ORIGIN STORY

Born of fickle nature, Jesse is constantly scouring every corner of the earth in search of things to fill his creative void. From an early age it was rather obvious that he was a little off. A master of many mediums, Jesse was once spotted decorating the wall beside his crib with the contents of his diaper. That is when his creative adventure would begin. Since then, Jesse has conquered many other mediums, the latest of which being the tattoo machine. At the age of 21, Jesse stumbled upon a fella named Carlos who tattooed out of his house. Carlos enjoyed Jesse’s art and soon taught him how to build a ghetto gun. From that point on, tattooing consumed every minute of his life and he was on a mission to learn as much as he could about this artform.

ACHIEVEMENTS

While steady crunchin along in the tattoo world, Jesse decided to move to Richmond, Virginia to seek a Bachelor's Degree in Fine art at VCU. In December of 2004 he received his degree and hit the ground running. Since then he has been published in almost every tattoo magazine, has won a ton of awards for his brilliant use of color and he even found his way onto a reality TV show called Ink Master. He now still resides in Richmond, Virginia where he owns his own tattoo studio called Loose Screw Tattoo. It is here that he is constantly pushing his artwork into different avenues and directions.

NFT VISION

One of his newest adventures has led him into the NFT world. Jesse has created a fictitious continent called Carkayous in 2009 for all of his tattoos and art to reside. The NFT space has proven to be a place where this continent can flourish. With thousands of characters already developed, in a plethora of different mediums which span from tattoos to digital art, Jesse is perfectly poised to enter the NFT space and hit the ground running. His fanbase is loyal and ready to follow.
