Crimson Empire Tattoo

About Us

Founded when two best friends decided they wanted to open a tattoo shop. Curt and Mitchell both from Edmonton, Alberta Canada conceptualized a tattoo studio that focused on clients, artists, high quality tattooing, and tattoo art.

Crimson Empire Tattoo was established in 2007.

What started out as two buddies talking became a business plan focusing on their goals artistically and as a customer service oriented business. The focus was on doing great tattoos and treating every client with respect and gratitude.

Crimson Empire quickly turned into a local favorite. Things changed and what started out with loyal north side Edmonton clients quickly spread through out the city, then the province of Alberta and now with clients and visiting artists coming from across the region and even from other countries.

Things started to change around the north side shop in 2013. A shop originally built to house seven artists was now crammed and home to thirteen talented tattoo artists. Curt and Mitchell decided it was time to start another chapter. Enter the Black Gold Era.

Mid 2014 is when Black Gold Tattoo Co opened its doors in the southern most section of the city - South Edmonton Common. We quickly transitioned into our new digs.

Once 2015 hit we opened our second Crimson Empire Tattoo location in the neighborhood of Summerside.

Then 2017 came around we said good-bye to our original location located in the Kingsway area and moved our crew south. Things were tight to say the least, but we made some changes and we have been loving our new shop.
