Established in Nov. 2018, Ultra Instinct is a brand new, upscale tattoo studio located in the heart of Downtown Langley. The space has a modern art studio aesthetic with a touch of Japanese influences, while balancing a zen and tranquil environment for our clients. With a focus on our environmental impact and advocacy against animal cruelty, we offer vegan-friendly inks and endeavour to use eco-friendly, cruelty-free products throughout the studio.
Dedicated to providing our clients with high-quality, custom tattoo work, our skilled and well-rounded artist specializes in all areas of tattooing including: portraits & realism, black & grey or saturated bold colour tattoos, fine-line & script work, neo-traditional, elaborate decorative pieces such as ornate jewellery designs, mandalas and floral work, as well as cover-ups.
HEAD TATTOO ARTIST
Sean has been around art and tattoos his entire life; naturally talented and having spent the majority of his days drawing on quite literally everything, tattooing quickly became an enduring passion in his life.
Sean began his career in the tattoo industry a decade ago - starting his apprenticeship in 2009 and working in several tattoo shops in the Lower Mainland, developing his skills and building his portfolio, preparing him to succeed as the head artist and owner of his own studio.
Never limiting himself, Sean has developed and specialized his skills in all styles of tattooing, allowing him to provide a diverse range of custom tattoo work for his clients. You name it - Sean can tattoo it!
A true nerd at heart, Sean is usually playing video games or watching anime in his downtime. He is also a car enthusiast and can otherwise be found out in the garage working on one of his forever changing vehicles.
COSMETIC TATTOO ARTIST
Shan is our ‘Jill of all trades’. After studying business administration in college, she began working in the property management and real estate industries. While she excelled in the competitive business world, Shan always felt that her true passion lied within a more creative career field.
Having an entrepreneurial mindset and seeing Sean's progression as a tattoo artist, she knew that if they fused their skills together they’d be destined for greatness - and so began their journey to Ultra Instinct.
Forever pushing to do more and wanting to bring her own artistic skills into the studio, Shan decided to take her knowledge of tattooing further and became certified to provide eyebrow tattooing a.k.a microblading.
When she’s not working, Shan’s usually watching classic movies with her cats, baking vegan treats or saving bugs & animals somewhere. She's also a published model and an active animal rights advocate.
(our little grasshopper)
Katie is the newest and most colourful addition to our Ultra Instinct family. Fresh out of high school, this little nugget stumbled into the studio and immediately blew us away with her artwork and infectious bubbly personality.
If the Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy My Little Ponies had a baby, it would be Katie. With her innocence, kind heart and quirky weirdness - Katie is a ball of joy that every person, and animal, can't help but love being around.
Although she is still fresh to the world of tattooing, Katie is already proving that she's got the right talent and devotion to excel in the industry - there's no doubt that this girl is well on her way to becoming a great tattoo artist!
