Vancouver Ink: Lydia DeCarllo’s tattoos of the Art Gallery, Hotel Vancouver and Chinatown


Vancouver Ink exposes you (and your friends’) Vancouver-themed tattoos! We have an obvious fascination with pride-of-place and how it manifests, and getting a tattoo showing your pride and love for something is perhaps the ultimate commitment.

Today we’re sharing Lydia DeCarllo’s VERY Vancouver pieces on her arm that she sent in.

Hello, I had a friend tell me you were doing pieces on Vancouver tattoos. Here is mine; it is the Hotel Vancouver at the top, underneath that the Vancouver Art Gallery fountain, below that is our gates to our China town. You can not see the inside but there is Gastown and the coaster from Playland as well.
