I’m Jamie Macpherson. I’m a tattoo artist, and illustrator and have been drawing and painting all my life and tattooing since 1999. I am currently tattooing in New Westminster, BC Canada at my private studio Hidden Dragon.
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 in their tattoo studios. I specialize in Japanese style tattoos which are usually all done on a large scale and am working towards more full bodysuits.

With my digital art and surreal paintings, 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 of visionary art, surreal art, psychedlic art, sacred geometry, symbols and mystical art 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.
If you are living in or just visiting Vancouver, bc, Canada, come to my tattoo studio for a visit even if just to check out our art gallery, or say hi!
here’s some pics of works by Jamie Macpherson from all over the globe:
Thanks so much for popping by and for the follow! I’ve browsed through your work and it’s amazing! You’re very talented! “We’re all in this together!”…I couldn’t agree more. 🙂
I noticed you came by place (blog) and liked it. Thank you! I browsed a bit here as well and I agree with your observation that we are all telling or trying to tell the same story – and the words get in the way. Our ego’s think we are saying something profound but we are really only passing on a truth. For me, that truth is that love is the only law in the universe – and with that in mind we are all brothers /sisters – in it together!
Thank you for listening to my story!!! I gotta keep in perspective that we are all making it up as we go.
your work is amazing!
