Check out our studio visit with designer and tattoo artists Winston the Whale

Earlier this year we were introduced to Dave, aka Winston the Whale’s, wholly unique, 3D inspired, tattoo designs. Smitten with his clean symmetrical lines, nod to vintage tattoo flash, and bright AF color palate, we invited him to create some designs for us. The wolf mug is the first Winston the Whale design to grace Stumptown wares. Affectionately nicknamed the acid wolf mug, these heavy duty diner mugs are hand screened in Portland, OR. We caught up with Dave at his studio which is saturated with retro, bright colored ephemera amidst inks and plants. Sketches of tattoo designs cover the walls.
