Stay Awhile Tattoo

I work at Stay Awhile Tattoo, one of several art spaces at NVRLND. Nvrlnd Arts Foundation is a non-profit art collective and a wonderful group of folks who provide space for artists of all kinds to grow individually and as a community. The studio is located in the Ramsay area of Mohkinstsis, or Calgary, Alberta. Stay Awhile Tattoo will have retail hours and be open to the public soon, but for now you will need an appointment to come see us! We are just getting going :) Follow us at on instagram.

Stay Awhile Tattoo was founded in the spring of 2022 by myself and my studio mates Madison Hope (@_nomoresaddays on IG), Lauren (@whimsyearth on IG) and Julia (@plantladyj on IG). It is co-owned and operated by Madison and I. We moved from a tiny studio next door, Studio 416 (pictured below! updated photos to come soon). Most artists in our studio work primarily as handpoke tattooers. We sell art, wearable goods, and lots of other cute things in the space.

We are currently working with more guest artists - visit if you're interested in participating as a guest!

How To Get Here

Please note that I have moved studios!


Stay Awhile Tattoo is located at 1048 21 Ave SE (NVRLND yyc!). We are one of many studio spaces in the large black building that faces 21 Ave. The studio building is locked to the public - you’ll need an appointment and to be let in by one of our artists to access the space.

When you arrive for your appointment, please ring the doorbell marked ‘Stay Awhile Tattoo’ and wait a few minutes for a response! I’ll come down and get you.


Our building can be accessed by walking, biking, public transit or car. It is located on Calgary Transit bus routes 24 and 302, and route 17 stops a couple of blocks away. Free street parking can be found on 21 Avenue in front of the building, and clients with appointments may park in the parking lot directly west of our building.



Our studio must be accessed by climbing a set of stairs, so is unfortunately not wheelchair acccessible. If you have mobility concerns and cannot access our studio, please contact me and I will do my best to accommodate you and come up with a solution! For example, we may have the option of doing a tattoo appointment at another shop with wheelchair access.
