Custom Tattoo Design

Mary-Jo was honored to have been commissioned for this Father-Daughter tattoo. Both were tattooed with it as a birthday gift from the Daughter to her Father. It symbolizes their love, connection, and years of fond memories from camping together.

commission testimonials

  • "Mary-Jo is such a talent.  She was an absolute pleasure to work with and the piece she created, aptly titled "Frequency", is a perfect addition to a music lovers home.

  • I love your work! I have purchased 4 pieces now, one for myself and the others as gifts to loved ones. Needless to say, they have all been very well received! I appreciate your kindness and patience when I commissioned a work but didn’t really know what I wanted. You were able to walk me through the process and I ended up with a fabulous addition to my collection!"

  • Mary-Jo is a very talented artist… a dream to work with.  I gave her a very weird request for a commission and she knocked it out of the park.  The depth and colouring in the work is a conversation piece in itself

    Greg Alvas
  • I commissioned Mary-Jo due to her  demonstrated dedication and passion to her craft . More importantly,  I trusted her ability to interpret my vision and create a unique work of art with it.  I am using this piece as a focal point in my home and absolutely love that I can tell the story of why this piece was brought to life. It will be something I hand down to my children because it is so timeless and telling, not just my story, but of resilience and survival in the face of desperation.
