Jay Arellano 

I was born in Denver, Colorado in 1979 and moved to Montana in 1992. After spending a few years in the army I came back and went on to pursue a tattoo apprenticeship under Detail Dave, here at Altered Skin. After spending a few years at Altered Skin I moved to Flagstaff Arizona and worked at the local tattoo shop Burly Fish. In 2011 I made my way back home to Missoula with a new outlook on my skill. In recent years I have taken up painting which I think is essential in becoming a tattoo artist that strives to produce only the best. I pride myself on having the ability to take your complex concept and make it into a fine piece of art on your skin! Using good composition with movement that works with the curvature of the individual is my main goal. I am humbled to have such amazing clients and look forward to meeting and working with many more in the years to come.
