Welcome to Third Son Tattoo, one of the Okanagan's most experienced tattoo artists, and founding partner of Kelowna's Strong Heart Studios.
This is home to Smilin' Dave Allen's tattoos and art. After 15 years in the industry traveling the world tattooing and exploring everything this craft has to offer, I am happy to call Kelowna home. My travels have exposed me to many different types of tattoo styles and I'm currently focused on modern illustrative interpretations of classic American and Japanese tattoo styles. I've been honoured to work along side some of Canada's best tattooist as guests in their studios and I'm happy to bring this high level of craftsmanship to the Okanagan. If you have interesting, original, complex or even simple ideas for a tattoo, please contact me. I'd love to work with you on your next tattoo. Highly skilled in large scale, colour, black and grey, cover ups, reworks, and even the little stuff!
Come visit our upscale studio. It's large and private atmosphere assures you a higher level of quality, service, and experience.
I'm currently working in Kelowna, British Columbia at Strong Heart Studios. The Okanagan is now my home full time. Please contact me for appointments and consultations by email.
