First off I want to say I really enjoy the vibe of this shop, the artists are all very professional, not intimidating. I would be what one would refer to as a tattoo novice, never had a preference on shops or artists in the past. After my experience at Black Cat, I won't be going to any other shop for future work! The place is clean, again not intimidating, and the artists are all very skilled.

I have been going to Sean Wyett at Black Cat for around 5 years now and nine tattoos later I will never go to another artist. First and foremost his art is top notch and his lines are always strong. Second, no one in the shop has either the stuck up attitude or chip on their shoulder. Always a great environment and I stop by even when I'm not getting tattooed.

Sean Wyett is one of the most professional and talented tattoo artists Boise has ever seen. I regret never being able to give him a picture of his beautiful finished project on my back, so I decided to post it on their Yelp page. My tattoo was difficult and took over 5 hours, but he was so patient and accommodating to my comfort. Thank you Sean. Next time I'm in Boise and have a hankering for a tattoo, I will call you!

I went to Sean Wyett for my first tattoo. I was referred to him and I was very impressed. I have heard many different things about what to expect for a first tattoo. He was very kind and had great bedside manner as I was extremely nervous. I am very pleased with how the tattoo came out and I am even more pleased by the experience all around. If I ever get more tattoos I won't go anywhere else but to Sean at Black Cat Tattoo!

How Much Do You Charge?

Prices vary depending on many things – size, placement, complexity, artist, etc. Our #1 concern is quality and sometimes that costs a little bit more.  A piece you are 100% happy with is priceless.

Our shop minimum is $60.00.

What Do I Need To Do On The Day Of My Tattoo?

Drink lots of water, eat well, and get plenty of rest. Wear comfortable clothing and make sure we can easily get to the area you want tattooed.

How Do I Care For My Tattoo?

We will review aftercare information with you in depth after your tattoo. Everyone is different and aftercare varies slightly depending on your needs. If you have any questions, please call or stop by.

Do You Have Ready-Made Designs?

Yes. Primarily we do custom tattoos, collaborating with you to create a piece that is unique.  If you have something in mind, email it or bring it in to show us.  We can turn any design into a tattoo, but be aware that some designs may need alteration in size or detail in order to achieve the desired effect. Some details will not show up if the tattoo is too small.


Do You Sterilize Your Equipment?

We use steam autoclave sterilization and use freshly sterilized equipment for each tattoo. We spore-test our autoclaves monthly to ensure they are working properly.


If you want a custom tattoo, it is best to set a consultation appointment.  Bring a reference or two about what you or looking for, or look through our extensive art library.  We will draw a piece for you that is one-of-a-kind and customized to fit the location on your body where the art is going.


We do not tattoo anyone under the age of 18.  We do not tattoo people under the influence of drugs or alcohol.  PERIOD.  Please bring your ID and leave your kids at home.

Payment Methods

We accept cash and debit/credit cards (sorry, no AmEx).  We do not accept checks.
