James Jang

Tattoo Artist

Growing up in New Zealand, James Jang was always passionate about art.  Putting his creativity on hold, he started a career as a Mechanical Engineer but quickly found that his artistic passions pulled him in another direction.


In 2015, James’ tattoo career began in a little beach town in New Zealand called Mount Maunganui.  He was apprenticed and mentored by one of icons of industry – Pepa Heller, the Owner of Bohemian Tattoo Arts.


Working in a street shop, James was exposed to a wide range of different styles but was quickly drawn to the timelessness of black and grey realism. He has carried his work throughout Oceania, Asia and North America completing numerous guest spots and attending world class tattoo conventions, always striving to learn from the best in industry.

In April 2019 James relocated to Ottawa, Canada where he continues to push the boundaries of his designs, bringing his world class skills to the Capital region.
