  • Not to many pot holes, traffic can get a bit backed up with the bikers. Over all a pretty solid design, good quality road work, traffic lights. Most of the things I look for in a street. 
  • One for the walkers. Very pleasant to stroll from shop to interesting shop where one is tempted by delicious food treats or quality Canadian souvinirs. So wonderful to see 19th. century buildings repu...  more »

  • Chris gave me my first tattoo. He nicely combined my idea into a drawing. Lines are solid. Healed quickly and well. I'll be back for sure
  • Got my first ever tattoo here in August 2016, on the 4 year anniversary of my dad passing away. Chris David did the piece. it was one that I designed and he perfected. It came out perfect, and made my wife decide to get tattooed the same day(by Miles, Also amazing work btw). My piece came out even better then I had hoped, and I will be returning for more ink very soon, as will my wife.
  • My first tattoo was good the lines were straight and it was perfect. But when a different guy was asked to do mine he looked nervous like is wasn't his style. After the healing there's more and more mistakes lines not straight and a little disappointed now...
  • I have been tattooed here twice by Ryan. Both times were a great experience. Everyone in the shop was friendly and professional.
  • Gpt some sick ink 2 years ago here
