 Our Story 

Don't forget your roots1

Light Stroke

Much has changed in our lives since the pandemic began. Some of what we loved has been lost. Art and culture have served as the sacrificial lamb while human interactions and celebrations became luxuries we could not afford. But for many, these things are essential to life, if not the purpose of life itself. The creators of MY Ink Tattoo Studio have not forgotten the importance of art and culture and the interactions and celebrations that come with them. We are thrilled to finally have the opportunity to bring more of it to the lives around us.

Life is sometimes hard. Things go wrong, in life and in love and in business and in friendship and in health and in all other ways that life can go wrong. And when things get tough, this is what you should do. Make good art.

- Neil Gaiman

 

Toronto offers a unique experience to artists which serves as the perfect setting for our vision. It is the nucleus for the greatest diversity of art and culture found on the planet. It has been our dream to explore the journies and stories of the people who inhabit this great city, to help them transform those stories into a living art piece. We strive to understand the journies that led you here and the stories along the way, for it is you that we seek to inspire and to have that inspiration guide the creative process. If you' want a tattoo but are unsure of what design you want, let us help you find the inspiration. We believe that everyone has a story to tell and we cannot wait to hear yours.

Misty Mountains

To us, tattoos are more than just ink and needles. Tattoos are a collaboration between the artist and you. This is why we believe tattooing is the greatest job in the world. It lets us connect on profound levels with so many amazing individuals. There is so much that art can do for our lives. Art is the universal language we all speak. More can be said in a picture than any written word could ever express. We want to help you capture the exact meaning and purpose you wish to express with your new tattoo so that it may echo outwards to those who see it. 

Our artists share in our passion for creating and celebrating art. It is for these reasons that we are only happy when providing you with the best possible experience we can. We are certain that you will love our spacious and modern studio featuring state-of-the-art electronic, adjustable beds to maximize your comfort and improve our artist's performance, floor to ceiling LED mirrors so you can view your tattoo in confidence, and an outdoor terrace when you need a break and fresh air. We are excited at the opportunity to connect with you and help you create your own piece of art that is truly you.

 

 

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

Valaeth

Tattoo Artist

Valaeth is a tattoo artist working out of Toronto who specializes in dark trash realism. He started his tattoo journey in 2019, but art, in all various forms, has always been a part of his existence. He draws inspiration from literature, philosophy, pop culture and an embrace of darkness in beauty. His favourite subject to tattoo is portraits - the history behind faces and eyes speaks far more than anything else can. Even tattooing the same face twice is never the same; an expression, emotion, thought create certain moments in time, translated in ways that cannot be replicated.
