Well, I decided to get a tattoo for my 7 month old son on my wrist. this was my 2nd tattoo and i was a little nervous as it's just a little bigger than my first and in a place I get to look at it for the rest of my life as opposed to on the back of my neck, out of sight, out of mind. I walked in on my lunch break, made an appointment for 7pm the same day and i am SO pleased. SO SO SO pleased! Steve did an amazing job, made me feel very at home and not nervous at all. Of course, it's never as bad as you think it's going to be once the needles start buzzing and he did a fantastic job, suggesting a little color as opposed to straight up black and grey. I'm so glad I listened - though i must give credit where credit is due, Sean actually verbally made the suggestion about the color, so, thanks Sean! just shows that these guys know what they're talking about! - my tat is amazing! :) I will be back as soon as I can be and Steve, I'll follow you wherever you go... as long as it's not somewhere crazy far away like... china or something.

Pros: phenomenal artists, great atmosphere, reasonably priced.

Cons: um... might be tricky parking on the weekend or at night.

I got a cover up here about a year ago, well I wanted to get a cover up. Instead, I got a crappy crooked bare minimum design. The artist told me to scrub it when I got home?!?!? I think he must have known he screwed up and wanted me to try to "wash off" whatever I could. Aftercare instructions were basically "do nothing". I left without even being taped up, there was only a piece of gauze stuck to me and I was sent on my way, no paperwork, no nothing. I have recently come to find out that not covering the tattoo properly is actually illegal and against code in Oregon.

The original tattoo, even though it was kindergarten style India ink from when I was 13, was not even close to covered up.
I have recently had the same tattoo repaired at another shop here in Portland, a "cover-up of a cover-up" (SAD!!). My current artist was horrified at the job Captain Jack's had done. It was very difficult to correct the many mistakes that were made, but it looks beautiful now.

The experience was so awful, I guess I should have known from being able to walk in and get tattooed the same day that something was up. I would give NO stars if it were possible, but I have been pierced here and had a fine experience, even though the guy was kind of rude, he did a good straight job.

Venture here at your own risk. I don't want to name anyone specifically but the artist I saw is still employed here so beware guys.

Just moved to portland not long ago and started looking for a good shop.. I went into several shops to talk about getting some work, one guy told me they were booked out 3 months yet the 2 artists there were sittin around doin nothin the whole time i was there.. The next shop i went to only had one artist named willow and her the tattoos in her portfolio were so horrible she'd have been better off hiding that thing somewhere.. or finding another job.. Anyway now to get to my point.. Then i found Cpt. Jacks which is right on hawthorne.. The guys were super cool and helpful.. Morgan the piercer re-pierced my septum for me and got it strait unlike the last chick that did it (in new mexico), and i've got an appointment with sean to get tattooed next week..! and my appointment is next week not in 3 months.

Well, I finally got my first tattoo, and I did ALL my home work BEFORE having the procedure done. I went to several of the local shops and looked at everything from the staff,to their level of talent and experience, to the cleanliness and skill. I have to say, in the end, I chose Captain Jacks, and I couldnt be more thrilled with my outcome!!! I LOVE my tattoo! It was a real challenge, I know, but Sean, Jerry and Less knew exactly how to handle my idea and did so with such ease and professionalism!! (EVERYONE wants to know where I had it done!!) I want to thank all of the staff there for the talent, skill and passion for their work, that was put into my idea, as it is better than I even thought it could be! I was treated so good, made to feel comfortable, and all aftercare instructions explained in such detail! I am SO glad this is the final, educated choice I made, because my tattoo is one of a kind, top of the line,supreme art work!!! The healing is now done, and oh my GOD!!! It surpasses ALL the hopes and desires I came in with! I thank all of you for such a great piece of art!!! I also want to thank Morgan, as he is now officially my piecer!! He pierced an area that I was a little shy to have exposed, and he made me feel totally comfortableand at ease with his friendly and professional attitude and was so good at completing the task with alomost no pain and it is EVERYTHING I hoped that it would be!! I love the jewlery you helped me pick out too, it is truely original and classy!! Thank you Morgan!!!
A very special THANK YOU to everyone down at Captain Jacks!! I am officially a permanent client, guaranteed to NEVER stray!! My work is exquisite and I really enjoyed my experience with all of you, and appreciate the quality of the shop as a whole!!
I will be seeing you soon! And like I said, I have A LOT of people asking me where I got my work done, so be expecting a lot of new clients, referred by YOUR master work and talent!!
Thanks again!!

