    I decided I wanted a sleeve tattooed. Purely aesthetic, I opted for a geometric pattern, partially in color. After viewing the artists at Icon, I determined Lucky Matthews' style of tattooing would be perfect for the piece I had in mind. I called Icon and spoke with a friendly, professional receptionist who helped me book a consultation with him. Upon arrival at Icon, I was struck by the open floor plan and friendly atmosphere. It had a welcoming, come as you are, non-judgmental feel to it. The place was well lit and clean, with hip-hop playing at a decent volume. There are 6 stations belonging to the respective artists. I met Lucky, and he seemed like that cool dad you used to know - nice, articulate, matter-of-fact, but idgaf attitude. He was very friendly when he spoke, but I could tell that he knew what he was good at, what he wasn't good at, and also that he wasn't afraid to say it. He was nice, but he told it like it is, and I respect that... some boundaries should be pushed, but not the ones your tattoo artist sets for himself. I came in with an idea, examples of what I liked, told him my budget, gave him artistic freedom, and we set a potential start date. When the day finally came around, I was presented with a beautiful design that was unique, but akin to the examples I liked. Now, I'm not much on conversation, and while we chatted about this and that during our sessions, most of them were spent with quiet concentration, which was quite nice. My sleeve took 20+ hours over several sessions. It was completed in a reasonable amount of time and came within budget. My sleeve is striking, and I get compliments daily. I will recommend Lucky at Icon again and again to anyone looking for new ink.

    I adore Melissa Baker and Icon Tattoo. I've gotten 3 tattoos from Melissa in the past 1.5 years and she did an incredible job transforming my ideas into permanent artwork. I've been getting tattooed since the age of 16, and Melissa is by far, the most detailed and caring tattoo artist that I've come across. She takes her time, especially when it comes to placement to ensure I am 110% in love with it before she starts inking. You can tell she is super attentive when it comes to her work while also ensuring her clients are comfortable. She is a true professional and it absolutely shows in the tattoos she's done on me. As a newer resident to the Portland-area, I am so glad I found Melissa! Icon Tattoo is truly a special place. I always feel so calm and comfortable during my sessions. The atmosphere, the ambiance, and most importantly, the entire crew here are exceptional and so kind. This is no ordinary tattoo shop - your experience here will be the best you've come across. I also want to mention that Icon is super clean, hygienic, warm, and safe. Thank you, Melissa & Icon, for always making my visits so exceptional!

    Great experience! The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Lucky showed great patience as we worked out my design and provided expert guidance on what would work best for what I wanted. My husband also got a tattoo the same day, and he was also extremely happy with Lucky's work. The studio was very clean, and it was apparent that the health of clients and co-workers was important to the staff. Don't hesitate to check them out! Get "Lucky"!

    I had a great experience with Laura. I provided several detailed ideas I had for a custom tattoo and she created such a great piece. I had a real nice time chatting w/ her and made my first tattoo experience a comfortable and enjoyable one. Much gratitude to her.

    Been to Icon a few times now, shop is always very clean and Lucky is easy to work with. Latest tattoo was much bigger than I've got in the past and I'm shocked how straight and precise he got the lines. Definitely would recommend.
