Sponsored Artist of the Month – Clara Sinclair

Ornamental tattoos are always a sight to behold when you come across them on Instagram, so it comes as no surprise that Clara Sinclair’s work is so an alluring to viewers and art collectors.

Based in London, UK, Clara Sinclair is best known for her stunning ornamental tattoos that feature hearts, jewels and filigrees. Basically, anything fancy that you could have inked on your body!

Clara trained as an oil painter and prosthetic designer before discovering her love for tattooing. She started as a resident artist at 13 Diamonds studio in London back in 2012, along with working at Never Say Die Tattoo in Croydon around the same time.

More recently, Clara Sinclair could be found at Jolie Rouge tattoo studio in her home town of London and had been there since early 2015, working alongside other Killer Ink sponsored artists like Keely Rutherford, Matt Difa, Antonio Gabriele, and Lord Montana-Blue.

Clara has since changed studios and will now be working at Mo Coppoletta’s tattoo shop, The Family Business.

After initially wanting to focus on bolder pieces, a trip to Prague resulted in Clara’s love of filigree and ornamental styles, which she now focuses on in her tattoos.

For any lovers of Star Wars out there, Clara has produced numerous tattoos based on the franchise with her signature style. Make sure to check out her filigree-Stormtrooper mash-ups!

To take a look at what Clara Sinclair is creating with Killer Ink Tattoo supplies, head on over to her Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages!

Thomas Carli-Jarlier – Noire Ink

We jetted over to Clermont-Ferrand, France to catch up with our sponsored artist Thomas Carli-Jarlier at his Noire Ink studio.

The French artist wowed us again with his incredible black and grey portrait of the late great Jimi Hendrix!

Check out the video!

Over the years, Thomas Carli-Jarlier has forged a reputation for producing some of the best realistic black and grey portrait tattoos that you’ll ever see!

It should come as no surprise then that Thomas is a multi-award-winning tattooist, picking up awards like ‘Best of Show’ and ‘Best of Sunday’ at this year’s Corsair Tattoo Ink convention in France.

Working out of Noire Ink tattoo studio alongside his wife Vasilisa Carli-Jarlier, Thomas is also a member of the Overkame tattoo collective. This tattoo collective comprises other Killer Ink sponsored artists Angelique Grimm, Michael Taguet, Eliot Kohek, and Mathieu Varga.

You can find more of Thomas Carli-Jarlier’s work on his Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages!

Killer Ink Tattoo at London Tattoo Convention 2017

The London Tattoo Convention came back with a bang this year and we were there to film our latest video!

It features incredible tattoo artists, the fiery ladies from Pyrohex and the Fuel Girls, and the launch of the eagerly-anticipated Spektra Xion!

You definitely don’t want to miss this one!

The 2017 International London Tattoo Convention was another awesome affair that featured hundreds of the world’s best tattoo artists working on some incredible works of art.

Our sponsored artist Debora Cherrys picked up ‘3rd Best of Friday and Saturday’ for her neo-traditional tattoo, while Ryan ‘The Scientist’ Smith won ‘3rd Best of Show’ for a collaboration piece with Jay Freestyle and Jenna Kerr.

Joining us at our stand this year were US tattooist Sarah Miller and Gaston Siciliano from FK Irons to help us showcase the brand new Spektra Xion to artists, giving them a run-down on its features and how it performs.

We’ll see you again soon London!


Stigma-Rotary® is one of the world leaders in the manufacturing of high-quality rotaries and it’s set to raise the bar further with the introduction of some new tattoo machines.

But first, let’s take a step back and look at its inception. The first ever adjustable rotary machine from Stigma-Rotary® was invented, designed and built back in 2005 by rotary pioneer and tattoo artist Artemis Rosakis.

Even today, Artemis remains the head developer and father of every single Stigma® tattoo machine that is manufactured.

And what a job Artemis has done, with each Stigma-Rotary® machine offering maximum performance and achieving optimal results in lining, colour packing, shading, blending, and layering.

That’s not all though, with Stigma-Rotary® having released its Advanced Needle Cartridges last year, which were designed with safety in mind and featuring an external sealing cap to prevent any leak through to the grip and machine.

The innovative design doesn’t stop there though: when connected to a Stigma® grip, the cartridges form a dual seal, meaning that they seal completely with the grip at the connecting spot.

After releasing new machines in the form of the Neuro, Soldier and Ray last year, Stigma-Rotary® is set to kick it up another notch with the introduction of the new Hyper V4 (now available to pre-order), along with the Stylist and Spear pen-shaped machines.

The Stigma-Rotary® Hyper V4 is a smooth running and versatile hybrid tattoo machine, while the Stylist and Spear are advanced pen-shaped rotaries that are fully-adjustable on the fly.

The three machines will accept all brands of cartridges, including Stigma®’s advanced cartridges and conventional cartridges - like our own brand of Stellar Cartridges.

That’s not all from Stigma®, however, with the company keeping a few more aces up its sleeve, ready to be revealed over the coming months.

So make sure to keep an eye out on our site and social media pages to find out more!

