Tattoos by Caitlynn

I was born on the East Coast and I earned my BFA degree in 2008. From there, I took a road trip across the country and ended up in lovely Portland, Oregon. I learned to tattoo from Joe Newsom at Skin City in Tigard. 

 

After 12 years at Skin City, I opened Wildwood Tattoos in NW Portland in 2020. I loved my little shop and my clients, who became family over the years! The east coast was calling me home though, so I just took another big huge road trip back. You can follow my IG @tattoosbycaitlynn to see what guest spots I have coming up!

f.a.q.

How much does it cost to get a tattoo?

  • Prices vary greatly depending on style, size, and placement, the best way to obtain an estimate is to schedule a consultation with me.  You can use my tattoo request form to get on my list

  •  For a very rough idea, a post-it note-sized piece will be $160 - $200. A hand-sized piece is generally $300 - $500

Is there a price minimum?

  • Yes, the shop minimum is $100. Per person, per tattoo.

How old do I have to be to get tattooed?

  • To get tattooed, you must be 18+

Can I get tattooed if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

  • You cannot get a tattoo while pregnant or breastfeeding

 

Do I have to leave a deposit?

  • Yes, I require all clients to leave a $100 deposit when making their appointment to be tattooed. This deposit goes toward the price of the tattoo

  • If the tattoo requires more than one session, your deposit will go toward the last session

  • Deposits are nonrefundable

  • If the appointment needs to be rescheduled, 48 hours notice must be given or the deposit will be forfeit.  Less than two day's notice does not give me time to schedule someone else and prepare additional artwork. 

Will I get to see my drawing ahead of time?

  • The short answer is no.  I draw in order of when designs are due, and you'll see your design when you come in for your appointment, at which point minor changes can be made if necessary.  

  • My one exception is if we're starting a large project such as a full sleeve or back piece.  Then we can schedule a second consultation so you can check out a draft of the concept before I finalize it.

What do I do if I have to cancel my appointment?

  • In order to cancel or reschedule an appointment, you must call the shop during business hours or contact Caitlynn directly.

  • Please note that all messages left after 8 pm EST will not be checked until the following day.

  • Cancelations must be made 48 hrs before your scheduled appointment for your deposit to be transferred to a new date.

  • More than one reschedule requires a new deposit.

  • All deposits are non-refundable.
     

Can I bring a friend?

  • In order for me to give you my full focus and attention, and do the best artwork I can for you, it's best if you come to your appointment alone.  If you feel like you'll need a distraction you're welcome to bring headphones and catch up on your favorite shows or zone out with your favorite music.

How can I best prepare for my tattoo?

 

Leading up to your tattoo session you should:

  • Stay hydrated

  • Moisturize the night before (not the day of)

  • Trim if you have a lot of hair where you’ll be getting tattooed

  • Exfoliate a day or two before (not the day of)

  • Rest

  • Eat

  • Bring snacks (for longer sessions)

  • Reschedule if you’re injured or sick
     

What not to do before a tattoo session:

  • Tattoos won’t heal well on freshly damaged skin, so anything which causes damage to the skin must be avoided. 

  • That includes getting a tan, a fake tan, a sunburn, a chemical peel, or any cuts or scrapes.

On the day of the session you should:

  • Come alone to your appointment

  • Dress appropriately and comfortably. Prepare for a long session and dress accordingly. Avoid tight and constricting clothing. Pay some mind to where you will be getting tattooed and make sure the clothing you wear leaves the area easily accessible.

  • Be sober

  • Do not use any numbing balms or topical creams on the area being tattooed on the day you are getting the tattoo
     

What health precautions are you taking?
 

  • The studios where I am doing guest spots each have their own health precautions, so please check in with me directly or check out their websites for up-to-date information.

  • If you are sick, even if it's just a cold, please contact me to reschedule.  I will do the same for you if I think I might be sick.
