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 with none of the distractions of a traditional tattoo shop.

Artist and owner Brandon Schultheis works by appointment only and 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 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 books several months in advance and her books are usually closed, so please email her directly for information on how to potentially schedule an appointment in the future or to get on her waiting list: emilypaularts@gmail.com

Marvin Silva is the newest member of the team and is an incredibly versatile artist and tattooer. Marvin can handle a variety of tattoo styles, so please check out his work and send him an email for scheduling inquires!


Email is the only method of contact, so please fill out the form on the Contact page for any inquiries you might have. Thank you!
