out of town guests

You know the old saying, “Distance makes the heart grow fonder?” I have out-of-town guests from across BC and the nation who understand getting their dream tattoo and Nanoblading shouldn’t be limited by where they live.

If you’re thinking of visiting Lovely Canvas from out of town, I’ve compiled a list of resources to help you make the most out of your visit
