Jay Freestyle says, "Give me a piece of your skin and I'll give you a piece of my soul." Other artists might hesitate to work so unrestrained in a medium so permanent. Yet this self-taught artist living in Amsterdam has proven that he can render beautiful tattoos without stencils or sketches.
But wait--wouldn't a client want to go into a tattoo with a clear plan of the outcome? Maybe at the beginning. But Jay Freestyle knows how to build up trust:
People try to come to Jay with extremely detailed ideas, but after talking it through and hearing his extreme knowledge about aesthetics, placement, colouring, size and symbolism; almost all turn around and say: 'Go for it, I trust you blindly' - and he never disappoints.
He regularly tattoos first timers who feel no fear and fully trust in his respect and understanding of his clients' wishes.
