Shop recommendation for Ottawa, Canada area

Recommended Posts

So my sister is in Ottawa for a few weeks for work and is looking to get a tattoo while she's there (she lives in Vancouver). She asked me if I knew of any good places - which I don't off the top of my head. She's willing to drive as far as Montreal if need be; so I've already recommended MTL Tattoo.

Does anyone have any other recommendations for Ottawa itself, or reasonably close? @Graeme or @Pugilist, anywhere else I should say in Montreal?

Thanks!

Joel Conroy at Barnstormer in Ottawa does nice work, but I don't really know of any other shops in Ottawa aside from that.

Eilo and both of the Nicks at MTL Tattoo do really nice tattoos, but I'm not crazy about the rest of the work coming out of that shop. I'd recommend Tattoomania. Everybody there puts on really good tattoos, between the different artists at the shop they can do pretty much any style, and it's just a really nice, friendly, warm shop. PSC Tattoo is a great shop...Dave Cummings books out really far in advance but I think it's possible to get tattooed by Will or Arno on fairly short notice and they're both great. Imago is another good shop. I've seen a few tattoos that Nat who works there has done and they're pretty amazing. Hope that helps a bit.

Hi, I'm no use on the Ottawa front either, but if your sister is into the classic old school or just black tattoos, Christian Lanouette is killing it these days. He'll be the guy I go to for my next tattoo in town. His work healed really solid on my girlfriend.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
