Niagara Falls, Ontario

Charlie “Harley Charlie” Duarte at Way Cool Tattoos

Bright, bold colours are what people most know me for.

What’s popular in your shop right now?
We do custom work, so it’s definitely a mix. But in Halifax anything to do with the sea, the ocean, is always popular here. Anchors and lighthouses. Octopi.

Do you have a tattoo you’re most proud of?
So many of them. It’s usually the most recent. I just finished a full leg sleeve. It’s of Poseidon with the Kraken crushing a boat.

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever tattooed on someone?
I tattooed a sun and three teardrops on a guy’s scrotum.

What’s the favourite piece on your own body?
Probably my sleeve, it’s a nun and a church by Damian Robertson in Banff.

What’s the first thing someone should consider before getting a tattoo?
They should find a good artist they can click with. That’s the most important. Cleanliness would be second.
