Our Story

THE NAME

Black Hatchet Tattoo Co. was originally named Painted Soul Tattoos. Painted Soul Tattoos was created by Megan Jean Morris with her apprentice Ricky Borchert in May 2011. In June 2017, Megan decided it was time to move her career out west and sold the shop to Ricky and his wife Katrina. Together, they worked hard to make Painted Soul better than ever. Eventually, coming to the realization that the name Painted Soul Tattoos was another person’s vision and it was time to re-brand the shop into something of their own. After months of brain storming, design, and stress, Painted Soul Tattoos became Black Hatchet Tattoo Co. in November 2018. The name Black Hatchet Tattoo Co. was derived from Ricky’s social media name (HatchetRicky) which plays tribute to Ricky’s love of skateboarding, horror & art. The new name was just a stepping stone as a complete shop renovation and expansion followed in early 2019.

THE ART

Many of our artists started their art career as a child, then pursued art in school and now hold bachelor degrees. Others, have traveled the country, learning from the nation’s top artists. We keep our standards extremely high, making sure our clients leave our shop with a tattoo that is not only beautiful and unique but executed properly so it will hold its beauty for a life time.

THE PHILOSOPHY

Our shop was built on a love for art, superb quality and the drive to always improve. At Black Hatchet, we expect our artists to be improving on a daily basis. We have an open floor plan which might seem a little contradictory to the modern standards of private tattooing rooms for each artist to accommodate their clients privacy. We still value our client’s privacy, however, the best way for constant improvement is for our artists to work with each other. The open floor plan allows the artists to see what other artists are doing, it allows them to learn new techniques and most importantly it opens the door for communication for opinions and advice on every tattoo. This is so important for constant growth and for the quality of tattoo that we strive to provide. We will work with every client to accommodate any privacy concerns using privacy partitions!

At Black Hatchet Tattoo Co. we promise that you will receive a tattoo that will far succeed your expectations!
