Strange World is the best tattoo shop in Calgary. Every experience I've had there has been 10/10. Strange World goes above and beyond to make sure you are walking out with pieces that are better than you ever expected. George at the front desk is so personable and caring and incredible (best piercer in town, too!). The artists there are cream of the crop. You're sure to have some laughs and good conversation while you're in there as well. Everything is exceptionally clean.

Great tattoo shop. I've gotten two tattoos done by Jess and both of them have turned out perfectly! She's amazing with black and grey, and I will definitely see her for any future tattoos. The shop is always clean and the people there are very helpful when booking appointments or answering any questions.
