Jen Beirola launched her tattoo career in 1999, while enlisted in the US Air Force. She did an apprenticeship at Grinn & Barrett Tattoo and took over ownership at the close of her enlistment. Jen was able to maintain the deployment lifestyle that she had become accustomed to in the Air Force. She stayed based in Omaha, Nebraska and was able to continue traveling the globe tattooing.
Jen is currently living and working in Boston. She is a stylistically versatile artist, that enjoys working with clients’ ideas to design tattoos that are specific to each individual. Her strengths and interests include hand drawn lettering, script, American Traditional, and Japanese Tattooing. On days that Jen is not at the shop tattooing, she is exploring the relationship between tattooing and fine art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
