Congratulations to our apprentice Faye and her first month of tattooing. She appreciates all of the interest and will be responding to all of the requests as soon as she can. We are pleased to announce that we have found a new receptionist who will be joining the team this month. See below designs available for tattooing in April/May. We will contact applicants on Tuesday, April 4th. Katia will resume monthly designs in June so she can get caught up with current projects throughout April/May.

Next month marks Rainfire Tattoo's 5 year anniversary at this location! Thanks for your support over the years and happy spring.

Fair Play Ground

Light of heart and heart of light,
softens lines of wrong or right
Feather weight negates hate,
and swirling steps of love creates.

The Forest Through the Trees

Like directions, seasons, and elements, 
we grow and change. 
With nurture and nature, 
our web blooms beauty. 

*This design has been transposed onto a model and has not been tattooed*



With boldness, strength and grounded structure, 
we expand our consciousness,
and gain stability in both dark and light.

Byzantine-inspired architecture takes flight on sails of thought. Travelling with the mind, forging pathways that float and turrets that lead into awareness.  ❤ Katia
Travel with the moon tattoo for Alyssa. "With the moon's illumination and shadow, travel to infinite places occurs in both darkness and the light." ❤ Katia
Thanks for flying from Saskatchewan for another session on your sleeve about "Time".
"Time is an illusion we created to try and measure the rate of change of the Present. It's always NOW. But it's an ever changing NOW. In a effort to cope with the change, we have invented time. It's a handy mental device that helps us deal with the higher order derivatives of the rate of change .Although the illusionary nature of time is the deep truth in this matter, it's not particularly practical. To be totally in harmony with this truth, you'd need to wear a watch that always said "now". But you'd be late for a lot of meetings.... " Leigh Brasington ❤ Katia
“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it's a feather bed.” 
― Terence McKenna
Within the hidden code, the construction of our universe, connecting all which converges into a singularity. This tattoo is for a very special person in my life, one of my best friends  ❤ Katia
Rising, moving, and stacking, toadstools represent immortality and eccentricity, and in this design, an essence of virtual reality. ❤ Katia
Royal Presence tattoo for the lovely Alaina, weaving patterns that keep us centered as beauty blooms. ❤ Katia

Stepping into infinity - An exploration of perpetual motion and perspective for this physics student.  ❤ Katia
When we recognise the nature of the infinite universe, there's magic in chaos and comfort in change.❤ Katia
This was a sketch from last night that I posted and a friend, Lori, messaged me that she was interested in the tattoo. I then checked my email and my client today had to reschedule, so I was able to get Lori in right away! I love how things magically fall into place. Thanks for being spontaneous Lori... This tattoo is about following your dreams. Total time - 2 hrs 💖 Katia

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh, "said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?" "What's for breakfast? said Pooh. "What do you say Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today? said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said." A.A. Milne

Thank you dear Christina - for your strength, your passion, your friendship, and your overall awesomeness! 💛

“The most important reason for going from one place to another is to see what's in between.”

A simple purple celebration of a rich and authentic life led by a content heart. Thank you beautiful Cindy - you were a wonderful ray of sunshine on my cold rainy day. 
"This is the problem with dealing with someone who is actually a good listener. They don't jump in on your sentences, saving you from actually finishing them, or talk over you, allowing what you do manage to get out to be lost or altered in transit. Instead, they wait, so you have to keep going." Sarah Dessen 

To listen with curiosity. To hear beyond words. To refrain from judgment or advice. To create a safe space for others to open up and share their stories. Thank you Rupi - the authenticity of that conversation was a gift. ❤
