Shannon O’Shea is a Vancouver based multi-disciplinary artist. Shannon’s tattoo style ranges from fantasy photo-realism to bold and detail neo-traditional. She started off tattooing in the style of blackwork and from there wanted to try everything. She never fears a challenge and is a master of cover-ups and complex large scale pieces. Some of her favourite thematic content to tattoo includes but is not limited to: anything fantasy based, mythological, magickal, metal, occult, and dark realism.
Shannon loves large scale pieces because she loves to get to know her clients and values the social aspect of tattooing very highly. She can often be found laughing loudly with her clients or creating a gregarious shop sing-a-long situation. She is happiest when everyone is laughing and the vibes are high. When she is not found at work she is often off adventuring around her mountain house dwelling or doing witchcraft. She loves entertaining, cooking the house down, and attending metal shows with her partner in crime.

Stephanie is a fine line, black and grey tattoo artist based out of Vancouver, BC. Highly inspired by nature and the world around her, Steph specializes in plants and botanicals, while incorporating other-worldly elements, resulting in an ethereal style, unique to her. To sum up her style: she’s a cosmic, nature artist who exposes the magic in everyday life through surrealism work.
Stephanie has been an artist all her life and has worked as a graphic designer, illustrator, and product designer before making the switch over to tattooing. Having started her career as a hand-poke tattoo artist, she brings a unique and personal style to all her work. She’s recently switched over to electric tattooing, which allows her to take her tattoos to the next level, with bigger pieces and more detail (woo!). Steph believes strongly in fostering strong relationships with her clients to make the tattooing experience as personal and special as possible.
When she’s not in the shop putting rad art on beautiful humans, she can be found in the forest or by ocean drawing inspiration for her work, spending time with her dog and husband, practicing tarot, and of course, caring for her many plant babies.
