ADEPT iS an AWARD WINNING tattoo and body piercing studio located in the heart of Halifax, NS. Most recently ADEPT was named BEST TATTOO SHOP in TheCoast’s Best Of Halifax readers choice awards, 2012. In previous years TheCoast readers poll has awarded us Gold and Silver placements for the Best Tattoo Shop and Best Artist categories each year. Amber Thorpe has also been an award winner throughout her career and was voted Halifax’s Favorite Tattoo Artist at the Faces Magazine awards for 2012.
At ADEPT we offer only the best talent with state of the art equipment and ink. Tattooing for the future. All of our work will last and still look great in years to come. We acheive this through thorough training and experience. Every artist here has been trained through apprenticeship (not through trial and error).
Our sterilizer is biologically tested by an outside lab monthly. This ensures that the autoclave is working properly and safely. The results are posted at the front counter. An indicator strip is dated and put into each cycle.
ALL NEEDLES ARE BRAND NEW.
We use barrier control- this means everything we may come in contact with during the tattoo and piercing process is covered. We have a separate sterilization area specifically designed for the least amount of cross contamination possible.
We will gladly guide you through our process because we feel that our clients should know – so don’t be afraid to ask. Our goal is to make this process as safe and comfortable as possible for both us and our clients.
Custom work is our specialty but we also like to do other people’s artwork. If you have your own artwork bring it in and we will give you a price, or give us a call and book a consultation appointment with one of the artists. A consultation appointment is a brainstorm between the artist and the client. This is a chance for the client to give the artist their idea and the artist to figure out what will look good and work with the area it is going in.
For piercings, we take walk-ins. Appointments are only necessary for private or custom piercings.
