Speakeasy Tattoo

Jennifer has been tattooing since May of 2000 but has been drawing since she was very young. She began painting and studying art history in high school and continued through college and graduate school. Jennifer's love of modern art has driven her to think conceptually about her tattoo work. She enjoys doing many styles but prefers American traditional and folk art-inspired tattoos. Aside from tattooing, she also enjoys working with watercolor and acrylic paint.
