I’m Lee, a queer tattooer and co-owner of Tapestry Tattoos.
I graduated from OCADU and have been a tattoo artist for 6 years. I started tattooing myself with out the intention of tattooing others but my practice grew as it became my primary art medium and people started asking. I think a lot of the support I felt early on came from other queer and trans people who expressed anxiety over entering a tattoo shop - they preferred my home because they knew I offered a welcoming and accepting atmosphere. Years later that attitude is still an integral part of my work in any space that I work in.
If there’s anything you’d like to let me know before a tattoo session (ie. pronoun preference, accessibility needs etc) please included it in your email.
I enjoy travelling for work and if you have any inquiries about my next guest spot feel free to inquire or request my on the We Are Coal app.
$150/hr + (13% tax)
5 monthly spots available at sliding scale rate $110-150/hr + (13% tax)
I prefer not to do any tattoos that are 1x1"
To reserve an appointment I require a 40$ security deposit which is included in the final price. This is included as a sketch fee and on the day of our appointment I will have at least three sketches for you to choose from. Typically I do not send sketches out before hand because of the volume of drawings I have to do, but am open to it if you ask me about it before hand.
All appointments need to be made via email. Send me a brief description of what you want in the form I send back to you. If it is custom work include a visual reference for me.
To confirm an appointment a 40$ security deposit is needed.
