Matt never followed through, never got back to me with a design - he may be a great artist, but I ended up going somewhere else!

I've gotten both my tattoos here and was very pleased with the work on both. One was done by Matthew Mattison who does beautiful greyscale work, and the other was by Matt. Both have held up well and gotten lots of compliments.

This is a great place to get your first tattoo - second, third, etc.. I was referred to Tiger Lily from a friend who had his first tattoo done there and I would go back in a heartbeat! The artists are very talented with their unique artwork. Prices are in line with other shops. I highly recommend Amy. She is fantastic!

I have had 2 tattoos done at tiger lily, both done by Matthew M. A cross on my rib cage and a dove on my ankle. I will never go to another artist, or another shop. They are hilarious, professional, and they do amazing work. Its about the artist, and there ability to interpret what you see into an amazing tattoo. I highly recommend it.
I have a profile on check out my ink under the name, prettylittlebrokengirl for some reason they wont let me post the link so you'll have to do the work :). where you can see my tattoos.
if you want one, go here.

I had been wanting to have a certain tatoo done for several years, and finally pulled the trigger. I walked in, a total virgin, and met with Amy to ask her advice/ideas on the design. She professionally answered my questions, and suggested changes to the design to ensure the end result was something that I would like, and would last! I felt very comfortable the whole time. The atmosphere is easy going and non-intimidating, even for a novice. I made an appointment for the next day, to have it done. When I returned, Amy presented 3 designs - one an exact replica of the original; one modified version of the original, based on our discussion from the day before; and one that was her own modification. Her design was by far the best, and it was a no brainer to go with that one. The end result was phenomenal; better than I had hoped for. Needless to say, I would recomend Amy to anyone.

This shop is awesome. I finally found an artist who will work with me and fix all my crappy tattoos, and create some rad new ones. Mike V is an awesome artist who truly cares about how your tattoos turn out. He is genuinely interested in you and your art of choice, and I had an overall awesome experience. The other artists seemed really nice as well. Very professional, sterile environment, and AMAZING artwork. I would highly recommend them!!

I went in Saturday with a girlfriend to get my first tattoo. I already had the design, but was super nervous. Mike made us feel comfortable and at ease. The pain wasn't anything like I thought it would be and it has come out just beautiful.
All the Artists are super friendly and knowledgeable and incredibly talented. I appreciated that they are very meticulous about sterilization and making sure that everything is clean. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to get inked.!

After hearing thier name a couple times and reading the reviews I went in to check it out. I was very pleased with how everyone treated me. Going in as a first timer, I had ZERO idea on what to expect, and they guided me along without any pressure or judgement. After looking through everyone's books I picked Amy's style as the one that most closely matched what I was looking for. We talked for as long as I needed to explain my idea, and then she helped me explore options, alternatives, examples, etc until we had the concept just right. She took some time to do some sketches for me and away we went! I was very happy with how well she prepped me for the experience, and how comfortable she made me feel. The process was quick, easy, clean, and virtually painless (for me). She gave me great aftercare instructions and has been available for follow up questions since. I will definitely go back to see her again.

Amy Cole at Tiger Lily is awesome. I have gotten 3 tattoos from her, and am very happy with all of them. One is words, one is from the children's book Harold and the Purple Crayon, and one is a uterus. I have had many compliments on how well-done the uterus is. I have always felt extremely comfortable with Amy as a person, as an artist, and with the shop overall (sanitation, atmosphere). Amy was also very patient, clear, open, and made me feel quite comfortable. I highly recommend her.

I've always wanted to get a tattoo and with my birthday's coming up I was recommended from my friends to check out the Tiger Lilly Tattoo shop. When I first enter the shop everyone's so friendly and welcoming, I felt so comfortable with the staffs. I brought some of my designs in and with Mike V as my tattoo artist, he directed me of what design I should get and where I should put it. The second days I went back and Mike shown me the design that he drew for me and it looks sick! and hella tight on my right arm too. As a first timmer getting a tattoo, I felt so comfortable and the pain and cost was not what I expected. It was painless and affordable.

