Jen was born and raised in New York City. She studied art at SUNY New Paltz and received a BFA in Metalsmithing. After college, Jen started a custom jewelry company and sold her pieces through the original East Side Ink. She also taught Metalsmithing. In 2007, Jen and her partners opened East Side Ink in the East Village in NYC. Just a few years later, Jen and her partners opened another tattoo shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, called Graceland.


Jen has been in the tattoo community for over 20 years but has never wanted to tattoo until Microblading made its way to the United States. Microblading is a perfect marriage of sculpture and tattooing for Jen. Jen loves to sculpt each brow individually for each person's face. Jen loves to Microblade eyebrows at her two tattoo shops, where she can spend time with and be inspired by the incredibly talented artists who work there.


In her free time, Jen is a homebody who likes spending time with her husband and two children.
