My name is Jay Weir, but I also go by Docta J.
I’ve had an interest in tattoos ever since I was young but never thought it would be a career, a lifestyle, for me until I got older and started getting more involved in the industry. I started going with my best friend, like a brother and eventually my mentor, to a few tattoo conventions, and it was at that point I started to want to be a tattoo artist. At that point I asked my brother if he would mentor me to which he agreed. That was 7 years ago and I have been tattooing professionally for 5 years now.
I have dabbled in a bunch of different styles, but I have become the most passionate about American Traditional and Neo-Traditional doing big vibrant pieces. My goal in the industry is to become fluent in every aspect of color tattooing.
