The first time I can remember really getting into drawing, I was 13, and drawing on all my older brothers friends jean jackets. I was born in Kentville, NS. At the age of 16 years, I started tattooing friends to get experience. When I turned 20 years I went into a local tattoo shop in Kentville and walked out with an Apprenticeship that lasted 5 years. The opportunity arose for me to move to Alberta in 2004 and I jumped on it. In 2008 I moved to Lloydminster to work in a shop, and that is where I met Dez, who would later become my wife. I always knew I wanted my own shop so when opportunity presented itself Dez and I jumped on it and never looked back. I have been tattooing now for 29 years now and have learned a lot of techniques along the way. I pride myself on the wide range of styles I can create, my favourite being Black and Grey shade. Dark Dark Dark. Which brings me to Dark Hour. My wife and I brought our dreams to life with our shop in 2009, and from then on this dream has been amazing. I pride myself and our team on our professionalism and respect for this industry and really look forward to where we will take Dark Hour Ink in the future.
