13 Years Experience
Jesse has been tattooing for 12 years. He grew up in a family-owned tattoo shop watching his Uncle Gregg, and his cousin Marky tattoo; inspired by their artwork Jesse became passionate about learning to tattoo and start professionally tattooing at the age of 14 as part owner of his own shop. Jesse stayed up long nights and with great determination knew that he could never give up on his dream to be like his uncle and cousin. He was also inspired by Tattoo legends, Jose Lopez, Mister Cartoon, and Corey Miller. He stayed up many nights researching different techniques and many different artists. Seeking inspiration from other artists, he knew he would never stop learning and believed that once you give up on learning and bettering yourself then you give up on being an artist. Jesse feels that although he is capable of tattooing any style of art he most enjoys fine-line black and grey photorealism and original artwork.
