Gypsy Rose Tattoo & Piercing
Gypsy Rose Tattoo & Piercing opened in March of 2006, with two tattoo artists and one piercer. Nina Gremo, the owner/creative genius behind Gypse Rose, started her career in 1999 at Way Cool – Queen Street in Toronto, a landmark Canadian tattoo studio. She has worked and lived both locally and abroad, and Gypsy Rose is the culmination of her experiences. Since then, they’ve expanded into a smaller, more central venue, with a diverse crew of seven artists and two body piercers. Tattoos and body piercing are available by appointment or walk-in, as long as you have a legitimate government-issued ID.

“I had an amazing experience at Gypsy Rose. My tattoo artist was awesome (Naia). She was extremely professional and enthusiastic about my tattoo and took all my feedback and did a super awesome sketch. She made me feel very comfortable during the experience and encouraged me despite me being a wimpy baby. Her line work, shading, and stippling was all perfect and when I saw the tattoo in the mirror I could not help giving her a Covid elbow bump and telling her she killed it!
I would highly recommend Naia and Gypsy Rose and I think Naia is on her way to being the next ink master! The place was clean professional and the equipment was excellent and comfortable and the price very reasonable and fair.” – Faazil Kassam
Bushido Tattoo was founded in the fall of 2000, and they take pride in delivering high-quality custom tattoos in a clean, healthy, sterile, Alberta Health Services-approved, fun, and friendly atmosphere. Custom tattoos are our preference. Customers must bring in reference material such as images from the internet, from books, photographs or personal sketches while making a tattoo appointment with them. The artist will then create a piece for you that is personal and one-of-a-kind based on this guide./

“I had a piece done by Malinda – who was an absolute gem. Professional, easy to talk to, and the tattoo is outstanding. The shop it self was also well kept, and had their COVID guidelines in place. I felt comfortable, well taken care of, and safe! Looking forward to more pieces in the future :)” – Talia Murchie

“Clean and respectful tattoo studio! Came in for a walk in and Chad was professional, funny and accommodating towards two walk ins. He took the time to get to know us, asked us about our ideas and showed us the sketches. As far as walk ins go, I had a lovely experience. The rest of the team also looked like they were doing lovely work. Thanks for the tattoo!” – Kaitlyn Mainville
Kensho tattoo company
Kensho tattoo company was launched in April 2015 by Rick Wilson. After several years of working in various shops and owning their own shop in Victoria, B.C., they decided it was time to put their vision to life once more with Kensho. The drive to open a shop that puts a strong focus on consistency, convenience, and tattoo excellence is the driving force behind this venture.
Even though they are well known for Japanese tattoos, that is not all they do, they are willing to take on every project, large or small. They work tirelessly to build pieces that you will be able to hang for the rest of your life. Paying particular attention to how the image will sit and flow on the body, as well as becoming mindful of how the tattoo will age over time.
