About the Studio
BlackSails Studio was founded in 2017 as a professional private tattoo studio on the south shore of Long Island. Located in Sayville, the studio is a comfortable retreat for clients and allows the artists to focus on their work in a private location without any of the distractions of a traditional tattoo shop.
Artist and owner Brandon Schultheis focuses on large-scale illustrative, new school and bio-mechanical tattoos. He currently has about a 6 month waiting list for new clients. Please take a look at his portfolio to see if your ideas would be a good fit for his preferred styles.
Joe Friedman is a well-rounded artist that specializes in colorful Neo-Traditional, Anime and Illustrative tattoos, please check out his work and email him to schedule an appointment!
Emily Ailes specializes in black and gray realism as well as mandalas, geometric and dotwork tattoos. Emily's books are usually closed due to overwhelming demand, so please visit her website for more information on how to potentially schedule an appointment in the future or to get on her waiting list: emilypaularts.com
