Jay enjoys doing new school and illustrative tattoos. He also has a passion for custom lettering and watercolor inspired tattoos. Jay has been inspired by such artist as Kelly Doty, Tanane Whitfield, and Russell Van Schaick.

towards art. I can’t remember a time that art wasn’t important to me. At the age of 12 I went into my
first tattoo shop and knew from that moment that I wanted to be a tattoo artist. I started my
apprenticeship in late 2009 and became a licensed artist in 2010. In late 2010 I moved to Columbia,

haven’t been happier. Every artist here pushes everyone else to strive for the best possible tattoo
