Jacob Medeiros has been tattooing for over five years. Initially, perfecting his craft was a part-time initiative – practicing on friends and family, but since joining Pride Ink, working side by side with other freehand, Polynesian artists, Jacob was able to further develop his beloved black and grey art form. Growing up in Maui, he was surrounded by Polynesian art of all kinds – music, tattoos, drawing and more, and what stood out most was the originality of every piece. Jacob’s shared appreciation for the individuality of Polynesian art is further developed through his own interpretation on skin. He finds inspiration in everything around him and looks forward to sharing that creative enthusiasm with his clients to develop original works together.