I've been going to Captain Jack's for several years now. Jerry is phenominal and always makes the effort to listen, suggest, and never criticize any idea for your tattoo. Everyone we've delt with has been great. Every one of my pieces of art has a uniqueness to it that I'm proud to call mine.

Cons: None

I went to Captain Jack's for my first tattoo- it took him 25 minutes to do a small, black infinity sign. It's raised, and much of it flaked off, although I took very good care of it.
My roommate got one as well, a small word. It too mostly flaked off, and is raised, although not as much as mine.
The place was clean, with lots of art to choose from- and that was the only plus.
Otherwise, they were terrible. Unfriendly, bad artists, bad experience completely.

My friend and I had decided to get matching heart tattoos(cheesy I know) and had tried other shops only to get laughed and turned down. We then found Captain Jacks and i now go to Sean for all my tattooing needs. From my first impression walking in the door two years ago, i knew this place was it for me. Sean greeted us, listened to our idea and elaborated on it redrawing it three times until we loved it. He took it from a silly heart and made it into a classy memento. A few months after that my Mom was coming to visit and I somehow convinced her to get one with me. I went a week ahead and explained what we might want so he could work up a custom design. What he came up with was perfect. My Mom was really nervous before going but when she walked into the extremely clean, friendly shop she relaxed. It was her first(and she said only) tattoo and the experience couldn't have been better. After that I started talking about a back piece with Sean. He worked with me and somehow managed to draw up exactly what i wanted from my vague description of "Um, I think I want something with rainbow hearts , bats and maybe some glittery stars?" I really can't draw so I am very happy he can. My back piece progressed beautifully over about a year and is now making its way down my arm.Everyone at this shop is super friendly and ridiculously talented. I always love seeing what Jerry and Steve are working. Every artist is so different its really cool to see the differences in their portfolios and watch the live art happening. Everything is obsessively cleaned and sanitized in the shop. I don't take advantage of the fact that they take walk-in's but it is the only shop with good artists i know of that does. I usually make my appointments about a week or two in advance,not having to wait 2 months for awesome work is really nice. And, as a plus, the guys that work there are not bad to look at. Thanks guys! I found my artist for life, go find yours at Captain Jacks Tattoo Studio.

I have had several piercings over the years and I always have to remove them, due to infection, or pain, etc. I recently had my snug pierced at Captain Jack's by a great piercer named Morgan. I wanted something unique that I wouldn't see on a million other chicks and Morgan recommended this cool inner ear piercing. I love it! I was so impressed by the fact that the piercing was basically painless. I was really nervous due to the fact that there is a lot of cartilage in the inner ear, but he talked me through it and before I knew it it was over. It has healed beautifully and I can't wait to go back and see what else I can get! I highly recommend getting a your piercings by Morgan at Captain Jack's!

Jerry did my tattoo and did a wonderful job! it looks great, not faded, and was not painful at all. I would totally go back there again. VERY CLEAN. I was impressed with how clean the shop was and how they use throw away needles.

Despite the name of the place it's really quite comfortable there. The guys working that day were busy but friendly and it was all good. HOWEVER I'm so disappointed with my tattoo. I did everything that was asked with my aftercare but the truth is I just got a bad tattoo.

I knew something was wrong when my tattoo had a major scab & red streaks around it. A friend of mine who is practically the tattooed lady was even concerned. I went back to the shop & was told to let it dry out. I did. Keep in mind this a very small tattoo about the size of a quarter and not my first tat by any means.

After almost 2 months of healing it looks old already. My skin is deeply wrinkled with some random dark dots (that hurt if pressed on) in the middle of the blue color. And some white spots are in there too. It's a shame because I really wanted to like this place but I cannot go back. It's been suggested that the guy who did my tattoo pressed too hard into my skin with his needle. *sigh*

My brother initially introduced me to Captain Jack's in December. He had been getting tattooed by Jerry most Fridays, and I was impressed with the quality of his work. My brother brought me in not only because of the art, but also because of the atmosphere: the artists are friendly, knowledgable, relaxed, and confident. I had a big project (a half-sleeve of small text) and needed a patient, precise, gifted artist.

Sean did a tremendous job on my half-sleeve. Clean lines, excellent choices in layout, and just overall beautiful work. I get stopped on the street multiple times a day with requests for my artist's name. I recommend Sean & Jerry to everyone.

Everyone there is very talented and down to earth. I already have my next appt scheduled and I can't wait!!!!!!!

