REVIEWS OF Atlas Tattoo Studio IN Oregon

Evelyn Koh

Did a tatt with Shaun and it is by far the best tatt I got! He is seriously one hell of an artist! I merely told him the rough design and he totally captured the idea and conceptualize the design. Totally professional and he was really patient too!

Virginia McEwing

Just got my first tattoo from Dan. Walked in with a rough idea of what I wanted and he took it and ran with it. He seemed to get what I wanted right away. Relatively painless and comfortable atmosphere for a neophyte like myself. Not cheap though. All in all, a really good experience. He didn't tell me ALL the facts about after-care (like that they peel) but I got that info on internet.

I've been going to Atlas for over a decade. Any of the artist will take great care of you. I go see Jerry Ware & he's done 12 total tattoos. Of those 12, 10 are portraits. They're very affordable & the atmosphere is very easy on the ears.

Candace Tisseur

Great experience here! Had a tattoo done by Lewis today and I am incredibly happy with it! Especially given that I am very picky. :) Awesome work and a very comfortable and friendly atmosphere.

A few days prior, my boyfriend and I decided that we wanted to get matching tattoos together some time. We are from Salem and had decided to spend the day in Portland. Spontaneously, we decided to get it during our Portland trip and we went to the highest rated tattoo parlor, Atlas Tattoo Studio. We knew we wanted to both get some sort of rabbit tattoo, but only decided on which ones once we were parked outside their studio. I ha debated to make some changes to the feet on mine, and my boyfriend wanted to add a key in his. One of the tattoo artists there, (I’ve forgotten his name unfortunately), took us as walk-ins and worked with us for a good 30+ minutes until we were happy with our designs. He then placed on the design and made sure we were absolutely happy with our placement, and yet again, our design. He proceeded to walk us through the steps, and tattoo us one at a time. We both felt extremely comfortable throughout the process from the moment we walked in the door. Our tattoos turned out great, and they’re all healed up by now and looking wonderful! Ive recommended this shop 1000x over to anybody in my circle who has asked where they should get their first tattoos. It might be a bit of a trip, but it’s worth it! Thank you!

Aric Krause

Lou is amazing, did a fantastic job for me and I will definitely get my future tattoos done by him.

Aimee Reichert

This place is the best. Dan is amazing. From all I’ve seen every artist is patient and talented which is a great combo at a tattoo shop. Go there! Walk-in and see Dan! You’ll be glad.

Kristi Oberly

Fantastic shop...great artists, even better attitudes and vibes. 5 stars all day ☆☆☆☆☆

Geoff Davis

Definitely one of the best shows in all of Portland. I've only ever seen great tattoos come out of here

Kristen Nicole Slack

Atlas is great. My fiance and I both have walked into many shops in Portland and have found Atlas to be the cleanest and most welcoming (along with great art) in the city. We both have been tattooed here and plan to come back for more!

Travis Grady

I worked with Jerry Ware and had a fantastic experience. He came highly recommended from family and he's a true professional. I drove down from Seattle and would do it again in a heartbeat!

Been going to Jerry Ware for 10 yrs!! Quality work, experience shows, his work speaks for itself. Everyone at Atlas is pro, this is the place to get tattooed.

James Pipkin

Friendly staff. Clean environment. Had a good experience, would recommend.

Nick Walling

Wife and I decided last minute to look at tattoo shops around the area while we were on vacation. Atlas was the closest so I began to research artists. Every artist has impecable work to view online and on social media. We took the chance and walked-in with low expectations of actually getting in. We were greeted by the some of the nicest people we have ever met. We told them our ideas and they assured us we were in good hands and that we would be able to receive the work THAT day! Corey was our artist and he made quick and precise work of our simple line work ideas. The tattaoos came out amazing! 10/10 Would travel to Portland again just to hangout with these guys.

Anthony Estrella

Super nice staff, very knowledgeable and willing to give guidance on placements, color, etc.

Dominick McIntosh

Not only is Atlas a Portland institution, it’s still the best shop in town after 2 decades. Amazingly, their famous artists set aside time to take walk-ins. Cool AF

J Waugaman

Great artists and business.

Leonard Mendoza

Atlas sucks. I recently had work done by Atlas Tattoo in Portland. The tattoo quality is HORRIBLE. Stear clear. Additionally, my wife and I were disappointed with the unsanitary conditions inside the shop. Pick an alternate shop with more talented artists who follow proper heath standards

James Shaver

Fantastic work by Shaun!

Russell Waters

Awesome staff, and great service. Got a tat on my right forearm tonight, and I must say I'm very impressed with the work.

John Morse

Great tattoo artist very nice that they are able to accept walk ins!!

Karli Tarkowski

Two words.... legit

Sacheen Horn

Jerry is awesome and does superb work

Matt Kereczman

Tons of talent at this shop. I've sat for 4x day long sessions (all with Brian) over the past four years and have only seen amazing work during my visits. There's an artist to fit almost every style. Would recommend Atlas to anyone looking for a quality tattoo.

