About us

We started Slate to help the growing number of people interested in tattoos get access to high quality artists.

When making an important decision like getting a tattoo, you want all the information you can get.

Better yet, you want an experienced friend who can teach you the basics, listen to your needs, and help you find the right artist. Nice to meet you, new friend!

We also recognize that tattoo artists are independent business owners who want to focus on their art, not being a business. Our goal is to help artists do more tattoos they love by bringing them more customers who understand the creative process and choose artists based on portfolios.


Our mission

“Empower artistic expression by curating high-quality connections between top tattoo artists and the people who wear their art.”
