SWALLOW Artist Spotlight: Derek Turcotte


There’s no shortage of artistic talent contributing to the SWALLOW ecosystem, but this week, we’re focusing on the one and only Derek Turcotte, shop owner & resident tattoo artist at Electric Grizzly Tattoo in Canmore, Alberta, Canada.

His bright & unique style with inspiration drawn from all things anime & cartoon can’t be easily missed.


Derek is beyond pumped to push tattoos into the digital realm and is a highly valuable part of the SWALLOW tattoo industry advisory board.


Here’s what Derek had to say about himself:


I’ve been tattooing for 17 years as a shop owner and artist at Electric Grizzly Tattoo, published in several articles, book interviews, and step-by-step tutorials; I enjoy traveling internationally and tattooing in different places. I live with my family in the Rocky Mountains of Canada, love to snowboard, play hockey and golf, and enjoy camping, water sports, playing bud games, reading comics & watching anime! Other hobbies include painting, airbrushing, creating art in any form, trying to be a lifelong student, and learning!


We’re beyond excited to work with Derek on his SWALLOW NFTs and looking forward to seeing his tattoos integrated into various web3 games and metaverses.
