Turning “disasterpieces into masterpieces,” the 25-year-old will once again come to the rescue of those who failed to think before they ink on E4 series, Tattoo Fixers.

“Gentle Jay” who runs the Adrenaline studio in Ellesmere Port, said he thinks the second series will have more shocks in store.

Along with fellow artists, Sketch and Lou, the trio will start shooting scenes at the pop-up tattoo parlour in London on Wednesday.

Speaking to the Daily Post , Jay said: “I’m really looking forward to filming for the next series.

“I’ve got no idea what’s in store but something tells me it will be more shocking than the first.

“It’s great doing something you love so much and it’s a great feeling knowing you can transform people’s lives by giving them confidence.

“Hearing some of the heart-wrenching stories on the show, you really don’t realise how much a bad tattoo can ruin people’s lives.”

 

Hutton, from Abergele, he’s been busy with guest appearances at various venues up and down the country.

“It’s been pretty manic, but I love it. I was so glad when the producers told me they wanted to shoot another series.”

Famous tattoos

Series one saw the former Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan pupil tattoo a poignant chest piece on a Royal Marine who’d had his leg blown off, which had left his Liverpool FC tribute missing a word and reading “You’ll Never Walk”.

He also inked an avid Coronation Street star who left the studio with a portrait on his leg of Deirdre Barlow.

Jay said: “I see shocking tattoos on a daily basis, but filming Tattoo Fixers just took it to another level.

“Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, it did.

“And then when I thought nothing could shock me more, someone else would come in and completely blow me away.”

Jay landed the role as one of the UK’s fixer-uppers when examples of his work posted on social media caught the attention of producers.

Since then, his Twitter followers have rocketed from 7,000 to 73,000.
