Jakeita Days, also known as Queen of Mixxxys, Sky Days and FlyyyTattedsky, is a TV series personality you can see in the show called “Black Ink Crew” on VH1. Jakeita had a hard path to success, but what she owns now she got with her own hands, passionate attitude to everything she does, and full dedication to her dreams. Let’s find out more about her sons, age, net worth and tattoos.
Early life, family
Jakeita Sky Days was born on 19 September 1983 in Harlem, New York City USA, where he spent her childhood with her family. Her mother’s name is unknown, though she sometimes appears in Jakieta’s Instagram videos to say something to the world. She recently shared her thoughts on self-esteem and advised Jakeita’s followers to love themselves as she thought it was the only way to be happy. Jakeita has very warm relationship with her mother, since she supported her in hard times. Being a teenager, Jakeita fell in love with a guy from her neighborhood and got pregnant twice. She gave birth to her first son, Genesis, when she was only 14 years old, and her second son, Dessalines, was born when she was 16. Jakeita tried to raise them with the help and support of her mother, who suffers from bipolar disorder, but women soon understood they didn’t have enough hands and money to take good care of the boys, so Jakeita’s mother suggested giving the toddlers up for adoption, and an exhausted Jakeita agreed. Her sons were adopted by different families and spend their life not knowing much about their biological mother. When they both turned 18, Jakeita decided to reunite with them, getting in touch with Genesis and Dessalines, but, as she shared in one of her interviews to Refinery29, it was not smooth and easy. She didn’t want to put her sons’ faces on social media or TV before they turned 18, and now some people criticize Jakeita for giving-up her kids, and belated efforts to connect with them when they are already adults.
Jakeita attended a local high school in Harlem, though she had to take a year off twice to give birth to her sons, so it wasn’t easy for her to matriculate from her school. There’s no information about her college education, but most likely she didn’t obtain any degree, diving right into hard work to earn money and to help her mother to survive their family financial struggles. As for her later education, she attended Empire Beauty School at Pottsville.
Jakeita started her career in the position of a receptionist at a tattoo shop and studio called Black Ink Crew. She also tried to become an actress and a make-up artist at Bella Honey Cosmetics in New York, to better understand which fields of activities she could benefit from. However, fame found Jakeita since Black Ink Crew signed a contract with VH1 channel in 2013, and started to film a TV show about the life of the tattoo salon. Jakeita appeared in the series only in the second season, but very soon became a major personality of the show though she wasn’t even a tattoo artist. She charmed the audience with her honest emotional reactions which she never hid, her passionate attitude to the tattoo business and her extravagant looks. By the end of the fifth season of the show the producers decided to make Jakeita a manager of a new tattoo salon Black Ink: Atlanta, making additional episodes about the new shop. Jakeita was very convincing in her new role, quickly gained acceptance of the audience.
Becoming a TV personality, Jakeita was invited to host various events, such as “Slay Day All White Yacht Boat Party” in New York, “Mocha Fest” in Negril, Jamaica, and “Vivid Saturdays” (LGBT parties) at Providence Rhode Island. Jakeita now also owns a clothing boutique called Her Little Secret, located in Miami, Florida. As for her TV series career, she appeared in two more shows: Hip Hop Squares (2012) and Scared Famous (2017).
Jakeita is said to be single for the moment, but her private life was always a hot topic to discuss. Last year she had an affair with the reality star Teddy Ruks, who is also a personality from Black Ink Crew, but they broke up in 2018 for no particular reason. It’s worth saying that a man named Elliot, who claimed to be Jakeita’s sons’ father, also appeared in the series Black Ink Crew. In one of the episodes he showed up and tried to get in touch with Jakeita, but she denied all his efforts to discuss the current situations about their (supposed) sons.
