A few words about our studio and artists
First and foremost we would like to welcome you to Black Pearl Tattoo Studio & Gallery!
If You Are looking at Our site then you must be thinking of getting a tattoo. So the question is…..Why should you get tattooed by us?
Well first off, Black Pearl Tattoo Studio & Gallery has not been on the Cape the longest, but we are Cape Cods first true Custom tattoo studio, not just a studio claiming to be custom because it sounds good in a commercial or looks good in stickers on our windows. So what does this mean to you?
We at Black Pearl work along side of you, with your input and ideas to create a custom designed tattoo tailored for you and just for you, not fifty other people. You don't pick your design off the wall! We are a studio of artists owned by artists that have been in the industry for many years and have mastered our skills to offer you only the best.
We are not a fly by night or assembly line cookie cutter tattoo studio like other studios.
At Black Pearl the most important thing to us isnt that you get tattooed, but that you receive a tattoo that is exactly what you wanted and that meets or exceeds your expectations while having the most memorable and enjoyable experience available.
Our clients know when they come to us they are receiving nothing less than the best, which is clean, custom tattoos by our experienced, professional, award winning artists, using nothing but the finest of techniques, equipment, and pigments available, all in a clean, family, friendly, sterile environment that they feel comfortable bringing their loved ones to.
Our staff of award winning artists are well rounded and very versatile in multiple different styles and are not limited or confined to only being able to produce just one type of tattooing style. Our artists have dedicated their time and careers to mastering their skills to bring
you only the best. Which means You are gauranteed a professional, well executed beautiful piece of art that you will be proud of for a lifetime.
Because our artists are not confined or limited to producing one style we are able to offer our customers black and grey, color bomb, new school, traditional, watercolor, realism, and portraits that actually look like the photos you bring in. Because we all know how heartbreaking it is to have a terrible portrait tattoo done of the one you love that looks nothing like them, leaving the only choices of having to look
at it the rest of your life, laser removal, or a cover up.
At Black Pearl, Whether its your first tattoo or your tenth, we treat all of our clients the same, as Ohana!, and with the utmost professionalism and respect. Which is expected from a studio of this caliber.
All of our supplies are one time use and disposable, our sterilization process also exceeds hospital and state standards and

A few commonly asked questions and answers that hopefully help you understand more about tattooing and your safety.
Q: Does it hurt to get a tattoo?
A: There is some discomfort in getting a tattoo, but nothing too bad. Most people describe the feeling as a bad sunburn or a scratching feeling. But the beauty and pride associated with your new tattoo outweighs the temporary discomfort.
Q: How much does it cost to get a tattoo?
A: The price of a tattoo varies on the size and the complexity of the design. You also get what you pay for. Yes there are many people out there that will tattoo you cheap, but you will be looking for a real artist to cover it up. Look for quality, and be willing to pay for it.
Q: Is it expensive to get a tattoo from your studio?
A: Though we are not the cheapest to get tattooed by, we are more than reasonable.We are professional award winning artists, not your local kitchen scratcher or prison artist. If you can't pay for quality, don't bother. It is a piece of art you will wear for life. This is not a bargain bin or a cookie cutter studio.
Q: How old do I have to be to get tattooed at your studio?
A: In the state of Massachusetts You must be 18, no exceptions, and no it doesn't matter if your parents sign consent.
Q: Is it safe to get a Tattoo?
A: Yes, If you go to a reputable professional tattoo shop where the proper tattoo equipment is used, getting a tattoo is very safe. We at Black Pearl use all disposable, one time use supplies in a clean sterile environment. Our artists will be glad to set your mind at rest by showing you the unopened package of needles they will be using before the tattooing begins. Also please always feel free to ask us any questions.
Q: Is it safe to get tattooed out of the house?
A: Absolutely not!!! It is very unsafe and unhealthy for you to get tattooed out of the house. Also it is against the law!People that are tattooing out of the house are not professionals, that is why they're not in a studio. A house is not a sterile environment, no matter how hard they try to convince you that it is or that its clean . Chances are they do not have a autoclave so nothing is sterilized. There is also the possibility that they reuse supplies. Either way you are putting yourself at great risk of contracting Hepatitis, HIV, Aids, among many other bloodborne illnesses , diseases or infections. So please do yourself and your family a favor and don't put yourself in harms way to save a few bucks. Think about it.... people will spend over a $120 on a pair of shoes they throw away in a few months, this is a lifetime piece of art on your body!
Q: Can I bring in My own design?
A: Yes you can. We are a custom tattoo studio and can also design you a unique original tattoo tailored just for you based on how you envision your tattoo looking.
Q: I have a bad tattoo, do you do cover ups or do I need to get laser removal?
A: Yes. Unlike other studios telling you that you need laser tattoo removal because they don't have the experience or capability of doing a cover up, our artists constantly help people out with cover ups of their bad tattooss.
Q: Do you accept walk-ins?
A: Yes walk-ins are welcome, but on a first come first serve basis. If there is a specific time you are looking to get tattooed on then we recommend setting up a appointment.
