Growing up in Dog Patch, a small town in Ontario, Steve has traveled across Canada and abroad perfecting his skill. With a sketch pad of doodles and a hunger for knowledge, Steve MacKinnon "SMACK"  immersed himself deep within the tattoo world becoming the artist he is today. With over 13 years of experience he attributes his unique style to the creative and talented minds he has met throughout his travels. His style ranges from Fine Art, Portraiture, Horror, Black and Grey, Cover-ups, Fantasy to Surrealism. It’s difficult to find a concept he can’t tackle. Steve's additional skill sets display a variety of mediums; airbrushing, sculpture and metal work are among his favourites. With an innate attention to detail he has achieved the perfect balance between beauty and horror.
