Jim LoPresti is engaged in tattooing since 1996, first working at Black Rock and then at New Haven tattoo parlors. In 2001 opened Lucky Soul Tattoo, where he focused on black-and-grey realism work being one of his specialties. The artist’s passion for bringing photos to life on the skin is evident, he captures portraits of friends and family members or adored pets, landscapes, or sculptures on tattoos.
In the 20 years that Jim has been in the tattoo industry, he’s won many awards and trophies for his black & gray work at conventions throughout America, as well receiving focus from national tattoo magazines. He still stands out because of how friendly he is to others who are also here trying their best in tattooing like him!
