ABOUT

HIGH TIDE TATTOO PARLOUR, THUNDER BAY, ON

High Tide was founded by Mike Gresham (Micro) and Sonya Lacroix in 2011 in Thunder Bay, ON Canada. Our vision was to provide a safe, clean and professional tattoo shop for clients to receive high quality custom tattoo artwork in a comfortable, welcoming environment.

We proudly dropped anchor at 206 Park Avenue (across from the Casino) in the downtown core of Port Arthur. Currently we have 3 full-time tattoo artists at the shop, Mike (Micro) Gresham, Amy McKerracher and Ryan Pooman, and 2 apprentices, Hanna Koester and Sonya Lacroix.

Alongside tattoos, we also provide a variety of creative services, and sell a selection of hardcore, punk and metal band merch unique to Thunder Bay, jewellery, art prints, and more.

Come by and check out the shop!

COVID UPDATE: WE HAVE NOW OFFICIALLY RE-OPENED! (BY APPOINTMENT ONLY) VISIT OUR CONTACT PAGE FOR DETAILS ON HOW TO BOOK!
