We're sad to post some bad news today: Julian took a tumble off his bike and while he is very much alive and kicking, he has unfortunately damaged his hand. He'll be casted for about 3 weeks and things will get re-evaluated after that.
This means his whole schedule will be thrown off for quite awhile and we ask for your patience while we sort it all out.
The shop will be contacting Julian's appointments personally by phone as soon as possible but if you are booked anytime in the next month it is safe to assume your appointment/s will be post-poned.
Please stay tuned for more information about Julian's schedule. To those with appointemnts, sorry for the inconvenience. We understand that people wait a long time to be tattooed by Julian but unfortunately accidents happen.

five cents would like to officially announce that Sarah Rogers is here now and tattooing up a storm.
Come check her out! (but not in a pervy way....)

Due to the fact that Julian's waiting list has extended into September he is going to stop taking new consultations for awhile.
If you are interested in getting new work by Julian, please call the shop in April*.
Until then, you are still more than welcome to stop by to say "Hi", look at portfolios, and tour around the gallery (new show coming up in February).
Perhaps you might want to get something small from Julian's apprentice, Rhonda, while you wait... kind of like a tattoo-appetitizer? (You can see what she's up to over on tumblr.)
(*In the past Julian has started a waiting list for consultations but this time around he is trying something different... so there will no double waiting list...)

Julian has landed safely back in his home-nest... and speaking of nests, he'll be doing some live-painting at ARTSNEST, the "Support Local" event being held at Magpie Jewellery (Westboro location) tomorrow night.

1. Julian is flying off to warmer climes for a week so the shop is closed until Thursday, Nov. 22nd. We'll return your phone calls then.
2. Joel Conroy is no longer at this shop. You can contact him directly through his email: email@example.com
3. Julian's face will soon be consumed by a giant beard because he got tangled up in some strange competition during the Montreal Tattoo Convention. Now he can't shave until next year's convention... Come say goodbye to his face next week and check out the Self Propelled Art Show while you're at it!
4. Rhonda, the apprentice, is doing some tattooing now. If you are interested in volunteering some skin to help her learn come by the shop and have a chat with her.

The opening for Self Propelled (a bicycle-inspired art show) was very well-attended. A big "Thank You" to everyone who made it out (except for that one guy who leaned up against a few of the artworks...maybe next time don't do that!)
The show will hang until early December so there is still time to take it all in and maybe pick up a gift for the art-loving-bike-rider on your list.
Thanks also to Tall Tree Cycles, Kichessippi Brewery, Union Local 613 for the support/help/drinks/food and to Ross Proulx who made the awesome poster. And of course, thanks to all the artists who participated. Good stuff!
