Jay announced the news on Instagram with a photo of himself in front of his business. He had been working at a tattoo shop named Ego Ink but has now leased his own space in Pennsylvania.
The reality star wrote, “As much as I enjoyed my time at Ego Ink with some amazing co-workers and boss, I have made the decision to branch off on my own! I am so excited to announce that Jay Skinz Tattoo is coming to York, Pennsylvania.”
Jay continued, “This process has not been easy at all but my shop is now under a complete renovation and will hopefully open in a little over a month. Thanks to my wife and family for supporting me in this decision and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. I appreciate all the love and support from everyone and can not wait to begin this journey as a business owner. I will be hiring 5 tattoo artists so if you’re in the area and looking for a job please send me a message.
