Like mosts artists who pursued tattooing, Jesse Rix fondly remembers being hooked into art from a young age. Back to the time when his mother was teaching his young self to draw elephants and taking in their boy's artistry. “They always told me I was talented,” Jesse shares. It wasn't something he put much thought then, all he knew was that he really enjoyed creating art. But it only goes to show that having supportive parents goes a long way as well.

Fast forward years later, Jesse Rix is now an accomplished tattoo artist who have won awards through his years of tattooing. Tattooing have pushed him to strive to be a better artist than he was yesterday. It's a competitive industry and he's not going to get carried away in a current of many other deserving talents.

Jesse started out by the inadvisable way of buying his own kit and then tattooing mates who would oblige. Realising this, he soon went on the hunt for an apprenticeship—which didn't turn out the way he hoped it would. His would-be mentor turned out to be “a crackhead who would do $40 tattoos and leave me at the shop so he could go on drug runs.” Jesse eventually found his way in the tattoo scene and become the man he is today.

Jesse's strong point is realism. It's what he does best—be it in color or in black and grey. With time, he developed his own flavor to set his works apart from the rest.He currently tattoos in his own shop, Jesse Rix Tattoos, in Keene, New Hampshire.

But what we love the most about Jesse's works is how he takes hyperrealistic tattoos to the next level with his signature spin. He refers to them as “3D space tattoos.”

It's this illusion he creates on skin, forming the image of brick-like indentation on skin resembling some kind of portal to a whole new galaxy inside you.

What does Jesse have to say to aspiring artists? “Learn as much as you can. Watch videos and techniques from artists you admire, study what they do, take seminars; and never stop learning,” he tells InkFreakz.
