Jessie is teaching a Mini-class at Legacies III:
Handwritten: The Art of Tattoo Lettering

Jessie is an Artist and Tattooer at True Hand Society in Philadelphia and also a member of the Philadelphia Calligraphers’ Society. She has been a Tattooer for 20 years and specifically a lettering artist for about 10 years. Se has been lucky enough to study under several calligraphers and lettering artists through the Society of Scribes (NYC) and Cooper Union.Jesse has learned all types of lettering from Blackletter to Copperplate, hand lettering and beyond!

Studying calligraphy over the years has shown me proper composition and letter forms which I use in my work daily as a Tattooer! I’m excited to share the knowledge I have with anyone eager to better their craft!
