Custom Tattoos




Hi I'm James, a Tattoo Artist based in Ponchatoula, Louisiana at Rougarou Collective Tattoo Company.  I've been tattooing for 8 years, and absolutely love what I do.

My style of tattooing is primarily illustrative in nature, but I also work in many other styles ranging from American Traditional, to black and grey realism.



I’ve been going to James for years now and people constantly ask me for the name of my artist upon seeing his work, very professional, clean shop. I always come in with an idea and James makes it a masterpiece.
James does a great job! Came out loving my new art. Worked with my sister’s art to make something that would work well as a tattoo it is more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed.
We called and James had an opening, so we stopped by. He did a GREAT job. He’s a real artist and made my first tattoo experience easy. Would definitely recommend again.

About Me

Art has always been in the forefront of anything i do. I began drawing and painting at a very young age, and never stopped. I studied fashion in college, and worked in that industry for a time, but ultimately settled on the idea of tattooing. i had always wanted to work in an artistic field, but was never much for mainstream art, and being a lover of tattoos it made sense to make the transition. i’ve been tattooing ever since.

I feel that the day you think you know everything, is the day you should quit, so i am always looking to learn and grow as an artist.
