Halifax Master Tattoo Artist group, year 2012, established a Downtown Studio: some of us returning as international travelers, who have drawn inspiration from great artists such as Swiss surrealist painter, sculptor, H.R. Giger; the Filip Leu style of full body tattoo artwork, now then, please attempt to imagine combining all those qualities, with the added Tattoo realism style of Tom Renshaw in his wild life, landscape and portraits, consequently you must have arrived at our downtown Halifax Tattoo application Studio, furthermore, however, we happen to be pioneers of Biomechanical Tattoo design and application. 

Since we are often busy in consultation, thereafter necessarily designing, in preparation for the clients Tattoo application, we cannot allow for unexpected interruptions caused by ‘walk in’  visits, for this reason, we have adopted a ‘By Appointment Only Policy’; we will be honored to apply your special tattoo design, we offer free unlimited consultation and rendition of designs.


As sponsors of the NOVA SCOTIA TATTOO FORUM, / community discussion bulletin board – please kindly note.

Our commissioning and or sponsorship of the Nova Scotia Tattoo Forum, / community discussion bulletin board has become necessary to help preserve the craft of GOOD tattooing and to serve as an educational resource for those who want to learn the difference between good and bad Tattooers. Because the Halifax Tattoo Machine – downtown studio – spends 95% of its time fixing or covering up bad tattoos, it has become clear that there are more bad than good tattoo artists out there, so it is more important than ever to assist tattoo enthusiasts and advocates alike to do your research before getting tattooed.

Hopefully the ‘ Tattoo Artist Spotlight ‘ area of the Nova Scotia Tattoo Forum – list of award winning Nova Scotia artists – will prove to be revealing in these matters of accessing quality Tattoo Artists.



We operate as a ‘ By Appointment Only ‘ Tattoo application Studio.  We are Master Tattoo Artists designing original Custom Tattoo Art then applying the designs as tattoos on skin at our downtown studio.  Embracing all possible Tattoo subject matter; alternating from one style to another with ease, as our design department is fully professional and our resident Master Tattoo Artists have on average of ‘ 15years’ experience, in tattoo application.

For these herein above mentioned reasons, our professionalism will be noticed as we (during consultation) collect and file your intimate memorable moments and or awaken your passionate dreams by original and spontaneous ‘pencil on paper ‘ tattoo design and style.


Please find provided below links to portfolios of fellow Artists from whom we share our inspirations.

 “Flash and dash” – please note commercial “Lick and stick tattoos” are not what we do, however, traditional American Oldschool style Tattoo does have a special place in our hearts.

The legacy of traditional American Oldschool style Tattoo can be correctly applied and true to traditional style as from Sailor Jerry Collins or Nova Scotia’s pioneer Jerry Swallow, however much study is required to authentically reproduce the classics, which we have perfected.

This is precisely our goal, to prevent unsophisticated Tattoo Art designs from dominating the Nova Scotia Tattoo landscape by setting the example of traditional Oldschool styles perfected in detail. The Halifax Tattoo Machine downtown studio will continue to encourage “up start” beginner tattooers to seriously study the art before  attempting to Tattoo on skin.

Nevertheless, once we harmonize your project desires with our aspirations: unlimited consultation and design time will be dedicated, free of charge; this may begin following our preliminary telephone and or email consultation; we consider ‘the deposit’, a sign of good faith, and evidence of our client’s sincerity to follow through to the completion of the project. All design time is free of charge but not without a deposit to be used at Tattoo application time.

Commissioning our Halifax Tattoo Artist design team, requires, that, you provide a detailed description of your artistic goals, including such details as:

  1. the size, placement and area to be covered;
  2. the subject matter of the art design:
  3. what exactly is your insight/goal;
  4. what is the personal significance of the imagery (may help the designing artist);
  5. explanation, as to possibly why the client believes a certain style is desirable;
  6. your preferred style may be: Portraits; Realism; Japanese; American Old School; Tribal such as Polynesian

Please Note: although we choose to be a custom design studio, we do, however, accept commissions to reproduce images, such as picture portraits or any image of an intimate nature.

We use only 100% disposable supplies, which means:

  1.  new needles;
  2.  new tubes;
  3.  all surfaces are freshly recovered in disposable non porous covering each session;
  4.  we use holistic organic supplies, for the best experience possible.;
  5. the artist’s body surface area – hair – face – hands are surgical standard covered;
  6.  our artist goes as far to protect you the client as to wear a full body apron.

We do not permit perfumes or any synthetic scent to be in our environment, for that reason the clients will enjoy a scent free environment.

The atmospheric air conditioning is HEPA filtered germ reduction and circulated; temperature is also controlled including humidity reduction.

 The Tattoo Application rates are:

·         $150 dollars per hour for each and every style except realism.

·         $200 dollars per hour for Realism, which requires a great deal more preparatory design; please kindly remember,we do not charge for design time or materials.

However, if you have a budget in mind for your project, this is indeed relevant, because, we are prepared to offer, to you, at a reduced rate, several of our pet portfolio design projects, which you may find attractive. This could be beneficial for both client and artist, which for obvious reasons will have a special reduced rate.

 Your convenient contact schedule, will obviously be required for our files.

The client supplies a non-refundable deposit, which is required, before our artists begin final design renditions of any Art project.

Our ‘final design technique’ is to accomplish ‘real to life’ size scaled designs, this this is why we will require measurement of your intended ‘Project Application Surface Area’;  Client, if convenient, usually provides a phone number, we will call client at our cost, according to the client`s convenient contact schedule, and when necessary consultation shall be by telephone , preliminary designs will be electronically scanned, then emailed for consideration / approval by the client. As usual, as is our practice, there will be no limitation on consultation and design renditions will be offered until client is satisfied.

 Tattoo application will be at your convenience, since your Tattoo design shall always be in your personal account file waiting for application. Minimum 2 hour tattoo application sessions are available for appointments. Please Note:  Clients may wish to accelerate the project completion date by combining multiple sessions, same day, however, please note – between continuous four hour sessions, we will require a minimum one hour break . 

 Thank you, for your consideration.

    I’ve been overdue for some ink for quite sometime now. Browsing kijiji just before my phone dies I stumble across your humble offer of 150$s worth of free ink. I am very interested in seeing your art. So before my phone dies I wanted to express my interest and appreciation for the value you put on art.