I love art, these artists at tiger lily do fine work. I also like not having to make an appointment, I think you should call to if you can, to help them schedule the day but they will fit in the stray impulsive customer if they can. I recommend them.

Mike V. is awesome. I've gone in w/out any idea of what I wanted and come out stoked. He did peacock feathers on my forearm over a year ago and the color and detail are (still)perfect, I get compliments all the time! I'm not local in pdx anymore but he's always made time for me when I'm in town and has some really creative ideas. Definitely recommend Tiger Lilly!

I got a tattoo back in June from Igor. I brought in a design a friend had drawn for me. Igor helped me change a few things I didn't like and even suggested a change I really loved. He was very nice (as was everyone I spoke to there) and my tattoo looks great. I'm definitely going back to Tiger Lilly for any more tattoos while I'm living in Portland.

I got my first tattoo from Mike V, the day after Obama got elected. I went to atleast ten other tattoo shops before I stopped at Tiger Lily. The shop is OK and the music was OPB talk radio that sucked. But when I saw Mike V's portiflio I was stoked because I was looking for great new traditional and thats exactly what it was. I highly recommend him, he doesnt tax you on the price, the parking is easy, and this Shop was featured in Tattoo magazine 1/1/2009 and thats awesome to show off to your buddys with tattoos from artists who haven't been featured in the top tattoo magazine.

Getting my first tattoo was huge...the tattoo as well as the experience. I needed something to memorialize my friend who had passed away and it had to be something I'd be proud to wear for life. (NOTE: I've avoided tattoos for all of my 39 years, even when gently prodded by the very best friend who passed.) After a ton of research I decided to walk into Tigerlily. I was greeted by Igor in a very clean and sterile setting that also had a fun vibe. Igor and another artist who was in the middle of a session helped me with ideas. They wisely advised me to pick something my buddy loved that could be incorporated into a tribute without making me sad every time I looked in the mirror. I settled on the FN 5.7 gun with his intials in the grip and smoke from the chamber spelling out EOW. When I was ready, Igor was out of the country but I felt a great connection with Amy and her work. I didn't want a cartoon look for obvious reasons. The day of the tat I was nervous as hell but she reassured me and explained everything from what I'd feel to the importance of breathing. She had a gentle and deft hand. Her shading and creative technique with the smoke letters blew me away. It took a little over 3 hours but I never felt overwhelmed or bored. The time passed quickly and I had fun cracking jokes with her. I've received tons of compliments on it, especially from those who have been inked more than once. It healed quickly, never scabbed and only peeled a tiny bit. If I ever decide to get another, it will be at Tigerlily.

For my first tattoo experience it was mostly positive. The place was very clean and Igor worked with the design that my partner and I presented and helped to customize it. I didn't notice until a week later that part of the design was a little uneven. It was a Celtic knot so the real appeal is it's symmetry. It's very slight and not noticeable unless I point it out, but it is there. I know it doesn't detract from it's overall beauty, but because of this I wouldn't ever return to him for any future work or recommend him to anyone. An experienced artist will ocassionally make mistakes and yes, it was slight but also very permanent. I did go back to him and point it out. He noticed it also and told me it isn't something that he can fix. There are so many amazing artists in this city so make sure you shop around and find the right match for you.

I had an incredible experience at Tiger Lilly for my first tattoo. Igor was absolutely incredible! I got a lotus flower on my hip and not only did Igor place it in perfect "flow" with the contours of my body, it also covered a surgical scar.

Everyone who has seen it has told me that it looks more like a painting than a tattoo. There's no cheesy cartoonish tattoo feel to it; it literally looks like a work of art. Igor took my concept and made it better than I could ever have imagined.

