My Approach

Your experience should be easy
+ fun from start to finish

I'm as excited about my craft today

as when I first began, and constantly upgrading my skills & tools.


I'll geek out as much over advancements in bandage & machine technology

or numbing creams, as I will about

the next Batman movie.

Because every detail of the process

contributes to a tattoo that will

age well, a session you'll enjoy

- and hopefully produce one

of your favourite pieces.


After a decade of tattooing at other people's Toronto shops,

in 2008 I opened Imperial Tattoo on Ossington Avenue.


For 12 years my multi-artist studio created high quality custom artwork,

tattooed at branded events + conventions and made lifelong

connections with our loyal clients & community.

Between lockdowns in 2020 we closed our Dundas West doors

to focus exclusively on serving my clients from my new King Street West Studio.
