Ink by Saga

Full-time illustrator, tattoo artist, DJ, and producer from Canada. If it's fun I like to do it. Or draw it. And turn it into something related to Star Wars.
I feel super lucky to have found a kindred spirit out here on the coast,  my good friend @rainfiretattookatia. So much fun sharing her beautiful shop space with her during my time here, as well as getting the chance to see her work. Check out her work here on IG or stop by the shop if you’re in #Vancouver, some of the most intricate, unique, and beautiful #sacredgeometry and #dotwork I’ve ever seen. #vancouvertattoos #rainfiretattoo #tattooartist #shoplife #geometry #geometrictattoos

Double stoked on this retro colored hand study piece I did yesterday during my time here guesting at #rainfiretattoo…I’ve been a #junglist myself for 15 years, and was honored to tattoo a friend and fellow #illustrator. Thanks so much Ian, and thanks to you and your lady for coming over from the Island!!

Always a pleasure to see older work of mine #Yoda is healed 3 years and the #divinghelmet is from last year with a quick second pass this trip. Both done on my good friend @danascum.

Finally got to take the #longboard out after a dreadful winter in Alberta, was great to sneak in some rides in #summerland and #pentincton and a hike with @nandarachdesigns before heading to work in Van. #bc #ride #lakeokanagan #BClove #mtcartright #liveslowdiewhenever.
British Columbia is the most beautiful place on Earth.
