SHAMUS IS A TRUE ARTIST IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD. THE WORLD AROUND HIM FASCINATES HIM AND HE CAN FIND INSPIRATION FROM ALMOST ANYTHING, EVEN CURTAINS.
While studying at Dawson College in illustration and design, Shamus had the wonderful opportunity to show his work to Stacey and Vince West of Tatouage West and they instantly fell in love. They offered him an apprenticeship in their studio. He had never considered tattooing as a career but figured it was just another art form to explore and decided to try it. He left the studio after his apprenticeship searching for more opportunities to hone his craft. After quite a bit of soul searching he ended up at MTL Tattoo and his career took off from there. He has now been working full time in the industry for 9 years and loving every minute of it.
