Indigenous Tattoos Done by Hand

 

I began the work of reviving my ancestral tattooing tradition in 2012, and since then I have had the honor of assisting in the revival of Indigenous tattooing across Turtle Island (North America). This gallery contains a selection of tattoos that document my journey into the revival of Indigenous tattooing. If you are interested in being tattooed by me please contact me using the contact page.

Tattoos Done by Machine

Working in a small town tattoo shop allows me the opportunity to work in a wide variety of genres of tattooing. However I specialize in neo-tribal, dot work, black work and ornamental tattooing.

 

As an Indigenous artist who does not come from a community that practiced formline as one of our artistic expressions, I have built a mentorship relationship with the Heiltsuk artist Dean Hunt. As a symbol of our reciprocal relationship and a way of giving back to his community I donate a percentage of each formline tattoo back his community.

 

If you are a non-indigenous tattoo artist who is tattooing Indigenous designs without such a relationship, your work is considered a continuation of the history of genocide on Indigenous peoples.
