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."

CURRENT COVID-19 UPDATES:

Dearest Ottawa,

Due to Covid-19 uncertainties 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 40th year, we would like to thank the over 32 resident artists as well as the 35 guest artists we’ve had the honour of hosting over this time. Not to mention the 23 counter humans that have helped us over the years.

Currently some of our artists books are currently closed. All piercing clients are welcome to book appointments through our website. However some services may
be modified due to current Covid-19 mandates.

We cannot wait to see you all again. 🏼We cannot thank you enough for the support over the last 39 years. 🏼
