Jason “Sketchy” Lawyer is a world renowned tattoo artist and owner of Commonwealth Tattoo Gallery. He acquired his name Sketchy Lawyer from a combination of his last name and his observed love for sketching.
He began his tattoo career in his hometown, Virginia Beach, and has been tattooing for 11 years and counting. His career initially took off after he tattooed American Musician, Zac Brown. Seeing someone at that caliber believe in Jason is what made him believe in himself and push him towards success. From there, Jason has traveled to more than 10 countries to tattoo. He eventually moved to Senoia, Georgia and opened up Corner Stone Tattoo Gallery then moved back to Virginia Beach and currently owns Commonwealth Tattoo Gallery located in Norfolk, Virginia.
Opening a shop in Virginia has been his goal from the beginning of his tattooing career. Jason describes his style as “Neo-School” which is his own spin on “neo-traditional and “new school”.
His visit to Hawaii changed his life and made him realize that tattooing isn’t the only thing in the world and plans to focus more on his own art and branding in the future but until then, he’s focused on making his new shop flourish. “Many thanks to all the people being interested and getting tattooed, the never ending support, and my sponsors, Hustle Butter and Electric Ink. I hope to work with you in the future.”
