" New Moon Tattoo was established in 1982 by legendary tattooist Dan Allaston, a pioneer in contemporary tattooing in Canada as well as producing the first Canadian international tattoo conventions to showcase international artists in 1993 and 1994.
Traveling extensively through the nineties and into the 21st century, Dan worked with professional tattooists from all over the world while building a team of tattooing and piercing professionals that carry on the traditions of tattooing and continue to explore new techniques in order to offer all styles of work to their clients."

STUDIO UPDATES:

Dearest Ottawa,

We have felt the need to merge our beloved studios. We have ultimately decided to close our Orleans studio and have all our staff under one roof. An end to an era but a new beginning to our mothership, the yellow submarine, our west end studio.

As we enter our 42nd year, we would like to thank the over 41 resident artists as well as the 55 guest artists we’ve had the honour of hosting over this time. Not to mention the over 30 counter humans that have helped us over the years.
