Jeff Johnson's Tattoo Machine

Portland tattoo artist and memoirist Jeff Johnson will be here on Tuesday, Aug. 4th at 7 pm to read from and discuss his recently published book, Tattoo Machine: Tall Tales, True Stories, and My Life in Ink, published by Spiegel and Grau in July. A professional tattooist for eighteen years, Johnson is the co-owner and operator of Portland’s legendary Sea Tramp Tattoo Company. Discussing everything from his days as an apprentice to some of the greatest inkers in the trade to the incredibly vivid nightly spectacle over which he presides, Jeff Johnson has written a sometimes riotous, sometimes harrowing, and always riveting memoir about what it means to be on the front lines of a global art revolution.
