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.

“Trevor is the best!”.

Had a great time on this #hibiscus tattoo today. This girl sat like a rock. Please give a follow if you like and as usual tell someone who would like this. Can’t wait to finish up the other two flowers. And I’m not sure why but I had @shaybredimus on my brain while I was colouring this one in. Go check him out as he is one hell of a guy and not a bad artist either! 👊👌😜 #hibiscusflower #hibiscustattoo #backtattoo #back #tattoo #flowertattoo #colourpop #colourtattoo #tattooed #tattoolife #tattooedwoman #tattooedgirl #tattooedgirls #inked #ink #inklife #inkedlifestyle #inkaddict #beautifultattoo #wheretheytatt #tattooer #trevormackaytattoo #trevormackayartist #vancouvertattooshop #vancouvertattooartist #canadiantattooartist #twotidestattoo #tellyourfriends #tattooart ...

I thought it would be good to mention through this quick PSA that if you are looking to start a new project with me I am booking into February and I may have some small spaces open in Jan still though I’m not 100% sure on that as of right now. For your tattoo requests please send us an e-mail here at twotidestattoo@gmail.com and include an idea of what you are looking to have tattooed and any relevant information pertaining to the idea. As well if you can provide a pic of the area to be tattooed and if there is any other tattoo or tattoos around this area please include these in the picture . As well Is this to be in colour? Or Black & Grey and roughly what size it will be in inches, height by width. I am preferring to do my own style of work so please know that I am favouring those that meet with my current style. I am not really looking to do cover up work and I will not be finishing other work by different artists. If I feel I cannot help you with your design we do have other artists at the shop that may be able to take your project on and we will do our best to direct you to one that suits your requested style. I will also be doing some small tattoos in the new year using Tebori. I will have pre-drawn flash designs for this project and they will be priced by the piece as this tends to take a bit longer for me to do. Please let me know if you are interested in procuring one of these and I will make the drawings available to you when they are ready. As always hit that FOLLOW button and tell your friends about us. You can check out the rest of the crew at Two Tides here @variantheartist @carlitostattoo77 @thewoodelf And our apprentice @evanrobichaudtattoo Thank you 🙏 Also I want to say a quick thanks to @a.le.photography for always taking great shots of us when he is here. Go check him out and give him a follow. #vancouvertattooshop #twotidestattoo #booksopen #vancouvertattooartist #trevormackaytattoo #trevormackay #tebori #flash #tattoobooking #wheretheytatt #vancouvertattooartists #vancouverartists ...

This is a piece from 2014 I thought I would share. It was a work in progress and this was the second session out of I believe 3-4 sits. I lost the completed pic accidentally but oh well thought I would show this WIP anyway. #cobra #cobrasnake #cobratattoo #coverupinprogress #oldtattoo #snake #workinprogress #progresspic #tattoo #tattooed #tattoos #tattooedmen #tattooedboy #wheretheytatt #ink #inked #inkedboy #tattoolife #tattoolifestyle #inkedlifestyle #inklife #vancouvertattooartist #vancouvertattooshop #twotidestattoo ...
