In Vernon BC Since 2002
OPEN 11:00am - 6:00pm
Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell:
Hark! now I hear them — Ding-dong, bell.
DUSTIN TREVOR KROETSCH
Our Founder, Friend, And Mentor. The Late Great Dustin BONES Kroetsch was a Humble and influential Powerhouse in modern Canadian tattooing. After growing up in Kelowna, Dustin lived abroad in the late 90s and early 2000's, spending many years working in iconic Canadian tattoo institutions such as Calgary's Smilin' Buddha, and the Lower Mainand's Dutchman Tattoo. Dustin returned to the Okanagan in 2002 and opened FIVE FATHOMS TATTOO in Vernon BC. In late 2013, Dustin "bones" was taken from us far too soon when he succumbed to his lengthy battle with depression. Dustin will be missed by many friends and family in the Okanagan and across the entire world of tattooing. He was an Kind and Selfless Individual who's legacy will live on through those he impacted, inspired, and permanently marked in the tattoo community.
