About the Author

As the proprietor of the legendary Sea Tramp Tattoo Company, Jeff Johnson has inked gangbangers, age-defying moms, and sociopaths; he's defused brawls and tended delicate egos. Ruggedly individualistic artists are part of the show, as is Johnson himself. As a veteran tattoo artist of over twenty years, he has a million tales of the tattoo demimonde. Johnson is a sharp-eyed master tattoo artist, and an extraordinary writer. He is the author of the memoir, Tattoo: Tall Tales, True Stories, and My Life in Ink and the forthcoming crime novel Lucky Supreme. He lives in Portland, Oregon.


Praise for Everything Under the Moon

"Here you will find a story that wants to bury you in its darkness at times, while at other times making you laugh so hard you can barely breathe. Here you will find an ending that takes that breath away again . . . I highly recommend Everything Under the Moon to fans of horror, especially those who like their darkness peppered with humor and occasional poignancy." --Horror After Dark

"This is the werewolf as you haven't seen it before: talking like a Richard Kadrey novel, walking through Charlie Huston's dark streets, and snarling like a Jim Harrison creature." --Stephen Graham Jones, author of Mongrels

"There's a whole world out there, that most of us never need to know about. A world of predators and prey, and predators who prey on predators. It's a dog eat dog world, and things are getting a bit hairy. It's Jeff Johnson's world, where the volume is always cranked up to eleven, the violence is cranked up to the max, and it's just one damned thing after another. The pace is fast, the plot is racing and restraint has been kicked into the gutter. And it's got werewolves. What more do you want?" --Simon R. Green, New York Times Bestselling author of Tales from the Nightside

Praise for Tattoo Machine

"Jeff Johnson is a gifted and natural born storyteller."--John Irving, Academy Award-winning author of The Cider House Rules

"Tattoo Machine is meticulously observed, savagely funny, and deeply compassionate. It's a tale of up-from-under redemption through the shadowed art of personal symbolism. Jeff Johnson is a sharp-eyed master tattoo artist and an extraordinary writer."--Katherine Dunn, author of Geek Love

"An amazing firsthand account of all things you wondered about tattoo shops. I loved it."--Gus Van Sant

"A wry, tender story about the tribulations of flesh and ink--and funny as hell. I've never understood why people get tattoos, but after reading Jeff's excellent book I may just get one myself." --Steve Dublanica, author of New York Times Bestselling Waiter Rant?

"For everyone out there who is as fascinated by skin art as much as I am, Jeff Johnson's memoir is a must read, a gritty, brutally honest account of his life and years in the tattoo business. Equally hilarious, alarming, heartbreaking, rebellious, and philosophical, Tattoo Machine gets inside your head and leaves an impression that goes deeper than any needle, one that will only be wiped away when you, dear customer, are dead and gone."--Donald Ray Pollock, author of Knockemstiff?

"Tattoo parlors are showcases for the socially disreputable, the brazenly nonconformist and the indelibly creative, all on display in this colorful memoir."--Publishers Weekly

"One of the best books I've read so far this year... a reading experience that transcends the subject matter."--Jeff VanderMeer

"Funny, outlandish, and sometimes disturbing..."--New York Post

"Astonishing candor and brilliant imagery."--London Free Press

"Absolutely fascinating."--Washington Post
