THE LEWIS FAMILY TATTOO COMPANY
by appointment only
We've MOVED! As of September 2021 - Lewis Family Tattoo Company has moved spaces, we are at the SAME address on 2235A Dundas St Wet, but now on the 2nd floor. Located just above the Roncesvalles Village in Toronto's west end, just a few blocks south of TTC Dundas West Station. LFTC is owned and operated by veteran tattoo artist Derek Lewis and his wife Christine.
LFTC is a fully disposable studio which means needles and tubes are single use only. We have pigment options for those who are vegan or have specific allergies and we are the proud home of Better Butter Care, a limited ingredient body butter used for before, during and after tattooing that aids in the healing process.
We proudly display our green BodySafe Pass and licence from the City of Toronto Public Health.
As part of our efforts to keep our clients and staff as safe as possible - all staff at LFTC have been fully vaccinated and boostered. We maintain a high level of cleanliness and we continue with the standard Covid-19 safety requirements and screening questions until such a time as they are no longer needed.
Excelling in coverups and fix ups. With over 30 yrs of tattooing experience.
Derek is appointment only and his books are always open.
All bodies, all styles welcomed.
Dom Keigher graduated from Etobicoke School of the Arts knowing he wanted to become a tattoo artist under an apprenticeship with Derek Lewis at Lewis Family Tattoo Company. Dom has been working alongside the other artists at LFTC and under Derek’s guidance for more than 4 years now. Having completed his apprenticeship, Dom has been tattooing clients for the last year, increasing his portfolio of work and bringing his own unique style of art to LFTC. His work is versatile and varies from fine line work script to blackwork to traditional to colourful - either custom or prepared flash pieces.
Sam started her apprenticeship under the skillful guidance of Derek in 2019. Specializing in mandalas and blackwork, Sam's designs focus on dotwork shading, lines and symmetry. If you're looking for an artist to fulfill your fine line, geometric, dotwork dreams, Sam is your gal!
Julia has a versatile capability she's been honing since 2016. whether it's script, colour, or black and grey, Julia is your girl! She most enjoys pieces in her personal style; a mix between illustrative and neo traditional which often include witchy subjects such as botanicals, crystals, animals, and lady heads. Julia especially loves creating a special and comfortable experience for her clients. You'll be greeted by a pleasant, natural scent from one of her many soy wax candles and her proud display of crystals and tarot cards.
Alan (aka Sparki) started his apprenticeship with Derek back in 2017 at LFTC. After obtaining a background 3d Modeling and Photoshop, he developed an affinity for retro style Manga art as well as Japanese pop art after spending 6 years living in and around Tokyo. Shortly after returning to Toronto he began his pursuit into tattooing. Currently Alan seeks to blend his fondness for Manga art with the more contemporary stylings of modern, neo-traditional tattoos
Although not an artist at our studio, Christine is our studio manager.
She's usually the one you speak with either over the phone or through our email. Christine keeps everything running smoothly.
Her attention to the small details keep us on track.
And she makes a mean cup of tea.
We're happy to be back open, up and running! Until further notice, we will be by appointment only - email the shop to book in or DM your artist on Insta to book in (except for Derek-email only)
