Northwest News: Meet Newest Team Member Josh Birch!

Finding the right support staff for our growing company is of utmost importance to insure we offer our clients the best experience possible at any of our 3 locations around the globe. With that said, we would like to introduce you to the newest member of our Northwest Team, Josh Birch. We sat down with Josh to ask him a few questions, but we encourage everyone to stop by the shop when you get the chance to meet in person and say hi as you book that next appointment!



Tell us about yourself, where are you from, how old are you, what do you do for fun?

Hello everyone, my name is Josh Birch,  I grew up in La Crosse Wisconsin, moving to Grants Pass Oregon in 1998. I am 34 years old and enjoy golfing, camping, barbecues, and going to the river. I spent most of my twenties in the Salt Lake City area before returning to Grants Pass in 2009.  

How has your time at Off the Map been for you so far?

Off the Map has been a great experience so far, everyone has been so nice.  The opportunity to see amazing artwork and meet these artists is awesome!

Tell us a little about your interest in the world of tattooing.

I have been fascinated by tattoos since I can remember. I vividly remember being in first grade and coming home from school covered in temporary tattoos. My conservative parents were horrified to see me look that way.  Only encouraging my fascination even further. I got my first tattoo, a terrible tribal tattoo on my back , in the nineties.  December of 2013 my front torso was outlined by Jeff Gogue. My taste for fine art and strong graphic subject matter has drwn me to Jeff's work for years. The opportunity to work along side him and the rest of the incredibly talented team at Off the Map is truly an honor.

Anything else you would like to close with?

In closing I would just like to say thanks to Gabe and Mary back in East Hampton, their insight and advice has been invaluable. I cant wait to help change clients lives through inspiring tattoo's and art.

Thanks Josh! Like we said, stop in to meet Josh in person as he will be fulfilling the full time management position in Grants Pass and will be handling many of the resposibilities with scheduling and the like. Also, don't forget, you can review us on GoogleYahoo, or Facebook, then send a link of your review to and you'll automatically be entered to win a $50 Gift Certificate!!! So stop in, say hi, get tattooed and let us know what you think! We'll see you soon!!!