Stevie Keith

Great artists and great atmosphere!

jeannea707 Ashlèi Seals

I only come here for all my tattoos

Mahesh Bhutada

Great experience getting tattooed here.. Fast service, and my tattoo healed really well. Good support and instructions, and reasonable prices for tattoos

Ruben Olivares

Great service great people

Christina Johnson

Very welcoming and friendly environment. I strongly suggest Corey if you want any line work done. He did two straight lines on each of my arms, it was a lot more technical then it originally seemed. He was also personable and comfortable to be around, even when it was silent. Love it here!

Ethan Dull

You won’t be disappointed

Anthony Miceli

Great job on my tattoo. Will be back again.

Steve Howard

Second tat.from Atlas. Cheyenne knocked it out of the park....this place abundance of talented artists...

Tony Newell

A friend received a great tattoo here and they let me sit with her

Brittany Koziara

Got there at 11:10 on a Sunday and was 4th in line for walk ins. Waited until 2 to get inked but well worth the wait. I got tattooed by Mav Mess, who is highly respected and has been doing this for years. He was kind, considerate, gentle, and offered a few minor stylistic changes that made huge differences in the look of my piece. If you are in town and looking for quick walk ins, this is not the place. But if you're in town looking for good walk ins by renowned artists, go here...but arrive early.

Jason Rangel

Best shop in Portland. Every single artist is a pro and has their own style. I have gotten amazing work from Dan and Jerry , looking forward to my next piece.

Shelby St.francis

Very amazing artist. Clean and professional. They are the best in the city.

Sean Metheny

Awesome staff and artists

Chenery Wilson

1st of all I can't believe how fortunate I was to be a walk- in @atlastattoo as a complete ingénue many years ago when it was located on Broadway . Then for my luck to continue & have @dangilsdorf as my very 1st tattoo artist! Was & still …

Catherine DiYanni

My husband and I came to Portland and decided to get a spontaneous tats ( we tried several places and we're denied as walk-in's) Atlas worked so well with us and made a time for the both of us to get work done. Jerry, as if his beard wasn't good enough, was the absolute best. He made us feel welcome and super comfortable. His work is beautiful and he really spent time detailing exactly what we wanted. The atmosphere of the whole place was great and everyone in the shop loves what they do and the people who come in!

Erik Urdahl

I've only been to Jerry Ware. He is a genius. I love the environment of the shop. The only downside is the wait, but that's because they are so good that everybody wants to use them. I read the negative reviews left by two people (likely the same person) and I have a hard time believing them. The shop doesn't look like a dentist's office, but its totally clean and sanitary.

Emily Fuggetta

Atlas is home for me when it comes to tattoos. I've been lucky enough to have five tattoos done by Lew Hess, and I adore every one of them. Each one becomes my new favorite. As a bonus, I get constant compliments on them all. People have even asked to take photos of my tattoos. When I schedule a new piece with Lew, I bring him an idea and he turns it into something that works on skin. I'm always totally in love with what he comes up with; he just manages every time to create exactly the perfect thing. I have no idea how anyone could walk out of Atlas less than thrilled, but I, for one, am a lifer.

David Wunderlich

I have 4 of there Tattoos! There great!

M Schulz

Jerry Ware, The man, The Myth, The legendary Portland tattoo artist. He has done 2 sleeves on me, great work. Best shop in town, worth the waiting list!

Jeff T

Best tattoo shop in the north west.

Sebastian Okhovat

The crew at Atlas is awesome and they bring a chill atmosphere to the studio. Jerry Ware did a great job and was super understanding and helpful during my very first tattoo. Definitely going back!

HBCOA Billing

Atlas Tattoo has horrible service, poor overall tattoo quality and is WAY overpriced. My artist Dan Gilsdorf did a horrible job on my shoulder piece. I had to have another shop in Portland (Lady Luck) fix my tattoo that Dan messed up. I will never go back to Atlas tattoo or recommend them to anyone. It's just not worth the risk.

Yavriel Sechelle

Great, laid back place. The atmosphere was light and very welcoming. Jerry Ware did my tattoos, and he was very professional with the entire process. The studio is also in a nice neighborhood, so you can walk around while you wait for the sketches to be done, or before your appointment begins.

Christopher Williams

Great art, fun hang, amazing tattoos

Evan Woolley

Extremely impressed with the level of professional as well as the friendly touch. Top notch customer service. Amazing artists. You can't go wrong getting a tattoo here. Even if the prices might seem higher, the artists are extremely efficient and get your tattoo done in far less time making it a great value without compromising quality. Stop searching. Go here now.

Travis Smith

Shaun Nel is amazing! Atlas tattoo is always first class and fun! Thanks!

