Marc

An artist in Ottawa for more than 20 years, Marc has worked 12 years at Planet Ink along side some talented artists and now resides at INKsession as a loved member of our artistic staff. Developing a style of his own, Marc has traveled across Canada working with various people and broadening an understanding of what clients look for in an artist who will also understand their tattoo choice. Have it be black and gray, or colour blast, Marc will work with you developing a fresh new idea, or an impressive cover-up.

Alden

My apprenticeship started in 2002 in Indiana where my mentor who later became my best friend, apprenticed me the old school way. Hired on as the body piercer, my days were spent dealing with customers, answering phones, drawing and watching. I watched my mentor tattoo and learned the craft I would one day develop a passion for. All these years later, I firmly believe that my learning will never end and I will continue to grow every day. As they say, "Do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life". Here in my new home of Ottawa, I spend time with my beautiful family and continue to offer solid tattoos at reasonable prices at INKsession. Making my clients happy is always my main goal.

Zach

Born and raised in the capital of Canada into a family of artists, my dad and brothers have been in the industry for 20+ years so I’ve been around tattoo shops since I was about 2 years old. At the age of 16 I started working in a shop doing mostly cleaning and sterilization, learning sanitary process and about how to not cross contaminate. At the age of 18 I began my actual tattoo apprenticeship and from there have strived to be the best artist I can possibly be. I have been tattooing for about 5 years now and have a strong traditional background with a bit of a new school twist. So if you’re looking for someone who strives for great art and traditional designs I’m your guy!
