At the age of 19 he picked up his first Tattoo machine and the rest is history.
Since then, he has graduated with his Masters in Art, worked in several different cities/countries and participated in numerous shows. Robert Witczuk is a very skilled and flexible artist with twenty years of experience. He began his career in Poland and after finishing his degree he moved to Ireland. He has been in and around Ireland since 2007 working in Dublin and surrounding area, where he pays insane attention to every detail and proper hygiene skills are crucial. In September 2013, Robert relocated to Canada and can now be found in Guelph, ON.
“Robert has the rare ability to capture ordinary everyday visions and transform them into intoxicating works of art, which has earned him a reputation as a skilled tattooist” ~Marta 3eciak Foto.
“One Quick look through Robert’s back catalogue of pastel-like portraits, biomech and black & grey – with splashes of colourful surrealism thrown in for good measure – was enough to convince us that here was someone worth putting the liqueur caramels down for” ~Russ Thorne, Skin Deep.
AWARD WINNING ARTIST.

Tattoo Artist / Owner
RJ Poston is a UK born and bred tattoo artist spending most of his early years growing up in Manchester, England and has been tattooing since 2015! A musician by education RJ began his career in the tattoo industry at the age of 18 as a body piercer back home in ol’ Britannia! In his early 20s he made the move to Germany where he undertook his tattoo apprenticeship, whilst working as a full time piercer, and from that point his career was born.
RJ emigrated to Guelph from Chorley, England with his family mere weeks before the “great apocalypse of 2020”, weathered that storm and came out the other side in a glorious ray of sheer panic! RJ is an all rounder style wise, from fineline to new school and everything in between, however has a preference for black and grey realism!
Although he has a funny accent he’s British not Australian 🙃
RJ is literally his first name
Enjoys Costco trips immensely
Hello, my name is Garrett. I'm a newer tattoo artist in the industry. I've been tattooing for just over a year now, and enjoy trying different styles. I love color, and tattoo wise I'd say illustrative and new school are two of my favorites. I also enjoy painting, drawing, and sculpting.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my 12-year-old daughter. Whether that be outdoors playing basketball or just enjoying the day by the water. Among others, shopping is at the bottom of that list, hahaha.
I look forward to working with you all and thank you for your time!
The ninja behind the scenes
I first met Rob and Ange in 2015. Working together everyday we quickly developed not only an amazing work relationship, but truly became family. I have always loved the tattoo industry, however was not blessed with any sort of artistic ability, so I found my place as the ninja behind the scenes. I love getting to meet so many amazing people, hear their stories and help make their entire tattoo process as smooth as possible. I was honoured to be apart of making Polka & Volt come to life and look forward to speaking with all of you soon!
Mike started his tattoo journey at the young age of 16. He spent a couple of years in a small town shop where he started his career before relocating to Kitchener to continue to practice his art. He grew a lot in that shop as he was working with plenty of great artists. At this time he is happy to say he is now at Polka & Volt where he continues to grow and master his practice. He loves the team he works with and wouldn't have it any other way.
Mike is a black and grey artist who really enjoys doing realism pieces.
Name: Jasteen Aiza Pasagdan
Birthday: September 18 1994
Jasteen is a Filipino artist from the Philippines who has been living and working in Guelph, Ontario and immigrated to Canada in 2015.
Jasteen is a tattoo artist with great attention to detail with 4 years of experience in the design and application of tattooing. She specializes in minimalist, dot work, geometric and Polynesian Tribal tattoos.
A little fun fact as everyone wants to know what is up with her instagram name @buttattoo. Buttattoo came from her nickname Bham-Bham (bum) sounds like "butt" so then butt + tattoo was born.
Tattooing is my passion. Seeing a client light up after receiving a quality tattoo is one of the best parts of my day. Working beside our team of professional and skilled artists is very empowering and provides me with enormous gratification!
At Polka & Volt, I have the privilege to further my knowledge and skill of being a tattoo artist everyday. I am friendly, welcoming and caring. My clients comfort and well being is always very important to me along with them getting precise, distinct and high quality artwork. I have completed my bloodborn pathogens training which means you can always depend on my workspace being clean. I specialize in fine-line tattoos but am always looking to explore more styles and work with more colour!
Outside of tattooing, I am also a musician and model. The all girl band I sing in is Miss Conduct and we activity preform all over Southern Ontario and occasionally travel beyond. I mostly do pinup modelling and you can view my content online or potentially at your next local car show!
