For no.7 in our 5×5 series I’ve chosen Cheyenne Sawyer. Working out of the renowned Atlas Tattoo in Portland, Cheyennes work is a strong and incredibly solid mixture of classic traditional American, Japanese and Native American imagery. He’s also not afraid to tattoo an eye band across your face! You should also check out the previous 5 with Scott Move, Luxiano Street-Classic, Eterno8, Joe Ellis, Alex Boyko and Acetates.
