  • OUR BOOK - WE NEED YOUR PICS!
WE ARE PUTTING TOGETHER OUR FIRST BOOK FOR PUBLICATION!  "TATT's PROFOUND" needs your stories and of course, YOUR TATTOO(S)!  If you have a unique Tattoo that WE did for you, we want to publish your story.  
These days nearly everyone (or just about everyone) has a Tattoo - but some have a truly unique Tattoo and a very PROFOUND story that goes right along with it.  In this business, we hear some utterly amazing stories behind the Tattoos and as well what may have inspired someone to finally put it permanently on their bodies.  It's time to hear those stories.  
So... TELL us WHY your Tattoo is so profound!  We want to tell that story to the largest audience around - the world.  

If you are interested in having your Tattoo published in this AMAZING CREATION OF A BOOK - email Sandi at profound@dragoninktattoos.ca  (and/or if interested in purchasing a copy, please press RSVP on your right under Upcoming Events) - for more details and as soon as possible.  We have put a deadline in place for the end of August, so email soon!   See our INFO here:  CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS    Posted 28May17
