Early Life

On April 6, 1972, Ami James was born in Sharm El Sheikh, a city in Egypt; his father was American-born but converted to Judaism three years before he could move to Israel; it was here that he joined the Israeli army and met a beautiful who had also emigrated from Romania, they got married, and James was born to them.

As a child, he had lived in both Israel and Egypt, but by the time he was 4, his father had left his family; he struggled most of his childhood; even though Ami had a brother Natan Shai James, he felt alone.

When Ami was just a kid,  he was diagnosed with severe Attention Deficit Disorder, and art was the only way Ami could express himself; this created an interest in drawing and tattoos, as his father also had tattoos and was a painter.

At the age of 11, he moved to the US to live with his grandparents; he stayed with them for a year and then moved to Miami; at the age of 15, Ami got his first tattoo and fell in love with the whole process so much that he was determined to become a tattoo artist, himself.

But before that, he had to complete his military service, so he moved back to Israel and joined the Israel Defense Forces as an Infantry sniper.
