Point Pleasant tattoo shop BlxckRose Ink shows TikTok, Instagram fame isn't just skin deep

POINT PLEASANT – Growing up in Holmdel, Sydney “Syd” Smith was a natural artist with a keen ability to draw.

And she successfully channeled that skill into her 2020 launch of BlxckRose Ink, a tattoo shop in Point Pleasant that specializes in fine-line work, a unique format that Smith is helping to bring to the forefront of the tattoo industry — though not without its share of debate.

“I’ve been into art my whole life and I come from a very creative family,” said Smith, 25, a Freehold resident whose mother and sister were skilled at drawing. “I always loved to draw and doodle, and a cousin of mine is a tattoo artist as well.”
