Carmen & Jordan come to visit!

...and I come to the sad realization that we need a better camera for photos.

Thanks for making the stop on your journey, guys!! It was awesome to see you!! Anyone who camps, then goes hiking after getting tattooed is made of tougher stuff than I.

Next up! Check out Taryn's super cute matryoshka (aka: Betty Babuschka). Thanks Taryn!!

Edmonton Part 2- Christine

Finished up Christine's sleeve. You can never (ever) go wrong with, or have too many, roses. Thanks, Christine!

Edmonton Part 1- Jesse

Back, safe and sound in Nelson! As always, we have to extend a huge thanks to everyone who came out to get tattooed when we were in Edmonton!

First up, and freshly edited- Jesse's day of the dead backpiece (plus sleeves and chest panels). Just a bit of below-the-beltline work left to do, then he's looking to complete his entire front!

Thanks again, Jesse!

...and since Ross happened to stop by to get tattooed the other day, we got to get healed photos of his grizzly bear.

A huge thanks to Ross, who trucked all the way out from Edmonton to get this badass shark above his knee! Hope you and Cannon enjoy yourselves in Nelson as much as we do every day!!

Dimensional Swallow

He knows your intentions before you form them. Continuing to keep things a little weird here in Nelson.

Severed Samurai Head!

Our good friend Shaun came out to visit for the August long weekend! It was super awesome hanging out! And, you know, nothing like a nice relaxing rib tattoo to cap off a long day of hiking... Yowzer. Thanks for sitting tough, Shaun!

Had the unbelievably tough Emma come visit us from Edmonton this week... who sat through an ENTIRE hip-to-ankle leg sleeve outline! Thanks a bunch, Emma! Can't wait to see this piece as it progresses!

This is one of my favourite parts of the tattoo- since the log sits right on the kneecap, it looks like the squirrel friend is sitting perched atop her knee! Permanent hang-out buddy!

Fine (Gnome) Arts

Yes indeed... That is a spliff-smoking gnome doing a tail whip on a DH mountain bike. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Shawn's first commissioned piece of art in Nelson. Keep Nelson Weird and, uh, smoke 'em if you got 'em?
