Welcome to Blackgate Tattoo Collective
Blackgate Tattoo Collective is a group of tattoo professionals with almost 30 years of experience between them. Looking to create a unique experience for their clients that washes away any negative stigma that might have once been associated with the tattoo community.
Blackgate is here to bring a clean, sterile and professional place to get your new artwork as well as build and become a pillar of the Strathroy community.
Do to provincial shut downs of non-essential businesses, Blackgate along with all other tattoo studios are closed until further notice. All affected appointments will be contacted to reschedule by your artist as soon as information is available about when we may reopen. Until then, however, you can purchase digital gift cards thanks to FanSavesHelps and the Strathroy BIA!
Currently Blackgate Tattoo Collective does not have a guest artist in, but we do have space for one! If you are interested in tattooing at our shop send us an email or contact us on any of our social media pages!
Should you join our team temporarily, this is where your small bio would go followed by a portfolio of your excellent work! We will also change social links in this section to route clients to your pages.
If you wish to guest spot at Blackgate, contact with a portfolio or a link to your social pages.
Mike is a black and grey realism artist who's main focus is the macabre. Skulls, horror, or anything spooky is where Mike has landed after 7 years in the industry. Animal portraits and other forms of realism also make their way into his portfolio.
Adapting to contemporary designs, Kyle's linework is sharp and crisp, making for stunning geometric patterns, large mandalas and flowing flowers. When hes not creating dazzling designs, he works largely with a Japanese influence.
A staple in tattooing, Jay has been working for more than 20 years in the industry and has done and seen it all. While comfortable with most styles and willing to take on complex cover-ups and tattoo fixes Jay flourishes in floral. Colorful and vibrant flowers and roses are abundant in his portfolio.
Mark is an experienced apprentice, ready to find his spot in the tattooing world and is eager to take on almost anything you can throw at him. Geometrical designs, new and old school, and even some artistic realism are all on the horizon for Mark as he finds his niche.