Halle Winkler

We LOVED Atlas. My brother and I came in for walk-in surprise tattoos and the whole staff was awesome. Mav ended up doing our tattoos and we cannot reccomend him enough. Calm, kind and super into our ideas, he made the whole thing stress free and super easy. If you ever need a tattoo in PDX, head to Atlas and if possible, get Mav!

Jack Barnett

Best shop in a town of many great shops! Every artist is super friendly and capable. Been going for years, and it's just as great as ever. Keep it up, dudes!

Helen Ferguson

Professional, attention to clean, experienced artists.

Rosa van Gijlswijk

I had a walk in with Dan and he was amazing! Super relaxed and nice guy. He did an awesome job on the tattoo.

Michelle Verheyden

Helpful reception, my artist was patient with my questions and honest about what to expect, good value and CLEAN!

Caitlin Antes

Shout out to Brian! My tattoo was simple but obnoxiously technical (perfect circles and straight lines) and he pulled it off beautifully. He's a perfectionist in the best way, and I trust him completely.

John A

Everyone who works here are pretty sweet. Greg is a top notch artist, and the only tattooer I go to any more.

Benjamin Hooker

I love this place. Friendly and comfortable shop that does incredible work. Loved my first experience so much that my fiancee and I came back 3 months later...and we'll keep going back, happily!


Lewis and co. were great! Came in on a walk-in, he explained everything to my friend (first tattoo) and made the process great for her! Everyone in the shop was welcoming, great atmosphere - would definitely recommend trying to dip in at a slow time to get something phenomenal

Grace Lockett

The artists were amazing, the staff was incredibly friendly and fun and quirky. Everyone was extremely knowledgable and the whole shop was clean. The prices were super fair. I wish I lived in Portland so I could get more tattoos here! If you want to get a tattoo here I 100% recommend it.

Tim Knowlton

I went into Atlas Tattoo last week and had a great time. I was visiting from out of town and can’t wait to come back for more work. As always it’s a busy shop, but it's worth the wait. Too many new shops have sprung up in Portland since my last visit and have no identity. All these new shops feel like Starbucks. Atlas Tattoo in Portland has an old school tattoo approach. The music selection in the shop will keep you on your toes, they only deal in CASH, Walk-ins on Sunday (1st come/1st served). The laughter and conversation can sometimes get loud and colorful. If you are looking for the best tattooist in PDX, go to ATLAS. The artist here are able to do original work without hesitation and never disappointed me.The shop is clean, the style is traditional and the service was exceptional.

richard Jenkins

Great space, love my tattoos!

John Blackwell

By far the best tattoo shop in Portland. They all keep it real, and keep it light & friendly. Endless good conversation and people. Wonderful art, awesome guest spots, and a super cool location. Super clean, well taken care of and very organized place of business. Will be going back here as soon as possible.

Valerie Morgan

EXCELLENT TATTOO ARTIST HERE!! If your in Portland this is the spot!

Yoshi Tru

Went here last year on my birthday to get matching tattoos with my sister. She had previously looked at Corey's art work and thought he was a good artist.. probably only posted the good tattoos he ever did. The mandalas we got are completely unsymmetrical. Some sections are undone and look so bad. He was rushed the entire time trying to get out of there. He had told me he would set another appointment for my shading and just went ahead and did it then both tattoos were rushed and not alike... For my first tattoo I thought it was normal now seeing all my other friends tattoos I could cry looking at mine. Want to get it removed or covered up. Over all I can't speak about the other artists here but was really disappointed by my tattoo and my sisters.

Eric Storm

Some of the Best artists in Portland. Very high caliber tattoos. Love it.

Jordon Hoggro

Atlas has a rooster full of savage folks. Not only will you going to get a world class tattoo but you'll be welcomed in with open arms. Whether you're stopping in for your first tattoo or you've flown across the globe for a specific tattooer you will be welcomed in like family. I could go on forever but I'll leave it there. Get tattooed its the right thing to do.

Panna Ong

I scheduled consultation with Jacob Redmond in January and got my first session done 3 months later. I had ZERO tattoos before going to Atlas. Jacob was able to take my vision and bring it to the next level. It was MORE than I expected. He blew my mind! I wanted something big for my first one so I went full sleeve. Jacob did an amazing job and was awesome through the entire process. He worked quickly and precisely. It took around 15 hours to get my entire sleeve done over the course of 8 months. The shop and staff were fantastic! The fellow artists all have a great sense of humor and comrade. It was cool to see the other artists look at each others work as if they were customers. The wait may be long for some of the artists but it is worth it! I highly recommend getting work done here by ANY of the artists. The pricing is on the higher end from what I've seen at other shops but it is worth it. You pay for quality! I will definitely be back! Thank you Atlas for an awesome experience!

Incredibly talented and friendly staff. Dan did my work and Jerry did my husband’s - we were both very satisfied with the results. They are both kind, positive and motivating. Highly recommend and hope we get a chance to go back.

Natalie Heiser

My husband and I love Atlas. We have gotten around 4 tats done by Dan (The best). Really friendly environment. <3 <3
