Aka Gonzo, He is a young apprentice with an old soul, who is currently learning his craft under Fritz. His favorite style is American Traditional, and he loves the bold look and colors that come with it. Despite currently holding another job, he plans to transition to tattooing full time in the near future. Jake is eager to learn and grow his skills. Currently, he is tattooing smaller designs from his flash sheets and some smaller custom work.
