What makes Bowen Island Tattoo Shop an experience on it's own?

"I've always believed getting a tattoo should be about the entire experience, from the moment you start heading to the shop that day right until you are walking out my front door, it should be a day you remember forever, a day you tell your friends about."- Kelly Miller

Bowen Island is a short ferry ride away from West Vancouver, B.C. Being so close yet so far gives the feeling of getting away from the hussle and bussle, without the entire day spent travelling. Make a day of it with delicious food,check out the local chocolate shop, or enjoy the beaches and island trails.

But best of all head home with the most memorable souvenir of all,

your new tattoo.



Meet the Artist

Kelly Miller, born and raised on Bowen Island, has always found inspiration from the surrounding wildlife (that includes the locals).

Having always been an artist Kelly has enjoyed learning to work with new mediums. When introduced to the world of tattooing by Betty B in 2012, she knew she had found her passion. After her apprenticeship with Betty B had finished, Kelly took on the tattoo business started by her mentor and made it her own.

Bowen Island Tattoo Shop was established November 2015, where Kelly has continued to work hard at giving each person the attention and care needed to create their very own tattoo.

Each client leaves with a memory that will last a lifetime.

Kelly enjoys a new pair of converse as much as she loves a fresh pad of paper and a sharpened pencil.

On a day off on Bowen Island Kelly enjoys walking her dog River or hula hooping to sweet beats in the sun. If it's raining Kelly and River binge watch Netflix and eat everything.
