“I went to Jacki for a cover-up revision of an existing tattoo. I have been living w a tattoo that I did not love for a dozen years- I spent almost a year searching for the right artist. I am so grateful I found Jacki. She is a beautiful soul and amazing talent! She took so much time w me creating and sketching a piece so beautiful. Her work is amazing and was even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I highly recommend Jacki- her work is outstanding and the overall experience is truly amazing.
