Best Tattoo Artist

Adept Tattoos & Body Piercing Studio, Halifax

Gold Winner Rebecca O'Quinn, Heirloom Tattoo

Silver Winner Helena Darling, HFX Tattoo Company

Bronze Winner Amber Thorpe, Adept Tattoos & Body Piercing Studio

Rebecca O’Quinn’s tattoo style—softly shaded yet crisply outlined, with a penchant for romantic, tumbling florals—explains for itself why this is her second year cribbing the Best Tattoo Artist title. But O’Quinn still greets the call with disbelief: “It makes me feel like less of a loser,” she laughs. “It’s basically all I do. I work really hard,” she adds. It’s been a year and a half that she’s been running her own studio stuffed with her self-described “cute and badass” aesthetic. “I wouldn’t have a job without anyone believing in my work—thanks for thinking I’m cool!”
