Tattoo Artist

An award winning artist with 20 years experience in the tattoo industry. Previous to tattooing Trevor was a gallery artist who has sold his works internationally. His life has been dedicated to art and the pursuit of continual creative growth through various mediums .

He trained under mentor Mike Young at Eternal Dragon Tattoo in Prince Edward Island. Trevor returned to British Columbia where he worked at various studios most notably Osmosis Tattoo in Richmond B.C. . At Osmosis , Trevor was a partner and driving force on the scene until 2011. He then left to start his own private studio Two Tides Tattoo, a name reflecting his bi coastal life; the east coast where he was born and raised, and the west coast which he now calls home with his wife and two kids. For the last 9 years, Trevor has been expanding and honing his tattooing and business skills working with international artists and guest spotting abroad. In 2019 Trevor and his wife and business partner Michelle decided to open a new storefront location to accommodate an expanding clientele.

โ€œTrevor is the best!โ€.

This is a repost from a fun project I worked on with a great client! We were trying to capture the essence of his dog which I believe had some wolf in him? One of my favourite parts of this piece is the background I designed with the wind swirling through the piece. Follow us for more on Instagram @twotidestattoo and tell a friend who may like this. I want to add more of this type of wind in up coming projects. #wolf #wolftattoo #wolfdog #wolfdogs #mansbestfriend #tattoo #tattoos #tattooed #tattoolife #tattoolifestyle #tattoolifestyles #tattooedboys #tattooedmen #inked #inkedlife #inkedlifestyle #inkedmen #inkwork #vancouvertattooshop #twotidestattoo #vancouvertattooartist #trevormackaytattoo #wheretheytatt #tattooartist #blackandgreytattoo ...

A repost of these awesome kicks that I was commissioned to do by @backgroundgirl Thanks again for the opportunity. These were sent to me as blank sneakers and background girl was just wanting me to go off in my own direction with these. So that is what I did! It was a fun project. I first got started painting on shoes when I had the opportunity years back to work with our friends @elkartelshop doing some work on PF flyers for a collaboration sneaker show (PF flyers are still to date some of my favourite sneakers. @pf_flyers ) give us a follow if you like & leave a comment below ๐Ÿ˜‰ #sneakerhead #sneakers #sneakerheads #sneakeraddict #sneaker #sneakerpimps #sneakerpics #sneakersaddict #sneakerfreaker #sneakercommunity #sneakercustoms #custommade #customsneakers #customshoes #customart #customartwork #converse #converseallstar # #customconverse #twotidestattoo #twotidestattoovancouver #vancouverartist #vancouvertattooshop #vancouvertattooartist #tellsomeone #sharethelove #repost #followifyoulike ...

I would like to take a minute and look back over the past year at all I have been through and at all I have to be thankful for. It has been a long road and a bumpy one. Those who know me know there have been ups and downs. Standing where I am right now and looking at all we have accomplished to get to where we are at this time, I know I would not have gotten here if it was not for those who have weathered the journey with me. There are too many of you to name but I know you know who you are. Opening this new studio has been a tough endeavour and I am happy to be sharing this new journey with my business partner and wife Michelle. She has been a rock through all the troubles we had to go through to get it up and running. I would not have been able to do it without you so I give thanks to her for putting up with me through it all as well. And to my children for going without us at home for the months it took to get up and running, thank you! I would like to give thanks to all the crew I have onboard here as well. @variantheartist , @carlitostattoo77 for making the journey over to the new shop from the old studio. And to @evanrobichaudtattoo my apprentice and @thewoodelf for coming over and joining us here. We have a lot to be thankful for and I have to thank all of our clients past and present who help and have helped along the way so I would like to say thank you to all of you for all you have done for us. A special thanks out to @mistermonkau for helping us get this location. It was a great find and a thank you to @jeff_tam_monkeyking for letting us share the area it means a lot to me and to @a.le.photography for taking great photos for us! So thank you to everyone and I hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving. Give us a follow and grow with us !! #thanksgiving #thanks #vancouvertattooshop #twotidestattoo #tattoo #tattoolife #tattoolifestyle #tattooed #tattooer #tattooers #tattooersofinstagram #vancouvertattooartist #vancouvertattooartists #bctattoo #bctattooshop #bctattooartist #thanks2020 ...
