Tory Sutherland-Dadds


What have been some of the highlights of your tattooing career so far?
There have been so many! The first things that spring to mind would have to be winning Best Female Artist and Best Tattooed Female at an Ink n Iron, as well as tattooing wedding bands onto my dear friends at their wedding.

What does it mean to you to be working out of Sally Mustang?
Sally Mustang is a place of safety. We build each other up and grow together. I am mentoring a few very talented individuals, and watching them learn is, and has been very rewarding. Sally Mustang is chilled and inclusive, and everyone who spends time in the store has a great time.

What style of tattoo do you enjoy creating the most and why?
I enjoy most styles of tattooing. I’m a firm believer in great technique, so value clean lines, smooth shades, and solid colouring. When a tattoo artist can do these well, they can be more versatile and play with different styles.
I would have to say though, that at the moment, I am loving Fineline. When I started, the clumsy coils and fat needles I had access to were not capable of producing the fine lines and detail we can do now, so I’m enjoying that a lot.
