With 8 full-time diverse Tattoo artists on staff, we are able to handle any tattoo request a customer may have, be it flash or custom, large or small, traditional American, tribal, Japanese, Celtic, Haida, Portraits, watercolor etc… Our 3 body piercers are professionally trained and well versed in piercing placement, aftercare and body anatomy and physiology. They are experienced in all forms of body piercing, from the mild, Navels and Eyebrows to the wild, such as Dermal Punching and Surface Piercing. Many of our tattooers and piercers and/or their work have been featured in magazines and television, and travel around the globe for guest spots and conventions!
All tattoo work is done in a large tattoo studio while piercing clientele enjoy private piercing rooms. Complete privacy is also available for tattoo clients if required. Customers are always welcome to bring one friend back for moral support. We have a large, almost 5000 sq.ft. open studio space with a huge reception area complete with over 5000 pieces of flash and art.
Our friendly and knowledgeable counter staff is ready to greet you and handle all your requests. All of the artists and staff at New tribe are well trained in sterilization, cross-contamination prevention, and maintaining pristine hygienic conditions. All needles and needle-bars are single use, pre-sterilized and are collected and incinerated on a regular basis by qualified third party professionals. Bi-weekly spore tests are performed on both our autoclaves to ensure effectiveness, also by an additional qualified third party (Bi-weekly reports available for viewing on this site). Our shop is regularly inspected by the Toronto board of health and we either meet or exceed all of their standards for sterilization and cleanliness procedures (yearly reports available on this site).
At New Tribe we consider our measures and standards crucial in maintaining an environment where we can provide not only top notch work but also guarantee complete safety for both our staff and clientele. In our industry, we, at New Tribe, do not regard these as “extras”, but rather “essential measures” in ensuring both customer and staff peace of mind. We welcome all inquiries regarding sterilization procedures and are happy to offer a tour of the facilities upon request.
