Joe Bass is by far one of the most amazing talented artest I've ever had the honor to do buisness with & the ONLY. Artist I will go to from now on to complete my artistc bodyworks..what seperates Joe from the other great artists out there is something so very unique & special, not only is his artistic abilities above and beyong excelent, Joe has that special unique, almost seemingly psychic ability to get into his patrons head to co-colaberate on what you vision is..he listens to your story, your centiment, no matter how simple or complex and he nails it completely! And that's an attribute I've only ever seen a couple artist be able to achieve but joe does it to perfection with just that extra step beyond. I feel joe one day soon will become one of the world most renowned artists of america if not the world, his creative visions are where ever you want them to be, inside the box or out, grounded or beyond the cosmos. I have a few pieces of Joes work that I wear proudly and with honor & can't wait for more! He is truelly passionate about his work and to get work done by joe , well, its a great experience and you will never be disapointed..and I gaurentee you won't leave with out shedding at least one tear for the greatness you will forever wear with pride! In short, hands down, Joe Bass is the absolute Best! Artistically & in understaning what you want..even if you can't describe it, he will get into your head..and blow your mind! Joe you're a gift to this world & I wish you nothing but greatness and success! You deserve it and your talant is one that shall be remembered right there with those of the greatest like Dahli & rembrandt etc etc..that's really how I feel... =)"
Joe is amazing. I have known him for a few years since he worked out of another shop and his work, attention to detail, and style are incredible. Not to mention Joe is an all around nice guy which is rare in an industry with people who can sometimes be a bit pretentious to clients. Joe makes you feel right at home, works hard to create what you want while still adding his own flair to it. I trust Joe to work on me without hesitation and we are actually starting a massive cover up piece on my back. I cannot recommend him enough."
Joe is fortunately my first and only tattoo artist. His creativity was able to turn my scattered ideas and sketches into an incredible work that I am more than happy with. He has a real attention to detail and knows that its the smallest of details that make a good tattoo a great tattoo. Clean, professional, and likable. Joe is the only artist I will trust with any of my future work and I highly recommend him. "
If you have ever had previous tattoo work done and you are looking fora new artist because you just moved to portland, or if you haven't ever had work done before and you are thinking aobu tgetting a tattoo Joe is your man. He has a gentle touch and makes me feel relaxed and comfortable in the work he's doing. PLus his attention to detail adds to his unique style. YOu will not be dissapointed!"
Joe/Jenna are my family so of course i think they are great..However I never knew just HOW talented they ALL are. I live in INDY and plan on road tripping for a tattoo. Driving to Portland form Indy..now that is a hell of a haul for mediocre work.....joe is incredible as my fav cousin however there aren't words to describe the beauty and splendor of his skills! There is no one else like him! Love you Joe!!"
Joe is such a gifted artist! I came to him with an idea for a half sleeve that I wanted. He has taken that idea and literally run with it. He took my original idea and translated that so beautifully into what is now an absolutely stunning, beautiful and personal story on my arm. His attention to detail, creativity and vision are things I'm excited to wear! And aside from all of that? He's pretty rad to hang out with for a few hours."
In almost twenty years of knowing Joe Bass, he has always shown himself to be a stellar individual. Reliable, kind, good humored and talented- ii you are going to let someone poke you with needles for hours at a time and leave you with life-long markings, those are the qualities you want that person to have. Joe has all that and more. "
Let's put it this way...I went across the country to get my tattoo done by Joe. At the time it was to be my last,but as we all know tattoo ink is addictive- so I'm working on getting my funds to fly from DC back out to Portland to get more work done by the man himself. He's not only an awesome artist, but one of the coolest people I have ever met."
I absolutely recommend Joe. He took the inkling of an idea I had for my tattoo and improved upon it exponentially. When I told him I wanted to work in a falling star that was seen in the sky the night my Father passed away, he took time to go on youtube and find the exact one I was talking about. Absolutely amazing!"
I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with Joe, and I find him to be a stand-up guy, exceptional tattoo artist, and to be very engaging with his clients."
Joe is incredibly talented! I have a piece that he's been working on, in the beginning I was really unsure of what my vision was and I only really knew what I wanted it to symbolize. Joe brought it to life in the most perfect, beautiful way! I'm very excited to get it finished and have this piece for the rest of my life. :)"
Joe has to be the most talented Tattoo Artist I have met! He covered an old tattoo for me and touched up another and it was way more than I ever expected! He sees things others don't when it comes to creating art on the body and completely recommend him :)"
Every visit to see Joe is an exciting experience. After I got a tattoo from him I decided I didn't ever want to go anywhere else because his work is spectacular. I tell everyone who wants a tattoo to go to him!"
I knew Joe before he was a tattoo artist, and he was passionate about it then. I have seen his work and I highly recommend him for his work and dedication to his dreams. He puts his heart and soul into any job that he does. "
I'd recommend Joe to anyone. He's got a great vision and a good touch with a gun not to mention that he's a great guy to spend an afternoon or an evening with. "
Joe is an excellent person as well as a true professional and exceptional artist. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin."
I have worked with Joe now for the better part of three years. He is easy to do buisness with, communicates well and follows through on his promises."
More than your average tattoo artist. An all around nice guy with a beautiful family. Money well spent. And amazing work! I love every piece that Joe has done for me. "
Quality person quality work!! Nuff Said now get some ink fool!"
Joe is one of the coolest people I've ever met in my life. And, I've met some pretty cool people. I don't have any tattoos myself. But, if I ever needed some ink...the choice is clear!"
Amazing amazing talent , amazing !!!! Need I say more ? True talent can't wait for my next tattoo , yah "
All around great guy. Trustworthy to any degree. "
