I specialize in this timeless style, blending tradition with my artistic vision.

I travel quite a bit as well regularly to Prospector Tattoo in Golden, British Columbia and other cities scattered throughout BC from Prince George to Osoyoos.

  7. How much is a tattoo? I get asked this a lot. Typically I like to flat rate tattoos meaning I will give you one price depending on what you would like done. That can vary greatly from piece to piece depending on size and intricacy. The minimum cost of a tattoo from me is $160CAD.
