With his fictional continent, Ink Master tattoo artist Jesse Smith is venturing into the metaverse with his new NFT project. In fact, it is a multifaceted story-based project centered around the fictional continent of Carkayous.
The Idea Behind Jesse Smith’s Carkayous
According to the celebrity tattoo artist, “Carkayous was born out of the need to create more depth” within his work. Thus, Smith created the fictitious continent Carkayous where all of his inked characters can live and interact with one another.
“I had the idea kind of brewing around in my head for a while,” Jesse Smith stated. “But one of the things that kinda kicked it over the edge was when I went to Universal Studios.”
While riding the Dr. Seuss roller coaster, he recalled thinking, “I need to create a world like this.”
