Best of Halifax

Best Tattoo Artist

Amber Thorpe, Adept Tattoos

Once again in 2011, Amber Thorpe helped bring us the Maritime Tattoo Festival, the fifth annual, as a matter of fact. As if she wasn’t busy enough, her store---Adept Tattoos on Quinpool Road---is a place with a constant buzz from the sound of needles burrowing into flesh. Thorpe has a whack of experience under her belt, having started at the legendary Way Cool Tattoos in Toronto, had her own shop in Alberta, and is comfortable with a variety of styles, colours, cover-ups and even tribal work.

Amber Thorpe takes Best Tattoo Artist for the first time; the readers take notice.
“Not only is she a master of her craft, she's also bringing a lot of positive attention to (and bringing up the professional level of) tattooing in Halifax.”

First Runner-up: Andy Ferrier, Utility Gallery Tattoos and Piercing
Second Runner-up Lydia Klenk, Utility Gallery Tattoos and Piercing