These guys rock... Even though Sean and Jerry were in the middle of larger tattoos, they stopped to greet everyone that walked in and asked if they needed assistance. I came in with an idea and Sean stopped his current tattoo to come advice me of the design i was interested in. He took the time to explain what wouldnt work with the tattoo, and what we could use to influence and new design that would be more friendly to the tattoo for over the time of having it rather than having it look good for a short time. EVen with what seemed to be a busy day i was taken care of that day. Jerry finished on his tattoo and even spoke to me about the tattoo design and stated the same about the little details wouldnt make it long and to simplify. When Sean was finished he ended his session appropriatly and then began reworking my tattoo design. It needed minor changes, and was reworked inbetween the time of there last tattoo and there next appointment. Granted my time wouldnt be till a few hours later, but the service was quick and i knew what i was getting then rather then later. When it came time for my tattoo, Sean greeted me with the same attention as before when i walked in and began setting up promptly upon my arrival. Everything was looked after with care, the cleansliness, and the sterility of the equipment was reassured. Sean was very open to explaining everything about the process and asked if i wanted to see anything or any questions. The tattoo went smooth and was way less intense than i expected, Sean was very calming through the process, checking on my status everyonce and a while and being very gentle as i am very senstative.
cant speak for everyone but my first time memories will last forever and will definatly enjoy my 2nd and 3rd visits.

Thank you captain jacks for art that last as long as my memories...

A fantastic first tattoo experience! All around friendly crowd, and Jerry made me feel totally at ease. No easy job! The place was clean with tons of artwork. It was a busy saturday and they seemed to have a moment for everyone--we were helped right away with no appointment! I will definitely be back for another ... and another ... and another! Thanks Captain!

It was a busy saturday and they seemed to have a moment for everyone--we were helped right away with no appointment! I will definitely be back for another ... and another ... and another! Thanks Captain!

A tattoo parlour with piercing as an afterthought. If you're not there to be tattooed, don't expect much in the line of friendly service.....or service, for that matter. Do be prepared to be completely ignored. The one decent (practicing) piercer they had has recently been fired. The owner, who is absent about 90% of the time, seems only interested in making money and absolutely nothing toward the art of body modification. This joint has "Hack Shop" written all over it. Aftercare is an afterthough, at best, regardless of if you get a tattoo or piercing. Centrally located near several bars, parking doesn't exist. Hours are convenient, if you walk in, randomly, to have something done on a whim. The quotes are never accurate, unless you have cash in hand (they also charge you $5 if you want to pay with plastic). The place smells clean (hospital clean, even), but one look at the ancient tile floor that looks like it came out of a mechanic's garage in the 30's and you have to wonder how or if the smell is camoflague. If you want the tattoo that every one has, here's your place. If you want the piercing that everone has, you're in luck. You have two choices. Here and Claire's in the mall. Personally, after these guys, I'd pick Claires.

Oh. One last thing. After they take your money, If they screw up your work, they don't think they are responsible. Dude, Claire's is looking better every day.

After a bad tattoo experience (mostly my fault, as I kept going back to the same place!), I was considering a new tattoo studio. Fortunately, Sean at Captain Jack's was highly recommended to me and I went in for a consultation on my current ink. I left some before/after pictures for Sean to study, and made an appointment a few weeks later. I wish I would have found this shop first! I had 2 of the most remarkable tattoo fixes I could ever imagine. I am in heaven! This place is clean and friendly. I have yet to have met an employee here that I do not like. Busy, yes. But any interruptions do not affect the projects they are working on at any given time. Walk ins are not turned away or treated rudely. Never. I have seen Sean, Jerry, and Denise's work in particular; and they all do beautiful work. Extremely artistic and creative. Every one is very professional, but personable at the same time. I think the best part of my experience overall was I was never made to feel like an idiot regarding staying with the tattoo artist I was with. Sean listened to my story and encouraged me to fix what I needed fixed and go from there. That's what I intend to do! Can't wait to get the sleeve done! Thank you all at Captain Jack's and keep up the good work!

Captain Jacks is fabulous. Everyone there is wonderful but Jerry is the absolute best! He?s done most of my latest work and that of all my friends and family, and we all love him. He?s knowledgeable, friendly and loves his work. My last tattoo was a huge custom back piece. With out knowing me all that well, he managed to draw up something that fit me exactly and I fell in love the minute I saw it. He charged me a more than reasonable price and I consider him to be the best in Portland by far! Go to him!!!

Fara Te is the absolute best piercer. I was told beforehand that she was good, but I didn't realize until I was in that seat just how true that is.

If you want to get pierced, Fara Te is the one to do it. Hands down. I live in Phoenix, AZ, but I will fly back to Portland for my next piercing(s) so that I can have her do them as well... that's just how good she is.

