James started his journey in the tattoo industry back in 1997 at the age of 18. From the moment he received his first tattoo, James knew he wanted to make tattooing his career. Over the almost 23 years in the industry, James has spent all the time he could in perfecting and always expanding his knowledge for his craft. From the design, and application, all the way to customer service, James wanted to be the best he could be at all aspects of the tattoo industry. James still pushes himself everyday to learn new things everyday.
James is capable of every style of tattooing, but specializes in anything with bright colors and bold lines.
Outside of tattooing, James loves spending time with his wife, Aja Marie, and their daughter, Melody. He is a skilled musician, and you can find him on Sunday morning playing the drums at New Freedom Outreach Center in Berthoud, Colorado. He is also a motorcycle enthusiast.
