Caitlynn Abdow is a great artsist. She has a feminine touch that shows in her work where it's needed. Very friendly and quick. No doubt about her quality of work.

Caitlynn from Skin City has been doing my tattoos for the past three years, with the most recent addition of a wonderful dragon piece being done yesterday. Her drawing taken from my suggestions was beyond anything I could have imagined

Had the best experience at Skin City with Joe. Everything was comfortable, clean, just perfect. My new piece I just got is my favorite from the line work to the shading the detail. I wouldn't have ever recommended an artist from experience

I had Joe do my tattoo. It was my first one and he was very pleasant. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is extremely friendly.
Joe even did a free touch up for me, I made an appointment for it to be fixed in February but he

I've had 3 tattoos done here, and all of them turned out to be perfect, and I never needed to get them touched up. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, so when I later needed to get a few piercings redone, this place was the first

I was first tattooed at Skin City Tattoos when they were in their original studio, several years ago. The current studio is spacious, welcoming and extremely comfortable. ( It has an American flag waving out front ) It is kept exceptionally clean and the artists are meticulous. Clients are treated with respect and importance. Final decisions are made "with" you, not for you. They offer you the best advise and answer your questions. Satisfaction is their main goal.
3 different artists have done tattoos on me. Each have their own identifying attributes, yet are equally wonderful artists with superb talent.. I consider myself fortunate to "own" and "wear" my private art collection on my skin...and to have the artist come from SKIN CITY TATTOOS makes it even more valuable to me.
My daughter also recieved her very first tattoo from Skin City Tattoos. When my other children turn 18, they will be getting their first tattoos done there as well. Thats how much I trust them there. I have also recommended several other people, all have been pleased as well and equally as impressed as myself.
The artists and the piercer are very friendly, professional and relate well with you and your concerns. I will return to SKIN CITY TATTOOS again and again. My family will be going there. And obviously I will recommend them to you, whether it be your 1st or your 10th tattoo.......b.t.w. JOE is absolutely awesome. He truely has a talent and a gifted eye and hand.

I??ve been going to Josh (a.k.a Wombat) for the past year for a large piece on my back. I??m a picky person and not surprisingly have a specific look that I want. Josh has graciously listened to my ideas and made them into reality.
His has great bedside manor. He talks to you and keeps you engaged throughout the session, checking up with you all the time. I??m a bleeder and my pain threshold isn??t exactly what I??d call ??manly.? After about two hours I??m done. He was able to get a read on that during our first session before I had to tell him and finish up in a place that looked good in the interim.
All of that is fine and good but I chose Josh specifically because I loved his artwork. I hope that this piece (once finished) will grace his pages.
Do I recommend Josh? Yes. I all ready have. My girlfriend and four friends have already had been inked by him (at my recommendation) and some have more than once. I know that I??ve found the artist that will do all my remaining tats.
Skin City Tattoo itself has a great atmosphere. It's so clean Mr. Clean would shed a tear of pride. But it's the great art, good music, comfortable seating area and (most of all) the friendly staff that makes you feel welcome.

For my birthday I was given a tattoo as my gift. I had already had three tattoos done at other places that I liked, but they don't even compare to the Lotus Flower that Josh did on my left upper-arm. Wow, the placement, outline and color is amazingly beautiful! Josh is great to work with, he is funny and a bit of a jokester, but he takes his tattooing and art very seriously. Along with doing my tattoo that day he also did additional work on my boyfriend and three of my other friends, they all turned out awesome...it was a party! Josh was extremley patient with all of us as we took up his entire Sunday. Thanks Josh...you rock!

I have had work done by Will (about a year ago) and just this week had some more detailed work done by Danielle.
FANTASTIC shop! Very clean - relaxed staff, kick a$$ music playing, just an all around good place!
now, I put a lot of thought into my tattoos ahead of time, and Will didn't seem to mind me coming in 3-4 times to chat about the piece before i got it.
Dani was outright AMAZING! Such a great attitude.
After looking at galleries of artists all over Portland, i found her, and decided to go in and talk to her. Honestly i hadn't seen anything in her gallery online that was quite as fine of detail as the piece i was looking to have done, but after session 1, i was calling everyone i knew to refer them to her!
She is SO nice! A very genuine person, and an ASTOUNDING artist! I have no doubt that I will have more work done by her in the near future!
I would also say that as far as cost goes, i have not found ANY shops as reasonable as Skin City - I tip largely for the simple fact that they are MORE THAN WORTH IT!

Joe the owner is an artist supreme. Several tatoos have come out better than expected.
Other artists Will and Danielle offer equal skills.
Clean clean shop, lots of tattoos to look at if you are still thinking about what you want.

I found out about skin city by another customer. I went and checked them out. It's been 4 years since I've know them and have gotten 3 large tattoos done by Jo. I brought my own artwork in and he made it look just like it does in my drawing. I'm going back for my 4th tattoo. Another one of my designs and am gonna have Will do it. I've seen his work on people because I send people to his shop to get my designs done. Every single one of my customers have been happy with the courtesy, workmanship, and cleanliness of the shop. Skin City Tattoo is kinda hard to find. It's tucked away in an old strip mall. but once you find it and see the work for yourself..you'll be glad you went to them. Look me up...maybe I can draw your design too.

i've been to skin city tattoo twice, and went to joe both times. he's incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. put me at ease right away when i went for my first tattoo and is willing to answer any questions you may have. i always have too many questions. the shop is clean and comfortable and he has some awesome fish, too. i would highly recommend skin city tattoo in general, and joe in particular.
