Erik is originally from Burlington, Ontario but has called British Columbia his home for the last 8 years. He spends most of his time skateboarding, snowboarding and painting. Having started his tattoo collection at a young age, Erik's time spent in tattoo shops helped spark his love for the craft. His artwork featuring big lines and bold colours is exemplary of his affinity for American traditional tattoos. He finds inspiration from tattoo legends and pioneers like Cap Coleman, Joe Lieber, Lyle Tuttle and Ed Hardy. Erik is excited to learn about tattooing and carry on the tradition of the craft. He is grateful for the opportunity to apprentice under Tyler ATD at TNT Tattoo + Barber.
