Profile Last Updated: April 28, 2009
Funhouse has been a tattoo institution since 1998. Currently located at Cambie Street, this large shop is clean and bright. With the motto “There’s nothing we can’t tattoo,” you can bet they’ll be able to meet your needs. And customers agree—Funhouse is consistently named by those in the know as one of Vancouver’s premier tattoo shops. Their skills are well-known, as is their friendly, professional service. Despite what reality shows may depict, egos and attitude are at a minimum here.
A Commitment to the Craft
Owner Art Godoy has more than two decades of experience as a tattoo artist. He takes his job seriously and hires the same kinds of people to work with him. All of Funhouse’s staff are internationally known and award-winning artists with years of experience. Godoy himself is an author of books on tattooing and holds two international patents on tattoo-machine technology. Because of Funhouse’s popularity, appointments must nearly always be made in advance. Depending on the artist and the time of year, expect to wait one week or up to three months. In a hurry? Check in with the shop shortly after opening hours to check for cancelations.
Feel the Buzz
Funhouse artists can create any tattoo: Japanese, tribal, or traditional, in black and grey or colour. They will work with customers to develop custom designs or adapt any images you bring in. Got an unusual or challenging tattoo idea? There are no artistic limits at Funhouse. The artists take pride in tackling the tattoos that others might say can’t be done. This is the place for elaborate portraits, tiny detail work, or major cover-up jobs.
