Rachel Gilbert

Rachel Gilbert is originally from the Midwest and began tattooing in 2001 in Milwaukee, WI where she also graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a bachelors degree in Art History.

After working at several different types of shops in Milwaukee (and briefly co-owning the shop Tsunami Ink) Rachel relocated to Portland, OR in 2007 to pursue a career working exclusively on individually customized tattoos. While always open to new and interesting challenges, Rachel’s work tends to focus on a decorative/ornamental quality, bright color, and 3-dimensionality. She also enjoys tattooing fine art reproductions (especially surrealism and art nouveau).
