Aoi Artistry


My name’s Stephen Moir and I’m a Tattooer residing in Nova Scotia.

This site, along with the moniker ‘Aoi Artistry’ is the umbrella under which I execute most of my creative endeavors.

When not tattooing I spend a lot of my time exploring music, 3D modelling, painting and writing. If you follow me you’ll see my work from these other avenues popup from time to time.

If you’re interested in collaborating or hiring a freelance artist for various creative projects, get in touch!


Tattoo Workspace

The tattooing process is currently undergone in a private space in Dartmouth NS. The exact location of the space is available upon the approval of an appointment.

**Because of Covid-19 there are extra precautions required and aside from myself, only one person (the client) is available in this space at a time.

Manual Tattooing aka ‘Tebori’

Tebori is the traditional hand-poke method of tattooing native to Japan.
This is a process that I enjoy immensely and would love to practice more.

When done correctly, tebori actually hurts less and heals brighter than machine work! The only downside is that it takes much longer.

If you’re interested in receiving a tattoo by manual methods, send me an email directly and we can discuss the specifics of imagery, price, position, and anything else you may be curious about.
