STUDIO SASHIKO is an open concept studio and boutique retail front 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 cosmetic tattooing, areola restorative tattooing and scar camouflage.
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 realistic hair strokes one by one to create the illusion of fullness. 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 housewares, accessories, clothing and gifts 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."
