Just went and had a tattoo done by Alex and he was great. He was nice and did a great job on my tattoo. I would recommend anyone here.\r \r Thanks for the tattoo of the Devil ...

Worst

Matt never followed through, never got back to me with a design - he may be a great artist, but I ended up going somewhere else!

The Only place I will get tattoos 1/13/2010

I have had 2 tattoos done at tiger lily, both done by Matthew M. A cross on my rib cage and a dove on my ankle. I will never go to another artist, or another shop. They are hilarious, professional, and they do amazing work. Its about the artist, and there ability to interpret what you see into an amazing tattoo. I highly recommend it. \r I have a profile on check out my ink under the name, prettylittlebrokengirl for some reason they wont let me post the link so you'll have to do the work :). where you can see my tattoos.\r if you want one, go here. Pros: amazing artists, amazing personalities, amazing work Cons: ummm, its not free? more

Great First Experience 11/18/2009

I had been wanting to have a certain tatoo done for several years, and finally pulled the trigger. I walked in, a total virgin, and met with Amy to ask her advice/ideas on the design. She professionally answered my questions, and suggested changes to the design to ensure the end result was something that I would like, and would last! I felt very comfortable the whole time. The atmosphere is easy going and non-intimidating, even for a novice. I made an appointment for the next day, to have it done. When I returned, Amy presented 3 designs - one an exact replica of the original; one modified version of the original, based on our discussion from the day before; and one that was her own modification. Her design was by far the best, and it was a no brainer to go with that one. The end result was phenomenal; better than I had hoped for. Needless to say, I would recomend Amy to anyone. Pros: Very comfortable, excellent work more

Mike V is the best!! 10/5/2009

This shop is awesome. I finally found an artist who will work with me and fix all my crappy tattoos, and create some rad new ones. Mike V is an awesome artist who truly cares about how your tattoos turn out. He is genuinely interested in you and your art of choice, and I had an overall awesome experience. The other artists seemed really nice as well. Very professional, sterile environment, and AMAZING artwork. I would highly recommend them!! Pros: walked right in, friendly,patient,calm,professional,real art Cons: nothing!! more

Mike V is AWESOME!!!! 8/17/2009

I went in Saturday with a girlfriend to get my first tattoo. I already had the design, but was super nervous. Mike made us feel comfortable and at ease. The pain wasn't anything like I thought it would be and it has come out just beautiful. All the Artists are super friendly and knowledgeable and incredibly talented. I appreciated that they are very meticulous about sterilization and making sure that everything is clean. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to get inked.! Pros: Clean, Friendly staff, professional Cons: None! more

great! 7/14/2009

After hearing thier name a couple times and reading the reviews I went in to check it out. I was very pleased with how everyone treated me. Going in as a first timer, I had ZERO idea on what to expect, and they guided me along without any pressure or judgement. After looking through everyone's books I picked Amy's style as the one that most closely matched what I was looking for. We talked for as long as I needed to explain my idea, and then she helped me explore options, alternatives, examples, etc until we had the concept just right. She took some time to do some sketches for me and away we went! I was very happy with how well she prepped me for the experience, and how comfortable she made me feel. The process was quick, easy, clean, and virtually painless (for me). She gave me great aftercare instructions and has been available for follow up questions since. I will definitely go back to see her again. Pros: people, environment, cost Cons: location more

Excellent All Around 6/22/2009

Amy Cole at Tiger Lily is awesome. I have gotten 3 tattoos from her, and am very happy with all of them. One is words, one is from the children's book Harold and the Purple Crayon, and one is a uterus. I have had many compliments on how well-done the uterus is. I have always felt extremely comfortable with Amy as a person, as an artist, and with the shop overall (sanitation, atmosphere). Amy was also very patient, clear, open, and made me feel quite comfortable. I highly recommend her. Pros: Clean, Great Artists, Good Atmosphere, Patient, Cons: nope more

Go get one!! 5/9/2009

I heard about Tiger Lily through my boyfriend he has gone there for all of his tattoos and done by Amy. So I went there and now have two tats also done by Amy, she has done awesome work on both of us, and will be going back for alot more! Thanks so much. Pros: Awesome ppl to work with :) Cons: No ATM in building.. more

Highly recommented!!!! 2/26/2009

I've always wanted to get a tattoo and with my birthday's coming up I was recommended from my friends to check out the Tiger Lilly Tattoo shop. When I first enter the shop everyone's so friendly and welcoming, I felt so comfortable with the staffs. I brought some of my designs in and with Mike V as my tattoo artist, he directed me of what design I should get and where I should put it. The second days I went back and Mike shown me the design that he drew for me and it looks sick! and hella tight on my right arm too. As a first timmer getting a tattoo, I felt so comfortable and the pain and cost was not what I expected. It was painless and affordable. Pros: Friendly staffs more

