Welcome! I’m John Biswell of Made Rite Tattoo here in Portland, ME. My work is heavily influenced by both ukiyo-e prints and american folk art. I often draw compositions directly on the body (freehand tattoos). This helps me to create flow and to harness the creative energy of the process. My understanding of shape, movement, color, and form enable me to create the art you see here. I have been tattooing since 1993 and opened Made Rite in 2007. Email is the best way to contact me with your questions and project ideas.
