Jake holds a professional background in printmaking where he honed his talents and developed his distinct artistic style. He made the switch to pursuing his tattoo career in the fall of 2021 and completed his apprenticeship under mentor Joe Wood in late 2023. Jake set his sights on bold traditional tattoos that are influenced by historical turn of the century tattooing mixed with the punk rock and skate culture of his youth. His focus is American traditional tattooing and the historical significance of classic tattoo symbolism. His laidback style and friendly demeanor makes him perfect fit to our team. We are excited to have him as part of the crew here at North Street!
