Welcome to November, and thank you for reading our Rainfire newsletter! We really appreciate your support. <3
This past month Tedd Hucks came to our studio. In one week, many new faces left Rainfire with big smiles and their design by Tedd. Also in October, Faye flew to Toronto to visit family and ink her cousins with some original Faye designs. She continues to look for a studio in Toronto so that she may return to guest spot and stretch her work further across Canada. When she returns she will have a few openings for custom designs in December, and as of January 1st her rate will increase to $130/hr.
Ashley and Felix are accepting custom designs. Please contact them directly.
Katia's schedule is busier than ever. She and Ashley Apok have been working on a collaborative design that will be available in our next newsletter. Katia's 10 Year Anniversary of Tattooing was commemorated with a photoshoot of her past clients, hosted by Rainfire studio manager and photographer Volante. Catch a glimpse of these on next month's newsletter.
Halloween was a blast! But before we dawned our disguises, Rainfire got a mini make-over. A new door sign!! (See above photo). Though the ride to install was rocky, we finally added that golden flare to our silver surface.
We hope your Hallows Eve was spoOooOoooOooky!
Thanks again for sticking with us, we will see you again next month.

October Tattoos by Katia Somerville
Soaring strength to this beautiful lady as she endures challenges and embraces change while loving herself along the way. 
The web of consciousness and unconsciousness and all points in between... are joined in places within our dreams.
Nothing is what one thinks it is. The circus has no limits. There are no certainties.
First tattoo on Friday, and he trusted me with the design, wearing a blindfold and not knowing what it was until the end. It was an honour to tattoo this empathic soul with a special design that represents connection, and building knowledge of self through communication in ways other than words. Thanks Maks- hope to see you again! 
This tattoo represents embracing the stillness within- letting the ripples settle and trusting emotions as they come. This beautiful client from Bellingham and I discussed being aware and accepting of your strengths and weaknesses. I am happy to provide this adornment of transformation as you move through, Angela. See you again when you get tattooed by my apprentice, Faye. I will try to stop by since it's on a weekend:)
Magestic Dignity. Proud elegance while moving forward through difficult times. 
October Tattoos by Faye Cantara
So inspired by Kumiyo, who is starting the 5th decade of her life with all kinds of changes and rebirth.
Thanks for journeying over from the island to receive 'Virgo Season' from my September design sheet, Shari <3 
Wholeness : every now and then I finish a tattoo while the studio manager Volante is around, and she takes beautiful photos of my tattoos in motion! I love the second shot of Lorraine!!!
Had fun updating Wencee's existing tattoo!
Coda from the last newsletter for Erin - really fun placement between two other awesome tattoos. 
A sweet and simple lotus for Sam, inspired by designs from my Rainfire newsletter contributions. 
October Tattoos by Ashley Apok
Memorial butterfly inspired by a piece of art my late homie Alex gave to his partner before he passed earlier this year. Thank you for coming from Sweden to get tattooed Malin!
Quick touch up for Kristina with this floral mandala thigh piece we started at my guest spot in June. I'll be tattooing in Vancouver at Rainfire Tattoo for the Winter months.
Dylan selected my design 'Spiritual Circuitry' from my October design offering. 
What does the phrase 'cognitive sovereignty' bring up for you? For me, cognitive sovrignty is the freedom do what I will with my mind and consciousness, without the influence of outside forces. For others sovereignty may mean the freedom to live in the way they choose- with who they choose. It's the freedom to be the artist of your life- without the constraints of consensus reality. My wish is that these words inspire you to be a little bit more free today.
Matching ornamental hexagon adornments for Emily. Thank you for the amazing conversations and vibes, as always! And thank you for the Maté.
Kristen selected this design 'Crysanthimum Ornament' from my October Design Offerings. I'm really stoked with how it turned out! Thanks for looking.
Completed on the Summer Solstice, this Phoenix chest piece represents being in alignment with truth and personal power. Thank you Keith, may you experience continued growth and expansion in your life. Some fresh, some healed. Boom Shiva!
