Guen Douglas 






Guen DouglasGuen Douglas is a tattoo artist  She was raised in a creative household by artistic and intelligent parents, it seems that the apple does not fall far from the tree; in fact, creativity and smarts are just two of the many blossoming branches on the “Guen Douglas Tree of Life.”

While her first artistic outlet was ballet dancing, the “ink bug” hit her once she started collecting tattoos on her own skin. Determined to immerse herself in the tattoo lifestyle, she soon took the plunge and found an apprenticeship. From there on out, the industry has been graced with a dazzling talent. Though there are many elements to Guen’s work and style, one that stands out is her unique touches of whimsy. She is able to make each design a little story of its own, adding playful touches and fanciful qualities as she goes.

Her ability to tackle so many types of creative conceptions makes it easy to see why she is such a successful artist and so quickly emerging as an ink slingin’ star.

Though Douglas grew up in both Canada and the United Kingdom, she moved to Rotterdam, Holland in 2009, finding a fantastic new home at 25 To Life Tattoos. Working alongside Nico “Slicknick”, the shop is known for its outstanding work and easygoing atmosphere.

"I am leaving Rotterdam and 25 to Life Tattoos. It has been a decision I certainly have not taken lightly. However don't fret! I'm not going that far away!! I'll be joining the awesome team at Magnum Opus, Brighton, UK starting in mid January. I also plan on visiting the Netherlands often to finish existing work and to hang with my beloved Dutchies.

Unfortunately from now on I can only take on small "one shot" tattoos since I am now booking mid/late-November/ December and leaving Holland Jan 1st.

"If you'd like something little let me know For larger pieces I am now booking at Magnum Opus in Brighon, England. I'm starting mid January so contact for info and bookings :)"
