Check Out the Ink-redible Art!
This weekend, I flew from NYC to Canada to attend the 2018 Edmonton Tattoo Convention. The convention brought together incredible tattooers from across Canada and around the world, including industry favorites Saga Anderson, Jime Litwalk, and Anrijs Straume. However, going into the weekend, I kept a lookout for local artists that hadn't yet crossed my radar and was pleasantly surprised by the talent I encountered. Edmonton and Calgary are the two largest cities in the province of Alberta—with each boasting over one million residents. The western cities feature a host of amazing tattooers—whose talents range from neo-traditional to trash polka to color realism. Take a look at the gallery below to check out a handful of the immaculate pieces created at this weekend's convention, then let us know which international and Alberta-based artist will be on your watch for the rest of 2018.
