Tyler Adams has been tattooing professionally since 1996 everywhere from San Diego and Portland to Paris. After moving to Portland in 2002, Adams first tattooed at the legendary Sea Tramp Tattoo with Don Deaton and next at Paul Zenk and Amanda Myer's Infinity Tattoo in North Portland.

 

Eric Quale [kwa-lee] grew up by a mountain in northern Utah and spent his teenage years in rural eastern Montana. In 2001, he escaped to Portland with his bandmates in tow. He started making tattoos in 2006 and enjoys portrait, black and grey, and American traditional tattoos. Portraits are defiantly his specialty. He's a husband and a father. His most favorite thing to do is hanging out with his little family.

 

Rich Cuellar has been tattooing since 2004. Before becoming a tattooo artist, Rich worked as a  musician, graphic designer, screen-printer and bag boy.  He says, "I'm not trying to change the world.  I just want to make clean tattoos, and be a nice guy."

Shauna S. "McGillicutty" has been tattooing since 2007. She moved to Portland in 2009 from Florence, Italy. She is a California native that finally made her way to Oregon. She enjoys doing custom tattoos along with creating artwork outside of tattooing.  Her favorite type of tattooing is anything with a sense of humor.   When she is not tattooing she adores hanging out with her family and their dog Roosevelt.

Jason Graham began in 2011 tattooing at Sea Tramp Tattoo Company in Portland Oregon under the great Don Deaton. He's honed a very unique painting style that has very much influenced and seeped in to his tattoos. You can find his works here or here.    

Chris Valkov began tattooing in 2006 mostly teaching himself with some limited advice from a couple of tattooer friends.  Since the start he has approached his tattooing in a graphic and diagrammatic aesthetic direction.  Chris relays to his technical drafting background which remains highly influential in his work.  He continues to strive for interesting, unique, client specific compositions which make the tattoo experience rewarding for clients and himself.  You can find more info at: http://chrisvalkov.com
