It is said that Oregonians have more body art per capita than any state in the union. Bob Baxter and his wife, Mary Gardner, have carefully vetted and selected forty-four of the best shops out of hundreds in their home state in order to expand and improve their already vast online tattoo shop directory. Spending three months on the road and traveling nearly a thousand miles, they visited each location, interviewed the owners, and photographed the shops' finest and most loyal clients. The result is the fifth installment in the Tattoo Road Trip series, a captivating, regional tattoo compendium and day-by-day account of the couple's adventures on the road in the Beaver State, from top to bottom, along the coast and inland. This one-of-a-kind collection of tattoos and tattoo artists is an essential component to the enthusiast s understanding of the tattoo scene in this majestic Pacific Northwestern state."
