Courtney Roth | Tattoos | Illustrations | Portland, OR
I’m Courtney, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve been consumed with the desire to create and bring my visions to life. For the first few years of adulthood, I explored many paths, learned as much as I could, met many different kinds of people, and traveled to many different places, until I found what I had been looking for all along: my medium—tattooing—and my forested paradise—Portland, OR. My work is a love letter to our earth and the abundance of beautiful, strange, complex, wonderful life that we share her with. Each piece is a meditation on her seemingly endless intricacies and mesmerizing patterns. Botanicals have the power to ground us, to inspire us, to remind us what it's like to stand in a garden or a forest surrounded by our favorite flora. In a world that is trying harder to remove us from nature every day, I fight back by working with clients to make sure folks' connection to her is not lost but strengthened and revered. It’s an added bonus that I get to help folks feel confident in their physical bodies. It's an honor to do the work that I do. Thanks for being here.
