Jesse started tattooing in 1993 but has been into art since he could hold a pencil. He also paints, sculpts and has more recently started 3D printing. Jesse got started in this industry at 21, after he turned 18 and was not happy with the results of the designs he drew for his friends to use as tattoos. He decided he should learn how to tattoo his own art. 

His favorite style of tattooing has changed a lot over the years. He has continued to enjoy doing black work but he also says, "I really enjoy doing more detailed, realistic style work. Some of my favorite things to tattoo is nature and science related stuff."

No matter what style of tattoo he is doing Jesse is a talented, caring Artist who said, "I feel very lucky to do art for a living. It is a privilege for me to do what I love." His love and passion show in his work and in his attention to his clients.

In town for a short weekend with the roller derby team. Walked in here for two of us to get some ink and was thoroughly impressed. The shop was incredibly clean, puppy absolutely cute, and artist very friendly. Jess Carr did our work and I was thrilled with his light hand and pleasant conversation! They deserve the five stars! Thanks guys for being a jewel of art in Portland!
