Jacob Redmond began learning the trade of tattooing in 1997 in the trial-by-fire atmosphere of a busy street shop in a military town in Georgia. With a lust for travel, he then tattooed on the road for a year before moving to Portland. He settled at Atlas in 2010 but still finds inspiration by seeing the world. He regularly works in shops and at tattoo conventions around the globe, perfecting a thoughtful and skillfully crafted style with an unmistakeable visual impact. At home in Portland, Jacob races motorcycles and builds tattoo machines that he sells to discerning professionals world-wide.
