Happy Collectors

I saw Kat today to get the first tattoo I ever had done covered up with a bigger and flashier version. Very happy with how the session went and looking forward to seeing it healed. First person I sent a pic of the completed work to came back saying "Beautiful!!"

Kat is amazing artist and an amazing person. I had a great time, and I come out with an even better tattoo. Can’t recommend enough. Lots of time and effort were put into placement and making sure everything was perfect before any ink was layed.

The atmosphere is amazing and the artists, even better. Kristy was great, she took the time to make sure it was what I wanted and how I wanted it. She was very detail oriented and it showed off in the tattoo. 100/10 would recommend.

Kat is.an amazing artist with great vision. I have come to the point with her in which I show up after telling her my idea and just let her go. Everything she comes up with is better than I originally dreamt up. I trust her completely.

Kristy was absolutely amazing. I sent her an idea of what I wanted and she went above and beyond what I could expect. I wanted a stitch tattoo with water color. She took this pic and changed the pose and also added more color. For only an hour of tattoo time she nailed it!!! I'm super happy with my tattoo and can't wait till it heals so I can show it off to family and friends. Thanks a bunch Kristy you rock!!!

Best experience - from start to finish - for my first tattoo (memorial). Contacted about getting a tattoo done and was asked to send in picture. Pic sent and advised them what changes I’d like. Few days later was contacted to say Kristy would be my tattoo artist. Made consult appointment with her. Day of consult - Kristy has pic on iPad and we discuss various things about tattoo - changes, placement, size, etc. Tattoo day - Kristy shows me tattoo stencil - in my opinion - went over and above of what I was expecting! After discussing placement - tattoo gets done - with a few questions along the way. Even after care of tattoo was super easy -especially for a tattoo newbie! Love my tattoo and almost everyone that has seen it - has liked it. Definitely recommend Kristy and Mama Tried. If/when I decide to get another tattoo - will be back.

I have been following many tattoo artists on social media, waiting to find the perfect artist that I felt could do the type of realism I wanted.. I stumbled upon Kat's page and knew instantly she was the one. She was able to create EXACTLY what I wanted in a tattoo. Kat is an unbelievable artist on paper and that talent flows right into her tattooing. I would HIGHLY recommend Kat to anyone who has been searching for the perfect artist for their perfect piece!

I had a fantastic experience getting tattooed by apprentice, Kathleen. I was made very comfortable in studio and was provided excellent education on aftercare by Kathleen and Kat. I was impressed by Kat's attentiveness to her apprentice and Kathleen's clear skill just a few tattoos in. I've been to quite a few studios and will definitely be back to this one for the high calibre of artist and cozy atmosphere.

First tattoo by Kat and the results are far beyond expectations. I gave her an idea without many specifics and she ran with it to come up with a beautiful original piece I’m proud of. Her creativity and superb craftsmanship shine through.
All the staff were welcoming and helpful from my first consultation to the finished piece. Would highly recommend. !!! 10/10

Just had my first appointment & Kat totally blew me away. Her professionalism, care, & attention to detail have no match. The only thing that compares to all that is her skill as a tattoo artist. My tattoo is only at an early stage & already I am so impressed & can't wait for my next session. I honestly cannot give Kat enough praise & feel so lucky to have found her.

I went to Mama Tried for my first tattoo ever today and everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Kristy was my artist and her design was exactly what I wanted. She was amazing and friendly and let me talk her ear off because I was nervous. She also answered all of my questions and did an amazing job. I will definitely be back!

Had my first session with Kat about a week ago and I cannot say enough kind things about her and her work!! So much care and attention was placed on the design and placement of the tattoo and the tattooing itself. Her workspace is clean and Kat is super friendly and puts a lot of work into what she’s tattooing on you. I’ve told numerous people about her work all ready and will continue to do so. One more session and I can’t wait! Her realism work is AMAZING. Highly recommend her! �

Harmeet is an incredibly gifted artist and a master of fine detail. I approached him to help me complete a sleeve that I had envisioned for a very long time. He listened intently to what I was wanting and has been bringing it to life ever since! Only one or two sessions left to go! Harmeet takes a lot of pride in his work and it shows. He is a personable guy with a great sense of humour and a pleasure to be around! I highly recommend him!
