The Black Labyrinth Tattoo Syndicate

We are a custom tattoo and art studio located in beautiful downtown Easthampton, Massachusetts.

The Black Labyrinth offers a comfortable, positive environment, encompassing love, creativity, and integrity through the craft of tattooing.  

Clients and artists have the opportunity to come together, not as a transaction, but as a bond that fuses vision, imagination, and compassion; to create one of kind works of art and experiences.

Every path, every journey, and every maze is going to have its own unique solution.  Getting tattooed should never be a homogenized experience, as we are all individuals, with our own unique journeys.  While as tattooers we aren't changing the world, we hope that we can provide you with a little love and light on your path.

You Are Beautiful.
