I am Jake Steele, I fell in love with tattoos 9 years ago and am still obsessed. I Started my career in rural southwestern Pennsylvania after being introduced to the tattoo community through the underground punk rock/hardcore music scene in Pittsburgh, PA. I started hanging around tattoo shops and teaching myself the craft after observing mentors and shaped my clientele around my music career. I consistently put myself out there with hundreds of solo/group art shows and concerts from 2009 till 2016 in southwestern PA. I attended the University of Pittsburgh and graduated with a bachelor’s in visual and performance art studies in 2014 while I was still pursuing tattooing part time. I then started painting more often, and tattooing in some of the best custom studios in my area and had given everything else up to be a full time artist. After that, I began traveling the country for some of the most prestigious events in the United States such as the Empire State Tattoo Convention in NY, the Golden State Tattoo Expo in Pasadena, CA, the Philadelphia Tattoo convention, among many others taking seminars and entering my work in competitions to progress my craft. I moved to Los Angeles California in 2017 to work for about a year before deciding to move again to South East Florida where I’ve been ever since. I consistently strive to better myself and bring my clients the best work possible. My two favorite styles to tattoo are cartoon and realism. I love working with people and I’m passionate about what I do. 90’s nostalgia, nerdy video games, and cartoons are my favorite subject matters. I do custom work and can bring your vision to life.
