Oct 16, 2018

Hey everyone! Fall is finally here, and now is the perfect time to get tattooed! Call the shop to book a consult with any of our incredibly talented artists! Already have an appointment booked, but just can't wait? Don't forget to call us on Saturdays to get on your artists waiting list! 

We would also like to take a moment to thank everyone who came out to see us at the 10th annual Portland Tattoo Expo! We hope you enjoyed the expo and got a chance to see the collaboration in progress, and see our apprentices painting live! You guys rock! We hope you had as much fun as we did :)

In other news, our two very talented apprentices are super close to finishing their apprenticeships, but it's not too late to get some custom body art at apprentice prices! Please call the shop for availability. 

The season of giving is fast approaching. Looking for a gift for someone special? Come in and grab a gift card! Looking for a gift for someone who's not into body art? Our shop is also an art gallery! We have a wide variety of art to fit any budget, so come in and check it out! 

We hope to see you soon! 

Important Announcement for 2018!!

Nov 20, 2017

An Important Announcement from The House of Tattoo!

We have managed to keep our hourly rates from changing for over a decade now, thanks to all of you!

Alas, costs still continue to rise and with the Minimum Wage increase this year(and we all know our staff is well worth increased minimum wag), so we will finally need to be increasing our artists hourly rates. This increase will take effect January 1st, 2018. Thank you for understanding that our quality of tattooing and art is worth the necessary rate increase.

As of January 1st, 2018, rates will increase as follows:

Big Ben will go from $120 per hour to $150 per hour
Carson & Miles will go from $100 per hour to $120 per hour

Wait, what if you already have an appointment scheduled with an artist?? Don’t worry! Until December 31st, 2017, our rates will stay the same as they are now, so get your appointments booked for this winter now! Booked with Ben in January?? Call us on a Saturday and we will pull you in sooner!!

**CUSTOMER APPRECIATION BONUS!!** We are offering a deal to help with this transition! If you come in and buy a Gift Certificate between now and December 31st, we will honor your Gift Certificates at our current 2017 rates until March 31st of 2018!

We would like to thank all of you for helping to make our business a success! We greatly appreciate all of your support. We will continue to provide you with excellent customer service and incredible body art to the best of our ability at The House of Tattoo! You guys rock!!!

The 2017 tattoo expo is just around the corner!

Come see us at the booth by the front doors in the same spot as last year :)

Spring is here!

Mar 7, 2017

Mark your calendars, the first day of Spring is March 20th! 

This brings up a few important thoughts regarding your tattoo appointments, as well as planning ahead for aftercare during weather changes.

Spring is a busy and GREAT time to get tattooed. The weather in Oregon is still mild and makes healing a breeze. If you are planning on a large multi-session piece, especially in a hyperexposed area such as a sleeve, you'll want to get started soon. Summertime is not ideal for healing pieces of that size and that sunshine can really beat up fresh ink.

Get your booty down here and let's get started!

Bring on those Springtime feels Oregon.

Hey ya'll! 

We'll be tattooing all weekend at the Portland Tattoo Expo this year!

Summer is just around the corner!

May 17, 2016

The sun has made some early appearances and we think this summer season is gonna be a hot one! That means, it's time to strategize about when and where you're goin to get that new tattoo. Come visit us at the shop soon if you are a lover of that sunshine and plan to make SPF your BFFF over the summer! 

Feb 22, 2016

It's almost that time of year where we need to start thinking about protecting our work from the summer sun. This is especially crucial for those forearm/sleeved pieces. So if you have plans to tattoo those hyper exposed areas, get your booty down here and get something scheduled before the heat wave rolls through Oregon! Bring on the sunshine and the SPF.
