Jeremy is a young tattoo artist (check his work here). He once ran into Spanish new school star Victor Chil in a street and he managed to find a space for Jeremy in his busy booking schedule. The result is a cool skull tattoo on his neck which he is very proud of. Planning to move to Paris, Jeremy is looking for a new place to go on his learning of tattoo art. He just had a nice chat with French master Dimitri HK so we're wishing him good luck!
