Walk-In Day

Since we are primarily by appointment, we used to make it a point to include walk-in days on the last Saturday of the month. Over the last 2-3 years these days have fizzled out but our desire to fit in small tattoos as not. We welcome tattoos of any size and look forward to creating something rad for you!

"It is our goal to shine a light on the history, culture, and practitioners of the Canadian tattoo craft. Often overshadowed by our American cohorts, we wish to expose the influence Canadian artists have had on the world stage as well as our own emerging identity as a group. Through in depth interviews and anecdotal accounts of the past and present we hope to reveal a truly Canadian cultural identity and establish a record of our place on the world stage while also sharing a glimpse of where we are headed in the future."
