JJ (Jason John) Adams was born in Plymouth, England in March 1978. The son of a Baptist minister and the first of three children, he moved with his parents to Cape Town, South Africa in 1984. There, he studied at Bergvliet High school, later pursuing graphic design at Cape College. JJ Adams has been described as a rebellious child, being expelled from boarding school and kicked out of college after smashing a window with an electric guitar. While living in Cape Town he worked in a 'Wildfire Tattoos' tattoo parlour for several years, which he says influenced his interests. His family returned to Plymouth, England in 1998.
From Plymouth, JJ Adams decided to move to London to become a tattoo artist. After several years working in Camden Market, he returned to Plymouth, where he attended Plymouth College of Art to study commercial printing. He describes giving up the dream when he "realised it wasn't what I was meant to be." After his studies, JJ Adams moved to Kingsbridge, Plymouth and started his own commercial sign and graphic design business, while working on his art in his spare time. After selling a few of his acrylic paintings through a local gallery in 2009, JJ Adams decided it was time to move back to London and finally pursue his art career.
