“Gentle” Jen Mattheson – Artist Spotlight Mantra Tattoo
For our next artist spotlight, we’d like to feature “Gentle” Jen Mattheson. Jen has been with us since the very beginning of Mantra Tattoo in 1997. She holds her own as the only female tattoo artist at Mantra which says a lot for her level of stamina and patience!
Jen started her apprenticeship at a traditional old school mom and pop biker shop. She was persistent enough until they agreed to give her a shot. That was about 20 years ago. Since then, she has worked in several shops around the country and has participated in tattoo conventions.
Jen’s style is super versatile. From portraiture, where shading is the main component, to clean, intricate line and dotwork where the contours of the line give the piece depth (total opposites of each other) she rocks ’em all.
She loves getting out into nature, spending time with her dogs camping, hiking, fishing and generally connecting with nature. Her love of nature make her tattoos come to life.
Clients come to Jen not only for her talent and versatility but also for her kind, caring and gentle nature. That’s exactly why she’s known as “Gentle” Jen.
