Jack has been tattooing since 1993. He has been published in multiple magazines and has won several awards for his tattooing. Jack does truly enjoy doing all styles, though he is most well-known for his photorealistic black and gray. He believes that the customer should have a good idea of what they want, but is more than willing to help them realize their full vision. All in all, Jack thinks the tattoo should be a fun, positive experience, and does his best to offer that to all of his clients.
