Jake Thorsell

I was born in Buffalo NY, but have spent most of my life in Charlotte NC. I developed a strong work ethic in construction, but tattooing was my dream.

I’ve had a passion for art ever since my grandmother put markers in my hands and after countless attempts and missed direction I was introduced to Joey Vernon. Joey gave me a rare opportunity, a proper apprenticeship at the Fu’s Custom Tattoos. Here I was able to apply the same strong work ethic towards my new craft. You can still find me here every day except for Thursdays and Sundays.
