Best of Halifax

Best Tattoo Artist

Andy Ferrier

Maybe you’re looking for a sleeve, an ornate web of images covering your entire arm. Perhaps it’s a Japanese styled piece: flowers, dragons, demons or a geisha. Or the Americana stuff, Christian icons, anchors, eagles, tall ships. Andy Ferrier can do it all, and more, with a skill and precision that keeps people coming to see him at Utility all year around. “I pretty much do a bit of everything,” says Ferrier, who has seen his business grow with the mainstreaming of tattoos in the culture. “The past couple of years there hasn’t been a slow point in the year.” Utility Tattoo & Body Piercing Studio, 5224 Blowers, 420-1348
