Black Mirror Parlor is the ultimate in eye candy; a beauteous studio where you can get inked amongst funky chandeliers, taxidermy, and fur throws. It’s owned by Sarah B. Bolen, a Canadian tattoo artist who also doubles as an interior designer. Black Mirror’s decor has been thrifted, selected from flea markets, or are Bolen’s own handmade (or fixer-upper) creations. “It was always my dream to open a studio like this, and in Berlin it was possible,” she says. “I had one [studio] in Toronto in a pretty shitty neighborhood, but super small for a ridiculous rent -- like thousands and thousands of dollars. But this is the first really awesome studio I've owned. ”
Black Mirror’s decor is reflective of Bolen’s inking style: American traditionals and designs with tendencies towards the Victorian era. The studio often hosts visiting artists, including German traditionalist Myra Brodsky who also vibes in Victorianism, Art Nouveau, and Rococo designs.
