It’s not always about Sneakers

Two Js Kicks has not only a love for sneakers, but also a love for ink.  We were fortunate enough to get in some time with Pako Barragan, who has done most of Jaysse’s ink.  If you’re local to Vegas, and you’ve come across us in a sneaker line or anywhere else in the streets, you have likely seen Jaysse sans shirt, displaying Pako’s amazing work.  (I’m always teasing Jay about the fact that half of Vegas has seen my man without his shirt).   If you haven’t yet, it’s only a matter of time!

The piece is not yet complete, so you’ll only get a little tease with this post.  John Legend says it best when he speaks of music:  “I never listen to leaks.   Always want to wait ’til I’m sure it’s the version the artist wants to release.  Mixed, mastered, and paid for.”  We’ll post again with the finished product, but let’s give it some time to let Pako to finish out and complete the magic that he does with a tattoo gun (when our schedules align with his)… it’ll be worth the wait.
