Elizabeth Davis Owner/Artist

Liz has been in the tattoo industry for 19 years. As much as she tried to avoid making art for a living, she couldn’t deny her passion, and took an apprenticeship with a local legend. With 12 years tattooing experience, Liz loves tattooing mostly neotraditional, traditional and illustrative styles, but finds herself being most excited by anything organic and with lots of texture and details. In her spare time, Liz can be found firing up pizza in her wood fired oven, kissing her babies and making all kinds of wooden wonders.

Kari Gillis 


Kari has been slinging ink  for 9 years now. She grew up in Elliot Lake, but somehow found herself in the Ottawa Valley and now she is not allowed to leave us! She began her tattoo journey doing every job in the shop and was able to land her dream job as a tattooer. Kari enjoys black and grey work, lots of colours, pointillism and traditional styles and nails it every time. On her days off, Kari will most likely be restoring old cars, or can be found collecting eggs and mothering her chickens Hennifer Lopez and Hendrick Lamar.

Vanessa Hawkins Artist 

Vanessa, our native valley girl, has settled into life at the shop quite well over the last year. After throwing in the towel as a machinist, she decided to pursue a career in the arts, and found herself permanently leaving her mark on people. She has been in the game for over 3 years now, and is a force to be reckoned with. She loves watercolour tattoos, anything animals and insects and vibrant colours always spark joy.  In her spare time, Vanessa enjoys adventures with her dogs Chippy and Lily, making cheese, rugs and shoes, and recites lyrics to the latest Cardi B songs.

Genevieve Soulard 


Genny the ginger has been a tattoo wizard for over 12 years now.  Everything she touches turns to beautiful composition, crisp lines, and precision pointilism. She began her journey at art school in Ottawa, and then landed a  tattoo apprenticeship in Petawawa. She quickly made quite a name for herself in town,  then spread her wings and flew the coop back to Ottawa, where she  rubbed  elbows with some of Ottawa's finest. In the end she came back to the Bombshells crew, and we were complete again. Genny  loves video games, rocks black and grey styles of tattooing  and loves cats.
