John Schmidt has been tattooing and living in the Great Pacific Northwest for years. Coming back from San Diego to his hometown of Hood River, he began an apprenticeship. After 2 years in the Gorge he came to Beaverton and began tattooing at the current location (Tattoo 42). John works in illustrative, traditional, Japanese, new school/neo traditional, realistic/portrait, or anything you can throw at him. 8 years or so later John continues to put as much as he can into every tattoo of every size. Come in Friday through Tuesday noon till eight pm to see John.
