My name is Tyler Ciarlanti, I am a professional tattoo artist working out of Austin, Texas where I have my own private studio, Black Saint Studios. I do black and grey tattoos that can be best described as abstract dark realism/surrealism. I give my clients with the opportunity to express their inner selves through visual art adorning the body. I split my time between Austin, my hometown of San Diego, and New York City, and can travel to you or with you for larger pieces.
I find the beauty and strength within and bring it to light for the world to see. I like to create pieces based off of stories, intuition, experiences and emotions. Often times with no visual reference given at all. When given the freedom to create openly and freely I’ve found that some of the absolute best art is made this way. These are the pieces and people I enjoy working with the most, and have felt most connection with in recent years.
I’ve found that tattooing is a sacred energy exchange for those involved on both sides, and through the magic of this craft we can often change the course of people’s lives, leaving a positive impact when given the opportunity. I provide a way for the individual to open up to their true selves and live life a little more authentically. A way to step into your own power as a human if you will. Bring me your dreams, your experiences, your nightmares, lets work together to make your own reality.
My studio serves as a sanctuary for all walks of life. A space to create and collaborate with artists from all different mediums. We work with everyone from tattooers and painters, to private chefs and tarot readers. We host a wide array of events such as art shows for charity benefits, private dinner parties, and seminars from various artists. I created this space to bring people together and show the world that no matter how different we look on the outside, at a fundamental level we are all going through struggles and we can all relate to one another if we take the opportunity to do so. My goal is that through the work performed, and energy exchanged here people are left with a sense of self empowerment and an elevated spirit.
