Spring is on it's way soon and let me be the first to welcome you! I first would like to thank all of our clients that have supported us throughout the winter!  With all of your support Tribal Expression has had a record winter yet again allowing us to put it back into growth, growth of the business for our clients.  This has allowed us to expand our Tribal Made jewelry brand to bring new designs to market and to bring new and better products into Tribal Expression every day.  With the expansion of Tribal Made, this has allowed us to reduce of our titanium prices, some to near stainless prices, this also allows us to do manufacture incentive sales, control quality, etc.

I look forward to working with all of our new, existing and always our long time clients for this new and exciting spring, summer and fall season.  Be sure to be on the lookout for all the new and interesting stuff on the horizon.

Just as the seasons change, our hours at Tribal change with them!!  We will be open everyday from 11-7pm until further notice! Coming into the spring we will be changing the hours back to extended weekends so keep your eyes on our social media or visit the website for information!


Did you know that we started our own jewelry brand "Tribal Made"


This allows Tribal Expression to receive some of the Best Stock, Best Prices, Unique and Custom Styles

A large percentage of our body jewelry is hand-made in-shop. This way we can guarantee that all of our jewelry is made of the highest quality implant-grade metals.
We are super pleased to announce: Due to our clients and due to the shops success, Tribal's jewelry department has gone through a major growth spurt allowing us to start our brand / Label "Tribal Made".
This has now allowed us to grow, we now have 1. Goldsmithing; 2. Off site manufacturing facilities in which we have interests in - 1. Custom CNC facility in Calgary, 1.Titanium CNC facility overseas.
We have also expanded our gold casting capabilities to offer more unique varieties in: Rose Gold; Yellow Gold; and, White Gold to our Tribal clients.
Our brand now is slowly going to be launched via tribalmade.ca and dermalanchor.com, we also have venders and dealers waiting for the launch - or new items to sell to other reputable piercing studios.


Our “Tribal Made” brand mainly focuses on Grade23 Ti-6Al-4V Titanium with ASTMF136 mill certification. This has filled our display cases with new titanium and gold products and our stock will continue to change all the time.

In return, Tribal has lowered its prices on almost all "Tribal Made" body jewelry, this now reduces the cost of our basic jewelry and lowered the cost of titanium prices closer to stainless prices. (call the shop if you have questions)

As a body jewelry manufacturer, we're also able to offer a much wider range of jewelry styles.  If there's something you'd like and we don't have it in-store, just ask, we're happy to do custom orders, and for no extra cost.  We even manufacture custom gold jewelry for "Fergi" from the Black Eyed Peas.

Tribal Expression currently has two (2) factory's for custom body jewelry manufacturing.

Custom body jewelry and gold body jewelry manufacturing has always been an integral part of Tribal Expression, in fact, previous to Tribal Expression's existence, Keith Kennedy worked at To The Point Body Piercing in Calgary.

At that time Keith started a small jewelry company and became lucky enough to be taught some goldsmithing training and information by Scott Walker of Calgary.  Keith then sold body jewelry and perfected his craft, all while piercing.

When Keith left To The Point and started Tribal Expression, he took his jewelry shop and his employees, so high quality jewelry could be offered in-house and pierced.

All piercings at Tribal Expression are done and/or overseen by either Keith Kennedy, Mike Grant, Dee.

Tribal Expression and Tiki Town Sterilization Practices


Tribal Expression's Sterilization Room

With our new sterilization room, which is visible directly from our waiting area, you can watch your procedures getting induvidually sterilized in our state of the art sterile processing area!!!!

Keith has been widely regarded as a professional in advanced piercings such as surface piercings, multiple piercings with one piece of jewelry, and genital piercings. Keith has helped pioneer the "Dermal Anchor" movement, and is currently one of the only manufacturers in the world making implant grade polymer dermal anchors.

Tribal Expression has been doing dermal anchors so long that we pretty much own the name like, dermalanchor.com, dermalanchor.net, dermalanchor.org, dermalanchor.biz., dermalanchor.ca, and more. Since the launch of "Tribal Made" Keith Kennedy has been very instrumental in using his company to create and design new and different dermalanchor designs, to increase hold and length of stay. With new designs to be launched by mid October. These new designs we'll be available on tribalmade.ca dermalanchor.com


At Tribal Expression we use the 2 Statim 5000 and Statim & 2000 Autoclaves, some of the best and fastest autoclave systems in the world. This allows us to guarantee that the tools and jewelry for each piercing will be individually sterilized for each client. This means the tools come right out of the autoclave and are immediately used, thus eliminating any risk of cross contamination. Any of our supplies that need to be stored in the room are stored under germicidal UV lights so that they can be stored in the safest possible conditions.

Here at Tribal Expression every piercing is done using a brand new single-use disposable needle for all piercings. All needles are disposed of properly after the piercing and will never be re-used.

Tribal Expression also owns Tiki Town Tattoo (right next door), Tiki Town has three (3) full time tattoo artists. We feel that between the 2 shops we are able to cover all forms of body modification! Check it out @ www.tikitowntattoo.com Keep it in the family!

Tiki Town Custom Tattoo upholds the sterilization standards in the tattoo industry, if you're looking for Calgary tattoo shops or custom Calgary tattoo shops be sure to check out Tiki Town Tattoo.
