    This is my absolute favourite shop to go to for tattoos, and it's taken a long time to find one that I really love. I've been tattooed by three artists at John Street, all of them really cool dudes that make you feel super comfortable and do an incredible job. I have to do a huge shout out to Alex for being the absolute best artist I've been to. He has done multiple different styles of tattoos for me and every single one looks incredible, I can't be more happy with how each has turned out. He also has incredible communication skills and makes sure every step of the way that the tattoo is perfect, both in design, size, and placement.As someone who is awful with full review

    What a wonderfully welcoming shop filled with extremely talented artists and zero egos. I had been getting tattooed by ultra talented and humble Alex Farquhar for several years before he moved to the John Street family. I couldn't be more stoked for where he landed, the family he found at this shop, also the one I gained. They have a beautifully diverse selection of artists who constantly challenge themselves and each other to work outside their comfort zones.This is the first shop in a long time, that I would feel comfortable getting tattooed by any one of the thoughtfully curated artists in it's roster in a dealers choice situation.Services: Custom tattoo lettering
