We pride ourselves in keeping our shop clean and sterilized for our clients well-being and our own. We use sterile single use needles, inks, and supplies. We use barriers and bag covers on all our equipment as well to prevent cross contamination. Our tubes and grips are sterilized in our shop in an autoclave that is spore tested monthly here in Saskatoon to assure quality sterilization. We are enrolled in the "Infection Control Quality Assurance Program" and follow Health Canada guidelines for safe body art.

Trevor Gusikoski - Tattoo Apprentice

Trevor Gusikoski started his apprenticeship at Red Tide Tattoo in January of 2016 and has been excelling and surpassing what we have asked of him in respect to his art, finishing his 200 art assignments and more. 

You may know him as "The Other Guy".  He has been painting and selling pop culture and custom figurines for the past 5 years.  His previous painting has really lended itself to creating his own unique style of drawing that will make for great tattoos.

Careers

*Artist Positions Have Been Filled

Red Tide Tattoo Company in Saskatoon is expanding and looking for a talented Tattoo Artist and Apprentice to join our team full time.

The right artist will have shop experience, a minimum of 2 years tattooing and must tattoo at the level of standards the other Red Tide Artists work at. We are looking for someone with a strong portfolio and capable to take on different styles of art. If you a bare minimum artist you will not fit in. Having a clientele is preferred but we will help you build one if you do not.

We run an efficient, well-kept, clean, open concept shop on one of Saskatoon’s busiest streets. We also operate a state of the art laser tattoo removal service at our shop separate from tattoo hours of operation.  We are a tight knit tattoo family that works very well together.  Personal matters are expected to be left at home and not interfere with work or affect the others at work.