After looking all over portland for someone to fix an old tatto, i went to this shop and within an hour they had told me what they could do for me and the cost. When they were finished it was the best coverup job i have ever seen.
I have returned twice since once for a peircing and once for a new tattoo. THe customer service is great, the shop incredibly clean, and the prices are beyond reasonable.
I will definately use this shop again

I took my daughter her to get her navel pierced. NOt only were the very informative about the aftercare, piercings, and the law.
The piecer Fara Tae was the absolute best, she was smart, funny and extremely well informed.
And the shop was so clean and sterile, single use needles, autoclaves.
I would definately use this shop again

I have been going to Captain Jack's for well over four years now. I would not go anywhere else. I have invested a pretty penny in ink with this incredible shop, and they are one of the most reasonably priced shops in town. I have three "smaller" pieces, two of which are cover-ups of older work and a half-sleeve piece. My sleeve piece gets attention everywhere I go and I recommend them to everyone who is interested in getting some work done of there own.

Dave and Jesse run a professional and immaculately clean shop. The artists: Jesse, Jerry and Shaun are very passionate about their artwork and want to make sure you love your new tattoo. They take the time to find out what you want and help translate that into a piece of art your want to show all your friends.

To the person who didn't recommend the shop due to being "blown off for another tattoo", the reality is that it is not always possible to gauge the time it will take to complete a tattoo, therefore you must always consider your "appointment" time approximate, especially if you are a walk-in appointment. They go out of their way to fit people in if they can. Chances are they were running behind, rather than blowing you off. I can personally tell you they are well worth the wait!

I don't know who the person is underneath me but I would have to say that after over 30 times of going to Captain Jacks for peircing's and tattoo's I have never experienced or seen any kind of behavior that they describe. The studio is always busy, proffessional, more sterile than a hospital, the artists are some of the best in the field. Jesse is quick, precise, light handed, experienced, helpful and very good natured. Shawn/Sean is also an excellent artist with a light hand and a good nature. Jerry, as well as Eric are the same...excellent artists, friendly, helpful.
The concern the studio and its staff have for their clients is sensational and I have never seen anyone walk in and have to wait more than a few short minutes to be waited on.

I was in the shop on the 14 of August 2006 from just before opening and I did not witness anyone being upset or not liking the artwork. They spend a lot of time on their drawings and if it is not what you thought they will get your ideas and go back and redo it as quickly as possible. Of course, I too have had to wait while they finished up with a piece they were working on and in the process someone else had to wait for them to finish up on me. But, good tattooing is worth the wait.
I recieve numerous complements on my tattoo's and recommend that people try Captain Jack's before anyone else. They are one of Portland's best studio's.

Awfull!!!!
I had the worse customer service experience EVER! This shop is very unprofessional, thank goodness I did not allow them to do my first tattoo. I had a scheduled appointment which they blew off for a bigger and better tattoo client. Maybe this is just the way tattoo parlors are, it is disconcerting that they are also a school. As for artistry - well that was sorely lacking as well. I took a couple of photos of the tattoo I wanted and asked if they could help me, what I got was a 1 min trace of the photo on the back and the nerve to call it "original" artwork. This was the worst experience I have ever had. Please, Please, Please reconsider using this shop especially if it is your first tattoo experience. My tattooed friends tell me this is not how it is, I just am thankfull that I was so upset that I did not allow them to permanently scar me with a bad tattoo.

A couple of months ago I was ready for my second tattoo. I had a design that was black and white but I knew I wanted it to be a little more colorful than that. I'd never been to see the folks at Captain Jacks but I gave them a try based on their review on City Search. I can't tell you enough how very, very pleased with the experience I was! The tattoo artists consulted on the best color scheme for my design and spent extra time deciding what size and color would look best. Receiving the actual tattoo was extremely painless as well. The artist had an incredibly light touch and a good banter to go along with it.

I would recommend anybody considering another tattoo or a first tattoo to give these folks a chance. I believe they will be very, very pleased. I know I sure was!

