Hi – my name is Allison, and I’m a Tattoo Apprentice located in Winnipeg, Canada.

Creativity has been a part of my life since childhood. Drawing, painting, photography, film, music were all things that captured my heart and allowed me to express myself and the ideas of others. I graduated from the RRC Graphic Design & Advanced Graphic Design programs shortly after high school. My work in the field was varied; from branding and photography, to social media strategy and digital design. While I gained valuable experience and skills from the design world, I found myself creatively exasperated at the 9-5 office bureaucracy.

About 5 years ago, one of my managers suggested I submit my artwork to a local tattoo studio seeking an apprentice. The tattoo culture had always intrigued me, and despite only having 1 tiny tattoo behind my ear, I applied. My failure to achieve the apprenticeship sparked a deeper interest in the mysticism of tattooing and led me down a road of art, many more tattoos and experiences I am very grateful for. Endless nights of drawing and creating finally paid off – and an up-and-coming shop decided to take me in as of May this year.

I believe that all things happen for a reason. My journey through design school, the life-drawing and endless sketchbook entries, to the industry and freelance work, and all the late-nights working in a restaurant have really prepared me for my future as a tattoo artist. I genuinely look forward to learning and growing as a person and artist in this career.
