Adam Jelinski’s Tattoo Portfolio:
I have been tattooing for the better part of 18 years. While pursuing an English degree at the University of Montana in Missoula, I soon fell in love with tattooing after receiving my first couple. I’ve drawn and painted my whole life and always wanted to make a living doing what I love. I got lucky and found an apprenticeship at Painless Steel in 1996.
I’ve worked with a lot of great artists over the years, trying to learn from each. I still strive to improve every day. I want to master all graphic forms with my own style. I love working with my clients to produce original work that will age well as a beautiful and unique piece of art. Every style speaks to me in a different way, from Japanese to traditional American tattoos with full color, or smooth black and grey. I love it all.
