Honestly, before my idea had completely formed of what I wanted for a tattoo, I knew hands down I wanted John Biswell to create, compose and complete it. I’ve followed John’s work throughout the years, seeing countless gorgeous, original pieces on many friends and close acquaintances, and was so excited to see his shop, Made-Rite Tattoo & Clothing Co. appear in the heart of Portland, Maine’s Old Port.
I knew that I yearned for an aesthetically exciting and colorful piece placed roughly around or near my midsection, as I am a bellydancer, and am lovingly committed to showing and highlighting my midsection on the regular. I automatically booked an appointment to sit down with John Biswell, as I have been continually impressed by seeing on countless occasions, aesthetically gorgeous visuals to come out of such vague requests, such as “something colorful, exciting and around my midsection.” After about a year of planning with John, the idea of a “piece around my midsection” bloomed into a completely original work created uniquely for my body, beautifully enhancing my individual shape.
I honestly trust John’s eye, artistic ability and knowledge so much that after it was decided the rough idea of what I wanted, I left the rest completely up to him. This was the best decision I’ve ever made concerning a tattoo. It came out absolutely perfect, breathtaking and completely original. This piece is so uniquely John Biswell, from the directional curve of every feather to the most elaborate of color combinations.
I have such an appreciation for John Biswell as an artist, visionary and person. He is an absolute pleasure to work with, and I absolutely recommend him to all those looking for a completely unique, clean and custom piece of artwork!
