Monty Ricken

One of Canadas most heavily awarded black and grey tattooers, Monty Ricken is a staple of Alberta tattooing. 

Based from his own studio Monsters Ink, in Medicine Hat, Monty has been showing us all how it's done right, for as long as we can remember. 

He has an undeniable skill for skulls and girls, and can be seen combining talents with his NorTat supported artist wife Leslie to create insanely complex collaboration pieces.
