Currently in her sixth year of tattooing, Paula Castle has been lucky enough to travel extensively and tattoo alongside some of the best artists around.
While working in other studios Paula realised that for most people being tattooed can be a daunting experience. She struggles with anxiety herself and understands how difficult getting tattooed can be, not to mention wanting to have more personal areas of the body tattooed, and feeling comfortable enough to be relaxed and exposed whilst making the ultimate change to your skin. That’s why she created Black Sheep.
Lots of Tattoo Studios boast being “vegan friendly” and that’s great. However most of these are simply saying so because they use vegan ink. Well, that’s just not enough. Black Sheep is a fully vegan and eco conscious studio. All products are vegan, we use plant based single use barriers for each tattoo set up. We strive to reduce waste and recycle everything possible. The studio itself is fitted using repurposed furniture and wood, LED energy saving lighting, eco-paint and lots of lovely vintage pieces. I am also vegan myself. Supporting vegan small businesses goes further than apparel and food.
