Esoteric Tattoo was founded in 2015 by Dominick McIntosh. After spending nine years tattooing in the Portland metro area, Dominick sought to create a space that reflected both his artistic vision and what he loved about the city and its weirdo denizens. Our parlor is modest, intimate, and designed for the sole purpose of creating lasting art. Our tattoo family pushes the boundaries of possibility and acceptance, in an attempt to broaden the appreciation of the tattoo collector.
"One who has control over the mind is tranquil in heat and cold, in pleasure and pain, and in honor and dishonor; and is ever steadfast with the Supreme Self."
Our shop is small, our time is limited, and every tattoo we do is treated with the utmost respect and importance. We emphasize quality over quantity, and tattoos take as long as they have to. When you understand tattoos, you realize that they are worth the wait, worth the pain, and worth the expense.
