Jamie Grav is our little ray of sunshine. His wit is almost as sharp as his needles. With his winning personality, and talent to match he finds his appointment book full of repeat customers as well as some new faces.
Jamie has been tattooing since 2006. He has worked his ass off for Matt, working his way up from a counter person to a full blown artist in no time flat!
Jamie has a very unique approach to each tattoo, with his bachelors degree in graphic design, and strong influence in fine art, Jamie sees each tattoo as his next masterpiece. Jamie likes to pride himself as a “jack of all trades” in the tattoo world, but of course he has his favorite styles. Illustrative, evil black and gray, realism, portraiture, and neo-traditional are some of his faves.
Jamie credits several different artists for his success, some that inspire him from afar, and others that have been hands-on in his career. Geno Cole, and Matt Thrash have been instrumental in lifting Jamie up to the level he is at now. Other artistic infulences include Tim Steele, Mel Spinar, Norman Gamble, Ruben Pinero, and his adorable hairless dog, Skeeter.
Outside of the shop Jamie has probably killed you or your 13-year-old in Call of Duty online. When he’s not blowing things up on the internet, you can find Jamie painting, drawing, shopping, or taking little Skeeter-man to the dog park.
