Jared is a life-long visual artist focusing in drawing and painting. The Coast Guard brought him from his hometown of Hampton, VA to Search and Rescue Station New Haven in 2003. During his last two years of Coast Guard duty he apprenticed in his off time and began tattooing full time in 2009. He specializes in black and grey, and his style would be best described as “illustrative realism”. He enjoys all things nature-based and anything spooky. He loves fishing, fatherhood, and family.
