Hey there, I'm J.A. Watkins!
I've been on an incredible tattooing adventure for 21 years, and it all started in the heart of Houston, Texas, where I first picked up a tattoo machine. I've come a long way since then, and I'm excited to share a bit of my story with you. My artistic journey has taken me all over the world. From the bustling streets of London to the vibrant landscapes of South America, the diverse tapestry of North America, and the creative hubs of Europe, I've had the privilege of leaving my mark (literally!) in these incredible places.
When it comes to tattooing, I'm all about versatility. Whether you're into the timeless classics, the vibrant neo-traditional, the striking realism, the rich tapestries of Japanese art, or something entirely unique, I've got you covered. Tattooing isn't just my job; it's my passion. Aside from tattooing, I'm apart of the fascinating world of tattoo machine building. Crafting machines that are not just tools but also pieces of art has become a labor of love and a way to give back to the tattooing community.
These days, you can catch me doing what I love most in the charming town of Petaluma, California. It's here that I bring my years of experience and my love for tattooing to life, creating meaningful and memorable art for all my incredible clients. With over two decades of ink and adventure under my belt, I'm still as passionate as ever about the art of tattooing. Whether you've got a clear vision or need a little inspiration, I'm here to make your tattoo dreams a reality.
So, let's chat and see how we can make some ink magic together!
