Thoughts and condolences go to Tracy, the boys, and all family and friends in the difficult time. Jim always had a way with knowing when something wasn't ok, and talking you through things. He loved talking about Tracy and the boys! There was never a dull moment in the shop, and will miss going to get something me ink or just to chat. May you Rest In Peace Jim. My deepest condolences!

James was a great man. I meet him last summer when he did a tattoo for a mutual friend of ours. We then went on to work together at Alorica. Jim was always so nice and kind he would give me a ride home after work at times if I did not have one and he was always a great friend to me! Jim you will be missed by many. RIP.

Prayers to the family and friends of Jim.... I First met him when I was 16 My mom signed for me to get my street tat covered up. I picked a blue rose with tribal. It came out looking perfect! I came back for more tattoos and a few piercings through the years. He always made me feel comfortable even though I was nervous. If I was upset about something in life he noticed and he spoke with me about it. I always left there in a better mood. He would always joke around but yet be professional at the same time. He spoke a lot about his wife and kids. We talked a lot about his best friend that had pasted that happened to be my best friends dad..... he was an awesome person. My condolences go out to the family and friends.
