In 2008 I took a road trip across Canada to interview tattooist for a book project I was working on. Over the course of a year and a half I interviewed about a hundred Canadian tattooist from Vancouver Island to Halifax, Nova Scotia. This Blog is the starting point for my book. I will be posting photographs and profiling some of the great artist from today and yesterday. When I publish my book I will be adding more profiles than the ones you see here, also the book will include more photographs to help illustrate the story. Over the course of the next year I will be adding profiles of tattooist on this blog to give you a sample of what the book will contain. Be sure to check back often to see what’s new. When the book comes to print I will be donating a portion of the sales to a charity at that time.
