Reactor-88’s Custom Corner – Jason Jacenko


Welcome to Reactor-88’s Custom Corner. For the month of November we’re highlighting Jason Jacenko. Jason runs 626ink- a custom tattoo studio and gallery in Melbourne, Australia. He’s been tattooing for twenty years and has been a standout in the custom toy scene for as long as I can remember. His work leans toward the creepy, but even his scariest characters always seem to have some lovable quality to them- I think it’s the eyes. The most impressive aspects of his work for me are the accuracy and attention to detail that he injects into each piece he creates- they almost look alive. Also, the texture and depth in his work can look so realistic it’s easy to forget you’re looking at a flat toy surface. So if you’re like me and want to make sure you don’t miss any of Jason’s work, be sure to friend him over on Facebook – he shows some great work in progress shots. If you’d like to purchase one of Jason’s paintings or custom toys, be sure to check out his new online store.
