Choosing a Tattoo Artist:

Our artists have a variety of styles, talents and artistic backgrounds. Please check out our portfolios and select an artist who's work compliments the tattoo you are looking to get. Or, feel free to call us (503-236-7878) and discuss your idea a bit more and we can help steer you toward the right artist for the project.

Custom tattoos often require that we spend time preparing a drawing prior to your tattoo appointment. Because of this, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with the artist you will be working with to get started.

Consultations:

Consultations are in-person meetings where you discuss your tattoo idea, placement on the body, costs, etc. with your artist. It's also a good way to meet the tattooist and make sure that they will be the right person for you to work with. Consultations generally take between 15-30 minutes and we do not charge for this service.

For your consultation, please bring PRINT OUTS (no pictures on your cell phone, please) of any visual references or images you are attracted to and help you explain your vision for the piece you want to get. A little homework up front on your part really helps us draw the tattoo of your dreams!

Your artist will collect a deposit from you, at your consultation, to reserve your tattoo appointment and drawing time. The deposit is good for 6 months and goes toward the cost of the tattoo. The deposit will be forfeited if you decide not to get tattooed, do not show up for your appointment, or if you change your mind mid-process and your new idea requires new artwork and additional drawing time. For larger pieces requiring more time and research, an actual drawing fee may be required in addition to a deposit to hold your appointment.

On the Day of Your Tattoo:

Eat a meal or hearty snack before your tattoo and avoid aspirin and excesses of alcohol and caffeine. For larger tattoos and/or all day sittings, it's a good idea to bring some food to fuel your self throughout the day. There are also plenty of eateries in the area if you prefer.

We do not mind if you bring a friend or visitor, however we do have limited space and cannot guarantee that they will be able to sit with you during the duration of your tattoo. Please check in with your artist about bringing guests if you have further questions.

Artist Portfolios:
