Phillip Dawson began his career tattooing in May of 2003. He trained under world renowned artist Joyce Bamburg from Beauty is skin deep in Gresham, Oregon. He graduated at the top of his class after extensive training in the following areas; Traditional tattooing, Permanent cosmetics, Sterilization, Blood borne pathogen, first aid and CPR, Cross contamination.

Phillip prefers to do large, full scale tattoo designs. He can tattoo in several different styles with crisp clean lines and solid colors that will last a lifetime. He specializes in large oriental designs, lineless and realistic floral, and even enjoys a little traditional Americana from time to time. All of the work Phillip does is researched carefully and custom drawn for each client individually. He is also known to draw the design straight on the skin in a freehand style to ensure the artwork flows with the natural symmetry of the client’s body. He prides himself in the originality of his artwork.

Phillip works by appointment only. If you’re interested in getting tattooed by him, please use the contact link to email him or drop into the shop.