Best Shop! 1/7/2009

Mike V. is awesome. I've gone in w/out any idea of what I wanted and come out stoked. He did peacock feathers on my forearm over a year ago and the color and detail are (still)perfect, I get compliments all the time! I'm not local in pdx anymore but he's always made time for me when I'm in town and has some really creative ideas. Definitely recommend Tiger Lilly! more

Great Shop! 12/2/2008

I got a tattoo back in June from Igor. I brought in a design a friend had drawn for me. Igor helped me change a few things I didn't like and even suggested a change I really loved. He was very nice (as was everyone I spoke to there) and my tattoo looks great. I'm definitely going back to Tiger Lilly for any more tattoos while I'm living in Portland. Pros: Friendly people, awesome art, knowledgeable staff Cons: Had to put a $50 deposit to make an appointment, street parking more

Mike V's a great Tattoo artist 11/19/2008

I got my first tattoo from Mike V, the day after Obama got elected. I went to atleast ten other tattoo shops before I stopped at Tiger Lily. The shop is OK and the music was OPB talk radio that sucked. But when I saw Mike V's portiflio I was stoked because I was looking for great new traditional and thats exactly what it was. I highly recommend him, he doesnt tax you on the price, the parking is easy, and this Shop was featured in Tattoo magazine 1/1/2009 and thats awesome to show off to your buddys with tattoos from artists who haven't been featured in the top tattoo magazine. more

a child tattoo 9/28/2008

my tattoo is not much to talk about . I hate what they made that they call art was not what I wanted and would not come to this shop. Pros: no Cons: art work more

First tattoo...AWESOME! 9/22/2008

Getting my first tattoo was huge...the tattoo as well as the experience. I needed something to memorialize my friend who had passed away and it had to be something I'd be proud to wear for life. (NOTE: I've avoided tattoos for all of my 39 years, even when gently prodded by the very best friend who passed.) After a ton of research I decided to walk into Tigerlily. I was greeted by Igor in a very clean and sterile setting that also had a fun vibe. Igor and another artist who was in the middle of a session helped me with ideas. They wisely advised me to pick something my buddy loved that could be incorporated into a tribute without making me sad every time I looked in the mirror. I settled on the FN 5.7 gun with his intials in the grip and smoke from the chamber spelling out EOW. When I was ready, Igor was out of the country but I felt a great connection with Amy and her work. I didn't want a cartoon look for obvious reasons. The day of the tat I was nervous as hell but she reassured me and explained everything from what I'd feel to the importance of breathing. She had a gentle and deft hand. Her shading and creative technique with the smoke letters blew me away. It took a little over 3 hours but I never felt overwhelmed or bored. The time passed quickly and I had fun cracking jokes with her. I've received tons of compliments on it, especially from those who have been inked more than once. It healed quickly, never scabbed and only peeled a tiny bit. If I ever decide to get another, it will be at Tigerlily. Pros: Talented, professional, fun and creative artists all around. Cons: Parking can be a bit sparse depending on the time of day. more

i was 50/50 on this place 7/27/2008

For my first tattoo experience it was mostly positive. The place was very clean and Igor worked with the design that my partner and I presented and helped to customize it. I didn't notice until a week later that part of the design was a little uneven. It was a Celtic knot so the real appeal is it's symmetry. It's very slight and not noticeable unless I point it out, but it is there. I know it doesn't detract from it's overall beauty, but because of this I wouldn't ever return to him for any future work or recommend him to anyone. An experienced artist will ocassionally make mistakes and yes, it was slight but also very permanent. I did go back to him and point it out. He noticed it also and told me it isn't something that he can fix. There are so many amazing artists in this city so make sure you shop around and find the right match for you. Pros: friendly artists Cons: artist made a permanent ''oops' more

Go to Igor! 7/25/2008

I had an incredible experience at Tiger Lilly for my first tattoo. Igor was absolutely incredible! I got a lotus flower on my hip and not only did Igor place it in perfect ""flow"" with the contours of my body, it also covered a surgical scar.\r \r Everyone who has seen it has told me that it looks more like a painting than a tattoo. There's no cheesy cartoonish tattoo feel to it; it literally looks like a work of art. Igor took my concept and made it better than I could ever have imagined. Pros: laid-back atmosphere, talented artist (Igor) Cons: cash only (but ATM across street in convenience store) more
