Toronto & Vancouver is inspired. We’re right at the start of the playoff season. The Leafs are the best we’ve seen them in years and the Raptors are dominating the Eastern Conference. So despite the lingering winter weather, city pride is at an all-time high.
To celebrate, we’re taking a look at some of the coolest Downtown Toronto tattoos. We’ve always given this city a lot of credit as being one of the best places in the world to get inked. So today we’re looking at some of our favourite Toronto & Vancouver themed and inspired tattoos.
