Hello! My name is Chris and this is my story. I started drawing and creating art as soon as I could hold a pencil, I would say I was about 2-3 years old. Skip ahead 15 years and I’m starting my tattoo apprenticeship. Skip ahead another 15 years and now I own a little tattoo studio called No Love Lost Tattoos and Piercing in Bowmanville, where I spend most of my time creating custom tattoos. My art style has developed into a multi-faceted style that is based around traditional tattooing but encompasses many different styles that produce my own unique brand of art. Basically, I like to do everything! I like to push myself out of my comfort zone to learn and grow, as I feel like that mindset has continuously helped increase my ability and keeps me passionate about tattooing. I am known for my colour work and large, complex designs. I love themes of nature, spirituality, Japanese art, comic book art and horror culture. As well, I love the ritual of tattooing! From the conception of the idea, through the pain and the struggle of the procedure, to the feeling of accomplishment and pride you get when it’s all done. If you have an open mind and a courageous soul, I want to meet you and create art for you that tells YOUR story!

Erin Neufeld - Shop Manager
I love tea, cats, crystals and of course tattoos! I got my first one as soon as I could sign for it myself at 18 and have been collecting ever since. I have worked in customer service/retail since my very first job at 15 and was SUPER happy to join the team here at No Love Lost Tattoos & Piercings in June of 2016 as shop manager/gatekeeper. Look for me on your right when you come by the shop!

Curtis Hircock - Piercer
If you had asked me years ago if I would have considered piercing as a career, I probably wouldn't even have an answer for you. It was something that I kind of jumped into. My good friend Kyle Tait at Motor City Tattoos offered me a 6 month apprenticeship under him, and I jumped at the opportunity. The No Love Lost crew is a very professional team, and I'm extremely excited to be apart of this family. Piercing is something therapeutic to me, and I only hold myself to the highest of standards as far as my quality of work, sanitation, and as well as customer satisfaction. Come by and let me stab holes into you!

EMILY SMITH - Artist
I have been passionate about art and all things creative since I was young and that passion has lead me to the tattooing industry. I am drawn to the neo-traditional style of tattooing but also enjoy other styles, such as realism and illustrative work. I enjoy subjects related to anime/manga, video games, plants/flowers, animals, portraiture work...etc. Let me know what inspires you and I will endeavor to bring your vision to life and create a piece you truly love. Thanks for reading and I look forward to meeting you!

cally Barrett - Artist
I’ve been artistic for my entire life with a focus on bright and colourful acrylic paintings and graphite drawings. My career path for the last few years has been anything but artistic as I focused on a career which I thought was generally accepted and supported by society and my family. After spending a few years working as an Engineering Technologist, I took some time to reflect on my true passion and asked myself, when I retire in the next 30 years, will I be proud of what I’ve done with my life?
The answer was no. Although I was proud of my career, I was not passionate about it, I had this extreme urge to pursue a creative career path and I knew I had to combine that with my passion for tattoos! I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to complete my apprenticeship with Chris and am continuously growing as an artist with my tattoo family at No Love Lost Tattoos and Piercings. My preferred styles and specialities are realism, geometric, ornamental, neo traditional and floral tattoos.

Hi There — My name is Quinn.
I have always been interested in visual arts and have known from a young age that it’s what I wanted to pursue as a career. I studied Fine Arts at Durham College and received my Bachelor of Arts at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. My interests include pop culture, video games, and anime - but I’m always interested in trying something new!
I’m grateful for the opportunity to push my creative boundaries and elevate myself to become the best artist I can be at No Love Lost. I’m looking forward to not only connecting with my community but also improving my art so I can make your vision come to life.

Abby Siri - Apprentice
My journey to becoming an artist started a little differently. As a child, I was very active and though I loved art, my big hobby was cheerleading. That changed when I was around 12. My brother introduced me to the game Borderlands. I really came to appreciate how diverse artistry can be, and it inspired me to create art that makes me feel good!
I worked hard to improve my skills, and eventually studied Animation at Durham College. I got to try many different ways of creating art; things like 3D modelling, graphic design and digital art. Through all this I realized I was just passionate about… drawing! That led me to the idea of tattooing as a career.
I spent the next several years developing my skills in illustrative art. I drew inspiration from all the things I’m keen on such as video games, reading, and animation.
Having the opportunity to apprentice under Chris is an exciting next step in my artistic journey! I can't wait to learn more from the No Love Lost team and flourish as an artist and human!
