Artist Portfolios | Skot

Portland, Oregon Tattoo artist Skot OlsenSkot Olsen has been a professional artist for over 18 years. Skot was originally trained and achieved success as a published commercial illustrator. Skot then made a switch to fine art, showing paintings in galleries and museums across the U.S. and in Europe. His work began to get noticed by the growing community of tattoo artists and enthusiasts; they collected his paintings and published them in tattoo magazines. In the years that followed, Skot learned to tattoo and fell in love with the medium. He applies his knowledge of color theory, composition, and form to every piece he creates. When he’s not tattooing he’s hanging with Karla and Coco-Bear, their lovely Chow.
