Leo The Zodiac Lion ♌️ - Inked By Mario RJ Corbin
Whilst waiting for Jesse’s Spartan tattoo to completely heal before continuing we decided to begin finishing up the lower part of his sleeve. The zodiac sign for Leo ♌️ was chosen and in the spirit of the rest of the sleeve, I put this together in a similar mosaic style as before with the Three Fates. Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, Little Ball of Fur, Purr Purr Purr! If I have to explain it... 😉 If you are looking for a new tattoo do not hesitate to contact us for a consultation today! Nota Bene: The family crest above my Lion was not done by me.

Image supplied by the client. Thanks to Dillon for coming by today to get his very first tattoo! What an epic first tattoo at that! He was a real champ and sat through this piece without so much of a grumble. Wolverine would have been proud! I’m itching to do more superhero-themed tattoos so don’t hesitate to book a consultation today!

Pacific Coast Octopus
A work in progress, I have been working on putting together a Kraken for a client but inevitably found myself lost in this lovely fella. Inspiration was taken from several sources. Far from the Kraken he was intended to be, inevitably he decided to choose to be a gentle giant. But don’t let his demeanour fool you - he can be protective when called upon. If you are in the market for a wise pacific coast octopus contact me today! Otherwise, book a consultation if you would like to discuss creating something uniquely yours.
For Sparta - Part Deux!
We began part two of Jesse’s Spartan tattoo! Inspired by the movie 300, this piece is not unlike paint by numbers. 😉 This is part 2 of possibly 4 sessions as the detail and colour work alone is taking a while. Suffice it to say I am looking forward to seeing this completed as it promises to be rather fierce. If you are looking for a new tattoo do not hesitate to contact us for a consultation today!

Flashes For Sale

Quebec (La Belle Province) has been a hotbed of controversy for as long as I can remember. Despite several advancements over the last sixty years there have, unfortunately, been as many setbacks. The most recent is Bill 21, an act of discrimination on the part of the Quebec government that will contribute to Islamaphobia amongst many issues. However, not everyone in Quebec is as ignorant as the politicians that have wasted taxpayer money to draft such a document. Nor are all Quebecers (or Quebecois) willing to keep their heads in the sand about such a travesty of justice! Many organizations and institutions have spoken out against Bill 21 including the Department of Education at Bishop's University, McGill University, Champlain Regional College and Dawson College (to name but a few). As both a contract faculty member for the aforementioned department at BU and as a tenured professor at Champlain College Lennoxville and as a small business owner, I for one support the decision to speak out against Bill 21! I hope that you will take the time to educate yourselves about the discriminatory nature of Bill 21 and agree that it has no place in the 21st Century, let alone here in Canada. If you have to vilify other cultural practices and/or religious beliefs in order to feel safe or good about your own normative practices and values then there is something terribly wrong with your culture. I am ashamed of Quebec's lack of forward-thinking and it's continuing discriminatory practices against immigrants, non-francophone communities and Indigenous groups. As a society of immigrants ourselves, it's time to embrace the differences that make up our cultural heritage! Below is a letter drafted by the Department of Education at Bishop's University. It is also available via the Education Department's BU's website.

Watercolour Paintings By Jaya Pavate
Ms. Pavate’s passion for sketching and painting started when she was still in school. She used to sketch her teachers and her friends. Her fascination with drawing, and painting the human forms has continued until today. The play of shadows and light on the face always inspire her. She specializes in watercolor portraits.
La passion de Jaya Pavate pour le dessin et la peinture a commencé quand elle était encore à l'école. Elle avait l'habitude de dessiner ses professeurs et ses amis.

If you had told me twenty years ago that I would become a tattoo artist, let alone own my own studio, I would have thought you were crazy. Whilst I don't regret completing my university degrees and having a career in academia, I have enjoyed the world of art and tattooing considerably more. From painting murals to tattooing, becoming a tattooist has freed me in more ways than words can express. It has helped me find a sense of peace.
