Sam was born in Calgary, and always knew he wanted to be an artist from a young age. After studying art and inspired by pop-culture, he began tattooing as a means to meet and interact with new people. The owner of Lucky Strike, Sam has been tattooing for 22 years and enjoys tattooing anything that challenges and inspires him. Other than tattooing, he enjoys painting and spending time with his dogs and family.
