Owner / Artist
Rose & Dagger Tattoo: A Portland Tattoo Shop
The art of tattooing has a really rich, complex history. We believe that the tattoo industry was meant to celebrate varying styles while still honoring a classic look. There's something to be said for artists that keep past traditions alive, and we stand by the importance of this in the way that we operate our business. As any Portland Tattooer can tell you, you can walk into a Portland Tattoo Shop on any odd corner and find a pretty consistent style. Typically, a Pdx Tattoo Shop will either focus on honoring traditional styles of tattooing and nothing else, or they will attempt to draw in customers with simple, quirky designs, or the latest trends you would find in pop culture. The thing that makes this business so special is our ability to find balance in both. While we market ourselves as a Portland traditional tattoo shop, we believe that art is something ever-evolving, and we take on artists that we feel demonstrate something unique and versatile, even in the execution of traditional tattoos.
