Lindsay April is the fine line tattoo specialist at Golden Iron Tattoo which is located in the heart of Downtown Toronto. Like most fine line artists, she possesses the steady hand required to create such fine lines and the eye for subtlety required for minimalist works. Lindsay mostly tattoos flower posies in both micro tattoos and slightly larger pieces, but she also tattoos the occasional quirky tattoo, such as the dotwork Ruffles Potato Chips piece she once tattooed on a client.

Overall, Lindsay's work has a good balance of fine lines, single needle detailings, dotwork, and subtlety every tattoo artist aiming for minimalist pieces should work on. She keeps it less distinct and more refined as she goes through the rigorous process of developing a tattoo style.
