Hi, I'm George Lewis originally from Windham Centre, Ontario. I have been practicing tattooing and piercing for over 38 years. I originally studied the art of Body Modification back in 1975 with a pioneer in the Body Modification by the name of Doug Malloy (Richard Simonton) who passed away in 1979. I studied with Fakir Musafar as well. I didn't really get into doing piercings right away until I had been Tattooing for 5 years. We then brought the piercing into the business as an added feature, because it was becoming very popular with the young croud. For the first 10 years piercing climbed in popularity in leaps and bounds and was quite an addition to our business. I have been asked to do talk shows for example, Morning Magazine in Kitchener with host Betty Thomson, Also I was on The Johnny WalterShow in 1986, they filmed in my studio while I Tattooed their cameraman. I have been asked to do many lectures in schools and Medical Establishments. We have had newspaper articles written about us, we have won the Peoples Choice Awards for the last 3 Years in a row, making ours the most sought after Studio in our area. We are recommended by some of the doctors in our area, and the Medical centers here, send everyone to us to have their jewellery removed for surgery. We are the highest recommended Studio in the KW area. I had trained extensively in the Piercing & the Human Anatomy in the late 70's in order to give my clients the best possible service . I have now Mastered the Piercing and have obtained the professional training that is required, and have the knowledge and hands on experience to be fully qualified to pierce any body part that you desire, even if it has never been done before. I have refered to myself many times as a Master Piercer, which in all reality there is no such term, but I feel that with 37 years of experience and I have mastered all piercing that exist and some that were recently discovered, that I deserve the right to say I am a Master at what I do. By studying the Human Anatomy I now know the underlying dangers of blood vessels and muscles that most self-made piercers are not aware of. This day and age there are more and more non-professional so called Piercers & Tattooist, all self taught, that you really have to do some research before you end up with a botch job. There is more to this profession than meets the eye, and in most cases, if your visiting the wrong Studio, which is more likely than not, it is easier to get a bad piercing or tattoo than a good one. The world has become saturated with tattoo and piercing studios and it has become harder to find the good ones. Because the new comers don't know yet what it takes to run a fully functional and sterile studio, so they put their prices way down below the realistic prices of the veterans, and we all know that somehow money clouds our judgment and causes us to go were it's cheaper. Most unsuspecting victims don't realize that these guys have to be cutting corners somewhere to keep it cheap and I would hate to think that the corners they cut are on sterilization. We at Tattoo Art & More, only charge what we need to get to make a living, maintain a sterile condition at all times, and use only the best equipment and jewellery available, to continue to maintain these conditions. I have been a Piercing Instructor for the last 10 years and offer hands on training here at my Studio for a reasonable fee. And I will match my skills against any other Piercer any time. It's up to you to make sure you know what your doing, and whose hands you are placing your life in! Make no mistake, in spite of what you think, all piercers and tattooists are not equal or trained properly, it's just the blind leading the blind. This is the reason why I have studied this profession so extensively, so that I can maintain the quality of work our clients are used to. Ask around and do some research before making a mistake, make the intelligent choice and go where your friends and others recommend, to Tattoo Art, don't let money cloud your judgment. There are studios that charge over $100 for a pierce, and that is robbery, there is absolutly no reason to pay such prices, so don't be fooled by their reasons why they are so expensive, it is all made up to suck you in. I would advise you to be intelligent and don't go to those places.
Your body and your life, has to be worth more than that!
What we do that no other Studio does, is offer free guidence and products to clear up keloid bumps that may occur and free ajustment jewellery (if there is a problem with swelling) until you are healed. We also give everyone a lollypop after their piercing, unless it was a mouth piercing and a free ankle bracelet. Make the intelligent choice and try our services, you won't regret it.
