Tattoos By Jamie Macpherson

Hi! Thanks for coming to check out my work! I'm Jamie Macpherson. I've been drawing and painting all my life and tattooing since 1999. I am currently tattooing in Burnaby, BC Canada at the famous Dutchman Tattoos.
The tattoo world has allowed me to make art as a living and taught me so much about culture and art history. It has also allowed me to travel around the world and work with lots of like minded artists, mentors and meet some of the world's best tattooers.
I mostly focus on large scale custom works, focusing on getting exactly what the client wants and coming up with the strongest artistic arrangement of those elements. I usually sketch up a preliminary thumbnail design before tackling the finished design so that I can collaborate more easily with my clients, after all I am offering you a service, not a product.
I love my work and my goal is to make sure everyone leaves my shop with a smile. I happily offer a free consultation, and look forward to meeting you!

The journey continues. Tattooing around the legends

It has been a privilege and an honour to be working alongside some of the greatest tattooists in the world including some real legends.  I've been learning so much and rethinking how I approach all my work.  Here's some of my newest work

Some new tattoos

I've been working at Dutchman tattoos for the past two years and haven't had much time to post stuff but I'll try to keep up a bit more.  Here's a few peices I've been working on.

   Almost ready to launch my new webpage "Digital Demigods"!  I've been working on a series of Therianthropes and sacred math based artworks in multiple mediums, from digital, oil on canvas, even silk screens on t-shirts.  From years of studying art history through tattooing and reference research, I am unifying cultural themes, masks, beings even symbols to show that we are all telling the same complex story.
  I have been especially interested in our ancestors and their ancient wisdom traditions, building complex structures that cannot be explained with modern methods, and the idea that maybe we were more technologically advanced than the history books have led us to believe.  
   I hope my art will inspire others to think outside the box and at the very least, give the viewer something interesting to look at.   I will be tattooing some of these complex concepts in a simplified form to anyone interested.  You can email me here:   and I will do my best to reply to anyone intersted.   Also I have some T-shirts for sale here:
