Hello - my name is Tom Prochaska. I have been tattooing since 2016.
I have been tattooing for a little over 26 years, and teaching for about half of that. I love tattooing and all the different aspects of it. I feel very fortunate to have had such a successful career in this industry and to have touched and helped so many different people with my art. With this art form and profession I am able to express myself creatively, learn and grow, support my family, and help others learn to do the same. I am proud to be included in this "community" and I love and respect my tattoo family.
Hello - my name is Sean. I have been tattooing for 5 years.
Hello - my name is Tyler Johnson. I have been tattooing for about 10 years.

Hello - my name is Alyssa Ashley. I have been tattooing for 2 years.
Here are our artists. They are all unique in their ability and are all equally dedicated to becoming the best tattoo artist they can be.
There is over 30 years of tattooing experience combined between all of the artists, and each artist has a type of tattoo that they are most comfortable doing. Some have degrees in art and have wanted to expand that to the art of tattooing, while others have gone the traditional route of being an apprentice. Although in current times it is required by law in Oregon that those learning the art of tattooing do so via a designated tattoo school, there is still so much to learn by those who have been in the industry for many years. They also love to be challenged and expand into areas that they feel are outside of their comfort zone – they call this the “learning zone”. Each artist has had life experiences that help to shape the type of artist they are becoming.
Please take the time to look through each of their galleries to see what they have to offer and feel free to ask questions to a particular artist or to any of them in general. There is always someone available to answer any questions you may have. If you choose to send an e-mail from the website we will try to answer it within 48 hours. Don't be shy - remember the old saying, "There are no stupid questions!" so unlock that curiosity and start looking at art and asking questions as they come to you.
I have wanted to be a tattoo artist since I first told my mother when I was 6 years old. I love being able to transform art and ideas onto a person's skin that will make a lifelong memory for them. Whether it be something that has a deep emotional meaning to them or it's just something they think is neat, I'm happy to make it happen. Outside of tattooing I am a family man with 4 boys and love to do pretty much anything outdoors. With that said come on down and get tattooed
