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). We look forward to working with you!

On 8/9/2023 Haily Smith had this to say:
I was piecred by Sam and it was so great! She did my septum and walked me through the process and it was quick and informative. After my healing process I wore the wrong gauge jewelry at no fault to her and accidentally shrunk my piercing and she stretched it for me back to a 14. She's constantly having sales and she's super friendly and kind. She's very comfortable to be around.

Sam pierced my ears in a sailor moon outfit and talked me through the whole thing. She's not just my favorite piercer, she's one of my favorite humans!

I've been with Black Sapphire since 2021. I enjoy the technical challenge of working with various body types and creative piercing placements. I strive to exceed safety standards and continue my education within the industry to better serve my clients. I provide a wide variety of services from ears, to nose, to surface anchors, to genitalia piercings, and many more. I also provide lobe piercings for children; as a mother, I’m patient and good with children. Outside of the shop I am a mother, a LGBTQA+ activist, a cosplayer, and a true crime junkie! I look forward to working with all of you and am always available to answer questions on the shop Facebook page or on my personal Instagram @samanthaannwest. Check out my work there or in our photo gallery!

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!
