About Us

Black Sheep Tattoo is the brainchild of artist Sampson Hurley. Sampson has been tattooing for five years. He worked his way up from apprentice, artist, and now owner. Black Sheep Tattoo provides an atmosphere that is clean and professional.  Located downtown Bismarck, Black Sheep Tattoo is an appointment-based tattoo studio. We provide free consultations from 10am-12pm, Tuesday-Saturday.

Schedule Consultation

To schedule a consultation, you can either call the shop or come in personally. Consultations are free, last approximately 30 minutes, and are done from 10 am – 12 pm.


This is where you will discuss your ideas with the tattoo artist of your choosing. Together you’ll go through size, style, color, and everything you would like to incorporate into the piece. From there you’ll receive a time estimate and a price quote. The final step is going through the booking process where we will schedule you for your appointment and take a deposit. When filling out a deposit contract carefully read through all of the fine wording and ask questions if you have any. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable to any other artist or person.

Tattoo Time

Today is the day. Your tattoo appointment is here. You’ve agreed to pay someone to cause you pain for a certain amount of time to get one kick-ass piece. A few things before the day begins. Make sure to bring a photo ID with you for the paperwork process. Have something good to eat, and make sure to stay hydrated. If you are running late for an appointment call ahead and tell the studio so they can make the necessary arrangements. If you no call or no show your deposit will be voided and if you had any future appointments they will be taken out of the schedule.
