Gold Winner Adept Tattoos & Body Piercing Studio, Halifax
Silver Winner Heirloom Tattoo
Bronze Winner Oceanic Art
You want to have a good impression of the people who are going to pierce or permanently ink your body. And for the seventh year in a row, readers chose Adept’s Halifax location as their go-to tattoo/piercing spot. Manager Andrew Ross says Adept’s reputation is thanks to a combination of things: “Between the talent that we pull in here, and the professional atmosphere in the shop—the shop is constantly being cleaned and scrubbed and straightened—all of these things I think really add to the atmosphere in here,” he says. After this, he apologizes and leaves to conversation to chat with a client. Even through the telephone line, it’s easy to see that Adept takes customer service seriously.
