James Edward Quaintance III or Jimmy Q is a pro skater, model, tattoo artist and rock star born in Los Angeles. He is the lead singer of the punk rock band called Former Lovers.
James was originally a pro-skater but he started modeling in 2011 and immediately made an impression with his very signature look. He was born in Venice and was later signed by Select Models where he opened the door for tattooed models to walk the runway in serious shows. Jimmy was in all the major shows (Oliver Spencer, Pringle of Scotland) while also appearing in numerous magazines (Nylon, Huge, Wylder, lookbook for Beautiful Fül). James obviously loves tattoos and he is a walking talking piece of art and a promoter of the FreshTrends culture that’s so big in LA. He doesn’t only proudly showcase his tattoos, but he also practices – he’s a professional tattoo artist himself and did his apprenticeship in Venice.
