From Concept To Skin: Live, Love, Laugh - Inked By Mario RJ Corbin

Live, Love, Laugh!

If you had told me ten years ago that I would be tattooing, let alone tattooing Mr. Percy Hart (@junkyardvillain) I’d have thought you were high! But here we are today and so it has come to pass that I had the honour of tattooing a celebrity no less. Mr. Hart’s music career has been steadily growing these past few years and with each new album he comes closer to his dreams. The latter includes but is not limited to his contributions to charity events for On Rock Community Services and the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation - Rock The Cause. In fact, his newest album is now available in store and he has asked that all proceeds from the sale be donated to a local charity here in Sherbrooke, Quebec! That’s just the kind of guy that Percy is. He’s literally all ♥️! So drop by today and pick up a copy of his album while supplies last! If you are looking for a new tattoo book a consultation today!

From Concept To Skin: With Love From Frankenstein - Inked By Mario RJ Corbin

With Love From Frankenstein

Austen came by Sunday evening to have Frankie and his bride finished! Austen provided several images designed by bwanadevilart, an artist who sells framed pop culture art on Etsy. I added the moon and roses to accentuate this tale of murderous love. Given Shakespeare’s fondness for tragic prose, I think he would approve! We are delighted with how this tattoo turned out. Whilst it was Austen’s first tattoo I am sure it won’t be his last!😉 All new tattoos come with a complimentary aftercare kit. Book a consultation today!

Farewell & Good Luck Patrick James Fawcett - Tattoo Apprentice!

You Coulda Been A Contender Patrick!

As many of you know, we are a family run business. So it was with great excitement and anticipation that my brother in law, Patrick, came to spend the summer with us. In doing so he would be offering his services as an apprentice. Having started his apprenticeship in Europe, Patrick spent just over two months apprenticing here in Canada between April 26 and June 28, 2019. Whilst he managed to produce many flashes he successfully tattooed five times. He has amazing potential and raw talent. We hope that he continues to tattoo upon his return to Europe this autumn. Below are pictures of his work during that time.

From Concept To Skin: “Mathys” - Written By Granny, Inked By Mario RJ Corbin

"Mathys" Written By Granny

I found myself being asked to add a child’s name to Eva-May’s existing family tattoo today. I reproduced her mother’s handwriting from a card that she brought in. I must confess I was delighted to help her preserve a part of her mother whilst also adding her son’s name. The two other names, heart, and stars were done by another artist. If you have a loved ones handwritten note to you laying around and wish to have it preserved why not get it tattooed? These are sweet ways of keeping them close to you forever.

Sneak Peek: With Love From Frankenstein - Inked By Mario RJ Corbin

With Love From Frankenstein

Maika’s husband, Austen, began his tattoo last night and what a tattoo it’s turning out to be. Whilst we have one session left to go, we managed to complete a good portion of this piece last night. The images themselves were originally designed by bwanadevilart, an artist who sells framed pop culture art on Etsy. Whilst Austen provided the original images I organized them in such a way that would pique Shakespeare’s fondness for tragic prose. I also added the moon and roses to accentuate this tale of murderous love. Stay tuned for the final instalment! All new tattoos come with a complimentary aftercare kit. Book a consultation today!
