Jenna grew up in an artistic family. Her grandmother, being a painter, was her main influence. Drawing and painting was a passion she had all her life, she even skipped recess sometimes to paint with the art teacher. In her first year of college it was suggested to her to become a tattoo artist and she didn’t think it was such a bad idea. she finished art school with her B.F.A. in painting and drawing and her A.V.A. in Graphic design. "Going Through art school, trying different types of art, seeing what opportunities I had available to me I came to conclusion that my place is not sitting in an office, a pottery studio, a gallery, or taking photos at a wedding, it’s in a tattoo shop."
