Season 2 Veteran
Jesse Smith discovered his love of art while living in Germany as an "army brat" teen. It was there that he became interested in urban culture and graffiti art. Being eliminated in season 2 hasn't slowed Smith down. He says it has helped him grow as an artist at his shop, Loose Screw Tattoos in Richmond, VA. He's ready to use his eccentric distinctive style of art to take home the Ink Master title.
