What I Create

My tattoo style specialty is portrait realism, but I enjoy all aspects of tattooing and will work with you to make sure your next tattoo is immaculate in both style and execution.


Large portrait pieces that mimic real objects or people as much as possible. Fine shading and detail, this tattoo style will take the longest and is the most difficult to pull off well. Memorialize a loved one or get a portrait of your favorite character. 


Cartoonish and wacky, featuring caricatures and other exaggerated figures. If you’re the sort of person who likes their body art injected with the spirit of Ren and Stimpy, Star Wars, or SpongeBob then this comic style is for you


This style combines elements of watercolor painting and abstract surrrealist art. Paint splatters, graphic blackwork, and anything miscellaneous dominate this genre. These tattoos look like a unique painting  on your body

The Tao of Jake

““My people are my life. I am truly blessed and humbled by the love I’ve been shown with my tattooing. I consider my clients my family. I was raised to treat others the way I would like to be treated so I make it a point to welcome everyone into my tattoo family.”

Client Testimonials

Don’t take my word for it – here’s what my clients say:

Jake is the only person that I will let tattoo me. Not only is he an immaculate professional, his positivity and humor make the tattoo session fun and less painful. I have now had over 100 hours in the chair with him. There is not a better person to hang out with while getting stabbed a million times. 


Star Wars Sleeve

Jake has done all three of my tattoos and they all are perfectly what I expected. Always checks with me on what I want and like as we go threw. Manages to keep it professional while maintaining a laid back goofy vibe making me always feel trusting with him. I recommended him to Everyone who has asked and get compliments constantly. I will be going back for my fourth soon !


Elephant Rose

As soon as I stepped in for my appointment, Jake made me feel right at home. The shop is amazing and filled with the best people. Jake provided such friendly service and let me choose my colors and let me join in on the designing process. Overall, it was just an amazing experience for my first tattoo. Of my 5 tattoos now, Jake has done 4 of them and will continue to be my go-to artist.
