Owner/Resident artist Oregon

Jake Williams

My Name is Jake Williams, I am Co-owner at SubDermal Art Collective. Some people might know me as Jake “Overtime”. I was born and raised in Springfield, Oregon and even graduated from Springfield High School. “Overtime” is a name that has stuck with me throughout my career as a Tattoo Artist. I suppose it is a testament to my work ethic and passion for tattooing. I have always had a passion for art and an eye for creativity. I grew up watching my mother paint ceramics and create fun art for the family holidays. My first art class was at an old ran down turn of the century building on The University of Oregon campus at the young age of 5. I still remember the boards over the gaping holes in the floors and the scaffoldings erected for the endless repairs needed to the building. It has always been a very profound experience for me and certainly made an impact. I can remember participating in the holiday coloring contests they used to do at the grocery stores as a kid. I even managed to take first place in one of the Halloween contests. From there I was always a pencil and paper kind of kid. I took every Middle and High School art class I could possibly take. It got to the point where my Art Teacher eventually allowed me to come up with my own curriculum for her class because I had taken all of her courses. 

Throughout my career as a tattoo artist, I have made a point in trying to expose myself to all styles of tattooing. I wanted to have as much experience as possible to allow for a larger and more versatile portfolio. These days with my schedule being so far out you might find me being more selective of the projects I do take on. Realistic, hyper realistic, and high contrast black and grey tends to be what draws my interest these days. I’m also an avid outdoorsmen and passionate hunter so I find a lot of enjoyment in creating nature and wildlife themed tattoos.

I am currently charging 200/hr and have started asking for a $200 deposit as of recently because my books are so far out. Just a heads up to all clients. I look forward to meeting and working with you all in the future.
