Pink Ink 2017

Our annual Pink Ink event is coming, and this year, it will last all month long!!  During past events, we offered set designs at set prices. However, since our Pink Ink event was packed into one day, we were hard pressed to help create the customized pieces you truly wanted to represent the strength and courage of yourself or loved ones, due to time restrictions. So this year we have not only extended the event for the whole month of October but we are happily accepting custom creations!! Our standard shop minimum and hourly rates will still apply; however $20 from every ribbon related piece will be collected throughout the month and donated to the F.A.C.E.I.T. program just like the years prior. Come on in to your local Neon Crab and have a consultation for your custom pink ribbon today!
*Past flash ribbons will still be available for $80+taxes each. Ribbon colours may vary but proceeds all go towards F.A.C.E.I.T.
http://www.faceitbreastcancer.com
So give us a call or stop on by to book your pink ribbon tattoo.  Show support, raise funds, and get involved!!

Introducing Megan!

 

For those of you who have been in and out of the London studio recently, you likely have already run into Megan once or twice, but the time has come to officially announce her presence to the world.  Neon Crab Tattoos & Piercing would like to welcome Megan to our growing staff of talented artists. Megan is a true homegrown tattooist, trained from the ground up, right here in our London studio. Megan began her tattooing career in 2011, as a co-op student in the arts program from John Paul II. After seeing the potential Megan possessed in her phenomenal ability to draw and create, coupled with her drive and passion for tattooing, we then continued to keep Megan on through a placement in co-operation with Youth Opportunities Unlimited. During this time Megan’s ability, knowledge and technique grew and grew. Once this placement was complete we then took her on as a full apprentice. During her apprenticeship under the watchful eyes and expert tutelage of our award winning artists, Megan began to truly develop her talent. With super clean line work, whimsical designs, and photo realistic artwork, Megan has rightfully earned her place among the crew here at Neon Crab, and we are glad to welcome her aboard. Megan’s strengths lie in realism and fine line work, with influences like Terry Ribera and Scotty Murster. She is a graduate with an Arts high skill major, and is an accomplished piercer as well!! During her spare time she keeps herself busy with her painting, and commission work. We are excited that Megan has joined us here at Neon crab Tattoos & Piercing, and you will be too. Come on in and see what Megan can do for you, and walk away with a tattoo that you love for a lifetime.

Tragic Predilection



Come on out for an evening of art wine and music at the Arts Project right here in London, Ontario.

Tragic Predilection is a journey into the macabre. This exhibition and sale will feature the unconventional art of Neon Crab Tattoos & Piercing's own Will Graham along with Sue Laking and investigate our fascination with tragedy and death. Come on out to the artist reception on July 27th to mingle with the artists, purchase some art, have some cocktails and have a great time. To set the mood, the artist reception will feature a special live performance by Violence Therapy.


Will Graham is a professional tattoo artist, award winning chalk artist and street painter, as well as an accomplished visual artist. His bold and vibrant paintings are heavily influenced by the likes of VanGogh, Tim Burton and David Bollt. Will’s subject matter varies from landscapes, and pop icons to the grotesque and absurd. The majority of his work focuses on tattoo ‘style’ imagery, but he is capable of producing nearly anything requested.


The exhibition will run from July 24th –August 4th
In the South Gallery

Artist reception will be held on Friday, July 27th 7-9pm.

Hey guys, the 14th annual international Northern Ink Exposure tattoo convention will be taking place in Toronto June 16th - 17th, and we will be there! Unfortunately this means that the London Neon Crab Tattoos & Piercing will be operating on a skeleton crew this weekend. But not to worry, we are still open and can take care of all of your tattooing needs like normal, but if you NEED to get in this weekend, you might want to call ahead and book your appointment. Sadly, we will not have a piercer on staff this weekend, but we will all be back and operating as usual on Monday June 18th. But if you need ink bad, or you absolutely must get pierced and can't wait the weekend, give us a call and we will get you in before we go.  For the rest of you who just can't get enough, you can check us out in this month's issue of XALT Tattoo magazine.

Guest Artist: Trevor Goodwin






















That's right, the well travelled and hugely talented Trevor Goodwin will be tattooing out of Neon Crab Tattoos & Piercing in London for a very short engagement. he will be taking appointments between March 20th and April 1st 2012. So don't miss out, come on in or give us a call and book your space today, before time runs out!
Trevor Goodwin decided to apprentice in a custom shop after spending 15 years painting graffiti in the streets of Toronto under the handles 'Wymp' and 'Horus'. (recently gaining the nickname 'Trevvy Mettal')
His mentor passed along a deep reverence for tattooing as a craft, and that seriousness can be seen when he works. But like most tattooists, he also has a sharp wit and loves meeting eccentric new co-workers and clients.
Finding creatice challenges in tattooing is what drives him to perfection now. Having worked in Toronto for a few years, he's begun to travel to do guest spots and is looking forward to a stint in Calgary next, before he heads to Vancouver and then back to Toronto. Specializing in script, Japanese, and American traditional, he spent the last few months in the Maritimes getting back to his family roots and studying nautical references first hand.
Trevor says: "I want to work, everywhere. - Every shop, every co-worker, and every client will teach you something...One day I'll open my own studio, but for now I'm a sponge, out to learn as much as I can, and become a respected artist worthy of one day passing down as much knowledge as I have been able to earn"
Attracted to bold colour, but also the ultimate contrast of black work, Trevor has developed his own tribal style that fits the body and accentuates forms in a flattering way that can only be described as badass! Hot rods and pinup girls are subjects he's hoping to do more of in the future, and script...always more script!

Pistol Pete Is Here!


As the Neon Crab celebrates it's third anniversary, we are also welcoming a new artist into our ever growing studio. 'Pistol' Pete Vanderheide is an experienced veteran in this business, who has been tattooing professionally for nearly a decade! He is a master of horror images, or anything in black & grey work, and is a magician when it comes to custom design work. His incredible talent is directly influenced by the masters of horror that came before him, such as Paul Booth, and Bob Tyrell, and it shows in his work. He has gained experience, and worked in many other tattoo studios, including London's own Tattoo World, where he got his start. In the last few years Pete has been on the road working exclusively on custom designed tattoo work created specific for each client, as well as pursuing his love of painting and custom flash designs. We here at Neon Crab Tattoos & Piercing are glad that Pete has decided to get off the road, settle down and lend his talents to ur diverse crew of tattoo artists right here. We also welcome Pete's extensive clientele to his new home. So come on in and have 'Pistol' Pete design something for you, you'll be amazed with what he can do!
