Matt Shaver

I started tattooing in 1997 after getting a BFA in painting from the University of North Texas in 1996. I broke in with Chance Webb at Custom Tattoos in Arlington, Texas. After learning the business, I traveled a bit and came to stay in the Portland area in 2001. I've been working at Pussycat since 2005. I pretty much like all styles of tattooing, but I get asked to do traditional Americana and Japanese a lot and I'm comfortable with the styles. As long as I get to do something cool for you, I'm happy!
