Happy New Year!

I hope Everyone had a great Holidays and Happy New Year! I have so many exciting things to announce, its been tough to keep everything under wraps!

I would like to start off by saying a big THANK YOU to all of my lovely clients! 2013 was a wonderfully crazy year! I can’t believe how quickly it flew by! Although its sad to see another year pass, (and the realization that Im another year older) Im excited for everything the new year will bring. Thank you to all of my wonderfully supportive clients. Its been amazing watching the evolution of all the projects. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for all of you. I am  so grateful for all the amazing people I have met along the way and look forward to making new and amazing friends and memories this new year!

I would like to invite everyone to our annual Sailor Jerry event. This year we will be celebrating Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins 103rd birthday.  In his honor we will be tattooing select Sailor Jerry designs all day and night for $103! Sailor Jerry Rum, Parkway Pizza, are sponsoring the birthday bash! Tons of tattooers, $103 tattoos, pizza and great company! Come and help us celebrate! The event will be held on Saturday January 18th 2014 at Leviticus Tattoo.

Vegas, mark your calendars, I have FINALLY planned my next trip! I am still finalizing some of the little details, but the tickets are booked and that always seems to be the biggest battle. The trip is scheduled for Jan 28- Feb 10. The time will be divided between Las Vegas, and California. If you would like to receive the updates, please be sure to subscribe to my newsletter if you haven’t already. The specifics will also be included in my next blog post “)las,vegas,tattoo,artist,female,jessi,lawson



If you find yourself wandering around a Barnes and Noble, stop by the magazine section and check out the December issue of Skin and ink featuring my lovely client Erin Kennedy. She was gracious enough to bring by a copy of the magazine during her visit over the holidays. It features the start of the 4 horseman of the apocalypse sleeve we have been working on, along with some other interesting articles.

In October I took a trip with a group of fellow tattooers to work the Paradise Island ink fest in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It was beautiful and the weather was phenomenal! I find myself daydreaming about the beaches….especially when were experiencing such extreme subzero temps here in Minnesota! Check out some photos from the trip!
