Respectable/Quality Tattoo places in Toronto?



Anyone have any good tattoo parlours to recommend? I'm looking to get my first tattoo this week... so far I've heard that New Tribe and Lower East Side are good places, any others?

I've been to almost all of the tattoo places in the GTA. I highly recommend Artatorture.. best prices, and the guy that owns the place is a certified artistic genius. They do a lot of celebrity / athlete (i.e. Toronto Raptor) tattoos.

Artatorture Tattoos
220 Queen E (416) 363-1167

I've drawn a lot of tats for friends, considering getting a arm-band sometime this winter as well.

New Tribe is pretty good too. Not a fan of Way Cool Tattoos though.

Bob Tyrell is known in the local tattoo business... there have been quite a few articles about him in magazines and such. He is known for his shading ability to really make his tats stand out. You'll also notice that with his B&W tatoo's, he's uses white ink mingled with the black, and your natural skin tone, to really bring the shading out. Many other artists will just use black... no white. Take a close look and you'll see.

I heard of Yonge st Tattoos.. they're fairly big. I don't know of anyone who has actually went there though, so I can't really comment.
