There really is no more personal form of artistic expression than a tattoo, and that suits the creative team at Chilliwack’s Scarecrow Ink just fine.
Because while the talented artists each have their own areas of speciality and years of experience, they also understand the finished tattoo must reflect the customer’s vision.
“We have a truly artistic environment and we love sharing that,” explains manager Jesse Longbear. “If you have an image you like or something you’ve drawn, bring it in and we’ll custom design it for you. We’re here to make your dreams a reality.”
As the industry has evolved over the years, so have the people who visit Scarecrow Ink, which has been creating beautiful body art for the Chilliwack community for more than a decade.
“We have everyone from five-year-olds coming to get their ears pierced to grandmothers who are excited for their first tattoo,” says Longbear, who has been piercing for 20 years.
In addition to the artists behind every tattoo or piercing, Scarecrow Ink is about their extended family of clients.
“The thing that makes this shop the place it is, is the people who come in,” Longbear reflects. “We have a very tight-knit family here and we treat every experience like something special, because it is.”
Draw your love for mom
And that’s the sentiment behind Scarecrow Ink’s very special Mother’s Day contest.
“We wanted to do something for the mothers out there,” Longbear says.
Children ages four and older are invited to submit their mom-inspired drawings to firstname.lastname@example.org between April 22 and May 3.
The Scarecrow Ink team will choose their top 5, which will be posted to both Scarecrow Ink’s Facebook page and The Progress’s Facebook page, where readers can vote for their favourites from May 4 to 9.
Be sure to vote by 5 p.m. May 9 and watch for the winner to be announced May 10 – just in time for Mother’s Day!
