Jerotattoo77 is a tattoo artist working at Penny Black Tattoo Parlour in Brentwood, UK. He is bold and uncompromising in both his artwork and his approach to tattooing. He can often be found drawing and tattooing erotic/fetish/bondage designs.

Jero is a perfectionist and will work with you to create a tattoo that you will love for a lifetime.

Jero is skilled at a wide variety of tattoo styles. He specializes in traditional, blackwork and trash polka tattoos. His versatile artwork features both bold lines and fine lines; whip shading and realistic shading without outlines. He can deliver both precise blackwork and bright, powerful colour.

Jero specialises in:

TRADITIONAL tattoos: pay tribute to the origins of tattooing in symbolism, especially with old school nautical themes. Classic traditional tattoos include pin-ups, mermaids, anchors etc. They typically incorporate bold lines and solid colors.

BLACKWORK tattoos: bold body art rendered in solid planes of black ink. Usually these tattoos are composed of abstract patterns and geometric shapes, although some feature figurative forms and recognizable scenes and subjects. Blackwork can include tribal designs, calligraphy and bold graphic pieces.

TRASH POLKA tattoos: The style resembles a fine art collage that combines realistic images with smears, smudges, and kinetic designs that create a discordant, chaotic energy in the piece. Trash polka typically uses red and black but may incorporate other colours. Examples include natural forms or photorealistic images interrupted by dotwork, geometric patterns and text.
