Wow..Covid aside posting here really got away from us. It is pretty amazing that we have been doing this for over 15 years and such a bummer that our big 1-5 happened during lockdown. In any case, you guys (our clients) have been incredibly supportive and have kept us going strong for a decade and a half. Sincerely, thank you.
If you haven't been to the shop recently, we have totally reno'd our piercing room (now there are 2!) Come check it out.
Finally, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and a Happy Festivus for the Rest of us. Love GR.
AUGUST 5th - 2018
Join the Gypsy Rose Tattoo and Piercing family for a fun filled charitable day! As in years past, we will offer pre-drawn tattoo designs as well as a set list of standard piercings (including jewelry) for $50 (tattoos) and $20 (piercings) and 15 non-perishable food/personal care items. All items donated and 100% of funds raised will be donated directly to the Veterans Food Bank of Calgary. Designs will be posted on our social media pages in the weeks leading up to the event.
It is in-excusable that in a country where so much food goes to waste, people in our own backyard go to bed hungry and without the basic comforts we take for granted. For some Canadian vets, a difficult return from duty combined with a struggling local economy has proven too much to overcome. It is our simple goal to help make life better for these people.
We hope to be able to do 80-100 tattoos and as many piercings as humanly possible! We will do our best to work through as many pieces as we can. That said, your help with this cause is desperately needed, so we ask that even if we aren't able to tattoo or pierce you, please still consider donating anything you can to help.
How it works:
As with real estate, same with tattooing… LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION.
You’re about to spend some of your hard earned money to beautify your meat suit. We want to ensure you’re going to get the best result and most bang for your buck. So, when you’re thinking about a new tattoo, or even your first one, please keep these images and suggestions in mind.
In most cases, finger tattoos will wind up fading within 6-8 months.
Foot/Toe tattoos are more vulnerable to infection, than any other part of the body.
Yes, it’s going to hurt
The question of tattoo ink and veganism!
Here at Gypsy Rose Tattoo and Piercing, we’re very vegan friendly! You’re making an ethical and informed choice about the inks used in your newest piece of art, and we want to set your mind at ease!
Don't worry, little vegans. Gypsy Rose Artists (primarily) use the World Famous line of Vegan Inks, Killer Silver Line, and Kuro Sumi Tattoo Ink as well. There are incidence of inks containing non-vegan additives in the shop, and if you prefer only vegan ink being used, please talk with your artist and they will ensure your wishes are followed.
