My name is Jim Adams. From an early age I’ve always been surrounding myself with art and creativity. After getting my bachelors degree of liberal arts at Umass Lowell, I moved down to Connecticut to pursue a career in the tattoo industry.

I was trained in house at Nautilus Tattoo after several years as shop manager. I began my tattooing career in July 2012.

I enjoy working with traditional, neo traditional and Japanese motifs in both tattooing and painting. I consider the artwork that I do to be an extension of myself and enjoy the honor of bestowing my vision on someone’s skin that they will enjoy and have with them for the rest of their life.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my body of work including both healed and fresh pictures.  For more pictures of in progress projects I am working on you can follow me on Instagram @sickofjim.
