Tattoo artist Jay Joree has a talent for making portraits. They're not exactly the kind of portrait tattoos as you know of— they're better.
Award-winning tattoo artist Jay Joree caught our attention a number of times in the past with her portraits. But it wasn't until we saw a steady pattern in her designs that we really began noticing her awesome spin on portrait tattoos.
To former clients, Jay is the woman to go to when it comes to portraits with a double take. You see, Jay specializes in faceless portraits featuring memorable scenes or landscapes from whichever pop culture icon she's tattooing—be it a Tim Burton classic or a well-loved TV character like Doctor Who or Dexter.
We're going mad over her custom pieces as we are down for anything tattoo related with pop culture!
Jay works her magic through her distinct neo traditional style we're loving so much. The Texas-based tattooer definitely has an eye for elements, details, and subject play. She knows where to tone down the portrait and where to not let it fade out to the point of the landscape overshadowing it too much. She knows when enough is enough—a quality not all tattoo artists practice enough.
