About Jay

Born in Ventura County, California, Jay's interest in art was ignited by spending weekends at his Grandparents home. His Grandmother was an accomplished artist, and Jay would sit next to her while she did art at night and emulated whatever she was doing. In the late 70's he moved to Oregon to a large Arabian horse ranch. It was later there in Oregon where he got his start in tattooing. Jay has tattooed all over the country from California to New York and in between. He has worked at well over 100 Tattoo Conventions, and 20 Sturgis Motorcycle Rallies over the years. In 2002 he moved to N. Idaho and considers it home. Jay is proficient in all styles of tattooing, but currently prefers to focus on Old School American Traditional Tattooing Taking him back to his roots. Jay is currently teaching about the History of Electric Tattooing as an Instructor on Guy Aitchison's Reinventing the Tattoo Online Course. The Tattoo History Course is Free.
