Ten Questions: Nick Wasko

By Sang Bleu

Reblogged from: http://sangbleu.com

Based in Vancouver, Nick Wasko quietly tattoos from a private studio off Davie Street, just a few short blocks from the beautiful beaches of English Bay. Stepping into his studio is comparable to walking into a time warp – his collection of tattoo flash, memorabilia, and ephemera permeates all areas of the space. Although working from a private studio (though he is no stranger to street shops), Wasko’s tattoos look right at home alongside the tattoo your grandpa would have selected from the flash on the walls of a tattoo shop fifty years ago. I recently caught up with Wasko to briefly discuss his tattoo practice, the role of the Internet in tattooing, and the history of tattooing in Canada. Wasko was also kind enough to share a few images from his ongoing project documenting old Canadian tattoos. Enjoy!
