Jacob was born and raised in Breckenridge Colorado where he spent most of his time outdoors. He grew up sketching and painting the nature around him. While attending college, Jacob began getting tattooed from Paul Lunetta and was inspired to go back to his original art passion. He then spent two years learning from Curtis Haggerty in Copper Mountain Colorado. Recently Jacob has returned to Grand Junction to finish pursuing his artistic ability as a tattoo artist at Dark Valley Tattoo Collective. He specializes in Black and grey, while adding elements of dot-work and large scale nature based designs. Jacob loves creating unique and powerful designs made specific to each client.
