Tattooing 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.

Heldfast In Tradition

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, and photographs

*******Guest Artists********
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.