After reading tons of positive reviews about Tiger Lilly, I decided to stop by there after work today and talk to one of the artists. I'd been thinking about my 2nd tattoo for awhile, but was nervous because it's latin script on my ribcage and i was worried about moving during the process and ruining the artwork. When I walked in, the artist behind the counter was SUPER friendly and instantly made me feel comfortable. I asked his name and he said "mike v." i told him i definitely wanted him to do my tattoo because of the great things other reviewers had said about him. because of a cancellation, he said he could do it that evening since it was small. i showed him the fonts i was deciding between and he offered to hand draw it to make it more personal. even in pencil, his scriptwork was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! he made sure i was comfortable while we were setting up and gave me some good suggestions on how to hold still. it took all of 10 minutes, but he talked and joked with me during the whole process. i'm sure in comparison to most of the tattoos he does mine was really little and simple, but he made me feel like it was important. the finished product is amazing and i couldn't be happier with it... and mike happily answered my millions of questions about aftercare.

i STRONGLY recommend mike v. at tiger lilly, but i looked through all the portfolios and any of the artists there would be great. the shop is very clean and has a great atmosphere. plus, it's open late!

I just got a tattoo from Mike V today... He was wonderful. I had to call about 3 different times the past 2 weeks to get my appointment. I didn't mind a bit - It wasn't a hassle, it was just because it was a busy time for them and several people were taking vacation, so no one was really positive who would be around on the day I needed. The point of my mentioning that is because EVERY single person I spoke to was so friendly, that I was even more excited to go there for my new tattoo. When I spoke with Mike and made my appointment, he was great - I liked him right away, and he was able to scoot my sister and I right in even on short notice. This tattoo was pretty simple, some writing on the inside of my wrist, but it is beautiful. His fine lines of the script are gorgeous. I absolutely loved him - he was knowledgable, professional and personable. While there, I looked through all of the artists portfolios, and I would have been pleased to have any of them ink me... You could definitely see their different styles, but they were all incredible. I can't wait to go back in for my next one...

This is my first tattoo in Portland and i'm glad i chose to go to Tiger Lily's. Mike V is kick a**!! The artists here actually gives a hoot about what you put on your flesh, and will give you suggestions on what will or will not look good. I highly recommend this shop not only because they're clean, professional, and have awesome artists, but also because they're fun to work with :-)

I had my first tattoo experience at Tiger Lilly a few weeks ago and I made an appointment with Igor. He seemed very confident in his work and rightfully so! He did an amazing job and is an incredible artist. I am very satisfied with the tattoo that I got and when I get another one I will definitely go to Igor. Tiger Lilly has a fun, laidback, and comftorable feel to it and all the artists seemed like really cool creative people.

Mike V did my first tattoo at Tiger Lilly a few weeks ago. I brought in a picture which was somewhat of a vague starting point, but he listened to what I had in mind and the sketch he came up with was beautiful. He had a good vision and provided suggestions throughout the entire process. The colors are perfect and the lines are perfect... I've gotten what seems like a billion compliments on my tattoo. I highly recommend!

Since this was my first tattoo I was very nervous about finding someone, I checked online and asked around and the name Tiger Lilly kept coming up...Even after hearing all the good things I just kept thinking something would go wrong yeah alittle paranoid I was being. I went in just to check things out and brought my drawning just in case...I was amazed and how nice everyone was even the customers were friendly..made my appointment with Igor after talking with him for a bit about this was my first...he was very understanding and confident in his work, I felt alittle more relieved. Went in on a Monday after work scared as hell I felt like a big baby all worried for nothing! Igor did an amazing tattoo beyond my expections I was proud to show everyone the art he did on my back...this was alittle over a week ago and its already healed nicely!

Since this was my first tattoo I was very nervous about finding someone, I checked online and asked around and the name Tiger Lilly kept coming up...Even after hearing all the good things I just kept thinking something would go wrong yeah alittle paranoid I was being. I went in just to check things out and brought my drawning just in case...I was amazed and how nice everyone was even the customers were friendly..made my appointment with Igor after talking with him for a bit about this was my first...he was very understanding and confident in his work, I felt alittle more relieved. Went in on a Monday after work scared as hell I felt like a big baby all worried for nothing! Igor did an amazing tattoo beyond my expections I was proud to show everyone the art he did on my back...this was alittle over a week ago and its already healed nicely! Thank you Igor for everything you are truly the best! I would highly recommended Igor at Tiger Lilly...Amazing work, Friendly and just an over all cool place!

Pros: Everything!

Cons: Nothing!

