Trout Tattoo (Pedro Dorsey~Portland, OR)

Trout Tattoo by Pedro Dorsey

Trout Tattoo by Pedro Dorsey

Several years ago, when the idea coalesced in my mind to get a tattoo of a trout on my forearm, I researched ink artist in Portland and came up with two that seemed to have some experience with freshwater fish (sans Koi). First, I went to the Optic Nerve parlor in NE Portland. I took a look at his work and noted an excellent rendition of a Chinook Salmon. Cool! I thought. I started to make an appointment…two months to see Pedro…then probably another four months til the work would be done. Being an only child and possessed with a twinge of immediate gratification syndrome from somewhere…I said adios. I headed to my backup and equally qualified…Jerry Ware…booked and done in two months. Now, if Pedro is so good that he is booked up for months on end…so be it. So, here is his offering to our trout tattoo gods…I could not copy the work….so I photo’s it and a bit of piracy aside…there it is… not adequate I know…so check out Pedro at the Optic Nerve site for a better glimpse of his Trout/Trucha…as usual the thumbnails do not do justice to the works of these artists, so sorry for the quality of the pic.
