My name is Sean Kyle Sandusky.  


I believe that every tattoo should be an accurate reflection of the collectors style and persona. The art represented in such a piece should display that same discovery of value and authenticity.  I enjoy taking the time to do the appropriate research, evaluate design options, body placement, and over all flow of the piece.  Often I redraw my pieces several times in order to fine tune details and evolve the design to meet clients requests.

"Amazing experience with Sean today, I would recommend him to anyone! Studio is very clean and sterile. Hours are perfect for working people. Price is reasonable too. My son's first tattoo and he loves it. Keep up the good work!"

"Searched pretty hard to find a shop that I vibed with enough to trust to do a memorial piece for my father, I then found Sandusky at Dark Wood's shop, we've had 2 sessions (its a pretty big piece) and I will tell you I am VERY VERY pleased with the realism he did in my tattoo, his focus, & his energy. This was a very important piece and he has made me feel more than assured I was in great hands, and he has also proven himself too. I have never been happier with a piece. He blew all expectations out of the water that I had in my mind for what this piece was going to look like, he brought it to life. The shop is upbeat, relaxing, you feel at home, they are always smiling. Great place!!!!!!! 5 star++++++++"