I went to Tigerlily for my first tatoo with my father. They did such a good job that I came back two years later. Mat did my tattoo, and he was really knowlegable, and nice to talk to. This Tattoo parlor came highly recommended, and they have lived up to the praise. I have been to two different tattoo artists at tigetlily, and they were excellent. I have idea for my next tattoo and I will be going back to Tigerlily.

i walked in tigerlilly and was immediately greeted by ben. i showed him the design i was looking to get, which already was a little intricate and specific. he drew it up really quickly and nicely. the three hour process was not bad at all because ben was such a great guy to talk to and just kept me relaxed. hes just such a great person! but beyond that, the end product was beyond belief. he put his own twist on the design i gave him, with shading and all, and it looks unreal. i dont think i could be happier with my tattoo. once i can save up enough, im booking my next appointment with him. i wouldnt go to anyone else.

Pros: Friendly, Amazingly talented (all the artists have impressive portfolios), cool atmosphere

Cons: Cash only, but thats not too big of a deal if you really want a tattoo

i first went to see the folks at Tigerlily in 2005... I went and described my idea and they all agreed that Mod was the man for the job. I made an appointment to meet him, and was certain that he was the one who could bring my vision to life. I had several components of the tattoo that I wanted incorporated, and although the task seemed daunting, Mod took it all in stride. He assured me, "No problem," and I left feeling very happy. Mod drew up a rad design for me, and then I flaked. Life got hard, I had no money, no time, and no way to get my tattoo done. By the time I went back to see Mod in mid-2006, he'd thrown the design out, thinking that I was never coming back in. When I re-appeared on his doorstep, so to speak, he was anything but rude. Kind, understanding, gracious, and enthusiastic about starting the project again, he offered to draw up a new plan for the elaborate tattoo I wanted. We varied the design quite a bit from the original complicated idea, and although I supplied Mod with ideas and pictures of elements I wanted, he formed a beautiful, cohesive design that was better than the first! Needless to say, I am pleased beyond words with the final product. I was so happy to get the tattoo completed (after 5 or 6 sittings), but sad that my "Friday Tattoo Dates," with Mod came to a close. I'm already planning to incorporate some additional items (and cover up the 10 year old Kanji) with more of Mod's art. The guys upstairs at Tigerlily were always friendly, informative, kind, entertaining, and damn talented to boot. I was frequently nosy about tattoos, how they became artists, history, and the like, and they all answered with authority, humor, and well-founded knowledge.

Matthew, Mod & Matt Reed are a class act and you'd be a fool to go anywhere but Tigerlily for your custom work. These guys are true artists, and the art Mod created for me is beyond my wildest expectation.

I'm from Anvik, Alaska and I went to Oregon for a conference. It was the first time that I visited Oregon and I've been wanting to get a tattoo for a while so I decided to get one while I was there. Ben did my tattoo and It turned out great for my first tattoo. He drew it up really fast on my leg, he didn't even use anything. It didn't take very long so that was also nice. So yeah, I recommend this place. It's relaxing and the people were nice.

I've gotton a few of my tattoos at Tiger Lilly. After looking over the portfolios, I chose Mike V to do my work. His portfolio looked amazing, very clean, beautiful work. Everybody in the shop seemed cool, and friendly. A very inviting place! I will be going back to Mike V. for more tattoos in the future.

I recently made my first trip out to Portland to visit a friend. Of course, I had to commemorate my big trip across the US by getting a tattoo. I researched several tattoo shops in the area, and I had decided on Tigerlily. When I got there, the shop was very clean and the artists were beyond friendly. I discussed my design and scheduled a time to come back. My artist was going to be Amy.

Amy was AWESOME! She is very friendly, very artistic and she has a gentle hand. She is the first female to tattoo me, and I loved her to bits! She talked and joked around the whole time and made it a fun experience. She does killer work and she is a perfectionist... which to me, is very important when getting a tattoo.

I can't wait to go back to Portland to visit her again and get more work done by her. If you are looking for a place in Portland to get a tattoo, you must go check out Tigerlily! And be sure to ask for Amy... tell her the girl with the cute bats sent you! :)

Matt Reed has given me the most bitchin tattoos on the planet. You wouldn't believe all of the compliments that I get.He fixed a bad tattoo that my girlfriend had (done by a bozo several years ago)and made it awesome. Very talented in the different styles. Everyone there is super nice and talented as well. A very unique place.

