Infinity Tattoo was started by Amanda Myers in 1993 after she apprenticed and worked for 3 years at Don Deaton’s Sea Tramp Tattoo Co.
Portland, Oregon in 1993 was an extremely different landscape when it comes to the tattoo scene, and Amanda wanted to create something new and fresh, custom art work in a clean and welcoming space with a little girlie energy was hard to find, especially in a street shop.
With only a handful of tattoo shops in the Portland area, she had the opportunity of offering something different to the public. With a small crew of newbies, Infinity opened on East Burnside and 22nd avenue. It sure was a different neighborhood then! After several years of sole proprietorship, Amanda’s husband Paul Zenk joined the team and took up as partner and artist.
Infinity has seen an enormous amount of talent and friendship within it’s walls. Many fine men and women tattooers have come and gone through the years, some have remained with us to this day. After 8 years on Burnside, Paul and Amanda, with Alice Kendall in tow, moved the whole operation to a small private studio behind their house in North Portland. With it’s high ceilings and skylights, hidden behind a magical garden, the tiny shop had a special hidden away gem of a feel. Hidden maybe ,but slow not. after almost 4 years there, Infinity outgrew the little garden spot and moved into a nice shiny big space just 1 block away.
Infinity remains here presently, busy as ever with the energy and excitement of people getting tattooed for the first time or the 100th. having fun and being excited and inspired by each other and our huge family of clients is what makes us all tick here at Infinity.
Amanda and Paul continue to operate Infinity together,with a shared commitment not only to their clients, but to their community as well. Yearly charitable fundraisers and donations to local schools and non-profit organizations are a way Infinity can give back and help others. We rock
