STUDIO SASHIKO is an open concept tattoo studio and retail boutique located in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Our mission is to provide a high quality experience in a comfortable and professional atmosphere. Our service list includes tattooing, cosmetic tattooing, and restorative tattooing with a focus on natural and detailed results.
We strongly believe in embracing the Japanese art of tebori, which is the technique of tattooing by hand. We take pride in the meticulous and detailed process of tattooing. Our studio name, STUDIO SASHIKO, is inspired by the decorative sashiko embroidery styles that adorn traditional indigo dyed fabrics in Japan. This method, sashiko, means "little stabs".
Our in-store retail section boasts a fine selection of carefully curated vintage clothing and accessories as well as locally designed and created apothecary and beauty products.
"SASHIKO 刺し子is a Japanese style of needlework. Literally meaning "little stabs," Sashiko stitching is a simple yet elegant embroidery style that creates repeating patterns of varying complexity."
