My name is Jonathan Wade , I’m originally from Philadelphia PA. I love all styles of tattooing, leaning towards neo-traditional, new school and realism the most. Most of all I love the fact that I get the privilege of giving a piece of art to my clients that they will have forever.
Art has always been a big part of my life. At a young age I immersed myself in. Drawing , painting , photography it was always my passion. But after High School life had different plans for me and sadly I left it all behind.
After some life changing events in my 20s I decided to fully embrace my artistic side again and it lead me tattooing. In 2003 I started my apprenticeship under Joseph “Big Bear “ Patroski. I immediately knew I had found my calling. Tattooing has allowed me the luxury of traveling all over the United States chasing my dreams , meeting my idols and realizing that I am capable of anything I put my heart into.
