Though he’s a big fan of portraiture, Jake’s portfolio is as varied as they come. Having worked at our sister studio Harry Flashmans in Chelmsford for a number of years, Jake is fast becoming one of the most in-demand tattoo artists in Essex.

Jake’s biggest influences are Lianne Moule, Chris Crooks, Luka Lajoie and Ray Johnson. He’s also been lucky enough to spend time with Jason Butcher. When he’s not tattooing, he’s watching films, listening to music and pouring over Japanese art.



Jim first became intrigued by tattoos when he used to visit family down on the South Coast as a child. He used to walk past a tattoo studio with designs in the window, and he’d study them, memorise them, then go home and draw the images he’d seen on her younger sister!

After a brief stint in the building trade after leaving school, Jim realised he was in the wrong job. He completed his tattoo apprenticeship and travelled throughout the USA, the Caribbean, Asia and mainland Europe to perfect his bold, colourful style.

His influences include Robbie Williams, Mark Ryden, Tex Avery, Joe Capobiano and Aaron Cain.



Aimee has accomplished an array of artistic qualifications; Fine arts and a degree in animation inclusive.

Aimee is a hair/fashion model and has been in the tattoo industry circa 2016. She dedicates herself to Pop culture designs; both photorealistic and cartoon based. Her main influence has always been rooted from everyone's beloved Disney classics, as well as the occasional game of Zelda and Pokemon.

"I would like to one day be well known for the birth of an artistic movement I call 'Phototoonism'; a mix of photorealism with our personal favourite cartoon characters. The cartoon character I feel I resonate with the most is Invader Zim; as I am a tiny thing with a lot of passion for my quest to invade the planet that is the tattooing industry" *Ensue evil laugher here*​"
