Best tattoo artist in toronto 2013 and 2014 nominee, Bring on 2015

I hope all of you had a great 2014 and are ready to give me some skin this year. I had a killer year myself and got to tattoo tons of amazing clients. I threw up a small montage of some familiar face’s I got to meet and tattoo last year including Justin Bieber, Christy Mack, Drake OVO Crew Ryan and OB OBrien, Ryan Butler, Danny Fernandez, and even tattooed Phoebe Dykstra live to air on MTV.

I had a really good time getting the chance to focus on a lot of large scale tattoos and really build my portfolio. I really cant wait to get this year rolling and see what becomes.

I am no longer working with Black line. I decided it was time to do some independent work and really take some time to focus on my clients, and build my schedule suiting. You can find me at Distinktive Ink on college street. I will be here doing freelance work within this studio.

If you would like to book a consult or an appointment please feel free to contact me via the booking section call me at 647.444.7170

Thanks again for a great year, Im really looking forward to seeing some new faces in 2015.
