Inspiring Native American Tattoos by Cheyenne Sawyer

Cheyenne Sawyer uses his incredible understanding of Native American culture to create amazing tattoos.

As thought-provoking as they are inspiring, the tattoos of Sawyer are something everyone should see. Native American imagery, tradition and culture has been one of the biggest inspirations in western tattooing and remains so today. However, few tattoo artists have the understanding and respect for the culture like Cheyenne Sawyer. A print maker and painter turned into tattoo artist, Sawyer currently tattoos from Atlas, Portland, and is widely known for his Native American-inspired designs. With a bold traditional style, Sawyer draws great influence from decorative Native American arts and his tattoos reflect an incredible understanding.

The tattoos Sawyer is creating are beautiful, combining his dynamic traditional style with Native American patterns and imagery. Paying tribute to a traditional art form and people, the work of Sawyer is impressive.
