Jessica Gold has always been an artist, with a love for painting and drawing that led her to take as many art classes as possible during school. She knew tattooing was her calling at the age of twelve: Inspired by shows like LA Ink and Miami Ink, she always thought it would be incredible to put her art on people forever.
When Jessica moved to Eugene in 2015, she spent time in tattoo studios getting to know the industry and many local artists. She did an eleven-month apprenticeship at Queen Bee Tattoo in Springfield. After getting her license, she joined the Black Label family. Jessica's favorite style of tattooing is definitely neotraditional. "I LOVE drawing lots of plants and animals because they’re so adorable and organic and overall fun to transfer from paper to skin," she says. Jessica is happy to work with a variety of clients to bring their tattoo to life, but her favorites are the clients who give her total creative freedom: "Nothing makes me happier than making something I’m proud of while also giving my client something that they’re proud to show off."
When Jessica isn't tattooing, you can find her exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest and spending time with friends. Get scheduled with her today by sending us an email or stopping by the shop!
