Great tattoo studio. Kevin Black did an awesome job with my tattoo. This was my first tattoo and he explained everything very well, and his ideas helped a lot. He even sent me a text checking on the tattoo. This just shows what kind of artist he is. It meant a lot to me. I will recommend Man O War Tattoo to anyone looking for a tattoo studio.

Man those guys are incredible!!! Shop is clean and beautiful. Covered in wonderful art and gorgeous reclaimed ship timber. I love the vintage barber style chairs. The tattoo I got there was very important to me and is absolutely one of my favorites. They made me feel right at home. This place is a class act! Well worth my 10 hour drive from NC!

Kevin gave me an amazingly beautiful tattoo today to honor my son who was just diagnosed with autism. He is so talented, kind, and just a really awesome person! I will never go to anyone else.

Kevin was awesome! He sketched exactly what I described only better. He covered an old tattoo and you could never tell it was there. Extremely clean shop and friendly guys!

Established 2012 MAN O WAR TATTOO
My name is Kevin Black, Man-O-War Tattoo is my studio located in beautiful downtown Fairhope, Alabama. My passion is making permanent images on skin that are durable, powerful and unique to their owners.

I tend to focus on larger, more complex pieces but I am interested in working on most projects that allow me some creative latitude. Anything with skulls, scales, feathers, tentacles, fur or big pointy teeth gets special attention. I also enjoy doing pinups, nautical stuff, portraits, lettering, some forms of tribal and sacred geometry. .