I went to Captain Jack's to watch my husband get his Koi fish colored in by Jesse. I had been toying around with the idea of getting a tattoo but would always chicken out when it came down to it. Well, my husband, Jesse and Shawn conspired against me and before I knew it I was on the table getting a tattoo. The shop is immaculate and the smells of the cleaning products were getting to me, after a couple of lines I told Shawn I thought I was going to be sick. He stopped immediately and people started moving. Someone brought me water, someone else brought me some candy and even opened it for me, someone turned on a fan and Shawn rubbed my neck with an alcohol soaked papertowel. Shawn talked to me to keep me focused so I wouldn't pass out. He was very patient and never showed any irritation even though they had a very busy schedule that I was slowing down. When I was ok, Shawn regloved and finished the outline. He gave me the option of doing the color then or waiting for another day. I opted to go for another day so his next appointment who was already late because of me, ddint have to wait any longer. When I went back for the color Shawn remembered me, he ahd the fan on at the start of the tattoo and made sure I had candy. He also would roll his chair behind the fan to spray the green soap so the fan wouldn't make the smell come back at me. I love my tattoo it is so much cuter than I had ever expected. My husband also had a Kanji done by Shawn and said he has a light hand compared to other artists he's had work on him in the past. I can't wait to go back for my next tattoo!!

I had no idea tattoo artists and piercers could be so nice. I got tatted from Jesse, and he really worked with me on making my tattoo be great for the" long haul," and not just slapping it on there if it wasn't going to "age well". I love it. Jerry has also tattooed me and again thank you for the great work. The shop is super clean and they are very strict about that.....you guys rock..I willnever go anywhere else...Any one who wants a tattoo or piercing, I tell them to come to you guys..thank you.

Keep up the good work you guys. By the way I cant see any of you as intemidating. I'll be back and send more people your way. Thank you.

I got my first tattoo back in October. I considered it for several years and when I finally decided what I wanted I went toCaptain Jacks. Jerry helped me and he was incredible. He used my idea and developed it, improved the color and went out of his way to make it the best! I love his work. I asked him to design a new piece for my back. They are proffessional and very artistic. Jerry gets very excited about his work and his art - I recommend him completely. I have several other tattos that I want done now and I know exactly who I am going to, Jerry at Captain Jacks. The only con I can say is that they get so busy that it can be distracting to the artist and to the other customers. But what can you do abotu that?

I came to Captain Jack's to get an industrial piercing, and I totally trusted it to Jesse. He unwrapped the needles in front of me, took it step-by-step and was very professional all around. I was given lots of instructions on aftercare, and the cost of my piercing even includes the downgrade to a smaller barbell later. Go here for your piercings!

This incredible shop has incredible artists (Jesse, Aaron and Jerry) who will hand draw anything you can conceive of (and even those you can't), and give you their honest opinion of how the design will work on you body. The atmosphere is friendly, immaculate and comfortable. And if that wasn't enough, the prices are very reasonable. Tattoo newbie to old pro, you'll be treated right at Captain Jack's Tattoo.

I got my first real piercings this year at Captain Jack's. My first "private" one from Jesse and the rest from Ferra-Te(not sure how to spell her name). They were both very professional and adorable to look at:-) They really care about doing a good piercing and making the customer happy.
I will never go anywher else for piercings or tattoos.
That Jerry is quite a cutie-pie too...not to mention an excellent artist.

I got my 3rd tattoo at Captain Jacks by Jerry... I will never go anywhere else again. First, the place is immaculate and clean. Second, they really know what they are talking about and are honest about how your ideas will or will not work on your body. Third, Jesse just drew out free hand what I wanted by a picture I has seen and it turned out beyond beautiful. Fourth, everyone in there is very nice looking so it provides a little eye candy while you're being needled (at least for us girls). :) These guys were professional, helpful, gentle and just all around amazing!!! I highly recommend Captain Jacks!

I got my 3rd tattoo at Captain Jacks by Jerry... I will never go anywhere else again. First, the place is immaculate and clean. Second, they really know what they are talking about and are honest about how your ideas will or will not work on your body.

Captain's is AWESOME! I have been to other ink shops in this town... And I will only come to the Captain's shop. The same artist are always there... that says a lot about Captain's. Jesse and Aaron have made my ink come ALIVE! They take my basic ideas and turn them into WORKS of ART. I can't wait until my next visit... They will be putting my Angel of Bondage on my canvas... Keep up the Excellent work Guys !!!

This captain runs a tight ship!
Jesse is the greatest body modification tech. that this planet ever did see... his rep as a tattoo artist is up-&-comming, as well.
Aarons talent is just as fabulous, and he's a cutie, too. (not to mention that the shop is sickenenly clean) I trust my body to NO ONE other than those at Captain Jacks. It would be a shame to waste time anywhere else!
if you're a skeptic - go see for yourself.
I Dare Ya!

Not only is Jesse the best piercer in Portland, he is quickly making himself known as a talented tattoo artist. I have three piercings by him and two tattoos and have never had any problems with work he has done. The shop is SPOTLESS and bright, and Jesse is attentive and caring. I've gone elsewhere and regretted it... don't make the same mistake I did!
