Upcoming Guest Spots 
August 12th-13th & September 18th-19th


Shanghaied Tattoo
Astoria, OR

I grew up on the East Coast where I completed my Bachelors in Fine Arts degree in 2008. From there I took a road trip across the country and ended up in lovely Portland, Oregon where I learned to tattoo from Joe Newsom at Skin City in Tigard.


After 12 years at Skin City I've decided to open my own studio in NW Portland, Wildwood Tattoos. I work mainly in Neo-Traditional, Traditional, and Botanical tattoo styles.

When I'm not at my studio in Portland you can find me at guest spots across the country. Feel free to submit a tattoo request when I am nearby!

How do I schedule an appointment?

  • Please use the tattoo request form below to get started on scheduling an appointment. ​

  • I will reach out to schedule a time that works best for you!

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

  • Flash is generally priced ahead of time so you'll know what to expect!  The posted price is for arms, legs or upper back/shoulder blades, without tweaks or changes to the design.  I'm happy to accommodate other areas or change the size and adjust the price accordingly.

Is there a price minimum?

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

  • I only accept cash as a payment method


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 be taken out of 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

  • **if you schedule during a phone consultation with me I will take a deposit via card.  Balances are cash only**

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 will not be checked until the following day.

  • A cancelation 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.

What dates will you be at each location?

  • I will be at Shanghaied Tattoo in Astoria, Oregon on August 12th/13th as well as Sepetmeber 18th/19th