This was my first tattoo, after thinking about it for years, and the whole staff at Tiger Lilly, and especially Matthew, the artist who worked with me, made it an easy, comfortable, fun, and interesting experience. Matthew is just incredible. I gave him a very complicated design one which he spent a lot of time. I changed my mind the day before the tattoo and he had to scrap an AMAZING tracing and spend on hour on the new design. Astonishingly, he didn't charge for any of his design time. He knew I was apprehensive of pain and discomfort and he gently helped me understand and then experience the tattoo -- without ever being condescending. His good humor and genuine manner are always at the surface. The best part, of course, is that he is a gifted and experienced artist. The tattoo turned out even better than I expected and now I am psyched, in a big way, to get more work done.

I visited several places in PDX and spoke to quite a few people. Matthew's portfolio, which has amazing detail and shadow work, really captured me. His character, professionalism, and pride in his work made this a perfect experience. I couldn't be happier.

I felt immediately at home in Tiger Lilly. I had talked to several Portland artists about a couple of pieces I wanted but felt hesitant with every one of them...until I talked to Mike V. at Tiger Lilly. He was personable and his portfolio looked amazing. I showed him what I was wanting and he came up with the idea of fusing the two together, which hadn't even occured to me. What he drew out was fantastic and the finished piece itself is beautiful. I couldn't be more pleased. I will most certainly seek him out for future pieces.
In addition to the above, the entire staff was very friendly and helpful. I had a chance to peruse all of their portfolios and I must say that each one was impressive. Nice, clean environment as well. If you're in the market for a tattoo, you can't go wrong here.

I got my first tattoo last week. I was very nervous and I made an appointment with Mike. He was the best. The staff is friendly and the shop is clean. I would go back if I wanted to get inked again!

Went to get my first tattoo, a memorial piece at Tigerlilly. i looked at several portfolios before deciding to talk to Ben. not only was he open to my design (custom, odd), but he was able to incorporate the two ideas into one. It turned out better than i could have ever hoped for. My friend was so impressed, that he had Ben work on a cover-up as soon as we were finished. Worth every penny. The next time I'm in PDX, i'm going back to see Ben!

Shannon gave me some sick Norse rune art on my shin. People constantly stop and ask me about it. When I brought him the image, he not only acted interested in the concept but he enhanced it and recommended the best placement on my lower leg. I couldn't freak more about how cool it looks! Fine lines, deep black, great appreciation for what I wanted him to create. I'll go back to Shannon and the other great people at Tiger Lilly ever time I want ink!

After 15 years of thinking about it, I finally got my first tattoo. I went to Amy at Tigar Lilly Tattoo (because of the prior reviews I read here). Amy is just a cool chic - period. She also was good to explain everything to me as she went along. She seems to be very focused when she's tattooing. During the procedure she asked me several times if it hurt. Being a tough guy I said, "no" (it did hurt more than I thought however). She would say, "well I can make it hurt more - you need to earn your tattoo."

It has been about two months since I got my first tattoo. IT LOOKS GREAT!!!! Perfect lines, perfect colors, perfect placement, Amy rocks! I am heading in there today to show her and thank her.

It's a great place!

I have bounced around through several different shops looking for comfortable shop with talented artists. I had met Amy at another tattoo parlor four years ago, and heard that she moved to tiger lily. The tattoos she had done on me four years ago still had clean line and beautiful shading so when it came time to do a tribute to my dying dog (pawprint) I knew I wanted Amy to do it. I was really impressed with shop and other artists at Tiger Lily. Since then several of my friends have started pieces with other artists and they are all coming out beautifully. If you're looking for a clean shop with talented and knowledgable staff, Tiger Lily is where you should go.

Tigerlilly is easily one of the best tattoo parlors in portland. Their friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere makes for a remarkable tattoo experience. The artists are extremely talented and considerate. I had an upper arm sleve done by Mathew and could not have been happier.
