Having always been interested in art, along with conveniently getting his hands on some old tattoo magazines at an extremely early age- James was mimicking the images on his own by just middle school. He has come a long way from the 17 year old boy who tattooed his friends out of a beauty salon for practice, though. After some self-teaching and eventually years experience and learning in an actual tattoo shop under professionals- he has become a world-renowned tattooer whose work is praised by artists and collectors alike. 

While his portfolio is extensive, his portraits are especially phenomenal. We've rounded up some of our favorites below- so take a look, check him out on Instagram and keep an eye out for him at a convention near you.
