Jason “Rosie” Lee
aka “Gentle” Jack Hammer
Hello. My name is Jason Lee and I have been tattooing since 1993. I have had the honor and pleasure of working with many great tattooists in many fantastic shops all around the globe during my career. What a long, strange trip it has been.
I just recently moved here to Santa Fe and am very happy to be here. I find the rich diversity of people and the vibrancy of the country and landscape here to be an inspiration. I am excited to get the chance to work with Guido and Owen and learn from them. I am very proud to work in such a beautiful shop, and am thankful to them for giving me this new opportunity.
I specialize in the classic tattoo styles, Polynesian, Japanese, and traditional Americana. I enjoy doing all kinds of subject matter, always rendered in a classic and timeless style. I am a student of all those who have paved the way before me in tattooing, and am grateful for the opportunity I have been given by them to work such an enjoyable craft. Thank you most specifically to Mr. Paulo Su’luape for his mentor ship and wisdom. He shared with me the most important aspects of tattooing, the joy of doing it and the reverence and respect of its tradition. He was a quiet giant. May his kind words forever stay present in my ears. They live in me.
I look forward to meeting you and collaborating on some tattoo art. Come by and check out the shop and our portfolios. Between the three of us, we should be able to accommodate any tattoo need you might have. Thank you for taking the time to read my humble biography.
