Dan Gilsdorf specializes in bold, solid work rooted in the time-honored traditions of classic American and Japanese tattooing. He was interested in tattoos from a very early age, giving himself his first tattoo by hand at the age of 15. Dan started working professionally in Boulder, Colorado in 1992 and relocated to Portland in 1997 in order to open Atlas Tattoo with Jerry Ware and Jennifer Billig. Dan's primary mission in life is to provide good tattoos to interesting people.
