Meet Jack the owner and the lead black and grey artists at Lucky 13. His journey started out slightly unconventionally, which sums up our Jack to a tee! This guy is self taught, and so with no help he managed to walk straight in to a tattooist position at a busy studio in Loughborough.
After a few years he started collecting tattoos from other studios which led him straight to Lucky 13. At the time, the owner was looking to sell the business and this is where Jack's real journey truly began.
Jack's main love is black and grey realism, his waiting list is a reflection of his popularity. Many of his clients would simply say 'he's worth the wait'. With that having been said, he is forever trying to squeeze extra hours in to his already busy schedule to get people in sooner. A definite people pleaser, Jack will go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and more importantly give you a great tattoo.

This is Francheska! Fran has been drawing since she can remember, after originally going into higher education and in particular art and fashion, Francheska found herself in various different jobs but as none of them quite felt right she eventually decided to quit them in order to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a tattoo artist.
Francheska has now been tattooing for three years and specialises in dot work, mandala, geometrics, florals and is now practicing colour and shading in order to delve further into the world of realism.
