Tattoo Artist

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.



My name is Cody and art has always been a big part of my life. Ever since the first time I put pencil to paper I was hooked.

When I was 13 I saw my first tattoo and I knew that one day that is what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.

And here I am.
