormous importance, and
so is the collective experience of other tattooists, past
and present, from whom one learns habits and methods which
are valuable, and tricks, short cuts and failures which
must be avoided if the highest of standards are to be maintained.
Established in 2006 by
KeelHauled Mike and Krooked Ken, Black Anchor Tattoo is
the first Tattoo Parlor in Caroline County, Maryland to
offer sanitary modern electric tattooing. After tattooing
up and down the East Coast for the last 15 years, Black
Anchor was established to provide a home base to offer our
services. At Black Anchor Tattoo we are all seasoned professionals,
you will not be left to the bad misfortune of unknowingly
being tattooed by an apprentice or unskilled tattooist.
We choose to pursue our profession with intelligence and
skill, wishing not to offend anyone. We are known Worldwide
for our Coleman Style of Tattooing so please understand
if we choose not to do your design. Brilliant ideas don't
always make great Tattoos!
We are located in the center
of historic Denton, the County Seat, at 211 Market St. and
easily accessible from all over the Eastern Shore as well
as a short ride from the Bay Bridge. Walk-ins and appointments
welcome. We have 1000's of designs to look through for ideas
or you can bring in your own. The majority of our work is
custom, so if you need something designed for you we can
help you out. Please feel free to contact us with any questions
either by E-Mail
or by phone at (410)479-9316.
Black Anchor Tattoo is dedicated
to preserving the stories, spirit, images, myths & truths,
and everything else to do with American tattooing from its
beginnings in the late 19th century, up to its widespread,
present state. Our mission is to educate the public about
the history of electric tattooing in America. We also have
an ever changing display of vintage and historic tattoo
memorabilia, everything from actual equipment, letters,
From time to time we have visiting artists from all over
the country. These artists spend a limited amount of time
working in our shop. It is a chance for people in our area
to collect a tattoo from an artist they would not usually
be able to have access to. These artists are listed on our
site with a link to their online portfolio. You can also
visit our shop to see examples of their work.
