'THE NORTHERN TATTOO'
Founded in 2015
by Mackenzie Evanjeline
for her solo tattoo practice
& has since grown into...
THE NORTHERN COLLECTIVE
Our collective is destined to take under it's wings many talented artists of unique styles who share in & appreciate the values that best exemplify 'The Northern'.
a safe & inclusive environment
We aim to: forever maintain
the welcoming & respectful environment that we've cultivated over the years...
Ensure a safe place for ink lovers of every & any culture, skin tone, gender, sexual identity, body type, occupation, class or status...
& Steer clear of the sort of exchange that leaves clients feeling like they are on tattoo conveyor belt.
keeping our practices
clean, green & ethical
in an increasingly desperate climate, more focus than ever lands on the materials we use, where they come from, how they are made & what happens when we're done with them.
Our goal is to eliminate as much harmful waste from the tattoo process as possible
so we are currently phasing out our use of plastic all together & replacing them with greener alternatives. Such as tattoo safe, bio-degradable barriers, dip & ink cups, and an eco-tank, cartridge free, plastic film free stencil printer.
with additional focus on using materials that are vegan, plant-sourced, responsibly packaged & ideally safely compostable.
the art in
We aim to ensure that all
of our current & future

to good use bettering ourselves, Our Industry, society & the world
around us in as many
facets as possible.

This is why we offer pre-drawn custom sessions.
You can provide us with whatever guidance or references that may help us peek inside your head & pull out a design.
Even if you haven't yet formed an image in your own mind
We want you to be able to make changes,
ask questions & feel comfortable
asking for what you need
We know that communication is the key
to ensuring that the end result is something
you will be happy wearing for a lifetime
For those comfortable committing to getting inked
without seeing a finalized concept ahead of time,
some of our artists offer freehand sessions.
Artist/Client relationships can be for life.
Your tattoo certainly is,
So we recognize that your experience with your
artist or shop can become synonymous with the
tattoo you will be wearing & we aim to ensure that
both are positive.
