Though initially we had anticipated working only with Robert Alleyne at Charmed Life Tattoo, his friend and business partner Jay Armstrong joined Robert in creating the tattoos for The Lexington Tattoo Project when he realized that the long days of letters and circles were beginning to play tricks on Robert’s eyes.
Jay and Robert, then, started taking turns: Robert did tattoos for The Lexington Tattoo Project one day, Jay did them the next. While photographing the healed tattoos, we heard nothing but praise for both Robert and Jay.
Like Robert, Jay made great letters and circles. Also like Robert, Jay is much better known for his image-based tattoos. We have included two samples of this work below.
