Jay knocked out the second session on this cool floral sleeve, today!! Still a ways to go, but coming along nicely!

Jay is an award winning artist from Connecticut, with 23 years of professional tattooing under his belt. Having done his first tattoos at just 12 years old, he sought out an apprenticeship at the age of 17, and hasn’t looked back since. In 1999, Jay moved to Florida and continued to perfect his craft, working alongside some of the biggest names in the industry, and has been featured in several magazines. After 17 years in the sun, Jay has found himself back in Connecticut. Working here at Paper City Tattoo. While Jay is known for his bold and bright use of color, he is very proficient in many styles, and can always come up with great tattoo ideas. When asked what he likes to tattoo the most he says, “Skulls and zombies, but I don’t get to do them often enough, so really anything I think is a great concept, or a challenge.” Jay is continually trying to push his tattooing to higher levels, and is always eager to learn new techniques or styles, from artists he meets and works with along the way. So be it black and grey, full-blown color, fine line, or realistic, Jay has you covered!
