Our Story

Anthony Szura founded Black Sapphire Tattoo in 2019. After working for many tattoo shops and developing his artistic skills throughout the years, Anthony had a vision to open his own shop where his team of artists could freely express themselves. He wanted to create a safe and welcoming space where customers and artists alike could feel like family and enjoy their time in the shop together. With hard work and dedication, Anthony brought his vision to life. Black Sapphire Tattoo is now a leading tattoo shop in Madison that welcomes everyone to get high quality tattoos from a team of talented artists with over 30 years of combined experience.

As a leader, it is important to Anthony that his employees feel comfortable and are given the opportunity to create their best work. He does this by providing them with a positive workplace environment that encourages creativity. Tattooing is a unique profession because it allows both the artist and client to collaborate on a creative vision. We want both parties to feel like family when they’re in Black Sapphire Tattoo and create incredible work together.

Here at Black Sapphire, we are skilled in various styles of tattoos, from geometric and colorful to simple black and white options. Our tattoo artists work with you to create customs designs that reflect your personality and style. We will happily collaborate with you to accurately bring your vision to life!

In addition to tattoos, we perform all kinds of piercings and offer titanium jewelry. Our team prides itself on having the highest standards of cleanliness and sterilization in the studio to ensure you have a safe experience. We specialize in all varieties of piercings, such as ear and tongue, rooks and navels, and our most recent trend, dermal push stems.

No matter what kind of tattoo or piercing you're looking for, we'll make sure you get the best service around. We are a passionate and talented team that takes pride in our work, so stop by and see us today, walk-ins are welcome! For more information about our services, give us a call at (608) 230-5323).

I just got my septum pierced by Justice for my birthday and it was amazing. She’s so sweet and reassuring. I heavily suggest her!!! I will definitely be coming back in the future and I hope to see her again!

On 11/24/2023 Samantha A. had this to say:
Justice did an amazing job with my walk in piecing, I felt so comfortable in their care. The atmosphere they created was safe and welcoming, enough to be able to relight up their work. #humble thankful that I was sent home with smaller bars due to living out of the state. I recommend anyone looking for quality care and consideration to Justice's steady hands and wisely advice.

Got two tattoos done by Kay and they both are amazing!! By far the best tattoo experience I’ve had; she made me feel so comfortable and the end product is exactly what I envisioned but also exceeded my expectations. Will definitely be going to her from now on for all my tattoos!

Hey homies! I've been with Black Sapphire since Sept. of 2023. It's always been my favorite shop to come too and now I get to pursue my passion with them! I have an eternal love for body modification and getting to expand my knowledge and experience with it! I love tackling new challenges and getting to be creative and pushing myself with unique piercing placements and jewelry. I have a wide variety of work I can and am willing to learn to do! I also am experienced with piercing children's ears and I love making their first piercing experience into something fun and memorable. In my day to day I love creating art, watching anime and going to concerts! I'm looking forward to meeting and bedazzling you all!

Hi my name is Kay! I started at Black Sapphire in 2023. As a newer tattoo artist I am still finding my style and am always open to a challenge, however I do mainly enjoy bugs and nature themed tattoos. I’d be happy to answer any questions through my instagram @myers.tattoos or feel free to reach out to the shop.

Hello I am Dalany! I've been working at Black Sapphire Tattoo since July 2023. I'm really enjoying learning how to draw all types of styles and tattooing them as well! My favorite tattoos to do are anything with fun colors! I love doing floral work as well. I'm open to new clients and their awesome ideas! Can't wait to see you in my chair!

Hey everyone! I'm Karly and I've been tattooing at Black Sapphire since we opened up in 2019. Since I've been here I've met so many amazing clients and have gotten to do so many cool tattoos that it's hard to pick my favorite! I try to keep my style pretty versatile because it challenges me and ensures that I can accommodate anyone who walks through the door! No idea is a bad idea! Check out my work in our photo gallery!
