Jake Meeks has been tattooing since 1996 and founded the Fireside Tattoo Network in 2013 with the goal of "blurring the lines" between tattooing and fine art.


In 2016 Jake introduced the "Fireside Method" which aims to help tattooers simplify and improve their work by focusing on the principles of Shape, Value, Edge and Color. 


The Fireside Method has been the base for Jake's teaching over the last 5 years as he travels with the Fireside team, podcasting and teaching seminars and workshops