Sponsored Artist of the Month – Mumia

Halloween may be over, but we’re going to remain in the world of the dark arts with a look at black and grey surrealism tattooist Mumia.

Mumia was born in Portugal but has forged his career in Denmark, currently working at Zoi Tattoo in the capital city of Copenhagen.

Unlike numerous artists these days, Mumia didn’t have a formal tattoo apprenticeship, stating that because the opportunity never came, he decided to be self-taught and learn the ropes through trial and error.

After three years of working in his home country of Portugal, Mumia was offered a guest spot at a studio in Esbjerg, Denmark, allowing him to work on improving his custom black and grey tattoos every day.

Fast forward another two years and he decided to settle down in Copenhagen, continuing to impress clients with his incredible dark surrealism style at Zoi Tattoo studio.

To create his eye-catching black and grey pieces, Mumia uses various supplies from Killer Ink Tattoo, including Silverback Ink, INK-EEZE and, most recently, the new Spektra Xion machine from FK Irons.

Check out more of Mumia’s tattoos on his Facebook and Instagram pages.

Killer Ink & Grindhouse Tattoo Productions Present... A Horrific Halloween

We teamed up with the guys from Grindhouse Tattoo Productions to bring you a truly horrific video this Halloween!

Alex Wright and Kyle ‘Egg’ Williams put us in the Halloween mood with their tattoos of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Pennywise from this year’s blockbuster IT.

You definitely don’t want to miss this one! Or you’ll float too…

Grindhouse Tattoo Productions is a studio based in Macclesfield, UK and the home of two of our multi-award-winning artists, Alex Wright and Kyle ‘Egg’ Williams.

Alex and Kyle both specialise in horror and photo realism tattoos, so we thought that they would be perfect for our Halloween video!

If you’re a fan of cult horror films, Alex has made a name for himself tattooing VHS cover art on his clients, while Kyle’s black and grey work has wowed at conventions across Europe.

Make sure to check out the Grindhouse guys over on the studio’s Facebook and Instagram pages!

No Tricks, Just Treats – Halloween Competition, Flash Sale + More

Halloween may be mostly about trick or treating these days, but we thought we’d skip the tricks and head straight to the treats…

So put off trying to find that last minute costume and bottle of fake blood and just check out our killer competition, flash sale and other treats below!

Works of Horror Competition

As we do each year, we are running our annual Works of Horror Competition from October 25th until midnight on Halloween (October 31st).

To enter, all you have to do is like Killer Ink Tattoo on Facebook, find our competition post, comment under it with a picture of your best horror tattoos and then like and share the competition post!

No trick, it’s that simple!

If you enter, you’ll be in with the chance of winning a €350 voucher to spend on anything on our website.

Let’s be honest, if Pennywise offered this prize, you’d be down in that sewer quicker than you could say “You’ll float too…”.

Halloween Flash Sale

The competition isn’t the only thing preoccupying us, however, as we have heard rumours of Pennywise the Dancing Clown stalking Killer Ink HQ, so we’re going to track him down on Halloween.

The creepy clown has left his past behind in Derry and has now decided to start slashing prices on tattoo supplies! Eat your heart out, Stephen King…

If we managed to catch Pennywise, we’ll upload the footage to our Instagram Stories and see what discounts he’s managed to get his grubby hands on!

So make sure to follow @killerinktattoo on Instagram or we’ll send you to see the Deadlights…

Sweet Treats in Every Order

After all the talk of killer clowns, we think you could do with something lighter and a little sweeter

As a thank you to all of the ghosts and ghouls who will be ordering over the Halloween period, we will be throwing in some spooky sweets into every order!

Like we said: no tricks, only treats!

But make sure to get your orders in before we find the sweet stash!


KWADRON is one of the forefront names when it comes to the manufacture of high-quality tattoo needles, but why did they become so popular with tattoo artists?

To put it simply, tattoo needles from KWADRON offer virtually unmatched quality and hardness of the steel, along with featuring precision soldering. This means that KWADRON needles don’t lose their sharpness easily and remain in perfect condition for much longer than most other needles on the market.

Thanks to the quality and reliability of KWADRON tattoo needles, many renowned artists today are using the products to produce incredible pieces of body art.

If you’re looking to try some of KWADRON’s high-quality tattoo needles, Killer Ink Tattoo stocks various configurations, including different types of liners, shaders, magnums, and flats.

Although KWADRON is best known for its tattoo needles, the Polish manufacturer has also expanded into producing power supplies and tattoo machines.

Under the moniker ‘Nemesis’, KWADRON has manufactured numerous power supplies and foot switches, each lightweight, compact and portable.

More recently, KWADRON has launched two new tattoo machines under its Equaliser banner, the Proton and the Mikron.

The Equaliser Proton is a pen-shaped rotary machine that is compatible with all needle cartridge types. It’s quiet, reliable and offers a complete lack of vibration.

The ergonomic Equaliser Mikron is the company’s latest rotary machine, offering a very small and light product that is comfortable to work with. This machine can be used with all types of cartridge tubes.

With KWADRON tattoo needles gaining a fantastic reputation for quality, you can be sure that the brand’s other products are just as good!
