Jesse began his apprenticeship under shop owner/artist Brian Smith in March of 2010. Jesse was a career-changer and a lifetime artist. He grew up a graffiti artist in an artist family. "Tattooing is quickly becoming my new medium of choice!" He now lives in Kingston, NY and continues to draw and paint even outside of the shop.
