Work in Progress

Here is a small cross section of some tattoos that I've been working on lately.  Things have been really busy at the shop, and I've had the chance to work on a lot of cool projects!  I'll do my best to post more over the coming weeks!

Northern Ink Exposure 2011

Been super busy since getting back from Toronto, so I'm finally getting around to my blog!  I had a lot of fun at the Northern Ink Exposure 2011 convention in Toronto!  It was the first convention that I was able to tattoo at.  I met a lot of great people, made some new friends, and got to catch up with Pat & Graeme Burke and Craig Fenrick who I had the pleasure to meet at the Ink Alley show in Saskatoon back in April!  I had the opportunity to participate in the Death Art show as well, and got to see some artwork from some of my favourite artists.  It was an honor to have my artwork up there with all the folks that I look up to!  A big thank you to Damian McGrath, and all of the supporting crew of NIX.  Here are some pics from the show!
