  1. Haha you are right! I am in Edmonton. I definitely know of a bunch of tattoo artists in the province I admire a lot.
  2. thanks, but i understand how they work. was more curious on people's thoughts on specials. overall seems to be a pretty positive outlook?
  3. What are people's thoughts on specials? Like not just straight up discounting, but for example there's a shop in my town that did $13 tattoos on friday the 13th if you picked one of their small '13' inspired tattoos from a flash sheet. I've also seen a lot of tattoo artists draw up something and offer, say on instagram, a cheaper deal on the tattoo if anyone wants it because they really want to tattoo it.
  4. As an artist/illustrator, I've had people ask me if they can get my work tattooed on them, and I usually say it's okay. I have had people not ask me though, and i've somehow stumbled upon a photo of a tattoo of my original work without my consent. The way I look at it, is a tattoo artist should be okay with tattooing someone else's work so long as the client has the permission from the original artist.

  6. My family's first dog was a german shepherd and she passed when I was 11. She was one of my best friends growing up and I've loved dogs ever since. Right now my family has a bichon frise.

  7. I am in Alberta. This is the only tattoo I currently have.
  8. Hey there! My name is Erin. I am an artist & illustrator from Canada. I just began my tattoo collection but that is not why I am here. I am here to learn more about the art and history of tattooing and tattoo culture, hopefully learn about some new great artists. I am also very interested in apprenticing as a tattoo artist but I am still working on my drawing skills and building a portfolio appropriate to present to a shop. (I am not here to learn how to tattoo. Just here to observe other artists and drawing techniques to develop my own work). I don't have any specific questions but I a
