Mick J is a self taught artist with 30 years experience.
Whilst creating custom paint jobs on cars and bikes with some success, he won a few awards and had some magazine features. During this time he created bespoke mirrors and clocks from wood and custom painting them.
His direction changed again when he was asked to join a tattoo shop.
He had grown up around a tattoo shop in London and had spent many an afternoon there when i should have been at school. "Tattooing has been my life for the last 20 years- the craziest ride of all !! "
A few years ago Mick J was diagnosed with M.E/Chronic fatigue syndrome which made him take a step back from tattooing as he could not always keep appointments, this led him back to painting again.
