Sean king - founder / tattooer


Connect with me on Instagram


        Sean King started his apprenticeship in 2009 with the realism artist, Joshua Carlton. This time was formative in Sean’s love for photorealistic imagery on paper, canvas and, ultimately skin. In late 2011, Sean opened Black Sword Alliance in Muncie, Indiana. After several artists were rotated through, he finally landed on the crew represented there now. 

          In 2016, Sean relocated to Eugene, Oregon and opened a private studio with his mentor. The time spent there was utilized to improve his skills and understanding of, both, the art and the craft of tattooing. Sean has tattooed all over the United States and has tattooed and instructed in Europe as well.

          Sean specializes in black & grey realism, but, loves to tattoo just about any style there is. Sean can also be commissioned for drawings and paintings. Contact him and let’s get started with your next tattoo!
