Tattooer Greg Woodrow was born in Oshawa and has been living around this area all of his life. His father worked at General Motors and instilled a pride of Oshawa in Greg. As Greg grew older, he knew he wanted to become a tattooer and pursued that until he finally landed an apprenticeship. Now ten years into the industry, Greg has been tattooing at Taunton Tattoo Company alone for 9 years this February. While capable of many styles, many people seek Greg out for his traditional or cover-up tattoos and he has developed a reputation of creating bold, long-lasting tattoos.
