Jessica Gahring from "NY Ink" stars in the TLC reality docu-series.

Jessica Gahring ("NY Ink)" is no stranger to art, professionalism and dramatic flair. Her artistic influence grew out of her father's love and passion for the fine arts. As a child, Jessica recalls, "I remember looking at the pieces that my Dad drew and painted and I couldn't believe his ability to duplicate a human face onto the paper. It absolutely blew my mind! I never once thought, 'Hey I can do that' but I do remember watching his methods and would try my best to duplicate them myself." According to Jessica, art was the one true thing that connected her to her father while growing up. "Art was his every-once-in-a-while passion and the end result looked as if he'd been drawing every day of his entire life," she reminisces.

Gahring graduated from Vestal High School in 2000 and immediately started college at a private all-women's college. She completed her B.A. in Sociology: Global Cultures & Inequalities from Russell Sage College in 2004 and began her M.S. Degree the following fall. She graduated in 2005 with a degree in Educational Administration & Policy Studies.

Gahring took a job as a mid-level manager in banking in 2010, hoping to gain greater insight into the financial side of running an effective business. "I knew that banking wasn't a job I would hold forever but it exposed me to the different processes of running and maintaining a financially healthy business. I learned what to do and what not to do in business. I have always wanted to operate my own business and I never jump into anything without doing my homework!" she recalls. It was during this brief stint in banking that Jessica learned of Ami James's newest business endeavor, "NY Ink." She jumped at the opportunity to work for him as the shop's manager.
