Toby's wife Nisha schedules all of his appointments. You can start with a FREE consult and then Toby's workflow is: He will draw your tattoo design when he sees your name coming up on his calendar. He will draw up a rough sketch if you schedule an art check (for large projects only) and he will draw the more detailed design close to your scheduled tattoo appointment. He likes the content to be fresh.

To get him started on your project, schedule an appointment!

Toby has been tattooing since 2010. He started his tattoo career in the Bay Area and then moved with his family to continue this profession in Portland. Toby started his passion for art in Oregon, as a graffiti artist when he was a teen. Between that art form and this one he has taught art to children, done graphic and interior design, painted, drew, sculpted, carved, and etched, among so many other art related endeavors. He has had his sculptures featured at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Italy, the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, the 2010 Winter Olympics in Canada, at the "Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest Award Show" and on the "Queen Latifah Show".

Toby said he enjoys tattooing because, "I love working with and creating artwork with other people. I've created artwork in many other forms but this one is more lasting and personal." Toby has done most styles of tattoos but can't choose a favorite. "Any and all" is what he likes, though the other artists have called him, "the script master of the shop" and "the cover up King". Toby stays busy between his art and his family while always keeping his eye out for the next deal on airline tickets, so he can see more of the world.

I came here for my first ever tattoos, and am so grateful to whatever forces made sure that I walked in when Toby happened to be working. These tattoos are extraordinarily important to me, and I have no doubt that Toby understood that and honors that in every tattoo he does. I feel so fortunate.

I now have two pieces completed by Toby. I work as a touch/energy therapist. From my experience with my work I can vouch for Toby’s wonderful care of his clients. He is a gentle and loving spirit with an amazing ability to transform an artistic concept into a stunning and unique tattoo. His touch is caring and light and you can see his passion for his work shine. I trust his ability to craft a tattoo in the spirit of what I imagine and I would encourage you to give him as much creative freedom as you can with your piece. Every time I have given him freedom to express his artistic creativity with my tattoos he has blown my mind and left me extremely happy.

Great location, awesome people, & all the best vibes at Tattoo 34! I have three tattoos, all by Toby. He is an incredibly talented artist who is supportive, kind, & genuine. I am a tad bit indecisive (& I know that trait can be annoying) but Toby is very patient and puts 100% into his work. I will never get a tattoo from anyone else, Toby is the best!! He is my one and only tattoo artist!! I totally recommend Tattoo 34, excellent service and quality work!
